PowerDrive X6 Rotary Steerable System

Overview Library

Maximized recovery and reliability

The PowerDrive X6 RSS maximizes each well’s productive potential, putting wells in the best place in less time. Because it delivers smoother wellbores, postdrilling operations such as running casing and wireline logging are simplified.

Higher efficiency and greater accuracy than motors

In applications where RSSs were not previously viable, a fully rotating steering system is now available with the PowerDrive X6 RSS. It delivers 3D well profiles and drills high-angle wells more efficiently compared with positive displacement motors. Near-bit measurements, available in real time, ensure accurate, productive drilling and wellbore placement.

Increased confidence from full directional control

The PowerDrive X6 RSS is designed for full directional control while rotating the drillstring. Efficient downlink systems and automatic inclination hold provide a smooth tangent section and improve true vertical depth accuracy in the horizontal section—critical for maximizing recoverable reserves and the well’s production potential. A triaxial sensor package facilitates fast, responsive directional control in either automatic or manual operation mode. Optional near-bit azimuthal gamma ray sensor enables fast response to formation changes.
