Today, many well interventions are completed utilising coiled tubing that transmits energy downhole, via a fluid flow, to a drilling system. The fluid is pumped inside the coil and powers a PDM.
PDMs suitable for coiled tubing applications are of a small size and as a result, have relatively limited power.
Even with surface-automated WOB systems, PDMs frequently stall particularly when milling through the different materials that make up plugs and saddles and which cause torque to peak and fluctuate.
NeoTork protects the mud motor from variances in torque and greatly reduces the risk of stalling, this also extends coil life. The conditions are therefore better for mud motor and BHA components, which experience less damage. Smoother drilling and milling, within optimum parameters means faster ROP and swifter project completion.
