Drill String Torque Reducer (DSTR™)

Drill String Torque Reducer (DSTR™)

The Drill String Torque Reducer (DSTR™) is a drill string tool intended for use in deviated wells where excessive rotary torque causes drilling and casing wear problems. The DSTR™ tool can reduce casing wear across the build section. For a given deviation profile, the applications program assists in maximizing the tool’s performance by determining the deployment in the critical sections of the borehole. For most extended reach drilling (ERD) applications, the tools are used in the build sections of the borehole, helping to extend the envelope of rotary drilling.
