TerraVici Commercializes Real Time Communication Using Tensor Based MWD Systems
Date: December 2012
TerraVici has begun drilling wells using positive mud pulse technology to send up RSS Health, Drilling Dynamics and Downlink Confirmation in real time. Real time communications via mud pulse allows for drilling parameter optimization and dramatic increases in drilling accuracy in areas where there is significant formation push. Integration to with the industry standard Tensor-based MWD system augments the existing capability to interface with the Applied Physics EM MWD system which has been used in existing EM friendly geology. With the inclusion of positive mud pulse telemetry the TerraVici RSS can be operated in nearly any well using the operators preferred telemetry method.
