The Mechanical Thruster keeps the bit engaged with formation at all times, especially during transition zones. It balances pump open force and WOB, maximizing weight transfer and increasing ROP.
A Delaware Basin operator was seeking to increase bit and BHA life in their intermediate sections to be able to drill longer and faster.
The MT6 Dual Acting Mechanical Thruster was introduced to the BHA. It improved drilling consistency and allowed ROP and footage drilled increase.
