Through its patented Anti Stick-slip Tool (AST), Tomax provides a stable, safe drilling environment, free from stick-slip vibrations produced in the process of cutting through problematic underground formations. The suppression of stick-slip vibrations will also release energy for faster rates of penetration (ROP). As a result, the use of AST will always add significant value where the drilling operation faces risk from stick-slip vibrations.
New, counterforce assisted XC-AST Reveal Hard Rock Potential with PDC Bits Objective The cost of hard rock drilling grows exponentially with depth. That is not […]
Drilling hard carbonates is often a costly affair with slow ROP and equipment damage. At the international IADC/SPE Drilling Conference in London 2015, Norwegian operator […]
Use of very aggressive PDC cutters, a RSS system with a mud motor and an AST produced a steady cut through hard limestone and repeatedly […]
Severe drilling vibrations in top-hole section created unacceptable noise and risk. An AST was implemented to solve the problem. Objectives Severe surface vibrations and noise […]
Objectives The primary objective was to maximise drilling efficiency in the 5 5/8” section through the hard abrasive Lower Fulmar Sandstone. A turbine BHA was […]
Some wells are drilled primarily to retrieve cores. This puts a lot of pressure on the drilling engineers to find methods that moves the recovery […]
The AST saved at least on day on each section drilled compared to previous wells having the same sea conditions. Objective The combination of 7 […]
