HyperDrill (Energy Resources)
A repetitive hypersonic drilling system, compatible with existing rigs, that results in up to 10X ROP increase compared to rotary drilling in high strength rock and high borehole pressure environments, significantly improving conventional resource economics and enabling access to new and unconventional energy resources.
- Deep hard rock drilling system for energy industries.
- Up to 10X increase in rate of penetration compared to conventional rotary systems.
- Development work has been funded by one of world’s largest energy companies.
- Engineering feasibility study completed in 1H 2015 to evaluate integration with existing energy drilling technology.
Funded and Sponsored by Shell Game Changers for 2+ years.
