Drilling: Tough Business

Drilling into the Earth surface is a tough business. It requires a large amount of power to drill and extract valuable resources. Sturdy equipment used in drilling needs to withstand the elements and deliver consistent results. The success of a drill site relies on strong hydraulic cylinders that can deliver both power and performance while withstanding the elements.

Once a location is identified to drill, a wellbore is drilled. This is the actual hole that supports the well that oil, gas, and water will be extracted from. The goal is to find and extract the resources that so many of us rely on for daily life. Drilling takes place in a variety of environments, from the arctic, to offshore, to the hottest, dirtiest places on the Earth’s surface.

Hydraulic cylinders used in offshore drilling spend most of their life near and even deep in mineral filled saltwater that is very corrosive. Hydraulic cylinders used in land based drilling might be used in the cold artic, or in the driest of deserts and everything in between.
