At the high frequency electric resistance welding, HF-ERW, the three types of welding phenomenon define the way to obtain a welded joint without oxides after the squeeze out. When welding phenomenon type 1 or 3 are predominant at the welding process, the retention of oxides at the welded joint is facilitated and the best quality occurs when type 2 is obtained. Among the welding parameters, the heat-input and the welding speed have great influence in what type of welding phenomenon is obtained at the welding, and, therefore, at the discontinuity rate. With the objective of evaluate how the heat-input and the welding speed influence the HF-ERW process it is proposed to combine these parameters during the production of 13 3/8” outside diameter, 0,380” wall thickness, API 5L standard, X56 steel grade, pipes. In order to analyze the results, a comparative study of the Charpy V-notch test at the welding line was done. The characterization of the base metal and welding was performed through the analysis of the chemical composition, tensile properties, hardness test, Charpy test and microestrutural evaluation. With the characterization analysis it was possible to certificate the accordance of the pipe produced with the API 5L X56 requirements and analyze the main aspects of the welded joint. By means of the results of the Charpy impact test at the weld line, it was possible to analyze the influence of the heat-input and welding speed at the HF-ERW process, in which it was verified that the increase of the welding speed improve the weld joint toughness. Through the analysis, it was also possible to correlate the results with the welding phenomenon
