Synapse

Performance insights and optimization service

Crucial at-bit data that optimizes drilling parameters on upcoming wells

Synapse performance insights and optimization service uses a memory-mode shock and vibration logging tool located inside Smith Bits PDC and roller cone bits. It provides postrun data to evaluate drilling system performance by measuring 3-axis acceleration, torsional vibration, and rpm. The data is quickly processed and customized, per the customer’s requirements, to provide an improved understanding of downhole events and identify performance limiters.

Postrun analysis of Synapse service data enables quick development and adjustment of drilling parameters, further optimizing drilling performance for improved overall efficiency while downhole. Additionally, the data helps reduce premature tool failure, direct tool maintenance systems, evaluate performance of new motor designs, and optimize the bit selection.

True at-bit data improves safety and efficiency

The Synapse service is a self-contained sensor module housed within the bit for true at-bit measurements. Its nonmagnetic assembly prevents interference within the BHA. And the memory-mode logging with optional preset sleep mode enables efficient data acquisition (rotational speed, shock and vibration, and temperature).
