The early years of Oilwell Solutions consisted of consulting and developing a rotary steerable tool that was successfully tested then sold to Isys Tools. Over several years of consulting, we have helped grow our customers’ businesses and released several products into the marketplace that are considered commercial successes.
Currently, Oilwell Solutions is focused on continuous improvement of our EM-MWD Gap Subs, growth of the manufacture and supply of specialized high pressure/high temperature electrical connectors, and introduction of improved MWD subsystems. All while continuing to support our consulting customers.
Ed Beshoory has focused on drilling tool mechanical engineering since graduating from Texas A&M. His career began in 1990 with Smith International where he assisted in development of Dyna-Drill mud motors.
Moving to a startup in 1992, BICO Drilling Tools, Ed developed two generations of mud lubed motor designs that consistently outperformed oil sealed bearing packs under harsh conditions. Additionally, he worked on an instrumented mud motor, a rotary steerable system and, specialized drilling tools for river crossings.
In 2003, Ed formed Oilwell Solutions with the express purpose to develop a low cost rotary steerable system. Along the way, companies were requesting he consult with them on their in-house engineering projects. The consulting has been quite varied; from mud motors to MWD/LWD and well bore cleanout tools to surface equipment for pressure control during underbalanced drilling.
Sean Carter is a skilled mechanical designer with 22 years of experience in designing downhole drilling tools and packaging electronics for harsh environment applications.
Sean’s career began in 1992 with BICO Drilling Tools where he worked with Ed Beshoory. Together they were part of a team that created a new, easy to maintain, mud lubed motor design that contains features still in use today.
Sean moved on to Sensorwise, an engineering consultant to Halliburton, then GE-Tensor and finally the US Navy at Applied Research Labs: University of Texas. During this period Sean acquired the knowledge to package electronics for severe service applications such as MWD and LWD systems as well as autonomous underwater vehicles.
In 2006, Sean moved back to Houston and partnered with Ed Beshoory at Oilwell Solutions.
