AutoTrak Curve Pro RSS, Ultra XL/45 motor, and Dynamus bit save 30% in drilling costs and set new record
Jun 23, 2020
In the hypercompetitive energy industry, mile-a-day records have become the new benchmark. To mitigate costs, companies rely on new technology to reach total depth (TD) faster. Despite the drive for deeper wells drilled faster, certain challenges remain commonplace, including mitigating dog-leg severity (DLS) in lateral wells to decrease torque and provide a smooth wellbore for a successful casing run. With those two divergent forces driving operator mindsets, a customer in Colorado reached out to Baker Hughes for a solution to optimize horizontal drilling.
