Schramm has launched its T500XD Telemast 500,000 lb hoist capacity drill rig currently headed to the Marcellus and Utica shales. The rig has a full 360° walking portability for fast moves from hole to hole without the traditional limits of two axis pad mounted designs.
The T500XD also offers a full communication interface connectivity to third-party data acquisition providers that utilize the internet or dedicated satellite communications systems to remote operation centers in multiple locations.
Specifically designed for horizontal and directional drilling to a total depth of 15,000 ft or more, the Schramm T500XD can control weight on bit without relying on drill collars and gross string weight alone.
It offers 35,000 ft-lbs of top head torque, third-party directional steering interface and 80,000 lbs of hydraulic pulldown capacity.
This rig includes an integral LoadSafe XD system that can handle 24 in.-diameter Range III tubulars weighing up to 10,000 lbs. Drill pipe is racked in the horizontal position for easy loading and offloading, thereby improving operator safety.
