Every oil and gas well requires a wellhead, which is installed at the onset of the drilling process and which remains with the well through its entire productive life. The Cactus SafeDrill™ wellhead systems employ technology traditionally associated with deepwater applications, which allows technicians to land and secure casing strings safely from the rig floor without the need to descend into the well cellar. “.
