VibraFlow™

April 17, 2013 | by Admin

Fluid-powered, high-intensity well stimulation tool. The VibraFlow™ turbo-acoustic source converts hydraulic power into a powerful high frequency acoustic signal. This powerful source mobilizes fines in the formation near the wellbore and increases acid and chemical reaction rates in the formation near the wellbore. The primary application has been heavy oil well screen cleaning.

NitroBlast™

April 17, 2013 | by Admin

High-Intensity Gas-Powered Acoustic Well Stimulation Tool. The NitroBlast™ tool creates high-power (up to 75 kW) sound at 2-20 kHz. Large diameter acoustic reflectors focus the sound on the formation. The tool is gas-driven to keep the well underbalanced during treatment.

Acid Blasting

April 17, 2013 | by Admin

The JetRotor™ is acid capable and is commonly used as part of an acidizing stimulation. In this application a stimulation head is run to blast the wellbore while squeezing acid into the well. The tool accommodates high flow rates and pressures for acid squeeze stimulations. The acid jets remove drilling damage and near surface damage from carbonate wellbores to ensure uniform stimulation. The high pressure jets remove clay and other contaminants that can restrict acid tunneling into the formation. These tools are run routinely to acidize carbonate wells in the Sultanate of Oman.

Cement Milling

In this remedial job the customer needed to remove cement from 12525 to 13590 feet of 3-1/2” casing.  A motor and 2-7/8-inch mill were used to drill out the cement leaving a sheath of cement.  A 2-1/8” JetRotor™ was run with XL jets to remove the remaining cement.  The tool was run over the 1000 foot interval three times with heavy returns of cement particles at surface.  300 feet of cement debris remained in the bottom of the well after the last pass indicating  complete cleanup.   The entire job was completed in 11 hours.

Milling Head

Hydraulic energy is focused forward. The core region of the jets provides 100% coverage of the front of the tool to mill through bridged material. – Removes soft mineral scale, barite sag, paraffin, hard-packed sand and other well obstructions, A high-pressure (HP) milling tool is available for hard scales.

Remove drilling damage from openhole completions, Clean screens and perforations, Acid blast for uniform acid delivery during acid squeeze and Multistage foam diversion acid squeeze.

Water Bypass Sub (WBS™)

April 17, 2013 | by Admin

This simple tool incorporates two bypass ports for applications where extra flow is required but gas will not be run. Software provided with this tool allows the user to size the bypass ports for the desired excess flow above the motor and to evaluate how the sub will affect motor performance while milling and off-bottom.

Well Planning Software

April 17, 2013 | by Admin

A proprietary analysis program supplied with the MGS™ tool allows the operator to plan the job and select the appropriate gas port size. A proprietary analysis program supplied with the MGS™ tool allows the operator to plan the job and select the appropriate gas port size. All pertinent parameters of the job requirements are entered, and the program calculates the port size and operational ranges including cuttings transport in the vertical and horizontal sections of the well.

South Texas Cleanout of 2-7/8” Casing with 1-1/14” Coiled Tubing

April 17, 2013 | by Admin

This job involved the cleanout of a 9020-foot deep well with initial wellhead pressure of 50 psi. This job involved the cleanout of a 9020-foot deep well with initial wellhead pressure of 50 psi. A 1-11/16-inch MGS and PDM motor were run with a 2-1/8-inch bladed junk mill. Fluid was pumped at 1 bpm with 600 scfm of nitrogen plus periodic sweeps of fluid and foam. The total job time was 9 hours. This typical job illustrates the ability to run a PDM motor at its design flow rate while adding nitrogen at a rate sufficient to maintain circulation.

Gas Separator/ HydroPull Millout

April 17, 2013 | by Admin

This well involved milling 8 composite bridge plugs from 5-1/2 inch casing. This well involved milling 8 composite bridge plugs from 5-1/2 inch casing. The BHA consisted of a 2-7/8 MGS™, HydroPull PDM motor and tricone bit. 200 scfm water was pumped in addition to the 2.5 bpm water to maintain circulation on this low-pressure well. The job was completed on 2-inch coil in one day. This service is now routine in this area.
