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.

Telemast and LoadSafe are registered trademarks of Schramm.

    I am a plant design supervisor at Houston offshore engr.

    at the present i am looking at alternative drilling rigs that have a reduced footprint for offshore floating and stationary platforms. any brochures on your drilling rigs would be helpful. No client for this scenario at the moment but it has possibility’s.
    any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks
