Tools & Technology

Tools & technologies developed by Newsco are designed, tested and maintained to optimize customer performance in a safe and environmentally sound manner. Technology innovation by our engineers enable greater levels of efficiency, enhanced information flow and analysis, resulting in better reservoir characterization and accurate and effective drilling.

Newsco has developed, patented, and refined a robust and highly efficient MWD Positive Mud Pulse system designed to operate in the most severe drilling environments. Our MWD system provides flexibility for additional sensors, remote operation and in-field maintenance while also capable of retireval and re-deployment of the tool into the drill string via wire line.Newsco's MWD kits come complete with Gamma Ray probes and software to produce Gamma Ray logs for accurate formation evaluation. Proprietary modifications have been made to our positive pulse systems to operate in high concentrations of Lost Circulation Material (LCM).This email address is being protected from spambots.

N.V.A.D.E.R. is a patented, innovative, fully retrievable vertical well monitoring tool that provides quick and accurate survey on demand telemetry. N.V.A.D.E.R. offers operators several benefits that optimize well performance:

  • Fully retrievable and multi-shot Capable
  • Remote unmanned capabilities
  • Expandable/upgradeable to add gamma & other sensors
  • Simple design for ease of assembly
  • Low cost LIH pricing
  • Unaffected by flow rate while drilling survey flow rate from .4-1.8 cum/Min
  • Well surveys/monitoring reports to town

Newsco has integrated two industry proven systems – Newsco MWD with APS technology Wave Propagation Resistivity system –to offer a robust and diverse Wave Propagation Resistivity (WPR) Tool suite. The WPR in combination with Newsco's TUFFSHOT solution provides an efficient and reliable survey system that is able to withstand the rigors of high LCM and harsh drilling conditions.This tool provides high resolution and accuracy recoding for Geosteering and LAS file modeling. The WPR operates in all mud types including oil-based and salt-saturated drilling fluids and provides real-time resistivity with flexible transmission formats. High- resolution data is stored in the down-hole memory which can be retrieved and processed during trips.This email address is being protected from spambots.

At Newsco, we employ Landmark's Compass™ well-planning software and applications. Compass™ is an industry-leading tool that allows for the permutation of available data to achieve a variety of functions such as targets, well mapping, well plan projections, plotting and reporting.Data used with Compass™ applications simplifies tracking by plotting real-time measurements for planned and actual drilling scenarios. It also facilitates accurate drilling by plotting distances from existing wells or proposed wells, True Vertical Depth (TVD), azimuth and coordinates to given points. The technology further allows for visual and numerical displays of well proximities – a very useful function at the time of laying out numerous well pads simultaneously which could be in close proximity of each other.Another key advantages of Compass™, is its database capabilities. The database allows pulling information from surrounding areas to optimize drilling performance. This feature provides real-time data on bottom-hole assemblies, daily drilling activities, cost analysis and breakdown, slide sheets and tool utilization.This email address is being protected from spambots.
