Cementing & Casing Accessories

Cement Swivel

Nabors offers casing and tubular running services for both onshore and offshore applications. Additionally, cementing and casing products and accessories can increase value to casing running and cementing operations by improving hole conditioning, pipe movement, centralization, fluid velocity, and operational transition time.

Cementing and casing accessories include hydroform centralizers, Multi-Lobe Torque™ (MLT®) rings, reaming shoes, and cementing solutions.

Hydroform centralizers 

Nabors offers a proven alternative to conventional centralizers in challenging hole sections where pipe rotation may be required to reach total depth and/or during cementing operations. Hydroform centralizers feature a robust, patented design and attachment method. The unique blade design enhances circulation, hole cleaning and cementing. Nabors offers optional tungsten carbide hard-facing on blades for even more resilience when drilling in abrasive formations. Rotating and non-rotating centralizers are available.

Multi-Lobe Torque™ rings

MLT® rings provide a positive make-up shoulder when installed in standard API connections. Nabors MLT® rings increase torque capacity, allowing the use of API casing and tubing connections in deviated wellbores which may have high torque requirements and prevent couplings and pins from erosion, sand, and abrasive flow. In fact, MLT® rings can increase torque capabilities up to three times in API connections.

MLT® rings also improve the longevity of a well’s life by smoothing the J section from turbulent flow and protecting couplings from erosion. Nabors MLT® rings are made of L80 material; however, they may be manufactured in P110 or Q125 materials upon request.

Tubular Cement Casing XTRM Blue

Reaming shoes

Nabors’ reaming shoes overcome challenging wellbore obstructions such as bridges, high local dog legs, cutting beds, ledges, sloughing formations, and deviated holes by smoothly and efficiently guiding the casing to total depth.

The latest model, XTRM, is designed with a unique guide nose to minimize the amount of material removed during drill out. Spiral blades help to condition the hole and provide centralization for cementing.

Tubular Cement Casing Running Shoe
Cementing solutions

Engineered to compliment the Casing Drive System™ (CDS™), the Cement Swivel provides an entry port for the cement between the CDS™ and the top drive. This combination of equipment allows almost immediate transition from casing running operations to cementing, and it also allows the casing to be rotated and reciprocated during the cementing process.


  • Casing rotation while cementing
  • Reduces NPT
  • Improves mud displacement
  • Reduces channeling
  • Prevents gas migration
  • Provides better zonal isolation


  • Smaller size takes up less derrick space
  • Side port allows instant transition to cementing after running casing
  • 2-½" bore allows easy flow of fluid and ball
  • Portable tee auto plug launching system (addition)
  • A 6-⅝" reg pin screws into the TesTork® or directly into the top drive, allowing rotation of the entire casing string during the cementing operation
  • A 2-½" bore enables easy flow of fluids through the swivel via the top drive when rotation is not applicable and via side port during dynamic cementation
  • Side port entry allows the flow of fluid while cementing and automatic ball launching using the ball launching assembly
  • A 6-⅝” reg box connection attaches to the CDS™, enabling casing running operations while the swivel is in place and allows for immediate transition to cementing after casing running
