In deviated and cork-screwed wells, it’s difficult to get the torque from surface turns down to the anchor, especially in deeper wells. The Slimline® QuickSet™ TAC, however, only requires 1-to-3 turns to fully set versus 6 to 8, thereby reducing the required torque that builds up in the tubing string.
