TANDEM MOTORS INCREASE WELL BORE PENETRATION RATE

Running a positive displacement downhole motor with tandem power sections and the proper bit significantly increases the rate of penetration and reduces stalling problems. The use of positive displacement mud motors (PDMs) with two power sections has improved penetration rates on a number of drilling applications in western Canada. The majority of all the tandem motor runs to date have been successful. Results of these tandem runs show that tandem motors should be considered in any situation where a single motor is run.
