185°C High-Temp(HT) Mud Pulse MWD Systems

The KeyDrill 185°C MWD System has been designed using components which are proven to withstand high temperatures. Our directional module, gamma module and pulser are reliable at drilling temperatures up to 365°F (185°C). Our data transfer rates are fast, up to 2 bps. We can provide directional date, gamma and drilling dynamic parameters such as real-time shock and vibration, stick-slip, RPM etc. You can downlink to the tool using flow or RPM signals for dynamic sequencing of different data which can be configured while sliding and rotating. Our high accuracy continuous inclination and continuous azimuth measurements provide early warning for directional corrections. The KeyDrill MWD system is an open platform with up to 36 Generic Variables to support third party Gyros, Resistivity and Rotary Steerable (RSS) tools.

KeyDrill Automatice Survey Correction

Automate Survey Correction While Drilling

KeyDrill has teamed up with the most widely used survey experts such as H&P (MagVAR), Superior QC, roundLAB and IPM to create automate survey correction for efficient workflow. Automate survey correction procedures help avoid human errors by eliminating manual data entry, save man-hours and improve wellbore placement accuracy without loss of rig time. The correction procedures run in the background and can automatically synchronize with survey correction cloud stations. It can also provide our customers remote access through a cloud server from anywhere in the world.

KeyDrill 185°C High-Temp MWD Technology

KeyDrill has extensively tested our newly designed tools with great success. Multiple field runs combined with extensive 185° shop testing has verified the new KeyDrill 185°C High-Temp MWD Technology.

Fast Pulse MWD System

The KeyDrill downhole tool and surface tandem has proven that it successfully operates at a respectable pulse width of 0.375 second (1.4bps) in the field. KeyDrill has recently teamed up with a third party to achieve a true “Fast Pulse” system with pulse widths down to 0.125 second (4 bps) MWD system. The MWD system easily passed its flow-loop test on September 18, 2018 as seen in the video
