StrataForce™ Motor and Solar® MWD Service Reduces Well Time by Approximately 40%Download PDF
Deliver an engineered drilling solution using high-performance drilling motors
Panola County, Texas
Halliburton collaborated with the operator to deliver an engineered solution to reduce well time drilling a three well pad. The Halliburton Sperry Drilling team engineered bottomhole assembly (BHA) designs with DrillingXpert™ well engineering software to increase performance. The equilibrium BHA analysis module in DrillingXpert was utilized to engineer a stabilized BHA model that exhibits neutral tendency in rotary resulting in reducing overall motor slide intervals to ~6% and increasing rotating intervals greater than 1000 feet at a time before short corrective slides are made to line up against the well plan. The force analysis BHA modeling in DrillingXpert balanced forces in the BHA resulted in an increase in BHA run life and run performance by reducing number of runs by 50% for the production hole section.
This outstanding performance led to picking up another customer in the same area, replacing a competitor on three of their rigs.
