Running doubles from the casing process

Dockside handling 

DRILCO provides dockside casing bucking services at its C-Port II facility in Port Fourchon, Louisiana, USA, which enables shipping in double lengths and eliminates costly rig time spent making up connections. Makeup and breakout services are available 24/7/365, saving on permit loads from Houston, Texas, and Broussard, Louisiana. 

When casing singles are delivered to the facility, each one is individually logged and made up into doubles. The doubles are loaded directly from the makeup area onto work boats for delivery to the wellsite, reducing the number of lifts from the boat to the rig. 

Automatic torque control system 

DRILCO bucking systems can generate torque in excess of 100,000 lbf. ft for breakout. During the makeup process, the Tru-Torque system ensures accurate torque values, which are digitally recorded for traceability. In addition, cleaning, laser tally, full-length drift, and inspection of the thread couplings can be conducted.
