HPHT Drilling Tools Pty. Ltd. introduces a down-hole drilling tool that produces a true axial vibration without a lateral vibration component. “The Centrefire” improves directional drilling performance in motor steerable applications, through applying controlled axial vibration to the BHA. This versatile tool can be used at the drill bit to add phantom weight to insure it remains in contact with the formation at all times. The phantom weight created then reduces the need of stacking further weight through collars and heavy wall drill pipe.
“The Centrefire” provides a true axial vibration that has proven:
- Reduced pressure drop
- Extended vibe signal propagation
- Reduced failure of complimentary tools such as MWD’s
- Improved ROP in tortuous lateral drilling programs
- Lower overall drilling costs
The Centrefire tool is available in 4.75” and 6.5” for drilling applications and a 2-7/8” size is available for the coil tubing market. Other sizes can made available upon request.
