ROTARY STEERABLE SYSTEMS

Gordon Technologies’ BabelFish Integration Provides Increased Wellbore Quality and Data Density.

The GT Tracker™ RSS MWD utilizes Gordon’s industry-leading Shock Miser™ MWD system (GT-MWD). GT-Tracker provides Real-Time Communication with RSS systems enabling status conditions, performance indicators, and health variables to be transmitted by the MWD and allows shortened RSS Downlink time blocks by confirming downlink command acceptance. Gordon Technologies’ proprietary and patented Pulser with fast data rates carry RSS variables without sacrificing gamma density. In addition, Gordon’s proprietary Data Compression algorithms optimize MWD bandwidth resulting in superior steerability and performance refinement through live variable telemetry. Its High Signal to Noise Ratio ensures reliable data transfer from RSS to MWD. GT-Tracker helps operators drill straighter wellbores through the elimination of unnecessary dog legs  and is currently compatible with SLB PowerDrive Orbit RSS system.

PROBLEM

DESCRIPTION

SOLUTION

Efficient Data Transfer from Orbit  RSS to MWD

The proximity of the RSS transmitter to the MWD  tool receiver significantly impairs data transfer  efficiency. The MWD receiver typically requires extra  hardware and pushes competitive systems to use a  top mount pulser so that the MWD receiver can be  positioned closer to the RSS transmitter.

Gordon’s proprietary tool configuration incorporates  the receiver in a minimal way that allows for the  continued use of Gordon’s patented, proven and  industry-leading bottom mount pulser design.

Efficient Data Transfer from Orbit  RSS to MWD

Data transfer is negatively impacted and can be  interrupted by shock and vibration (S+V). Competitors experience communication intermittency due to the low signal-to-noise ratio  caused by typical drilling vibrations.

Gordon’s Shock Miser™ mitigates S+V resulting in a  high signal-to-noise ratio and sustained  communication/data transfer from RSS to MWD.

Limited MWD Bandwidth (Data  Speeds) from Downhole MWD to  Operators at Surface

Competitive systems utilize a top mount pulser  design which limits data transmission speeds.

Gordon’s bottom mount pulser is more reliable and  robust and isn’t limited by the data telemetry speed  restrictions of a top mount pulser design.

Gordon’s proprietary data compression algorithms  increase the effective MWD data rates. The increase  in bandwidth allows for full RSS variable transmission  without sacrificing gamma density.
