Full Description

Mud Motor: Not a Dying Breed – From Workhorse to Racehorse

Content of the Workshop:

The positive displacement motor, commonly called a “mud motor”, is a simple but elegant machine that has become an integral part of the BHA especially when drilling shale wells. Even though tremendous advancements have been made but the challenges remain. The one-day workshop on mud motors covers the concepts, performance, advancements, future designs and how to use and when to use at difficult times. The workshop covers additional talks from industry technology leaders and is targeted for engineers, mud motor experts and manufacturers.
