Transforming the drilling industry
Driving forward a step change in drilling performance, DualLink will transform the drilling industry. As the only wired drillpipe to leverage digital telemetry, power and greater reliability downhole, DualLink meets the needs of both land and offshore drilling.
DualLink re-defines the standard, enabling a step change in well construction to deliver predictable,
high-quality well construction.
By energizing the downhole BHA with data and power, DualLink’s benefits are three-fold:
More efficient drilling and less NPT
With high resolution downhole data and imagery enabling instant decision making.
Well placement quality improved
With high bandwidth logging and
drilling telemetry of 56 kb/s.
Enables drilling automation
Operates on an open platform; totally independent and can be integrated with any software or tools.
500W of power at depth
Removes the need for downhole power sources for the BHA: shorter tools with measurements closer to the bit, less moving parts and lower asset and operating costs.
Environment and safety improved
Removes batteries from the BHA
and the associated handling,
transportation and disposal.
Robust field replaceable connectors
Can be handled like an ordinary
drillpipe & easily integrates into
existing rig operations
Unique braided-cable design Provides >800 transmission channels to deliver greater surface contact and inbuilt redundancy.
Key selling points
Efficiency / environment
Improvement of 15%
Increase in total recovery by 20%*

Developed with a focus on reliability
Designed for full and easy integration into a rig, the DualLink network has been built with redundancy at its core and the total cost of ownership in mind.
DualLink is turning on the lights for downhole and bringing drilling out of the dark.
DualLink integrates easily into existing systems and can be handled in the same way as a regular drillpipe. Designed for the future, the technology enables shorter bottom hole assemblies (BHAs). The shorter BHA facilitates the design and use of lower cost tools and allows all measurements to be taken closer to the bit at much faster data rates.
DualLink is an efficient and robust engineered solution. Its future-proofed design results in a reduced risk of component failure.
The technology is also a more environmentally friendly option, as lithium batteries are no longer required, and faster drilling results in less rig emissions per well.
