• BlackBox/BlackStream 6.75-in. EMS Tool

    The 6.75-in. BlackBox™ and BlackStream™ EMS tools, available in either memory recording or IntelliServ™ data streaming configurations, are capable of an array of measurements including multi-axis vibration, load, pressure, bending*, and rotation. Our collar-based EMS tool can help us deliver custom solutions for drilling challenges such as stick-slip, whirl, and borehole quality to optimize drilling performance and reduce well delivery costs. BlackBox downhole dynamics data is stored in memory for detailed analysis at the surface. Surface data acquisition, visualization, and software analysis capabilities provide well construction teams with the information to optimize performance. 

    Available measurements:

    • Weight
    • Torque
    • Bending*
    • Annular pressure
    • Internal pressure*
    • Three-axis vibration
    • Rotation
    • Temperature

    * Measurements available on certain configurations
