Leading the way

Horizontal Shale Service Is Everything You Know About Casing Only Better; Patented & Innovative Premium Connections.

HOSS® WORKS THE WAY YOU DO

WITH OUR TIGHTER & STRONGER CONNECTOR, HOSS KEEPS YOUR COMPLETIONS ON TIME, EVERY TIME.

100% TENSION-THREADING

The HOSS® uses contoured radial metal pin seals and a reverse angle torque shoulder providing a higher contact area with the coupling while counteracting high torque loads.

Details
  • OVER-TORQUE: The HOSS® features better over-torque characteristics which keeps the coupling intact and provides a better chance of drift-ability past yield.
  • LOW HOOP STRESS: Knowing that hoop stress in a slightly salty, acidic, or sour environment is detrimental, due to its low hoop stress, a HOSS® will remain intact.
  • DURABLE SEALING: The reverse angle pin nose to box shoulder contact allows for higher bending loads and structural comprehensive loads while maintaining its seal.
  • TRAPS THE SEAL:  A HOSS® traps the seal area to prevent high torque pin nose collapse. The reverse angle also counteracts the included angle of the taper and load flank.

100% SEALING CAPABILITY

The thicker coupling takes higher frac pressures and supports thicker wall pipe with 100% matched pipe strength, and provides more strength when utilizing high collapse or enhanced burst strength pipe.

33% HIGHER TORQUE

The HOSS® provides 100% tensile and compressive strength on thicker and higher yield pipe; Uses tightly knit thread to create a barrier to pressure penetration and stabilizes the radial seals.

The design difference

This specialty premium connection was engineered specifically for horizontal shale service. The HOSS® premium connection was designed to withstand higher torques, severe bends and higher frac pressures.

FIELD DEVELOPED. FIELD PROVEN.

With the new HOSS® premium connection, you get low hoop stresses in critical areas to resist fatigue from rotating and bending under high torque, and 100% tensile and compressive strength on thicker high collapse pipe.

THE HOSS DIFFERENCE

IT'S TIGHTER

Designed to retain high-performance gas tightness after rotating and fracing.

IT'S SAFER

Tested and sealed tight, preventing the leakage of well-bore fluids and gases, exceeds pipe body ratings.

IT'S STRONGER

Stronger than the pipe body.  Designed for bending, rotating and reciprocating through horizontal sections.

TIGHTER. SAFER. STRONGER.
