Halliburton introduces commander full bore cement head

hllibutonOil field service company Halliburton has unveiled the commander full bore cement head, a product that enables the rotation and reciprocation of 4 ½ - six inch production strings to help increase reliability and reduce risk during the well-cementing process

Advanced wireless functionality and faster rig-up time help increase efficiency and improve safety for land-based cement jobs, particularly in unconventional formations.

The commander full bore cement head can rotate pipe during a cement job to improve cement coverage, prevent channelling, reduce communication between frac stages and help maximise production.

Wireless capability allows for less cost-prohibitive equipment on site and helps eliminate the requirement for personnel to hoist, load, and manually deploy plugs on active rigs. The head prevents casing wiper plugs from being launched out of sequence and offers real-time verification that the plugs have launched successfully. This helps improve safety and efficiency while setting dependable cement barriers.

Halliburton stated that more than100 jobs had been executed to date with the commander full bore cement head, with average rig-up times as fast as 30 minutes and a reduction in time personnel spend in the red zone.

Jim Collins, vice-president of Cementing, said, “We are building on our legacy of 100 years in the oilfield cementing business with exciting and innovative new products. We’re bringing industry-leading products to cost-sensitive and challenging unconventional operations, while simultaneously reducing unwanted risk at the well site.”
