Vanguard Tricone Roller Cone Drill Bits

Lower cost-per-foot using premium roller cone drill bit technology in high-cost intervals

Hughes Christensen Vanguard Tricone™ roller cone drill bit platform lowers your cost-per-foot with improved bit reliability and decreased NPT in high-cost intervals. We integrate our engineering and application expertise with fit-for-purpose designs that allow you to drill faster with longer bit life.

These steel tooth and TCI roller cone drill bits have an elastomer or metal-face seal in the sizes you need. We’ve improved the bearing and seal life, grease formulation, cutting structures, and materials for enhanced reliability, steerability, and increased ROP. With our proven track record in global applications, you can rely on our roller cone drill bit solutions to achieve your drilling objectives in complex intervals.

Are you concerned about the technical drilling difficulty of an upcoming well? How about the extreme temperature downhole? Or those high build-up rates expected in directional applications? Call us or send us an e-mail to ask our experts how we can optimize your drilling program.
