Schramm Inc. will unveil its latest land-based hydraulic drilling rig on May 5 at the Offshore Technology Conference in Houston. The T250XD is the company’s the latest addition to its Telemast line of trailer-mounted drilling rigs specifically designed for shale operations.
“We are excited to introduce the T250XD and expand our product offerings customized to meet the latest trends in unconventional shale drilling,” said Schramm’s CEO Ed Breiner. “After listening to our customers, we designed the T250XD to help operators cut costs by utilizing a smaller, more mobile and cost-effective rig for top-hole drilling, decreasing the time and money otherwise spent on larger, much more expensive rigs designed for deeper and directional drilling.”
The T250XD builds upon the success of Schramm’s Telemast line designed for deeper drilling applications, including increased top drive travel, added clearance and an operator’s control room, as well as the ability to interface with remote operating centers around the globe via satellite or the internet. The T250XD provides 250,000 lbs hook load using Schramm’s patented Telemast technology and is equipped with Schramm’s LoadSafe XD fully-automated, hands-free pipe handling system. These and other technologies pioneered by Schramm are helping operators not only address many shale expansion concerns, including improving worker safety and lessening road wear, but also lower operating costs and increase profits.
The T250XD will be on display at OCT, May 5-8, outside the main entrance of the Reliant Center in Houston at Booth 171.
