Lower Casing Running Time & Cost

The AirLock casing buoyancy sub significantly reduces casing running time, cost, and risk – without intervention or interfering with casing and cementing ops.

The AirLock casing buoyancy sub contains a high-strength, dome-shaped pressure seal that is supported by a calibrated shear ring with breakaway tabs. The design allows the vertical casing section to be filled with fluid while the lateral section remains air-filled and buoyant. This reduces sliding friction up to 50% or more, while the weight of the vertical section adds force to push the casing to the toe.

Operation is simple and passive. The installation location can be calculated to provide the optimum balance of lateral buoyancy and vertical fluid weight. After the casing lands, increased surface pressure shears the tabs, shattering the glass dome into tiny fragments, leaving behind a completely unobstructed wellbore.

Over 12,000 AirLock systems have been installed with a 99.9%* success rate on the very first run.
