  • Publication number: 20190360307
    Abstract: Slow-rotating tools may operate within a tubular structure such as casing or tubing strings in a wellbore, e.g., to clean an interior surface of the tubular structure or to support other wellbore applications. A slow-rotating tool may include a nozzle assembly that rotates with respect to an end of a coiled tubing strand or other conveyance, and a working fluid delivered through the conveyance may operate to drive rotation of the nozzle assembly. A motor component of the tool may include a coiled conduit that winds and un-winds in response to pressure fluctuations in the working fluid. The coiled conduit may be operably coupled to a pair of directional clutches that harness the rotational motion induced by the winding and unwinding, and impart the rotational motion to the rotatable housing in a single direction.

  • Patent number: 9702202
    Abstract: Systems and methods for reducing the amount of torque transferred to the Bottom Hole Assembly and the drill string during drilling operations are disclosed. The drill string includes an optionally non-rotatable portion. A rotational hold down system is positioned at a first position on the drill string where it is not rotationally coupled to the drill string. The rotational hold down system is then moved to a second position on the drill string where it is rotationally coupled to the optionally non-rotatable portion of the drill string. In the second position, one or more bars on the rotational hold down system substantially prevent rotation of the optionally non-rotatable portion of the drill string.
