Drilling Services

Alphaden offers a vast inventory of specialized tools for drilling activities. We design, rent and/or sell tools based on the specific project needs of our customers.

Drilling Products including temporary onshore and offshore accommodation modules and accessories, completion tubulars and associated accessories), as well as downhole drilling tools, such as tubulars (primary drill pipe strings, landing strings, drilling fluid, and bottom hole tools (stabilizers, non-magnetic drill collars, and hole openers).

Offerings include:

  • Accommodation modules
  • Bottom Hole Assemblies
  • Premium Drill Pipe
  • OCTG


Measurement-While-Drilling (MWD)

Alphaden utilizes measurement-while-drilling (MWD) surveying technology to determine the well path and its position in three-dimensional space. MWD is a valuable tool that can establish true vertical depth, bottom-hole location, and orientation of directional drilling systems.

A range of measurements of the drillstring, wellbore properties are available to ensure the drilling is occurring according to plan and to identify conditions that could lead to equipment damage or other non-productive time events. These measurements provide information on:

  • The forces acting on the drillstring and BHA including dynamic behavior and the occurrence of vibration.
  • The static and dynamic pressures internally within the drillstring and the annulus.
  • The size and shape of the wellbore itself.


Logging-While-Drilling (LWD)

Advanced sensor technologies deliver reliable formation evaluation data in real time

Logging-while-drilling (LWD) sensors acquire formation evaluation data to help you gain greater reservoir insight, leading to timely decision-making and more accurate well placement.

Alphaden offers a wide array of LWD sensors that can be engineered to provide specific reservoir data for various applications, including petrophysical analysis, geomechanical analysis, and reservoir fluid characterization, enabling you to enhance reservoir understanding and reduce well time of your drilling projects.

We can help you to maximize the value of your assets through increased production and lower costs every step of the way.


Directional Drilling

Alphaden’s Directional Drilling services have earned a renowned reputation for providing reliable and cost-effective solutions. Our comprehensive integration of tools, processes and personnel delivers drilling performance with faster rates of penetration, superior hole quality and precise wellbore placement. We offer a variety of directional drilling services for all applications – from land and shallow water environments to extended-reach offshore drilling.


Drilling Optimization

Alphaden Drilling can optimize the drilling process through a proven philosophy of modeling, measuring and optimizing by expert personnel whose recommendations help operators make decisions that can lead to improved drilling practices. The Alphaden drilling optimization service focuses on maintaining the integrity of the drillstring, managing the hydraulic pressures, ensuring effective hole cleaning and determining the pressure limits of the open hole in order to maintain wellbore integrity—all crucial aspects of drilling a wellbore.

A number of sensors delivering information from both downhole and the surface are used to measure the real-time performance of drilling operations.
