BlueRodTM
Premium Sucker Rod
Tenaris’s BlueRodTM premium sucker rods open up a new future
for oil pumping operations as they provide an excellent performance
in the field.

Tenaris presents its latest development, the BlueRodTM premium sucker rods with a remarkably
resistant connection designed for high loads. The connection improves the rod’s fatigue life and
provides an excellent performance in the field.

The total capacity of the sucker rod string depends entirely on the connection capacity.
Up to now, a third of conventional pumping failures were traceable to this part of the sucker
rod. The new BlueRodTM offers 100% connection efficiency and opens up a new future for oil
pumping operations.
