Directional Drilling Services

NewTech Services Group offers directional drilling services

NewTech Services offers directional drilling, measurements and logging while drilling services using the company's own equipment as well as geosteering services.

NewTech Directional Drilling Companies:

  • Measurements While Drilling

    • The Frontier MWD mud-pulse MWD telemetry system includes a gamma-ray logging module and is manufactured in Houston, TX (USA) in sizes ranging from 89 mm to 240 mm.
    • The EM MWD telemetry systems are manufactured by TekhGeoBur, LLC in Samara (Russia) in sizes ranging from 178 mm to 203 mm.

    MWD equipment is maintained, repaired and calibrated in Repair & Maintenance Service Centers located in Russia, Serbia, Venezuela and USA.

  • Logging While Drilling

      The company uses own logging while drilling tools:

    • GRT geosteering resistivity tool is a unique azimuthal electrical LWD laterolog capable of detecting the direction of approaching formation boundaries in real time.
    • Remote Measurement Systems Limited (a subsidiary of NewTech Services Holding Limited) supplies MFPWR (Multiple Frequency Propagation Wave Resistivity), a dual-frequency (400 kHz and 2 MHz) resistivity tool, designed for a real-time geosteering and geophysical survey. The tool can operate in oil- and water-based muds.
    • A new neutron density logging tool is being engineered by Wolverine Oilfield Technology, a subsidiary of NewTech Services Holding Limited. The new tool will provide neutron density and porosity measurement to characterize formation porosity and lithology while drilling.
  • Rotary-Steerable System

      A new rotary steerable system (RSS) is being engineered by Wolverine Oilfield Technology, a subsidiary of NewTech Services Holding Limited. The new RSS will optimize drilling performance and directional control. Full and continuous rotation will reduce stick & slip risks, will increase ROP and the quality of wellbore cleanout.
