Wallingford, CT, USA – 4 July, 2016 – APS Technology, Inc. today announced another depth record for APS MWD in China.
A key APS China customer using SureShot™ MWD recently finished a hot, deep well at a measured depth of 8,050 m (26,411 ft) with a TVD of 7,562 m (24,810 ft). It is the deepest horizontal well drilled to date in China, and we believe it to be a world record due to the TVD > 7,500 m, where wells have been drilled successfully with APS Mud Pulse MWD. The customer drilled the lateral hole section in 4.75 in. hole size for 461 m (1,512 ft), from casing point at 7,459 m (24,767 ft), using water-based mud, with a BHT of 165°C. Decoding, which can be a challenge at this depth, was excellent.
