VAM® – Celebrating 50 years of pioneering and innovation!

VAM® – Celebrating 50 years of pioneering and innovation!

Houston, Texas - April 23, 2015

In 1965, Vallourec revolutionized connections by launching the first VAM product, a premium joint that would transform tubing and casing standards in the world of Oil & Gas. As the market progressed into increasingly challenging and extreme environments, VAM connections not only reached the highest technical requirements but also proved to be rugged and easy to use at the rig site, no matter what the complexity.

VAM® has delivered beyond expectations and has become one of the most acknowledged solutions in the industry!

For 50 years, VAM® premium connections have also connected people, projects and countries. Through every project, VAM teams have collaborated with operators to improve well design and well integrity. The expertise of our six R&D centers combined with the proximity of our VAM® Field Service experts, and the reliability of our VAM® licensee network worldwide, created a benchmark for safer operations and ultimate well performance for our customers.

To celebrate VAM® 50th anniversary with our customers, employees and partners around the world, we launched a dedicated interactive website: “Our VAM® stories” that will run throughout 2015. It is open to contributions, and visitors who played a part in the history of VAM® can share their experience and testimonials, a tweet or a picture. Discover the product family and services, and participate in our anniversary contests for a chance to win prizes all year-round!
