To find the best wellbore position, you need access to accurate measurements transmitted from downhole to the surface — including directional surveys, natural gamma ray, drilling dynamics, temperature, and annular pressure.

Our measurement-while-drilling (MWD) systems deliver this data in real time for precise wellbore placement, even under the most demanding conditions.

Get reliable measurements as you drill, so you can make better placements to reduce nonproductive time (NPT) and lower total cost of ownership (TCO). We offer fit-for-purpose solutions for environments ranging from deepwater to unconventional plays. Applications include geometric wellbore placement, reservoir navigation, and drilling optimization.

These platforms also act as a telemetry link and power source for all other real-time downhole services, including logging-while-drilling (LWD) and rotary steerable systems.

As drilling environments become deeper, hotter, harsher, and more complex, reliability is crucial. We offer rugged, customizable solutions for high-temperature (175°C [347°F]) and high-vibration applications. These solutions are also retrievable to minimize lost-in-hole (LIH) costs. Our comprehensive service offerings include 24/7 technical support, commissioning of MWD equipment or engineering, and training to deliver added value.

Our MWD services have numerous advantages, including:

  • Reliable wellbore measurements, no matter the condition
  • Reduced NPT and TCO
  • Customized solutions
  • Comprehensive service offerings
  • Higher utilization rates
