PowerDrive Archer High Build Rate Rotary Steerable System

Unique hybrid design for greater precision and ROP

The PowerDrive Archer RSS delivers complex 3D well profiles while maintaining high ROP and wellbore quality. It minimizes well profile restriction and optimizes attack angle in troublesome formations. The system enables operators to maximize reservoir exposure, increasing hydrocarbon production potential. Increased DLS capability gives control in unconsolidated formations.

Flat time elimination for drilling on plan

Additional advantages of the PowerDrive Archer RSS include the ability to drill complex curves and trajectories and perform openhole sidetracks at any point without requiring a trip out of the hole. It can kick off deeper and land early in the reservoir, maximizing ROP for optimal performance in the vertical section and reducing risk of mechanical sticking while improving wellbore quality. Fast, reliable directional openhole sidetracks can be completed to reduce time spent drilling multilateral wells and enable wells to be placed exactly where required.

Wellbore quality assurance for ease of completion

The PowerDrive Archer RSS produces smooth, high-quality wellbores, reducing stick/slip, torque, and drag as well as making it easier to run casing and wireline logs for trouble-free well completions. Its moving components are internal; its internal pads push against an articulated sleeve pivoted on a universal joint to offset the steering unit from the tools’ axis. This creates a hybrid effect that drives the bit, delivering well profiles previously only possible with motors.
