300 degrees Celsius directional drilling system drilled deepest, hottest geothermal well in Iceland
An operator in Iceland wanted to harvest energy from an enhanced geothermal system (EGS) at supercritical well conditions. Next-generation drilling technology was needed to effectively build a well under the extreme environment with a measured depth of 5000 m and a static temperature of 550oC.
Baker Hughes developed a prototype metal-to-metal mud motor with a mud-lubricated bearing assembly and a titanium transmission. Engineers also developed a new roller cone bit with all-metal cone seals, all-metal bellow for grease pressure compensator, and a new grease that maintain lubricity at high temperatures.
