Designed for high build rates in curve and lateral applicationsTALK TO AN EXPERT
Discover how to reduce costs and improve drilling efficiency
Drilling a curve and lateral on a rotary steerable system (RSS) tool requires a highly steerable bit to meet dogleg severity requirements. Simultaneously, the bit should be stable at higher rate’s of penetration (ROP) to minimize harmful shocks and vibrations when drilling the lateral. HyperSteer drill bits address both of these challenges by reducing makeup length and maintaining sufficient gauge length. Reduced makeup length allows the RSS to transfer more force to the drill bit for increased side cutting and higher build rates, while the gauge length provides stability in the lateral especially when ROP is increased.

HyperSteer directional drill bits are designed to minimize makeup length without eliminating the gauge pads. Historically, one of the primary means of reducing makeup length was by shortening, and in some cases, eliminating the gauge pads. However, while shortening the gauge length may increase build rate capabilities, it trades off stability and ultimately, durability. HyperSteer drill bits solve these issues by moving the breaker slot into the gauge pad and reducing length through elimination of the shank.
