The Baker Hughes drilling systems address technology requirements for re-entry or slimhole projects. This includes coiled tubing (CT) and through-tubing rotary drilling applications.
These CT and re-entry drilling systems access new and/or previously bypassed pay zones economically, to maximize ultimate recovery, improve revenue, and extend field life.
For more than 10 years, we’ve specially designed bottom hole assemblies (BHAs) for re-entry and slimhole applications. The advanced BHA technology addresses the special challenges of these projects. Our solutions include:
- CoilTrak™ coiled-tubing BHA system for advanced CT re-entry applications
- Advanced slim measurement-while-drilling (MWD) system for through-tubing rotary drilling and standard slimhole drilling applications
Both modular systems deliver precise directional drilling, advanced MWD, and optional logging-while-drilling (LWD) capabilities to successfully support your special projects. Additional technology also improves the overall performance. Risk is reduced while setting whipstocks and during window-cutting by precise toolface control and depth correlation.
The wellbore placement within the reservoir is optimized by the provided formation evaluation data and the systems’ geosteering capability. The drilling efficiency and the wellbore control is increased by the downhole sensor information from the BHA.
