TULSA, Okla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Catoosa Test Facility, www.ctfok.com, has recently successfully drilled an extended test well to 7,449’ using Oil Based Mud for a Major Company. This test was designed to validate advanced drilling technologies, before it is released to the public. Normally total depth is not the objective at Catoosa Test Facility, as CTF is able to test prototype tools of any type downhole, both in cased wells and open borehole.
In June of 2017 Catoosa Test Facility added a third testing rig to the test campus in Jennings, Oklahoma. Nabors Industries furnished one of its high-quality Cyber drilling units under a long term arrangement to CTF for research and development activities related to drilling operations, advanced wellbore placement technologies and other oilfield tool testing and verification services. This new rig is an all-electric A/C top drive intelligent triple rig that is upfitted with the latest technologies for testing purposes. It is a walking rig that sets on a 9 test well, fully concreted pad, and is destined to be the keystone of our testing campus.
Catoosa Test Facility is commercially available to technology focused oilfield companies for drilling test wells wherein new or existing drilling equipment, tools or techniques can be tested under various actual drilling conditions in a low-risk, cost-effective, confidential and independent environment. Catoosa Test Facility is 100% privately owned and operated for testing confidentiality.
