Harsh environments and demanding deepwater applications require proven and reliable connectors to withstand extreme conditions and loads. Full pipe body strength, robust sealability, and excellent fatigue performance are essential.
For nearly two decades, the Viper™ weld-on connector from NOV's XL Systems has delivered proven performance and ensured long-term reliability in deepwater and harsh environments worldwide, particularly in the North Sea and offshore West Africa.
XL Systems, part of the NOV Completion & Production Solutions segment, embarked on an unprecedented full-scale physical testing program in Waller, Texas, to verify the Viper connector's strength ratings, define gas and liquid sealability envelopes, and demonstrate connector fatigue performance. As a result, Viper is the most tested large outside diameter connector on the market.
