Superior performance and consistent well delivery

At Halliburton, our presence in the Permian is built on commitment to safety, execution, and collaboration to help ensure that every well is delivered with precision and consistency. As we navigate the dynamic landscapes of this region, we collaborate with operators to set new benchmarks for superior performance and consistent well delivery. Through engineering, automation, and remote operations, Halliburton helps plan, design, and execute advanced well development. 

World Oil - The evolution of one run intervals

Today, many operators face a similar drilling challenge: To optimize the bottomhole assembly (BHA) and drill multiple wellbore sections in a single run.

Halliburton continues to improve tool reliability and capabilities to achieve these goals with the iCruise® X intelligent rotary steerable system (RSS) and the HyperSteer™ directional drill bit line.

Delaware Basin

An engineered approach to high DLS generation

A motorized iCruise® X intelligent rotary steerable system with a NitroForce RS motor deliver up to 12°/100 ft dogleg in the 8 ½-in. section. The low flow bypass of the motor maximized the pad force of the RSS and improved steerability.

Tailored solutions for a digital ecosystem

Our collaborative success in the Permian is not a result of individual efforts but a synergy of various elements working seamlessly together. We recognize that success is not a one-size-fits-all solution. Our approach is centered on understanding unique operator challenges and offering a comprehensive package that caters specifically to their needs.

 Success in the Midland Basin

Success in the Midland Basin

An operator saves 1.9 days while drilling a shoe-to-shoe curve-lateral, delivering an impressive 5,082 feet in just 24 hours.

Motorized iCruise® X RSS

The iCruise X Intelligent rotary steerable system is an automation-enabled platform designed specifically for longer well applications in harsh environments. With 6 high-speed processors, 3 tool face measurements, 1,000 measurements per second, and 400 rotations per minute, this technology extended operating limits.

HyperSteer™ Directional Drill Bit

Drilling a curve and lateral on the iCruise X RSS required a highly steerable bit to meet dogleg severity requirements. Simultaneously, the bit was stable at a higher rate of penetration to minimize harmful shocks and vibrations when drilling the lateral. The HyperSteer directional drill bit minimized makeup length without eliminating the gauge pads.

Exceed expectations, reduce time

Exceed expectations, reduce time

An operator accomplished over 6 consecutive single-run curve-laterals, each spanning more than 60,000 feet to complete finishing wells a remarkable 6 days ahead of the original plan.

Motorized iCruise® X RSS

Halliburton had the durability to deliver accurate, smooth 3D wells and laterals faster in the harsh drilling application. Halliburton has engineered a system of advanced sensors and electronics, sophisticated algorithms, and high-speed processors that helped the operator place the well more accurately.
