GEOCONN Low Cost & High Performance Casing Connection
GEOCONN Feature of Design
Completely Interchangeable with API BTC. As GEOCONN is perfectly interchangeable with API Buttress, Casing accessories with Buttress threas can be used.
Internally Flush With Pin Abutment
– Prevention of turbelence flow
– High over torque resistance
– Abutment works as metal seal under medium tension road
– High fatigue resistance
API Buttress VS GEOCONN
Manufacturing of GEOCONN
Manufacturing of GEOCONN is almost same as Buttress, except shorter coupling length and mill end make up.
GEOCONN Mill Make-Up Position
Mill tight end is made up deeper than field tight end to prevent mill end rotation during field end make up. Make up distance on both ends were chosen to provide good leak resistance and prevent from too high hoop stress on the coupling.
GEOCONN Examples of Application
– Prevention of turbulence flow.
Drilling with Casing
– For high torque resistance.
– Full string for Shale or tight plays.
– Liner for SAGD wells.
