WINC+ (Wireless Inclination with Azimuth) has the ability to provide inclination, azimuth and toolface, so you can keep your hole straight and on target, avoiding costly doglegging and potential hole conditions as a result of not circulating while surveying.
The WINC+ tool is capable of surveying at any point by simply stopping the pumps and starting them. A survey is reported back to surface while you are drilling ahead, there is no need to wait for the survey to be pumped up; it’s done! WINC+ can get you back on target without having to slow down ROP and waiting for gravity to get your hole back to vertical.
