Single Piece Hole Opener
The Single Piece Hole Opener (SPHO) is an enhanced version of a PDC hole opener. The tool allows concentrically drilling and enlarging a pilot hole. The tool uses some of the newest technologies to reduce the vibration downhole while increasing ROP, longevity of cutting structure and directional response.
|Single piece structure
||The tool is milled from a single steel bar. The heat cycle is used once to make sure the material has the proper hardness and structure integrity.
|Cutting structure optimized
||The SPHO cutting structure is designed using the drill bits software for force balance and torque balance. The specialized capability of using the drill bits software to design a downhole tool sets us apart from other companies.
|Self-body stabilization above and below
||Enlarging the hole requires stabilizing the pilot hole, but also stiffening the BHA above the tool to avoid buckling. These features are integrated with the tool so that no additional stabilization is needed when a SPHO is added in the BHA.
||The SPHO is equipped with interchangeable nozzles exactly as a bit would have.
Three options are available:
The cutting structure can be customized depending on the application needed.
