The Baker Hughes Performance Drilling service enables a high-quality well at less cost-per-foot in the fastest time possible. We’re setting the benchmark with this better approach.
Our integrated package of products and services is custom designed to meet the demands of your operating plan. This application-specific drilling service is engineered for dynamically stable, high-torque performance so you can drill safer and more efficiently to reach production faster; increase BHA and drillstring durability; minimize ledging, breakouts, and bottlenecking; improve casing and cementing operations; and facilitate high-quality logging.
Our reliable, cost-efficient service offers you the knowledge and experience to optimize job execution, including application engineering, high-performance drill bits, durable straight-hole motors and vertical steering systems, and optimized drilling fluids.
Operator significantly reduces cost
While drilling a second interval, an operator working in Texas encountered a great deal of shale and sand return. By injecting the Baker Hughes TERRA-RATE™ enhancer, the formation was successfully stabilized. ROP increased from a maximum of 35 ft/hr [11 m/hr] to a maximum of 60 ft/hr [18 m/hr]. This nearly doubled the ROP of traditional WBM, saving the operator nearly $100,000 in environmental cost associated with OBM.
