Increases the data transfer speed by 300%, reduces equipment downtime
Embedded TCP/IP solution for optimized data transfer
The client wanted to optimize data transfer that took place during well boring. The process was too slow and caused significant production losses as a result of extended equipment downtime.
Recorded in actual downhole conditions, the data was stored in the internal 4 GB NAND flash memory integrated into a drill bit and extracted during a 30-minute break allocated for replacing the tool.
Softeq’s team delivered a solution based on the embedded TCP/IP stack operating as follows:
As a result of the code and hardware optimization, the data is now transferred within a record 11 minutes which is a 300% improvement compared to the initial result. The customer plans to engage Softeq in the stabilization phase that implies granting full access to the proprietary IP (e.g. code and production tools).
