DualLink gives drillers the ability to differentiate in their market. Giving rig owners the option to add services into the high spec rig design and activities - which results in increased efficiencies for end-users such as service companies and operators.
DualLink delivers the ability to drill more consistently, with greater efficiency and wellbore performance; ultimately improving economic return.
Better placement: wellbore tortuosity and separation
Visibility of downhole drilling dynamic performance & hole cleaning
Stronger telemetry: mud/formation agnostic & less downhole pulser failures
Improved measurement quality
Enables automation efficiencies
Shorter, lower cost BHA with longer run duration
Remote operations: remove battery handling, tool setup and cost
Opportunities to develop new BHA tools and processes
Robust design proven on numerous US Land field trials
Field replaceable connectors / redundancy built-in via multi-wire copper braid
Consistent performance due to reduced downhole equipment failures
Benefits for land operations
Industry data indicates that the introduction of wired pipe technology will lead to:
7 - 15%
High data rate and power offers better visibility to optimize drilling performance whilst reducing unplanned trips due to well placement, hole problems or tool failures.
IMPROVEMENT IN OVERALL EFFICIENCIES
Finally hard wiring downhole tools to surface will enable further remote operations and automated closed loop drilling, resulting in more consistent well safety, delivery and top tier performance.
