Double industry award-winnng Downhole Products has launched a  new addition to its suite of products at Offshore Europe  in Aberdeen.

During a visit by Aberdeenshire Provost Hamish Vernal to Downhole’s exhibition stand the company unveiled its new advanced casing drilling centraliser – CaseRunner™.

CaseRunner™ was originally developed by Downhole Products’ family team Ian, Andy and Nathan Kirk for the Norwegian market. And due to its successful application, it is now ready to be marketed globally. 

The system comprises a torque-reducing centraliser and high holding force stop-collar designed specifically for the casing drilling/liner drilling market.  It uses the latest technology and materials to improve on existing solutions by maximising centralisation and minimising torque, vibration and ECD when casing drilling.

Mark Dundee, Downhole Products Vice-President, explained: “We are delighted that the Provost of Aberdeenshire was able to visit our stand to learn about this exciting new development which combines cost efficiency with ease of installation.”

Aberdeenshire-based Downhole Products has been awarded two Queen’s Awards – the UK’s highest accolade for international business success.
