Rotary Steerable Systems

Maximize production and reduce economic risk with precise steering control

Baker Hughes rotary steerable systems (RSS) offer precise steering control that maximizes reservoir contact for increased production. Our technology reduces the uncertainty of drilling away from the target, which minimizes economic risk, ensuring your well is on schedule, on budget. 

From drilling vertical wells in deviation-prone applications to successfully drilling complex 3D and extended-reach wellbores, we understand your drilling program requirements. Our suite of rotary steerable systems, application engineering expertise, and prewell planning services consistently and accurately meet your directional objectives while eliminating NPT associated with additional correction runs.

We combine precision steering systems with modular motors, near-bit sensors, LWD, and telemetry solutions for answers while drilling. Collaborating with your team, we’ll make better reservoir navigation decisions—based on real-time formation evaluation—that result in hydrocarbon recovery exceeding your expectations.

AutoTrak eXact Rotary Steerable Drilling System

The AutoTrak™ eXact™ rotary steerable drilling system combines high-BUR drilling with the collection of LWD data to help operators maximize production and minimize risk.


AutoTrak Curve Rotary Steerable System

The AutoTrak™ Curve rotary steerable system provides fewer days on well, exact wellbore placement, and faster landing drilling in unconventional plays.


AutoTrak G3 Rotary Steerable System

Our rotary steerable drilling system allows you to navigate precisely into the target using superior directional control in the most challenging well profiles.


AutoTrak X-treme Rotary Steerable System

Our rotary steerable drilling system integrates a precontoured, high-power X-treme mud motor into the AutoTrak rotary steerable BHA for additional power and RPM at the bit.


AutoTrak eXpress Rotary Steerable System

Reduce drilling time using cost-effective technology that offers the same precise, accurate performance as our other AutoTrak systems.


AutoTrak V Rotary Steerable System

Our vertical rotary steerable system saves you money by eliminating correction runs often required with motors. Maintain a vertical wellbore with minimal surface setup.


When you’re spending $350 per minute on a $500,000-per-day deepwater rig, you can be confident our global expertise enables you to work safer with minimized NPT.
