Oil and Gas Technology

MagHAMMER

  • Successfully completed two hard rock drilling tests to 5,500'rmotc
  • Tested with viscous drilling mud
  • Showed significant improvements in R.O.P (> 100%)
  • Subsequent inspections showed all components to be in good condition. 
  • We have just shipped two additional Hammers to the USA for further testing. 

Coil Tube tools

  • Successfully completed four extended reach tests to > 15,000 '
  • Added significant extra "reach" to operations
  • Successfully completed first commercial project in Saudi.

High Frequency micro hammer (MagBIT)

  • Designed and surface tested a micro hammer to 400 Hz
  • The MagBIT shows strong potential to increase R.O.P in medium hard formations 

  

Construction drilling 

Mag Top Hammer

  • This technology offers similar attributes to "Sonic" technology, but drills hard rock, and requires minimal power to run.    

Mineral exploration

MagHAMMER

  • We are currently testing several small diameter MagHAMMER's (<4") in a variety of formations (soft and hard). They are compatible with all drilling fluids and the results look promising.  

Drill bits

  • We have begun testing a proprietary line of drill bits, which to date have shown strong R.O.P in a wide variety of conditions ranging from hard rock to clay and are proving to be very robust.
