The Interpipe Premium connection UPJ-M has successfully passed a qualification test in accordance with ISO 13679 CAL IV. The construction of oil and gas wells has become more intricate over the course of the last ten years. Today, deviated or horizontal wells are widespread across the world. To be able to comply with new challenges, new types of premium connections come into place and start to play a significant role in well construction.

The CAL IV (CAL – connection application level) test proves UPJ-M to be high-end technology. The test has been carried out in Italy.

The connection design allows it to be used in the most severe well conditions. Along with corrosion-resistant alloys and sour service material, UPJ-M can be used in hydrogen sulfite and carbon dioxide environments.

Interpipe Field Service provided on 24/7 base brings new benefits for its customers. FISE engineers help to assure smooth and safe running, providing the best practices when needed.

A CAL IV connection is a mandatory requirement in many oil and gas projects in the Middle East, Asia-Pacific, Latin and Central America, and the CIS. UPJ-M will enable compliance with this specific requirement.

Interpipe UPJ-M Premium connection has been used in Ukraine gas fields since 2017. It was specifically designed to meet severe drilling conditions of UkrGasVydobuvannya, major gas company in Ukraine.

Mr Boris Lomakin, Premium Connection Department Director, said that “Oil & Gas companies can rely on UPJ-M Premium Connection even in HPHT/deep wells. The connection salability assures leak-prevention, which makes it an environmentally friendly product. The successfully passed ISO 13679 CAL IV test proves that UPJ-M meets the highest industry requirements for premium connections.”

From now on, the Interpipe portfolio includes API, GOST connections, UPJ (the first Interpipe’s Premium connection), JFEBEAR (licensed from JFE) and UPJ-M Premium Connection (ISO 13679 CAL IV qualified).
