EDMONTON, Feb. 23 /CNW/ - ESTec Systems Corp. (TSXV: ESE) through its
wholly owned subsidiary, Allan R. Nelson Engineering (1997) Inc. (ARN),
recently travelled to Texas to inspect and certify its exclusively
designed drill pipe lifting arm assembly.
The pipe lifting arm assembly is compatible with most masts and is
attached directly. It is capable of handling various lengths, weights
and diameters of drill pipe and can be used in either manual or
automated mode. The pipe is rolled into place on the arm where it is
secured. The arm then raises the pipe joint to a position where it can
be positioned relative to the mast. The pipe is brought into the mast
in-line with the top drive and lower rod connection. Using the arm, the
lower tool joint of the pipe is stabbed into the upper joint of the
downhole string. The top head is lowered and rotated to make the upper
connection. With the upper connection made, the arm is released and
returned to its original loading position. The lower connection is then
made using the top drive. The process is reversed to trip out of the
ARN's engineered systems are recognized and widely accepted throughout
the drilling industry. ARN will send its skilled staff wherever and
whenever called upon to service their clientele and maintain the high
reputation it has earned.
