Reduce Damages & Increase Performance. 
Utilizing a 24" stroke assembly to effectively balance weight on bit against differential pressure (pump open force), the Mechanical Thruster is designed to minimize shock and vibration while increasing overall system efficiency, reducing your well times and associated cost.

What can you expect when running a Mechanical Thruster?

Consistent drilling parameters
Reduced shock and vibration
Longer BHA runs
Reduced section times

The main benefit – and the reason why we picked up the thruster – was due to some severe vibrations at around 4,500-5,000’ on the first two runs. In that zone, thruster drilled much better, higher ROP, no vibrations, and eliminated a trip – about 12 hours of savings and one bit rental.

How the Mechanical Thruster Works

The Mechanical Thruster provides a consistent force to the bit by balancing hydraulics (differential pressure) and mechanics (weight on bit). This balance provides smooth energy transfer to the bit—even in erratic situations.

Our Process

We don’t just sell tools – we partner with you to increase effectiveness. We analyze 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.

Meet the New Generation of Mechanical Thruster

In order to facilitate the ever-evolving tortuous wellbore geometry and growing lateral lengths, the MT3X has been developed to significantly increase downhole reliability. As operators continue to push the limits in extreme conditions, Cougar’s Mechanical Thruster aims to reduce risks.
