This agreement brings together two companies that are both focused on better servicing the OCTG market. With Energex Tube's diversified tubular portfolio combined with Metal One's strong family of connections and well-established technical service network, I envision this as the beginning of a long and prosperous partnership.
Metal One's proprietary connections will be offered in North America by Energex Tube. These connections include, but are not limited to:
- GEOCONN—A semi-premium casing connection in sizes 4.5" OD through 20" OD, for use in drilling with casing applications and SAGD (steam-assisted gravity drainage), as well as geothermal wells.
- SUPERMAX—A tubing and casing non-upset connection in sizes 1.900" OD through 4.5" OD, with better clearance and improved work string capability.
The Metal One connections enhance the value of our products and provide tubing and casing connection solutions for our North American E&P customers. We are certainly excited about the opportunity to team up with a global company like Metal One and work together to better serve customers.
