The PowerDrive system is a rotary steerable system (RSS) that lets you optimize directional drilling. Full rotation reduces drag, improves ROP, decreases the risk of sticking, and achieves superior hole cleaning.
With this steerable drilling system, penetration rates are improved because there are no stationary components to create friction that reduces efficiency and anchors the BHA in the hole. Flow of drilled cuttings past the BHA is enhanced because annular bottlenecks are not created in the wellbore.
The RSS that delivers high build rate well profiles previously only possible with motors—yet with the ROP and wellbore quality of a fully rotating RSS.
Push-the-bit rotary steerable system tool for full directional control in harsh environments.
Get a superior degree of accuracy and reliability in harsh, rugged environments.
The vertical drilling system that drills from spud to TD while automatically keeping the well path vertical.
Additional torque capacity allows a higher weight on bit for increased ROP.
