National Oilwell Varco (NOV) celebrated the shipment of the 1,000th TDS-11 top drive on 20 May at the company’s Orange, Calif., manufacturing facility. Pete Miller, NOV chairman, president and CEO, presented an award to the facility’s director of operations, Owen Unruh, in recognition of the manufacturing landmark.

A ceremony was held a few weeks later in El Reno, Okla., when Nomac Drilling received the 1,000th TDS-11 top drive, and Mr Miller presented an award to Nomac president Sam McCaskill in acknowledgement of the milestone.

Since NOV introduced land rig top drives to the market in 1990, the technology has proven itself invaluable, especially in the prolific North American shale plays.
