The new iCruise® intelligent rotary steerable system (RSS) from Halliburton Sperry Drilling helps reduce well time through fast drilling, fast tripping time and quicker casing drill outs. This accurately places the wells in the reservoir using precise steering capabilities, and reliably reaches total depth so you can drill longer wells, predictably, on time and on budget.

iCruise® Intelligent RSS smart technology includes advanced electronics, sophisticated algorithms, multiple sensors and survey packages, and high-speed processors with some of the highest mechanical specifications on the market. With 400 RPMst, and thorough mechanical design, it maximizes penetration rates in unconventionals, deep water, and mature fields. With dogleg capabilities of 18°/100 feet and precise directional control it can deliver any well path to reach the reservoir.
Real-time, automated advisory steering and vibration commands deliver predictable and repeatable results to plan ahead and make decisions in real-time. Precise steering and accurate well placement reduce risks and NPT. Fully autonomous CruiseControl™ Technology allows the iCruise to drill gun barrel straight tangent sections whether vertical, tangent, or in the lateral without requiring any operator input. Automated drilling with iCruise helps maximize asset value by landing the curve and reaching target depth while reducing risks, and cost-per-BOE.
Advanced electronics, algorithms, and processors enable complex downhole calculations and precise, real-time measurement-while-drilling.
