Shock Miser UBHO
Legacy Directional utilizes the Gordon Technologies “Patent Pending” SHOCK MISER UBHO/PULSER SUB on every BHA.
The design consists of 2 parts:
- The Shock Miser UBHO Pulser Sub
- The Shock Miser Mud Pulse Transmitter Valve Assembly
HOW IT WORKS:
The Shock Miser UBHO Sub has a built in “bi-directional” shock absorber that isolates the MWD tool from harmful axial (Z axis) shock and vibration. The patented design also dampens lateral shock, vibration, and torsional shock created from motor stalls and stick/slip by partially isolating the MWD tool from the drill string.
As with our motor philosophy, Legacy Directional utilizes multiple RSS platforms for various applications and formations.
Our Directional Group has been very active in the last 10 years working with and developing different RSS systems. If a rotary steerable is selected for a particular project, Legacy Directional will match the correct Rotary Steerable platform for that particular project well.
No single mud motor on the market provides the best “fit for purpose” for the various applications across North America.
For this reason, we have elected to focus our mud motor selection process that will offer the best features for a specific job, rather than (or in lieu of) equipment that we are financially invested in. Legacy Directional is currently set up with several motor vendors in various regions to fit the client’s needs.
Legacy Directional provides on-site or remote GeoSteering solutions to satisfy the client’s needs and objectives with highly experienced and knowledgeable field crews.
We utilize the latest geo-steering software packages from several prominent Software manufactures for real-time onsite decision making.
Well Planning Services
Legacy Directional provides in-house directional well planning, hydraulics with Torque and Drag modeling for our clients to accurately and efficiently plan and execute drilling the wellbore efficiently as possible.
Our team works directly with the client to ensure a comprehensive well profile is created to reach the target and maximize uptime through the life of the project. We utilize Landmark Compass directional well planning software to give detailed reports and daily updates through the entirety of the project. When the project is completed, a detailed and accurate completion report is delivered to the client for further review.
