NOV will cover the new Vector™ Series 50 SelectShift™ downhole adjustable motor.

This revolutionary, patent-pending motor advancement allows rapid downhole adjustment of the motor bend setting, offering better hole quality, and increasing ROP throughout all sections of the well. The Vector Series 50 SelectShift downhole adjustable motor provides industry leading torque output capability, 100% flow to the drill bit and reduced bit-to-bend length.
