Casing and Rod Shoes

Casing & Rod Shoes

Pilot Casing shoes, like the reaming shells, are recognized as a benchmark in the industry. The importance of the casing shoe is often overlooked, but as it lies at the very start of a drilling job, its reliability is of prime importance. Pilot shoes are designed to be robust to withstand the rigours of advancing the casing through overburden and into bedrock: as such they are reinforced with carbide on both the inside and outside gauges - a feature not shared by every competitor.
