Drill Collar Transponder Bucket

The Drill Collar Transponder Bucket allows a subsea transducer to be mounted directly onto a section of drill string so that the exact depth of the drill string can be measured using a subsea transponder array.


Lightweight Aluminium construction

Compatible with various subsea transponders (not included)

The Drill Collar Transponder Buckets mount onto a drill pipe sub that has grooves machined in it to secure the buckets. A transponder is mounted on the surface, which then communicates with the pre-installed subsea array in order to determine the depth of the drill string and equipment that is being deployed.

If necessary, the transponder can be removed by ROV whilst subsea.


TMT can customise the tool to suit your requirements.
