Lance Davis, CEO of Deep Casing Tools, said: “Several first runs of tools for new clients in Canada and New Zealand demonstrate Deep Casing Tools’ continued success across the globe. Similar operations have been performed in the North Sea and the United States where operators have already applied the technology in the Bakken, Niobrara, Permian Basin, Eagle Ford and Gulf of Mexico. Reducing the risks and costs associated with landing casing at depth is core to our business, and our products are increasingly solving such issues on an international scale. It's certainly an exciting time to be joining Deep Casing Tools”.
Deep Casing Tools now has inventory in key locations throughout the world. Growth plans include recruiting talented individuals for technical and operational roles worldwide. Earlier this year, additional funding of £2.1m from the Scottish Loan Fund was successfully secured.
