POWERFUL HOOKLOAD

Our new ultra-heavy tele-doubles have the largest hookloads in the tele-double market.  At 223,400 daN, our hookload provides maximum capacity for long lateral lengths.

VERSATILE & COMPACT FOOTPRINT

Our new ultra-heavy tele-doubles are fabricated with a versatile, compact foot print designed for quick rig up times.  Our tele-doubles can be configured to adjust to constrained leases and existing infrastructure.

INTEGRATED TOP DRIVE (TESCO 250 HXI)

Our top drives are engineered into the mast with rails and fully integrated (No Torque Tubes),ensuring efficient and safe rig up, with maximum torque translation downhole (maximum torque 24,000 ft.lbs, maximum RPM 200).

CIRCULATION SYSTEM & PUMP DESIGN

Our newest ultra-heavy tele-doubles (under construction) will be configured with a 7,500 psi circulating system and coupled with twin 1,600 hp pumps. Our current ultra-heavy tele-doubles are configured with a 5,000 psi rated circulating system and couple with a twin 1,300 hp pumps setup that can meet volume expectations at pressures in excess of the circulating system rating.

SIGNIFICANT RACKING CAPACITY

Our new ultra-heavy tele-doubles have significant racking capacity nearing 6,000m of 4-1/2” CDS40 drill pipe (5-1/4” Tool Joint), reducing pipe handling time.
