Vibe Scout Vibe Scout

Friction Reduction Tool

The Vibe Scout system utilizes drill string hydraulics to produce axial vibrations to overcome poor weight transfer, stick-slip, drag, and other common drilling dysfunctions associated with directional and horizontal drilling applications. The result is better tool face control, improved drilling performance, better bit life, and increased lateral lengths due to the dramatic reduction in static friction.

Field adjustable pressure drop, compatibility with all types of MWD systems, and superior quality control systems make the Vibe Scout your obvious choice for friction reduction services.


  • Wells where high torque and drag is limiting performance
  • Wells with poor weight transfer


  • Axial vibration
  • Adjustable pressure drop at the rig site
  • Offered in two frequencies to ensure MWD compatibility
  • Reduces drill string fatigue, friction, and stick-slip


  • All tools are flow-tested prior to each deployment
  • Tested at rigsite to provide maximum benefit and reduce the number of tools
    required to finish the job
  • Reliability through reduced MWD issues with an adjustable pressure drop and
    extensive testing with MWD systems
  • Axial movement maximizes friction reduction
  • Amplifier designed for optimum frequency to reduce erratic pulses and
    inconsistent performance 
  • External ability to reduce pressure drop
