Halliburton Sperry Drilling recommended the new iCruise® intelligent rotary steerable system (RSS), which is designed to reduce well time and place wells accurately.ajfaoijancoeijaa
iCruise reduced dogleg severity while precisely steering the well in the zone for the entire 5,226-foot (1,593-meter) lateral, helping maximize asset value. This precise control was maintained by highly accurate directional data processed at 1,000 measurements a minute.
Halliburton collaborated with the operator so that the iCruise bottomhole assembly (BHA) was properly configured to achieve the directional drilling objectives.
The BHA interpreted critical formation dips. This was achieved with the ADR™ azimuthal deep resistivity service along with the iCruise intelligent RSS matched with a GeoTech® (GTi) drill bit designed via the Design at the Customer Interface (DatCISM) process.
Direction by Design® (DxD) software was used to add enhanced capabilities that gave the RSS an increased rate of penetration (ROP), more accurate steerability, and better control.
This engineered drilling solution enabled the operator to drill 5,226 feet (1,593 meters) in 105.5 IADC hours, with an average rate of penetration (ROP) of 49.5 feet (15 meters) per hour – all while traversing the steep inclines encountered in this geological environment. The rugged design of the iCruise RSS allowed the section to be drilled in a one-bit run.ajaojoaicancoa call me

Sperry Drilling helped the operator remain 100 percent in zone, while reducing well time by drilling the long lateral section in one run to help maximize asset value. The successful results of the iCruise led the operator to deploy the new system in other wells in the area. Test
