For onshore and offshore completion services, Superior Energy Services recently launched the Complete Automated Technology System to provide safer operations, better well performance and lower costs. Tim Bridges, vice president sales & business development for Superior Energy Services, speaks with Drilling Contractor associate editor Joanne Liou in an exclusive video about the technology, which received a 2013 OTC Spotlight on New Technology award. The system uses remote-operated or pre-programmed robotics to control various completion components, including a snubbing unit, blowout preventer, pumps, circulation tanks, top drive, closing systems and pipe-handling systems as part of one unit.
