Real-Time Decisions Using EVO ONE™

EVO One comparisonNew Style of MWD

  • Designed in 2011-13
  • Commercial launch in 2014
  • +75 Unified MWD kits ordered or operational
  • Multi-telemetry high speed robust tool
  • Higher EM data rate -> up to 16 bps (1 gamma every 0.5 sec)
  • High mud pulse data rate -> Up to 1.1 bps (toolface every 6 sec)
  • Data transmits simultaneous &independent on both channels
  • Configurable to be the same data or unique to each channel

Major Differences

  • Wider and shorter -> 2.5” & 13’ high voltage probe
  • Slick probe free of centralizers, same for all sizes
  • Full length stand alone fluid dampened centralization
  • Superior performance in high shock environments
  • Proprietary controlled collar system allowing for higher flow rates
  • Utilizes iOS app for display on wireless iPAD

Focused on Reliability

  • Interconnects eliminated, no free wires in air - Harness fatigue eliminated; cost and length savings
  • Reduced length and increased OD decrease susceptibility of drilling harmonics
  • Independent Mud Pulse and EM circuitry
  • Elimination of human factors (no internal offset)
  • Extreme strength mud pulse power and driveline
  • Full centralization, size on size, move as one with collar
  • Novel adaptive, high bypass pulse valve

Unified Telemetry Modes

  • EM Mode –Mud Pulse (“Pulsejet”) is inactive
  • Mud Pulse Mode –EVO EM is inactive
  • Dual Confirmation Mode –Simultaneous EM/ Pulsejet data streams (dual surface verification)
  • Dual Shared Mode –Simultaneous EM/Pulsejet different data streams and data rates
  • Parallel Mode –Simultaneous EM/Pulsejet, different data bits for same data set, ideal when EM/MP transmission rates match –time halved

Pulse-Jet Drive Highlights

Anti-Jam feature built with LCM in mind

  • Pulser detects obstruction and activates the anti-jam sequence and charges capacitor bank.
  • With capacitor bank fully charged the stored power is released and the rotor applies 120 in/lbs. of torque.
  • Anti-Jam sequence consists of rotor moving to open position while capacitor bank charges, then hits 3 times and returns to the open position and repeats till obstruction is clear.

Why is This System Applicable?

Reliability increase, twin engine plane

  • Single telemetry has no backup,
  • EVO ONE: provides redundancy which increases reliability

Coming out of casing for lateral section

  • EM tools must clear casing to work, therefore drill blind
  • EVO ONE: mud pulse is used to slide out of casing

Drilling through an anhydrite layer and losing EM signal

  • Cannot drill blind, must trip out, lay down EM and trip in pulse
  • EVO ONE: drill ahead using pulse, EM typically resumes once through the layer

Using pulse tool, waiting time for surveys after connection

  • Drillers must wait for surveys from pulse
  • EVO ONE: even in tough formations it is usually possible to provide EM surveys

Pulse stops decoding (i.e. LCM or pump noise)

  • Troubleshoot, no-go, trip out of hole
  • EVO ONE: drill ahead with EM while troubleshooting pulse issue

Decoding issues on either telemetry

  • EVO ONE: the alternate telemetry can be used

Boost baud rate

  • EVO ONE: 2nd channel boosts the baud rate, data decodes at separate times which means very high quality Gamma logs and data density

Eliminate piggybacking of a 2nd MWD tool

  • EVO ONE: piggybacking places sensors too far back to be effective and lost in hole cost with piggybacking are very high

Economics of EVO

  • Cost of low reliability (Tangible)
  • Savings from surveys during connection (Tangible)
  • Production $$ from being in zone with better data (Intangible)

EVO One Commercial Run Metrics

EVO One Commercial Run Metrics EVO Average Uptime EVO ONE Recent Highlights

  • Eclipsed the 100,000 downhole hour mark in June 2016
  • Permian MD record to 22,157’MD (12,100+ TVD) utilizing EM Surveys and MP logging to TD
  • Two of Inpetro’s clients have recently been awarded multi-year contracts with a super-major oil company based on EVO ONE capabilities
  • Deepest MD .5 sec pulse width - EVO-ONE Pulser decoded nearly flawlessly to TD at 19,225’ using the .5 sec pulse width (1.09 bits/sec) for the entire lateral section in the Permian.

EVO ONE Recent Highlights

  • New rig site electrical testing and noise mitigation has proven to aid in EM signal detection on multiple pads.
  • 12,400 TVD EM decoding – Recently in Loving county the EVO ONE tool reached a record depth of 12,408 ft TVD (17,000+MD) with perfect decoding of EM surveys while in Unified mode for the entire lateral.
  • 1.7 bits/sec pulser decoding – The EVO ONE pulser was recently tested in the foothills in Alberta operating at a pulse rate of 1.7 bits/sec. The tool performed and decoded the entire surface hole without issue and the 1.7 bit/sec pulse option is currently available for use with the current commercial configurations.

EM Telemetry Details –Permian

  • Total of 14,455 EM Telemetry hours to June 1st 2016, one vertical well section with Pioneer
  • Includes Midland and Delaware basin work
  • Frequencies generally correlate to bit rate –our 4Hz give 4 bits/s, 1Hz gives 1bit/s.
  • Midland work tends to be shallower and can allow for higher frequencies
  • Typical profile would be Full EM for vertical and curve, Full EM for horizontals with OBM, and EM survey only with Full MP for horizontals with WBM/Brine

EM Telemetry Details MP Telemetry Details –Permian

  • We don’t currently track MP speeds by hour, but we have a summary configuration plan for Permian.
  • Two current MP telemetry speeds in operation –1.1 bit/s sec and 0.6 bit/s
  • 1.1 bit/s is typically used down to 17,000ft MD, with maximum MD of 19,500ft in Permian.
  • 0.6 bit/s is typically used below 17,000ft MD
  • For Midland County work 1.1 bit/s has been used to TD
  • 1.7 bit/s MP telemetry is now in use in Canada and is available for Permian work(expect this to be usable to at least 10,000ft MD).
  • 2 bit/s MP telemetry anticipated in Q4 2016.
