iCruise® Intelligent Rotary Steerable Drilling System Delivers Reliable PerformanceDownload PDF
Improve drilling efficiency and well contact for a group horizontal wells
In the Northeast, an operator sought assistance from Halliburton Sperry Drilling to improve drilling efficiency in their lateral well sections. By listening to the technical challenges and through collaboration with the operator, the team proposed to drill five horizontal wells using the iCruise® Intelligent rotary steerable system with a high-torque, high-flow motor, and optimized drill bit design. This engineered drilling solution delivered consistent and reliable performance over the five horizontal wells, completing each lateral in one run, maximizing the value of the assets. By maintaining high rate of penetration and achieving maximum well contact, the solution significantly improved the drilling efficiency and reduced well time.
