Halliburton releases NitroForce high torque, high flow drilling motor

HAL124777Halliburton Company has released NitroForce, a new drilling motor that provides increased power and performance to complete longer laterals faster and with greater control

The motor delivers high reliability helping operators reduce potential motor failure and increase drilling speed to save well time and costs.

Lamar Duhon, vice-president of Halliburton Sperry Drilling, said, “As operators focus on greater operational efficiency, we designed a motor with the highest horsepower in the oil and gas industry to drill faster and reduce non-productive time.

“Using this new motor allows operators to drill more consistent wells to increase their production.”

The NitroForce motor delivers longer runs with less wear by using new proprietary Charge elastomers and a stronger transmission, power section and bearings that work together to withstand high loads and torque. The design allows for a higher flow rate for improved hole cleaning and increased rate of penetration, which accelerates well delivery. By extending lateral lengths, operators can increase reservoir contact, minimise trips and reliably complete the curve and lateral in a single run.

In the US Midcontinent region, the NitroForce motor completed a 10,000-foot record run by drilling a 40 per cent longer lateral with a 30 per cent greater rate of penetration compared to a conventional motor.
