MECHANICAL THRUSTER

Reduce Trips and Increase Reliability

 

High shock and vibration can quickly drive up drilling costs. However, using aggressive bits to increase ROP can result in irreparable damage to bits. This creates the need for multiple trips and increases nonproductive time.

Reduction in vibration

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 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.
