Enhance deployment in problematic formations.

Rubicon’s SlickSHOE is an eccentric aluminum nosed casing guide shoe that guides casing to TD when ledges or washouts may exist and when a cement nosed guide or float shoe is not considered robust enough. The shoe protects casing integrity, makes it possible to ream to planned TD and facilitates casing runs and cementing.

Making it better

The SlickSHOE reduces the risk of damage to the casing shoe.

Cements integrity. Improves bit performance and longevity. Includes fast drill out times. Increases probability of reaching planned TD.
