Every Halliburton drill bit is custom designed for its specific application. Our first-of-its-kind worldwide network of ADESM (Application Design Evaluation) specialists can be found in the geographic area of the customer’s drill site. They work closely with the customer on bit design, examining the local lithology, reviewing offset performance history, and syncing with the customer’s overall drilling plan/parameters.
High-end well planning software, such as SPARTA™, Direction by Design™, MaxDrill™, and iBitS™, analyze formation properties, define the application, and match bit design to the application. The software calculates drill bit efficiency in real time in relation to formation type and rock strength, and provides recommendations on drilling parameters, expected rate of penetration and projected bit wear.
Throughout the design stage, our specialists employ our Design at the Customer Interface (DatCISM) service network to allow us to deliver region-specific optimized drill bits.
