Utilize rotary steerable, the intelligent RSS, for an intermediate section
Ward County, Texas
A major operator in the Delaware basin collaborated with Halliburton to drill a 12-1/4"intermediate section improving performance compared to drilling motor runs in the same field, reducing well time by one day (26 hours). Halliburton delivered an engineered drilling solution, including the iCruise® intelligent rotary steerable system (RSS), 9-5/8" TerraForce™ positive displacement motor, and 12-1/4” Geotech® GTi75DMHEO drill bit. The 8” iCruise RSS was used to build 1.5° DLS to 20° inclination @ 260.5° azimuth. CruiseControl™ technology was utilized to hold the tangent down into the Brushy Canyon with a 25% increase in overall ROP for the run versus conventional offset wells, helping the operator maximize asset value.
