Casing Running Tools

Casing  Running Tools

Did you know that DrawWorks’ casing running tools provide a mechanical, safe and cost-effective way to expedite the production of your projects? DrawWorks currently manufactures mechanical casing running tools for both onshore and offshore drilling rigs. Open since 1998; we are proud to credit our rapid growth in the oil and gas industry primarily to providing innovative products to our clients. Moreover, we are confident of how our latest mechanical casing running tools can positively affect your business productivity, safety goals, and overall bottom line. Our team of experts strives to design and manufacture products that are strong and overall safe for our clients and their teams. All in all, we strive to create products to make your business successful.

In the Beginning

Typically, the conventional drilling process includes certain aspects that are expensive, obsolete, and worse, highly dangerous for workers. For example, most companies used hydraulic casing running tools which still requires numerous team members who are vulnerable to the unpredictable state of their work area. In addition to this, the actual work process is time-consuming and obsolete.  For instance, the overall process involves drilling, tripping it out of the hole, and then casing. The DrawWork’s mechanical casing running tools are used to get casing to bottom in difficult holes that require rotation, reciprocation, and circulation. This process is a critical benefit to today’s challenging well designs.

The Tool

The industry is desperately needing low maintenance tools with fewer parts that can be easily maintained between multiple projects. DrawWorks designed and patented a compensator lock mechanism, that does not need a top drive set down force to set the slips, with an actuator head for sizes 4-1/2’ to 20’ casing. The compensator lock mechanism comes with several benefits. For example, our casing running tools provide a threaded make-up without further slack off with an incredible slip grip-range. This broad range of casing weights features the internal grip and a higher load rating as an additional benefit. As a result, there are no accidental misfires. In addition to its favorable specs, our casing running tool is remote controlled, requires one operator, and can potentially save up to three days on a project depending on the site area.

The Benefits of DrawWork’s Casing Running Tools

The Casing While Drilling process brings many benefits to drilling operations, especially on wells experiencing problems with lost circulation and wellbore instability. This process uses a standard casing string when drilling. As a result, the process of drilling and casing the well are simultaneously executed. This feature eliminates casing runs and isolates formations while drilling. In addition to convenience, safety and certification requirements with casing running tools are also crucial at DrawWorks. Our mechanical casing running tools are within the specification requirements of the industry. The tools also create a safer work environment for your workers. For example, our casing running tools can perform casing while drilling along low-pressure productive sandstones. As a result, the possibility of drilling variable pressure zones with fluid invasion which reduces possible skin damage. Your casing crew will thank you for their gift of the DrawWorks casing running tool.

We’re Not Just Casing Running Tools

DrawWorks is continuously developing new products to increased productivity in the field. In addition to the casing running tools, we are rolling out our latest Side Entry Swivel. This tool will revolutionize the industry by eliminating environmental, production, and financial issues. For example, it is used to pump in cement through the casing running tool to improve the well cement job which eliminates the requirement of a cement head. Ultimately, the goal of this tool is to increase the load rating without the need for special equipment for routine maintenance. As you can see, we strive to do what innovators do best: make a significant difference in the industry.

About the Company
