PowerDrive ICE UltraHT RSS

Overview Library

Maximize performance and production potential in ultraHT environments

The PowerDrive ICE ultraHT RSS operates durably at 200 degC [392 degF], bringing the benefit of a fully rotating RSS to HT and ultraHT reservoirs. Designed with proprietary ultraHT-rated electronics, the PowerDrive ICE RSS enables standard drilling practices in reservoirs with extreme downhole conditions.

Achieve high ROP by using RSS with ruggedized electronics

The PowerDrive ICE RSS increases ROP by eliminating the need for special operating procedures. Other drilling technologies typically require controlled drilling parameters and additional off-bottom circulation to protect the tool’s electronics boards from heat-related damage.

However, the ultraHT-rated multichip modules in the PowerDrive ICE RSS have been verified to 200 degC and 2,000,000 shocks for 1,458 days, providing consistent performance that saves rig time by maximizing ROP.

Improve production potential with precise directional control

Equipped with azimuthal gamma ray, this durable RSS provides precise directional control and automatic steering to help efficiently reach productive zones. The RSS also uses a pad actuation system designed with metal-to-metal seals for improved directional control in harsh drilling conditions caused by heat, corrosive drilling fluids, and challenging hydraulic designs.
