Enteq Upstream a provider of systems and components for Measurement While Drilling (MWD) and directional drilling, has formed the Enteq Drilling division to integrate the technology and services of Extended Exploration Technology (XXT) and KM Services (KMS).

XXT provided MWD equipment for the directional and horizontal drilling markets such as downhole tools, surface gear and surface software. KMS manufactured and supplied MWD machined parts, spares and components for mud motors within the upstream oil and gas sector.

Based in Houston, Santa Clara, Calif., and Calgary, the new Enteq Drilling division offers entire MWD systems as well as other drilling products such as float valves, MWD parts, mud motor parts, sand screens, kit boxes and racks.

The Enteq Drilling division in Houston will manufacture high quality parts and components for the directional drilling and MWD markets while improving availability and immediate delivery. Enteq Drilling in California will enhance and improve the flagship XXT MWD product line. The division’s regional sales and support offices are based in north Houston and Calgary.

"The formation of the new division represents our continual push for quality and integration across our range of products and reflects the increasing levels of collaboration and cooperation between XXT and KMS, which were acquired by Enteq in 2012,” said Martin Perry, Enteq Upstream chief executive officer. “The growth potential for Enteq Drilling is vast, and we expect additional parallel divisions and product lines to evolve from this division in the future.”

The combination will allow the supply and rental offering of integrated, turnkey MWD systems while utilizing technology from both organizations. Superior customer support, availability of technology and flexibility of delivery are trademarks of Enteq Drilling and Enteq Upstream for both MWD systems and components.
