in-plant COUPLING INSTALLATION
TRC recommends that you utilize our technicians to install couplings on your rods in our plants prior to transport to your location. This is a low-cost service, which will save you money while at the same time improving the rods’ performance. The service is performed in a controlled environment, ensuring a proper make-up.
Typically, a 300-joint rod string can be run in 1.5 hours less time if the couplings have been installed in our plant. At $300 per hour rig time, you will see a $450 savings per string. Plus, your rig hands will thank you. Keeping a happy rig crew always saves you money.
Since every rod will have a coupling on it, you will also eliminate the times when your boxes of couplings are short. How many times has this shut down the rig while the search is on for a replacement of the missing coupling? And, since your couplings will not be thrown or drug through the dirt and mud, the chances of galling the threads will be virtually eliminated.
It simply makes sense to use our low cost, coupling installation service. Contact TRC today to learn more about installing your couplings on your rods in our plants.
