Shoulder Thread Verifier Systems, a div. of Global Systems inc., has developed a new process which will allow the operator to virtually see & verify in real time, the tool joint shoulder engagement and casing/tubing thread and seal engagement. The process verifies the torque being applied to the complete tool joint shoulder and any problematic thread damage. The system also provides the operator a virtual image, in real time, the thread and seal make-up in casing, tubing, connections identifying any problematic thread or seal engagements before going into the hole. STV Systems provides the operator, for future reference, a CD containing the final make-up of the string connections before leaving the job site. STV Systems can maintain a connection database for future connection review or in-depth analysis at the STV Systems lab.
