Interpipe developed the Ukrainian Premium Joint (UPJ) for the construction of horizontal and directional oil and gas wells, exploiting under complex geological conditions.
This joint is highly hermetic and possesses high durability and resistance. UPJ specification and service performances are equal to similar constructions used in the global practice of oil and gas production.
UPJ was certificated for tubing in March 2006 and for casing in November 2006. Rig tests were held by the largest Russian company VINIGAZ Gazprom.
