Compatible with vibratory tools to assist with bit engagement
High shock and vibration, particularly in increasingly long laterals, can quickly drive up drilling costs. However, using aggressive bits to increase ROP and get quick performance gains can result in damages and associated trips for new bits and BHA components.
The Mechanical Thruster reduces shock and vibration to increase reliability in BHA components and bits. It provides a consistent force to the bit by balancing hydraulics (back pressure below tool) and mechanics (weight on bit). This balance provides smooth energy transfer to the bit – even in erratic situations.
As operators continue to push the limits in extreme conditions, Cougar’s Mechanical Thruster aims to reduce risks. We analyze the BHA, well profile and drilling performance requirements and discuss specific objectives with your drilling team. This ensures you get optimal performance from the Mechanical Thruster.
