The Kymera™ Mach 5 hybrid drill bit extends drilling lengths from typical curve sections to handle combination sections of the well—saving trips and replacing both roller cone and polycrystalline diamond compact (PDC) bit runs. The Kymera Mach 5 drill bit extends your performance, digging beyond the curve.
Drawing on our drill bit expertise, the Kymera Mach 5 hybrid design package features precision balanced blade count and cone optimization, resulting in a proven performance step-change.
- Increased blade counts improve lateral stability while making the bit more aggressive to stand up to wear and tear
- Recessed cutters increase diamond volume, which improves durability to keep the bit engaged and extend distance drilled
- Sharp, dense cone sets further allow improved rates of penetration (ROP)
- Cutter selection options include Dynamus™ extended-life drill bits, StayTrue™ shaped diamond element technology, and Stabilis™ dual-chamfer cutters specifically selected to handle increased loads of challenging drilling environments to improve drilling speed and efficiency.
