In the latest edition of Hart Energy’s E&P Magazine, Frank’s  AEGIS™ Tubular Protector, previously referred to as the Drill Pipe Torque Reducer or DPTR, was featured in the magazine’s 2020 Shale Technology Showcase. This special section “highlights the latest technologies for developing shale resources and looks at how companies will benefit from the application of these advanced tools on their operations.”

 

The feature details how the AEGIS™ Tubular Protector addresses the “challenges of long lateral environments and the dynamic forces of aggressive openhole operations” and offers a solution to high-torque challenges. During a field trial, the AEGIS™ Tubular Protector showed a substantial reduction in torque during operations for one operator who plans to utilize the tool again while drilling their next well.
