Short Hop - Telemetry System

Overview, Features & Benefits

The Short Hop Telemetry system provides drillers with up-to-date drilling information where it is needed most. The Short Hop system can be used to position sensors at any position necessary including below the drilling motor. It can be used to provide azimuthal gamma, inclination or pressure data from the drill bit which can be communicated to the MWD system to be transmitted to surface. Additional MWD and LWD sensors may be added to the BHA to provide additional features to existing MWD equipment.

  • Provides near-bit and auxiliary downhole information.
  • Acoustic transmission method allows for use with all types of MWD system.
  • Versatile positioning capabilities.
  • Configurable insert-based design provides long wear life and multiple sensor options.
