DrillThru Solution for Drilling Trouble Zones

Drill the well you originally planned—without the risk

Trouble zones are hard. Conditions such as tar and salt layers, reactive shales, and narrow pressure margin windows can lead to:

  • fluid loss
  • stuck pipe
  • well integrity problems

Each of these can cripple your well economics and ultimately kill a well. Managing these risks leads to an agonizing choice: go through and risk your operation…. or go around and risk your profitability.

The Baker Hughes DrillThru™ solution for drilling trouble zones offers a proven, comprehensive workflow and technologies that let you stay within your drilling budget, get optimal production, and drill the well you originally planned.

Don’t let trouble zones keep you from building your planned wellpath. Contact your Baker Hughes representative today to learn more about how you can overcome trouble zones and build the well you planned.
