PRIMEXX Energy Partners Lands Curve While Rotating at Average ROP 84.57 Foot-Per-HourDownload PDF
Drill 8,858 ft. through a curve section and the entire lateral in a single run
Reeves County, Permian Basin, Texas
Halliburton Sperry Drilling in collaboration with PRIMEXX Energy Partners engineered a bottom hole assembly (BHA) that drilled 8,858 ft. from 38-degree inclination in the curve section through the entire lateral in one run. The drilling engineered solution consisted of the 6-3/4-inch StrataForce™ 6.0 high-performance motor with a 1.95-degree fixed bend housing matched with an 8-1/2-inch GeoTech® drill bit (GT74DHEO). The rate of penetration (ROP) while rotating averaged 84.57 foot-per-hour (fph) and the entire section averaged 65.61 fph. The slide percentage, including the curve was 13% with average motor yields of 12.2°/100 feet while landing the curve. Sperry Drilling drilled to produce by delivering the section with ZERO service quality issues and ZERO NPT, helping the operator maximize asset value.
