• SoftSpeed™ II

    After undergoing extensive field and simulation testing, we have developed SoftSpeed™ II, our latest Top Drive enhancement software created to reduce stick-slip oscillation without injecting additional energy into the drillstring.
    Description

    Our software system not only reduces downhole vibration but also allows enhanced weight on bit with less vibration, improved rate of penetration and borehole quality. With our system, you will have capabilities and analytics to automatically detect these stick-slip oscillations, ultimately enhancing drilling efficiency and reducing equipment wear.

    Once activated, the system will continually identify, quantify, and alert your team of any torsional vibrations occur. If stick-slip is indicated, your driller can activate SoftSpeed™ II and utilize auto tuning to provide optimal damping. Optionally, daily reports are sent to the rig and back-office personnel to inform your team of service’s use and performance. SoftSpeed™ II enhances your drilling operations and provides safe, reliable and improved drilling operations in the most extreme conditions. You can rely on our decades of experience and research to provide you with successful results while utilizing our state-of-the-art Top Drive software.
