Manufacturing of Liebherr Heavy Lift Crane 150000-3000 for Alfa Lift reaches key milestone

PDC Energy installs 22,248 feet of VAtitan®-TC in Ferguson well in Denver-Julesburg Basin – the connection with the highest torque rating in the industry
voestalpine Tubulars’ newest addition to the company’s family of premium connections is VAtitan®-TC, a wedge type connection with the highest torque rating in the industry. PDC Energy successfully installed 22,248 feet of 5.5-inch x 20.00 ppf VA-EP-P110 VAtitan®-TC in the Ferguson 23G-202 well located in the Wattenberg Field in the Denver-Julesburg Basin. Extending out 15,640 feet (3 Miles) from the KOP, this well has the longest lateral PDC Energy has drilled to-date. Due to the long lateral length, a connection able to withstand extreme torque to break static friction was required in the event rotation of casing to bottom was needed. With the VAtitan®-TC’s deep stabbing, low-turn design, the installation took place in just under 20 hours, with zero breakouts or rejects occurring during the installation. A second well is currently being drilled by PDC Energy that will consume another 22,163 feet of voestalpine Tubulars production casing threaded with VAtitan®-TC connections.
