USS-PATRIOT TC® Premium OCTG Connections

The premium connection specially designed to handle the challenges of extended reach applications.

The U. S. Steel Tubular Products USS-PATRIOT TC® is one of the first premium connections specifically designed to overcome the challenging drilling conditions encountered in the Marcellus Shale and other extended reach drilling applications.

Available in OD sizes ranging from 4-1/2 to 7-5/8 inches, these rugged connections deliver features and benefits that manage the intense axial friction, drag and wear that are inevitable in extreme step-outs.

  • Radial Interference Fit Metal-to-Metal Seal has a unique design, which provides gas-tight service with an internal yield pressure rating equal to API pipe body rating.
  • Robust Internal Shoulder uses reverse angle torque shoulder to create a positive stop and control seal make-up.
  • Smooth Internal Transition minimizes turbulence and prevents hang-up of downhole tools.
  • Optimized Run-out Thread Design yields tensile strength equal to the pipe body.
  • Extended Coupling Bevel boosts connection tensile performance and improves installation in horizontal wells.
