• The industry must continue to seek improvements in efficiency and reductions in cost to ensure profitability. A significant number of products and technologies have been developed to drive performance with this need in mind, and several of our tools are clear leaders in this area. Various versions of our Agitator™ system, including the new AgitatorHE and Agitator NEO, use friction reduction to drive increases in ROP and reduce stick-slip. The higher energy of the AgitatorHE provides more efficient energy for extended-reach applications, while the Agitator NEO works with coiled tubing to transfer weight to the BHA more effectively while extended the point of lock up.

    Case histories from around the world have demonstrated the efficacy of our downhole tools in a wide variety of operations, including everything from shale drilling and fishing to plug-and-abandon operations and completions. Read our feature article from Oilfield Technology to learn more about how we’re improving performance in challenging applications here.
