OILSERV were very satisfied with the support given by APS on a recent high profile job in Iraq. The job was completed using a 9.5” SureShot™ EM DG MWD tool drilling the 26” section from vertical to 24 degrees inclination at section TD (100-524m). The tool was then picked up again for the next 17.5” section to continue building to 55 degrees inclination at the section TD (524-1354m). A total of 1254m was drilled in a total of 312 circulating hours over 3 runs.
Wallingford, CT, USA - 8 August, 2017 – APS Technology Inc. today announced the successful deployment of the SureSteer™-RSS™ 475 Rotary Steerable System with the SureLog-WPR™ Wave Propagation Resistivity sensor in Western Siberia.
