XR™ Reamer Hole Enlargement Tool
The XR™ reamer tool is Halliburton’s premium hole enlargement tool, engineered for reliability and to minimize vibrations
Borehole enlargement while drilling with a rotary steerable system (RSS) BHA is not just about experience and cutting structure durability. Excessive vibration while drilling and reaming simultaneously can result in increased drilling costs and reduced rotary steerable system reliability and performance.
The XR reamer addresses these challenges through the adoption of unique technical innovation. These technologies include:
Self-stabilizing body - minimizes BHA whirl, making the hole enlargement operation more efficient
Articulated deployment - for tool reliability, durability, and hole quality
Autoblocking - enables the use of optimum WOB while drilling as all the loads are transferred to the reamer body rather than on internal components
XR reamer tool deactivation service
The deactivation feature is an optional service with the XR reamer tool. When finished enlarging the hole, the arms/cutting structure can be closed and drilling resumed or the XR reamer tool can be pulled while simultaneously circulating at full flow rate and rotating. The deactivation service is completely safe and field proven to help improve your drilling operation.
