(Image source: Halliburton)Sperry Drilling, a Halliburton business, has released JetPulse telemetry service, aiming to provide high-data rate transmission of drilling and formation evaluation measurements in oil and gas industry

According to Halliburton, the new telemetry system aims to help operators in making faster decisions to optimise well placement and improve well control while increasing drilling efficiency.

“The JetPulse service transmits downhole data consistently over wide depth ranges and complex well trajectories with physical data rates up to 18 bits-per-second. It provides the highest lost circulation material (LCM) tolerance of any high-speed telemetry system, helping the operator pump the required LCM concentration to cure mud losses without changing or plugging the bottom hole assembly,” said the company while reporting to the press.

The system also focuses on reducing flat time on the drilling curve and optimising reservoir contact by combining new telemetry technology with measurement/logging-while-drilling (M/LWD) services, thus allowing operators to make effective decisions to drill long sections in a single run.

“In environments requiring large data sets such as deep water and mature fields, operators rely on the accuracy and speed of downhole data to make informed decisions about their wells and expect single-run sections,” said Lamar Duhon, vice-president of Sperry Drilling.

“JetPulse is the next evolution of high-speed telemetry systems that enable accurate well placement and reduced well time to maximize customers' asset value,” he added.

The service also includes JetPack 3D downhole data management to give effective data rates of more than 140 bits-per-second, enabling the operators to get right data while drilling for enhanced decision-making.

JetPulse aims to help the operator in anticipating potential challenges in drilling activities and react to the dynamic drilling environment before any non-productive time could occur.

“The operator reached the production zone within budget and without fracturing the well or allowing the entry of unwanted formation fluid,” said the company.
