- Patented seal packages improve reliability for longer drilling hours downhole
- Aggressive cutting structures provide exceptional rate of penetration (ROP)
- Protective bit body armor increases bit life in carbonate drilling environments
Our Vanguard™ Arabia tricone drill bits drill longer distances in the Middle East’s less-abrasive, hard-carbonate formations. These tungsten carbide insert (TCI) drill bits have super-tough carbide grades that minimize breakage from impact damage.
Tricone bit performance can be additionally enhanced through the Drilling Application Review Team (DART™). The DART process, which combines advanced technology, data, and designs, provides individualized solutions to maximize field performance across multiple wells while reducing risk.
The results are a true collaboration, drawing on unique resources, including a comprehensive database that taps our rich history of continual drilling improvements. The process also includes a state-of-the-art drilling laboratory and a full-scale research rig and downhole simulator. This combination of unique resources in a fully collaborative environment permits us to create tricone drill bits and systems that optimize performance, minimize drilling and completion costs while reducing nonproductive time.
You can rely on the improved cutting structure and seal life for greater footage.
