Virtual testing for performance validation

Premium connections have become a critical aspect of well design in today’s unconventional drilling environments, and the rapid development of connections starts with virtual testing.

At the Research & Development Center, our metallurgists and engineers apply finite element analysis and other advanced techniques to generate 3D predictive modeling to virtually validate connection performance prior to physical testing. This saves our customers both time and money. These in-house capabilities allow us to cost effectively develop multiple prototypes that represent a broad range of performance properties.
