The Evolution of Top
In 1981 the first top
drive was introduced; providing the drilling community with clear advantages to
traditional Kelly drilling, such as, increased safety, well control and performance.
20 years later, National
Oilwell Varco (NOV), the engineering pioneer behind the top drive revolution, introduced
the TDS 8.
Thanks to its
unmatched reliability and global service and support network, the TDS 8 is the
drilling industry’s most prolific 750 ton top drive on the market.
The TDS 8 Top Drive
has the “AC Advantage” with
its use of a 1150 hp AC drilling motor and is a multi-purpose tool ideal for
use on semi-submersibles and jack-up as well as large land applications.
