The new plant will be producing hydraulic packers, multistage frac systems, multiple completion systems, hydraulic liner hangers and packers for different purposes. They will conduct torque tests, pressure tests, examine and check the operation of the produced equipment.
The new facility will enable the company to adapt to the needs of Russian market quickly and minimize the time it takes to implement a certain idea while reducing the delivery time.
