Resources
Project management
Project management capabilities have enabled Dril-quip to better
manage the design, manufacture and delivery of Dril-quip products
on large integrated projects throughout the world.
The project management techniques utilize time-proven processes,
which are defined at the start of a project via a formal Project
Execution Plan (PEP). This formalized project management
system has proven invaluable for successful management of the
resources required to complete projects on time and to the
customers requirements.

Engineering
Dril-quips technological leadership in the industry is the result
of an ongoing commitment to a professional engineering staff
with in-depth experience in the design of drilling and production
equipment. This experience is supported by state-of-the-art
computer systems networked to expedite and optimize the process
of modelling, analyzing, modifying and testing each design. These
capabilities enable Dril-Quip to consistently provide new and
improved products to the oil and gas industry worldwide.

Manufacturing
Dril-quip products are manufactured from selected high-grade
forging material. Computer-controlled machine tools are used for
dimensional accuracy, precision machining and consistent quality.
Each product is inspected, assembled and tested prior to shipment.
Computer tracking systems are used to schedule and monitor each
customers order during the manufacturing process. This attention to
detail ensures product quality and on-time delivery.

Service
In order to ensure vital support to the offshore industry, Dril-quip
field service technicians are rigorously trained and tested in the
proper use, handling and repair of Dril-quip products. Only the most
qualified and knowledgeable personnel are employed by Dril-quip
for field service. These technicians are then posted at strategically-
located Dril-quip facilities throughout the world, readily available to
our customers on a 24-hour basis.

Training
The Dril-quip Training Department offers to the industry training
courses in the installation, operation and maintenance of offshore
drilling and production equipment. These courses utilize computer-
assisted training tools, models and actual equipment to enhance the
participants knowledge of offshore operations. Dril-quips Training
Department offers custom courses tailored toward specific projects
and customer requirements.

After lockdown, the tool is stroked down to the start

Once cementing is complete, the tool is rotated to the

Wear Sleeves and Wear Bushings
Wear Sleeves and Wear Bushings protect the bore sealing areas in the 18" wellhead for each phase of the drilling
operation. The BigBore II-H Wear Sleeves and Wear Bushings are installed when the bottom hole assembly is run,
eliminating the need for an extra trip. The Wear Sleeve is a bore protector that is carried to the wellhead on a bit
sub and is installed just above the bottom hole assembly. It is always retrieved when the bottom hole assembly
is retrieved. The Selectable Wear Bushing is a bore protector that is run on a bit sub with adapter sleeve above
the bottom hole assembly. The Selectable Wear
Bushing may be retrieved with the bottom hole
assembly or left in the wellhead.

The LS-15 System Incorporates
a Unique Hanger Slip Design
Dril-Quips proprietary one-piece C-Ring Hang-
Off Slip has been developed to greatly reduce
the amount of hoop stress placed on
the supporting casing by the liner load.
Dril-Quips circumferential slip design
distributes the liner load much more evenly
around the casing than conventional multi-
slip segment hanger systems. The C-Ring Slip
also incorporates a method of controlling the
friction between the slip and the hanger body.
One-Piece C-Ring Slip
This controlled friction design redirects
hoop load into axial load, drastically reducing the
collapsing load on the hanger body and burst pressure on the casing.
This combination of stress loading permits the LS-15 Liner Hanger
System to hang longer and much heavier liners than possible with
conventional technology.
