Tenaris Backs Veren’s Record Lateral Well in Canada

Tenaris has achieved a milestone in drilling by completing the longest onshore well in Canada, located in Alberta’s Duvernay basin, with a 5,400-meter lateral. Tenaris supplied OCTG and TenarisHydril premium connections for this record-setting operation.

Veren extended the well during drilling to achieve this lateral length record. Tenaris supported the project with premium technologies, including TenarisHydril Wedge™ Series 400 premium connections, and provided Rig Direct® service to streamline the supply chain.

Adam Praski, Drilling Team Lead for Veren, stated, “With Tenaris’s assistance, we confirmed that our standard casing design would work for this extended reach well. The combination of Wedge™ and TXP® BTC connections provided us with a rotational capability contingency option.”

The Wedge™ Series 400 connections’ robust design addressed the demanding shale conditions during drilling. High galling resistance and exceptional performance under extreme torque levels facilitated smooth operations, contributing to the successful completion of the well in a single bit run.

Tenaris’s technical team collaborated closely with Veren, offering tailored solutions and expertise to optimize the drilling process. This collaboration resulted in significant time and cost savings, with the project completed ahead of schedule and without any non-productive time (NPT).

“Our experience with Tenaris is highly positive. The technical assistance team has routinely gone above and beyond with detailed and professional service,” added Praski.

“Tenaris remains committed to supporting Veren and other drilling operators in Canada with advanced products, connection technology, and customized solutions, ensuring ongoing innovation and customer success,” said Shellie Clark, Vice President Commercial in Canada.
