Inside this episode:
- Andrew Richard discusses a brand new break-through technology called the Jointed Pipe Injector (JPI), that promises to revolutionize the well completion process
- The JPI enables 1-button tripping, replacing the 17 manual steps required by today’s process
- The JPI is about to be released as a product after over a year of testing testing by the majority of the super-majors
- The JPI also reduces a driller’s carbon footprint by requiring a substantially smaller motor to power the completion operation.
