The system comprises field-proven gyro and magnetic survey sensor modules combined in a single MWD tool. The gyro sensor is usually used until the well clears external magnetic interference sources. The gyro can be put to sleep, and the magnetic probe can complete the hole section without a trip.
The technology produces a tool capable of significant time savings. Subsequently, over typical wireline conveyed gyros and conventional MWD tools. Furthermore, gyroMWD eliminates the need to use wireline to acquire directional data while drilling. Meanwhile, removing unnecessary hazards and personnel from the rig.
In addition to the apparent multi-well platform top-hole scenario, recent projects have used the system for whipstock setting/window milling operations. As a result, the tool can remain in-hole for the milling operation.
Our gyroMWD can be connected to Scientific Drilling’s Falcon MP and Falcon EM systems.
