Extends the life of the drill pipe by becoming the sacrificial lamb for wear instead of the steel its self. Lowers friction/reduces torque and decreases buckling = more weight on bit and better ROPs (rate of penetration). The average life of HH1 is 300,000’ horizontal drilling. Also as it slicks up it allows for less surface contact area, which is key for extended reach applications. Due to HH1 low heat application it allows us to treat the mid body of the steel pipe which has never been done before. Our motto is “extended reach with extended life”.
Yellow band is a down graded rating used for drill pipe that does not meet the minimum OD (Outside Diameter) requirements. Once the drill pipe is classified as yellow band it is only run in vertical section or stacked in the yard for scrap. Our HH1 application allows us to build back up the OD and add strength back to the body of the yellow band giving it a new life and rendering it capable to run in the horizontal section again. This creates big savings for operators because the pipe has already been paid for and the HH1 allows it to run for another 300,000’.
Due to the HH1 low heat application it allows us to treat the mid body of the aluminum pipe and change the metalllurgy, , which has never been done before .
We can protect the upset and add to the mid body of the work string joints. This allows for protection of your assets and with our lower friction coefficients & torque reduction will allow you to reach the last few plugs or debris that you need cleaned out of your well. Because HH1 as a natural friction reduction agent, It will also save on friction reducers. This is a better alternative to hardbanding, which due to the pre heat application process changes the metallurgy of the pipe.
Our ability to apply our process as a free form can accommodate almost any design. Unlike the most common methods of making stabilizers (CNC $$$ or Weld On not allowed in some wells), we are able to spray directly on any stock (Non Mag or Steel). Another advantage is that we can create a better flow area due to the ability to shape our application with straight edges or curved and smooth transitioning build ups. You create the design and we can make your dreams come true. Our HH1 application is MWD friendly showing a zero on a Gauss Meter. If it comes in Non Mag then it will leave Non Mag.
We can apply our HH1 on your drill collar to help protect the body of these expensive but necessary pieces of your BHA (bottom hole assembly). We can conform to the spiral design that is created during the manufacturing process
Do you have nozzle washout issues?? We can spray the the nozzle area to help your erosion issues.
We are able to coat risers with great success to help protect the body of your risers similar to how we protect your drill pipe body. No more junking your high dollar asset for simple pipe or wireline wear.
Let us protect the inside of your frac and cement heads from the high pressure solids that get pumped everyday. We can be the sacrificial lamb instead of your core assets.
White Horse Technology has been applying HH-1 to drill pipe, work strings and directional and fishing tools with high success over the past few years. With over 500,000 feet plus lateral drills in abrasive formations to date, White Horse Technology is out ranking others in the field.
