NitroBlast™ and VibraFlow™ Tools

Detailed Description

These tools are the most powerful acoustic generators available for through-tubing well intervention.

High-frequency sound can mitigate drilling- or production-induced skin damage if the intensity is high enough and the well is underbalanced, so that fines loosened by the sound are flushed out of the formation.

High-intensity sound can also be used to enhance acid and chemical placement and reactivity near the wellbore.
