PowerDrive Rotary Steerable Systems

Continuous rotation, smoother boreholes, and constant steering

PowerDrive RSS systems take on every drilling application, from conventional to ultraHT and verticals to Ultra ERD. Full rotational capability, onboard power generation, total fluid flexibility, and nine different configurations provide fast and robust tools to power up positive well outcomes, so you hit your target, minimize stick/slip, and reduce NPT.

A fully rotating steering system

Full rotation means PowerDrive RSS systems drill faster and enable quicker pulling out of hole to reduce time to production. They are engineered for rugged endurance in harsh applications, and combine reliable measurements and fast downlink configurations with nimble steering options. That means the PowerDrive RSS family delivers well placement so precise that drillers can <em>thread the needle</em>, even in those narrow sweet spots. The result is an easy-to-complete wellbore that minimizes construction time and expense within the pay zone.

PowerDrive Xcel RSS

Provides inertial directional control in deviated sections and senses stick/slip and shock and vibration on three axes to completely monitor downhole drilling for maximum drilling performance.

PowerDrive Orbit RSS
