VIBRATION TECHNOLOGY, INC. – A LAYNE CHRISTENSEN COMPANY
Vibration Technology was established
as an oil field service in 1996 to provide resonant energy services primarily for stuck pipe applications.
The company utilizes acoustic theory to transmit standing wave resonant energy over long intervals of pipe
in oil and gas wells and has developed proprietary equipment and procedures that are highly effective in
the recovery of stuck pipe from wells. The pipe vibration process has proven to be the most cost effective
means of stuck pipe recovery currently available to the industry.
Current use of the technology has been focused in the field of stuck pipe recovery in drilling, completion
and workover applications.
New applications are under development that will enhance primary cementing through improved hole cleaning
as well as the maintenance of hydrostatic head during the curing phase.
