Lock your wellbore in the pay zone with the high-resolution at-bit azimuthal gamma images.



Key Features

  • Up to 4 quads of gamma in real time

  • 16 sectors of gamma in the tool memory

  • Total gamma measurements in real time

More Features

  • Continuous inclination measurement

  • Downhole RPM measurement

  • 3-axis shock & vib monitoring in real time

  • Can be run either or above motor (with proper connections)

Collar Size(s) Available

  • Available in 4-3/4 in., 6-3/4 in., and 8-in. collar sizes

  • Modular packaging design permits battery, gamma sensor, or electronics replacement in shop or at rig site

  • Very short sub (2.92 ft or 0.89 m) optimizes bit steerability

  • Drop-in EM short-hop receiver retains MWD tool string retrievability

  • Powered by self-contained batteries with battery life up to 200 hours

High-resolution azimuthal gamma allows well placement in greater confidence

Built-in EM short-hop system enables at-bit data transmission in real time

Available in both standard version (150°C) and high-temperature version (175°C) 

  • Place wells accurately and maximize reservoir contacts with a clear view the geology around the bit while in rotating or sliding mode

  • Identify target zones timely with the superior gamma ray images located as little as 1.3ft from the bit

  • Early detection of changes in lithology

  • Steer within formations with lateral dip and/or thickness changes



  • PayzoneTracker has an outstanding track record of runs from hundreds of wells

  • PayzoneTracker has been deployed in multiple geographic locations including the North America, China, the Middle East, and Australia

  • PayzoneTracker has demonstrated superior performance in brine and oil-based muds

  • PayzoneTracker sensor modules, electronics modules, and hatch covers fit all the different collar sizes
