There’s a reason why the TorqStopper® is the preferred torque anchoring tool for onshore Australian CSG wells.

The TorqStopper® addresses the torque issue using a simple door mechanism that wedges the pump against the lower side of well bore casing providing maximum stability against vibration and the effects of pump torque.

A greater annular space around the tool for gas breakout enhances production, with our clients benefiting from significant savings through reductions in downtime, and lower operational and maintenance costs compared to similar tools.

As the manufacturer Sharpe® can also customise the TorqStopper® design to suit your specific requirements. Possible design options include:

  • Non-standard connection configurations and sizes
  • A centralised version already in development
  • Incorporating a tag system
  • Gauge cable recess slot

With the TorqStopper® available in a wide range casing/tubing size and configurations, Sharpe® will have you drilling to greater depths, more efficiently and safely!
