Compact Casing Drive System

Nabors recently acquired Tesco Corp. We are in the process of integrating and consolidating our web presence. Please use these pages to access historical rentals information. Learn more about Nabors rig equipment.

Similar to the full-sized Casing Drive System™, the Compact Casing Drive System™ (CCDS™) is a casing running tool that performs all of the same functions throughout casing operations.

The main difference between the CDS and its compact counterpart is that the CCDS is designed to allow automated make-up on smaller drilling rigs. At a load rating of 200 tons and easily adaptable to work with any top drive, this casing running tool is one of the most versatile on the market. Its small size allows the CCDS to be easily truck loaded and transported to and from location when necessary. Use the CCDS for an entire run, for making-up connections, as a fill-up tool, reaming casing or just on stand-by in case of stuck pipe.

Setting casing short of total depth due to hole obstructions
Stuck pipe when the casing string remains stationary too long
Well control situations due to hole surging or inadequate casing fill
Use of circulating swedges and risk of connection damage
Working pipe through tight spots, ledges or bridges by using power tongs to rotate the casing

Maximize Safety
Extending capabilities of the top drive system downhole, the CCDS also reduces risks associated with conventional casing running equipment and operation, such as:

Personnel working the stabber board
Power tongs, suspension lines or back-up lines in the derrick or on the rig floor
Elevated work platforms or scaffolding at the rig floor
Separate fill-up/circulating tool or line
Large traveling elevators
Additional equipment and personnel on the rig floor
