What are PDM motors?

The PDM is often called a mud motor and is used in far more wells than the turbine. The mud motor is made up into the BHA of the drill string below the bent sub, between the bent sub and drill bit (Fig. 3.20).

What are the advantages of mud motor?

Mud motors have a number design advantages over classic turbodrills and allow carrying out operations to install controlled directional and horizontal wells with maximum efficiency indicators.

What is the purpose of a mud motor?

A mud motor is used for hunting waterfowl in the marshes, bogs, and waters where ducks are often found. Depending on the size of the mud motor, these shallow water boats carry large loads of decoys, guns, ammunition, food, fuel, hunting companions, dogs, and more, so you will never go without on any of your hunts.

What is the difference between mud and RSS motors?

RSS enables drill string rotation while deviating the wellbore. The difference in this steering mechanism makes RSS drills faster than the conventional mud motor while building or dropping well trajectory angle. Table 1 shows a comparison of ROP between RSS and conventional steerable motor.

What is mud motor in drilling?

A mud motor (or drilling motor) is a progressive cavity positive displacement pump (PCPD) placed in the drill string to provide additional power to the bit while drilling.

What kind of drilling is a mud motor used in?

Mud Motors are used in oil and gas drilling operations. They are placed in the drill string to aid the drill bit while operating. These motors use drilling fluid (sometimes called drilling mud) that is pumped to create motion in the section of the drilling system that moves the drilling bit.

How does a drilling mud motor work?

The power section of a mud motor consists of a rotor and stator. These two components harness the pressure and flow of the drilling fluid and translate it into torque and rpm that spins the drill bit. Thus, a mud motor provides simultaneous rotary cutting action and steering.

What is RSS drilling?

A rotary steerable system (RSS) is a form of drilling technology used in directional drilling. It employs the use of specialized downhole equipment to replace conventional directional tools such as mud motors.

Is mud motor part of BHA?

The mud motor is made up into the BHA of the drill string below the bent sub, between the bent sub and drill bit (Fig. 3.20).

What is a drill motor?

A drill motor is an electrically powered, hand-held motor that drives a drill bit used to drill holes. There are two general types of drill motors. Some are powered by a battery pack that fits in the handle… The other type is powered by an electrical cord plugged into a wall outlet.

What is differential pressure on a mud motor?

Normal operating differential pressure on larger motors (4 3/4 in./119 mm, 6 3/4 in./169 mm, and 8 in./200 mm) should not exceed 400 to 450 psi (28 to 31 bars) and 150 to 250 psi (10 to 17 bars) on smaller motors (2 7/8 in./72 mm, 3 3/8 in./85 mm, and 3 3/4 in./94 mm).
