Weatherford achieved a new world record by landing a 1,180-ton (2,360,700-lb) casing string at a total depth of 26,805 ft (8,170 m). The job was performed on a deepwater rig in the Gulf of Mexico this fall.

The operator of a deepwater rig in the Green Canyon required installation of a heavy, 14-in., 112.6 lb/ft casing string. The total weight of the casing and landing string needed to reach total depth was 1,180 tons.

The operator contracted with Weatherford to install the landing-string slips 1250 ("LSS 1250"), which acts as a spider to safely and efficiently grip tubulars and has a maximum load capacity of 1,250 tons (2,500,000 lb).
