OTC ’14: Schramm introduces shale drilling rig
HOUSTON -- Schramm Inc. is to introduce the T250XD -- the latest addition to Schramm’s Telemast line of trailer-mounted drilling rigs specifically designed for shale -- at the Offshore Technology Conference in Houston.
The T250XD builds upon the success of Schramm’s Telemast line designed for deeper drilling applications, including increased top drive travel, added BOP clearance, and an operator’s control room as well as the ability to interface with remote operating centers around the globe via satellite or the internet.
The T250XD provides 250,000 lbs (113,398 kg) hook load using Schramm’s Telemast technology and is equipped with Schramm’s LoadSafe XD fully-automated, hands-free pipe handling system.
“After listening to our customers, we designed the T250XD to help operators cut costs by utilizing a smaller, more mobile and cost-effective rig for top-hole drilling, decreasing the time and money otherwise spent on larger, much more expensive rigs designed for deeper and directional drilling,” said Schramm’s CEO Ed Breiner.
