Kymera XTreme Hybrid Drill Bit

Reduce drilling costs with faster, more durable performance

The Kymera™ XTreme (XT) hybrid drill bit combines advanced engineering, customized application guidelines and the industry’s most advanced hybrid bit designs to deliver better drilling runs through carbonates and interbedded formations than were ever possible before.

The bit’s roller cones and blades are engineered not only to perform their individual functions, but to complement and enhance each other, helping define a new benchmark in drill bit performance. Cutting structures are sharper and more densely distributed, and blade and cutter designs are optimized to deliver longer, in-gauge hole sections. Because the dynamics of the roller cones and blades are optimally balanced, the Kymera XT bit is significantly more durable, drilling further with higher ROP, lowering drilling costs.
