Drill String Opens New Shop in Ok.

Drill String recently opened a new location in Elk City, Okla., General Manager Milford Lay announced.

The 3.5 acre yard offers a full range of inspection services, including electromagnetic and wet and dry magnetic particle inspection; hardness and pressure testing; inside diameter (ID) and outside diameter (OD) cleaning; refacing; and hardbanding.

"Elk City is centrally located to ongoing shale activity including the Woodford Shale Formation," Lay said. "Our new Oklahoma location will help us better serve existing customers and allow us to offer additional inspection services in the region."

Future plans for the location include offering machine shop services. Jaret Rentrop will act as the site supervisor.
