Technologies to enhance Rig Direct®

  • Case Studies

    BTA chooses Rig Direct® in the Permian Basin

    BTA Oil Producers is an independent exploration and production company in the Permian Basin, drilling approximately 20 wells per year. BTA was using the traditional distribution model, but after learning about the range of services associated with Rig Direct®, decided to give us a try for its production casing needs.

  • Case Studies

    5 million feet of TenarisHydril Wedge 625® run in Vaca Muerta

    The recent increase in the exploitation of shale wells, with their associated challenges, made it necessary for oil & gas companies to use products specially designed for unconventional reservoirs. The TenarisHydril Wedge 625® connection proved an appropriate answer, being adopted by several operators in more than 300 wells, thanks to its semi-flush design with metal-to-metal seal and outstanding operational torque capacity.

  • Case Studies

    Maersk Oil chooses Dopeless® technology and Rig Direct®

    Maersk Oil ran its first trial strings with Dopeless® connections in 2009, and in 2015 requested the full range of Rig Direct® services. After experiencing the benefits of Dopeless®, Maersk Oil applied this technology to all of its projects in the North Sea, including the UK “Culzean” HP/HT field development.
