Downhole Extended-Reach Tool for Improving Drilling Performance

Efficiency, Realized — With the recent increase in unconventional shale drilling, many challenges follow as these wells typically include extended reach lateral sections. These challenges include, but are not limited to: low ROP, stick-slip, and poor WOB transfer along the drill string.

 

Reliability, Accomplished — The ArcoPulse utilizes a multi-lobe power section configuration and valve assembly to produce mixed mode oscillations, which act upon the drill-string downhole to reduce torque and drag. The valve assembly converts the energy available from the pumped fluid into a series of pressure pulses. These pulses activate the shock tool, which in turn creates axial motion that breaks static friction.

Benefits Include:

  • Proprietary elastomer is compatible with OBM and WBM
  • Proprietary design reduces wear on critical components by 50% or more
  • Increased ROP and improved weight transfer to bit
  • Designed to operate over wide flow rate range
  • Produces mixed mode oscillations, which help avoid resonance upon drill string
  • Does not interfere with MWD signals and/or other drill string components
  • Shock Tool excites vibrations
