Vallourec S.A. is in the process of certifying SGS as a preferred inspection company for validating the quality of VAM® connections and drilling products.

Vallourec is a world leader in solutions for the energy and industrial sectors. Since 1965, it has been providing the oil and gas industry with VAM® connections, threaded premium connections that conform to the highest technical requirements and are simple, rugged and easy to use at the rig site.

SGS expects to receive certification at the end of 2015, after an audit at the SGS facility in Luanda, Angola. Once it is certified, SGS will be qualified to perform drilling equipment inspections for Vallourec’s Angola market. This includes major oil and gas operators, such as Total.

SGS will help Vallourec to meet customer expectations by confirming that products are fully repaired and operational, and that customers are paying the right price for maintenance.
