An upcoming segment of Advancements with Ted Danson will focus on how developments in technology are creating solutions for wells and hard to reach spaces.

In this segment, audiences will learn how recent developments in technology are engaging with and disrupting friction. With a look at Friction Tool Solutions, the show will explore its patented Disrupter® which exploits the negative energy of hole drag by turning side contact force into applied casing oscillation.

Viewers will learn how the Disrupter® reduces friction factors by turning sliding friction into dynamic friction, decreasing casing run time, and increasing available hook load at TD to plan for extending the lateral sections to maximize reservoir exposure.

“The Disrupter’s unique design has successfully reduced friction by a minimum of 20% when compared to conventional centralization available to the industry, the Disrupter’s performance has been flawless to date,” said Charles Desouza, Drilling Engineer / Optimization.

Spectators will see how the Disrupter® oscillates, which in turn applies the same oscillation motion on the casing string, effectively turning sliding friction into dynamic friction.

“The technology requires no engineering changes to implement in existing well design, it is formation independent, completion type independent, and mud type independent,” said Ed Sullivan, senior producer for the Advancements series. “We look forward to exploring this on the series.”
