Bench Tree’s HPR Integrated MWD/LWD System Helps Customer Drill First Well in Harsh Latin American Environment

A leading provider of technologies and differentiated services was contracted to help an operator drill an exploratory well in a harsh environment in Latin America. To ensure they would complete the well within the timeframe and in the sweet spot, they needed a robust all-in-one formation evaluation tool that would record the most accurate gamma ray, resistivity, and survey measurements possible.

The customer partnered with the Bench Tree team because of their outstanding record of providing technologies with reliable, accurate data. They used Bench Tree’s 4 ¾-in HPR Integrated MWD/LWD system, which combines the high-precision resistivity and short string measurement-while-drilling (MWD) tools, while optimizing the bottomhole assembly to 48 feet for the collar, base tool, and battery sub.

The well, which was the first completed in this area, was drilled in 28 days and seven runs, despite harsh environmental conditions. The data from Bench Tree’s HPR Integrated solution allowed all parties to receive the necessary information at the surface quickly so appropriate real-time decisions could be made.
