System for automated pipe makeup, connection evaluation leads to consistency, efficiency

When connections are made up manually, the results can be inconsistent. Last month, Weatherford released the AutoTong system to eliminate these inconsistencies and remove human inefficiencies from the connection makeup process. In this video from 10 October at the 2017 SPE Annual Technical Conference and Exhibition in San Antonio, Texas, Scott McIntire, AutoTong Product Champion, explains how the system delivers consistent and precise connections. He also describes how the system provides real-time support to help the driller detect and mitigate connection anomalies.
