  • CARY, N.C. – LORD Corporation – a leader in motion and vibration control solutions for the oil and gas industry – is now certified to the American Petroleum Institute's (API) standard 16F testing for telescopic joint (TJ) packers.

    Testing was conducted to the second edition of API standard 16F, effective May 1, 2018, a harsher standard than the first edition in that the inner barrel must not be lubricated during testing. The TJ packers now experience more friction than in the first edition test regimen.

    “Receiving the API 16F certification is a testament to the demanding conditions our TJ packers can endure,” says Maggie Demicco, LORD Product Manager. “And with the parts in stock, it enables our customers to gain immediate access to these long-lasting packers.”

    The testing routine involves wear testing at 50,000 cycles with a short stroke at 25 psi bore pressure. Reciprocation is tested for 100 cycles with a longer stroke at multiple bore pressures. Hydrotest is completed both before and after testing to verify that the packers continue to seal at higher bore pressures.

    LORD wear-resistant TJ packers exceeded standards. When the 50,000-cycle wear test was complete, the packers were then weighed to measure elastomer mass loss. The LORD wear-resistant TJ packers lost less than 0.75 percent elastomer mass compared to a pass/fail criterion of no more than 10 percent mass loss. Throughout this process, testing was witnessed by third-party inspectors from DNV GL and American Bureau of Shipping (ABS). LORD received approval from DNV GL and approval from ABS is currently pending. 

     “Receiving the API-16F certification for our TJ packers highlights our commitment to bringing new elastomer technology to our customers and the industry,” says Jonathan Owens, Director, LORD Oil & Gas Business. “This is only one step as we continue to develop elastomeric solutions which exceed industry performance standards and bring value to our customers.”

    LORD stocks both inner wear packers and outer energizing packers for quick turnaround on orders. Data books accompany each packer and where applicable, seal kits are included with each order. The abrasion-resistant packers are compatible with risers from all major OEMs.

  • CARY, N.C. – LORD Corporation, a global diversified technology and manufacturing company, has been selected as a recipient of the 2018 Spotlight on New Technology® Award, an awards program via The Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) that showcases the latest and most advanced hardware and software technologies leading the oil and gas industry into the future. LORD is one of only 17 companies and technologies honored with this award this year.

    LORD won the award for its design, production, and qualification of the 10K Completion Workover Riser Flexible Joint – a high-pressure joint, designed to operate at nearly double the pressure of flexible joints in similar applications while accommodating the motion of the vessel up to a 10-degree cocking angle. Through this innovation, operations are enabled to be more safe, sustainable, and efficient.

    Produced in LORD’s Erie, Pa. facility, this innovative technology is for deepwater operators and contractors conducting completion, workover and intervention jobs. The flexible joint offers a dual-bearing design, where each bearing is comprised of multiple layers of elastomer bonded to spherical reinforcements.

    “The LORD flexible joint is compact, enabling lower cost high-pressure interventions on smaller intervention vessels,” said Jonathan Owens, Director, Oil & Gas, LORD Corporation. “We are proud of this unique and differentiating solution that extends the pressure capabilities of flexible joints beyond what is standard, or even available, in the field today. It offers a redundant sealing feature not present in single-bearing flexible joints or stress joints.”

    The 10K Completion Workover Riser Flexible Joint offers a 10,000 psi operating pressure with a 15,000 psi hydrotest and can be rated up to a temperature of 350 degrees Fahrenheit. LORD designed and delivered the flexible joint in only 23 weeks, with the first order shipped in September 2017 and installed in well intervention vessels in late 2017.
