TRC Core Services

Field Technician Services

Handling damage and improper connection make-up are detrimental to sucker rod  performance and are common causes of premature rod failure. TRC addresses this problem by  providing assistance and direction to well service crews to ensure proper procedures are  adhered to in every aspect of rod string installation.

TRC employs field technicians who travel to the well site and provide guidance and assistance  to the customer during removal and installation of rod strings. Our field techs’ knowledge of  sucker rod care & handling techniques and connection make-up methods provides the  customer with a valuable resource to ensure proper handling, installation, and connection of  the rod string, preventing mechanical damage and improper make-up and thereby preventing  premature failures and extending the life of the rod string. TRC field techs have also performed  visual inspection of rods and couplings being removed from the well during field tech jobs, reporting on conditions such as wear, corrosion, mechanical damage, etc. and where in the  string any such conditions were encountered. This provides useful information to the customer  that they can use to assess their chemical treatment program, well operating conditions,  installation procedures, etc. TRC also offers a field evaluation service utilizing a 128-point  computerized checklist covering every aspect of sucker rod field operations. This checklist is  interfaced with a numerical rating system designed to score the rig crew and field personnel  according to API care and handling practice. Field tech services add value to the new rod  purchase by reducing failure frequency.

TRC field technicians are thoroughly trained in sucker rod care & handling, and proper  connection make-up methods. This includes proper loading, unloading, racking, tailing, thread  protector removal, thread lubricant application, displacement card selection and use, visual  inspection of rods and couplings, and proper use of elevators, tongs, and rod wrenches. Trained experts are available for steel or fiberglass installations. The extra personnel on site  reduces rig time while providing high quality rod string installation.

What is Remanufacturing?

For wells using TRC’s sucker rods, our Shear Tools should be run one or two rods above your pump to enable easy and efficient retrieval of your rods. The TRC Shear tools are made to separate at predetermined tensile loads, allowing the rods to be easily retrieved. The remaining rods and pump can be subsequently pulled from the well, ensuring the integrity of the rod string.
