Drill Bits

Improve drilling economics with exceptional drill bit solutions

When you choose a Baker Hughes Tricone™ roller cone drill bit, you get the right bit for the right application so you can stay in the hole longer with fewer trips at lower cost-per-foot. We can say that confidently because we’ve been engineering this technology successfully for more than 100 years, a legacy no other drill bit manufacturer can match.

We continuously search for new ways to help you drill deeper and faster with a significant R&D commitment to your drill bit success. This commitment includes a full-scale research rig and downhole simulator.

Our DART™ design application review team offers a multifunctional approach for your specific challenges with our high-performance Hughes Christensen PDC, Tricone™ roller cone bit, hole-enlargement, and coring products and services. Each of these solutions offers maximum value with a platinum line of superior performance in difficult applications; a classic line of field-proven competitive technology; and a standard line with economic performance in less-challenging applications.
