Centek Inc.’s S2 centralizer sales in the US Rockies region topped a landmark $1 million dollars for the month of April 2014. The Centek S2 centralizer has been widely adopted for shale completions, which typically involve extended reach horizontal runs as long as 18,000-20,000 feet, where the strength, flexibility and low friction of the S2 units have ensured good casing centralization.
The Rockies region includes the oil-shale rich states of Colorado, New Mexico Wyoming, Utah, North Dakota, and Montana. Tough new drilling regulations implemented in the region and across the U.S. are designed to make drilling and hydraulic fracturing safer and to ensure well integrity. These regulations set new well standards in environmental safety for drilling, cementing, completing and production.
