Shoes

Pilot’s casing and rod shoes, like our shells, are recognized as a benchmark in the industry. The importance of shoes is often overlooked, but as they lie at the very start of a drilling job, their reliability is of prime importance. We make each shoe with the same amount of attention to detail, from the casing to the underreaming bit. Shoes are designed to be robust to withstand the rigours of advancing the drill string through overburden and into bedrock; as such they are reinforced with carbide and thermally stable diamonds on both the inside and outside gauges—a feature not shared by every competitor.
