Julio Quintana, president and CEO for Tesco, speaks with Drilling Contractor associate editor Katherine Scott about the company’s newly launched HXI 150t top drive and Hydraulic Compact CASING DRIVE SYSTEM (HCCDS). The HXI 150t is a 700-hp top drive that generates 24,000 ft-lbs of continuous drilling torque, ideal for shallow, extended-reach horizontal wells and maximizing ROP on vertical wells. The HCCDS replaces conventional power tongs, traveling elevators and the stabbing board to allow for simultaneous circulation, rotation and reciprocation of the casing.
