UltraHT measurements-while-drilling service
Receive critical downhole data from ultraHT wells with a high-speed telemetry service built to operate at ultrahigh temperatures.
Data compression platform
The Orion II data compression platform enables transmission of more high-quality real-time MWD and LWD data to surface while drilling long and deep wellbores at fast penetration rates. The delivery of real-time data can inform drilling and well placement decisions at critical moments, improving directional control and reducing risk.
At a given physical telemetry rate, the Orion II platform uses advanced compression algorithms and signal modulation methods to push mud pulse signals further—enabling up to 60 curves at 2 data points per foot at a drilling speed of 250 ft/h.
At the surface, the Orion II platform's high-quality sensors eliminate electrical noise and demodulate weaker signals at high telemetry rates for enhanced data quality. It also enables sending faster commands in real time while drilling.
Higher transmission speeds provided by the telemetry platform also contribute to increased well accuracy and downhole tool control while drilling extended-reach and ultradeepwater wells. In the longest well ever drilled—over 40,000 ft—the Orion II platform’s downhole signal modulation methods pushed physical mud pulse telemetry further, delivering rates of 4 bps for 38,200 ft and 2 bps from that depth to TD.
