PULLED BUT UNDAMAGED UROS CENTRALIZERS

designed to fit each wellbore instead of relying on gauge hole design, and secure stop collar technology ensures there is no centralizer movement on run in or pull out. The UROS is available in sizes from 7.5/8 in. through to 20 inch with additional sizes being continuously developed as required.

Centek Group Centek Group opened a US manufacturing subsidiary in September 2012 based in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA. The 88,000 square feet plant is fully self-sufficient in all aspects of centralizer manufacture with its own heat treatment and laser cutting equipment. The workforce has now grown four times to 92 operatives producing around 35,000 centralizers a month. The factory manufactures the widely used Centek S2 bow-spring centralizer for the US, Canadian and Mexican markets. When choosing a centralizer careful consideration, including the use of modeling software, must be given to the flow by area, desired stand-off, well strength and geometry, the zonal isolation required, and the degree of centralizer flexibility needed to traverse known formations, as well as an evaluation of start and running forces. Centek uses its advanced simulation and modelling software to produce dynamic calculations which are used to design customised centralizers based on the characteristics of each well.
