Top Mount Mud Pulse
The Native Navigation mud pulse system is a full-featured MWD with the ability to log inclination, azimuth, gamma, directional gamma, and resistivity. All of this data is gathered during the drilling operation and transmitted to the surface via pulsations in the drilling fluid. Our wireless surface gear collects and decodes the pressure pulses and interprets the data for the client and directional drilling engineers. All of the data can be logged and/or streamed to the client’s data management system.
The directional driller, whose job is to direct the well to the required target, needs to know the exact angle and direction in which he is drilling. The data collected through the MWD system is transmitted to the directional driller via the drilling fluid. That works as follows: by opening and closing a valve installed in the MWD and controlled by underground, pressure pulses are generated in the fluid inside the drill string. A pressure sensor at the top of the string acts as a receiver for these pulses, which are evaluated by a computer and the results are displayed to our MWD and DD personnel. This information allows our drilling crew to react accordingly.
A state-of-the-art bottom hole assembly is also equipped with numerous sophisticated measuring devices that allow us to check with great accuracy whether we are drilling through the best possible rock formation (which is sometimes only a few feet thick). Gamma, pressure, shock, vibe, and temperature are also measured at regular intervals. The more data we have, the more certain we can be that a well will remain in its target formation.
Native Navigations Top Mount Mud Pulse is one of the BEST in the industry providing you all of the technology without the headaches. This TMP gives you a strong consistent pulse, with three flow options, even in extreme environments which almost eliminates problems downhole. The rugged durability of this TMP increases resistance to vibration with increased wiring protection enabling it to better handle the extreme environments of 175°C operational. This refined design includes adaptations of several of familiar parts and assemblies for easy maintenance and oil fill. PLUS you can eliminate the need for a motor drive and extend your battery life with this efficient solenoid-based technology.
