Applications
  • Deepwater
  • Challenging well profiles: Hard rock drilling, Soft formation drilling, Interbedded formation drilling
Overview

The BHGE AutoTrak G3™ rotary steerable drilling system allows you to navigate precisely into the target using superior directional control in the most challenging well profiles.

We integrate steering control with real-time MWD/LWD (measurement while drilling/logging while drilling) measurements for outstanding hole quality and maximized hydrocarbon recovery.

Access difficult targets in diverse environments

The system allows you to arrive at difficult targets that you can’t reach with steerable mud motors or other rotary steerable systems. You can add and combine any of our LWD and drilling optimization systems into an integrated bottomhole assembly (BHA) for your application requirements.

Our reliable AutoTrak G3 system enables steering in the most diverse environments and conditions: from soft formations in the deepwater Gulf of Mexico and West Africa to hard rock drilling in Vietnam and Italy to troublesome, interbedded formations in the North Sea and Middle East.

The rotary steerable system has drilled millions of feet of complex 3D designer and multilateral wells, in addition to the largest number of record-breaking extended-reach wells in the industry. 

The AutoTrak G3 system can be integrated with our ZoneTrak™ G near-bit gamma service and/or ZoneTrak™ R at-bit resistivity service to reduce drilling risks when looking for specific geological targets. With this configuration, the ZoneTrak sensors are a few feet from the bit for earlier identification of the zones of interest.
