Halliburton expands line of DrillDOC drilling optimization tools
HOUSTON -- Sperry Drilling, a Halliburton business line, has introduced two new sizes of its DrillDOC drilling optimization tools—4 3/4-inch and 9 1/2-inch collars.
The new DrillDOC collars provide the measurements necessary to understand downhole drilling dynamics. They deliver real-time measurement of torsion, weight, bending and vibration measurements. Combining multiple DrillDOC tools in a single string can provide full drillstring dynamics.
Directly measuring torsion, weight, bending and vibration identifies the actual drilling parameters that are being applied to the bottomhole assembly and the bit. These measurements give operators greater insight into the wellbore to reduce uncertainty, minimize unplanned events and optimize the drilling performance.
