Abandonments

Prostar’s top drive, with both power swivel and inverted slips, has saved clients up to 40% on estimated job AFE’s, significantly reducing drill time and the involvement of third party services.

Case Study 1: Abandonments

The Imperial Abandonment Project in Cold Lake was under AFE and ahead of schedule because of the quick drilling times with Prostar’s top drive. With the removal of the conventional power swivel, connection times are done in minutes without the need of training, inspection, hoses and static lines. The swivel has also reduced the long, tedious times of installing, running or pulling tubulars.
