First ever GeoproHYDRA™ deployed in deep water operations in Nigeria. Tool was used to land 5-1/2” completion string for an injector well. String was successfully landed at depth without any incident.
Geopro tests the new GEN2X drive mechanism with configurable drive mechanism. Test was conducted at a test facility in Alberta Canada using a 7 inch (178 mm) GEN2 tool configuration. Results: - Standard tools initiate rotation with water circulation at 125 gpm. The GEN2X system used for the test initiated at less than 30 gpm with 80 RPM rotational speed. - 1500 RPM was measured at 190 gpm - Since most of the torque delivered by the GeoproHYDRA™ comes from an internal pressure drop system, the new system creates higher pressures but with a more focused flow system resulting in the much higher RPMs and lower initiation circulating rates.
Geopro deploys a 10-3/4 inch hydraulically actuated/driven GeoproHYDRA™PRO GEN2 casing reamer system for an Extended Reach Well in Eastern Europe. This is the largest sized hydraulically actuated, rotating reamer shoe ever deployed in the oil and gas industry. The 10-3/4 inch GEN2 system comes with Geopro's revolutionary GEN2X drive mechanism which affords rig crews the ability to displace fluids with high concentration of loss circulation material while operating across a wide range of parameters. The GEN2X drive mechanism significantly improves efficiency by focusing the carefully focusing the drive energy where it is most needed thereby improving torque and low range operability.
Geopro wins contract for supply of GeoproHYDRA™ for completion deployment to an E&P company in South East Asia.
Geopro’s innovative reamer shoe system tagged GRS-HD, designed for tougher reaming applications where conventional mechanical system don’t traditional perform well is now available. The GRS-HD now tagged as GRS360 is a Mechanical reamer shoe system with telescopic reaming action activated by slacking off weight and picking up the string. It’s is capable of applying up to 10 tonnes weight to the nose and the string for effective teaming and tool retrieval/reciprocation. Circulation is not required for activation but necessary for cleaning. Different type noses are available. The GRS360 is available in all hole sizes and capable of 360 degrees (circumferential) rotation with each activation cycle coupled with upward torque and weight dependent on internal drive mechanism.
A 4-1/2 inch GeoproHYDRA™PRO enables a customer to successfully land liner string at depth in problematic California well. Customer had left 210 feet of fish in hole after BHA was stuck. The 4-1/2 inch GeoproHYDRA™PRO system was used to successfully run and ream 4-1/2" liner to 9,980 feet resulting in 90% hole recovery and 80% of recovery of the horizontal section. The well has subsequently been successfully cemented.
