Stamp of Approval

API certifications are an imperative to provide value added services to the oil and gas industry.

The American Petroleum Institute (API) has been at the forefront of creating standards of excellence for the oil and gas industry. The institute is also responsible for creating the certifications that are provided to oil and gas drilling companies in America.

The main purpose of these certifications is to ensure the safety of the workers, the reliability of the equipment, and environment protection. One of the most important certifications is the API 5CT. This certification highlights the specifications for the casing and tubing hanger components on wellhead equipment. The certification is extremely expensive to obtain as there are strict rules, and a thorough evaluation process is followed before a company is awarded.

Integrated Equipment, one of the leading oil and gas manufacturing equipment companies in America has been awarded many certifications by the API thanks its emphasis on complete excellence in their equipment design, manufacturing and shipping process.

Integrated Equipment is a major distributor of API 5CT and 5L couplings. We stock and distribute API 5CT Tubing and Casing Couplings in various sizes worldwide.
