• We are excited to announce the commercial rental release of the BlackStream™ Enhanced Measurement System (EMS) StreamThru tools
     
    The EMS StreamThru tools are available in 6.75- and 8.25-inch sizes and are an extension of the BlackStream product line of real-time drilling dynamic tools that utilize the wired drillpipe network. 
     
    The new StreamThru tool supports drilling automation initiatives by adding an additional IntelliServ™ coil on the tool’s bottom connection, which allows data to be streamed to surface from the tools located below. 
     
    The addition of the bottom coil enables the combined parallel telemetry of the StreamThru tool data and any secondary wired drillpipe-enabled tools’ data to surface for use by the rig crew or applications. This new technology represents a major step forward in allowing not only combinations of multiple BlackStream tools to be run in a series along wired drillpipe, but also placements of other third-party wired drillpipe tools. 
     
    Additional features and benefits include: 
    • Allows for parallel memory recording and real-time telemetry via the IntelliServ wired drillpipe network
    • Transmits data to surface at rates up to 800 Hz
    • Records statistical data (maximum, minimum, mean, standard deviation) to memory every 2.56 seconds
    • Records downhole weight, downhole torque, two-axis bending, rotation, three-axis vibration, annular pressure, internal pressure, and temperature
    • Recording data can lead to mitigation/optimization of events such as weight transfer, stick-slip, and wellbore tortuosity
    • Available in two material varieties for application specific needs:
    • Standard nonmagnetic material applications
    • H2S "sour service" gas drilling applications
