Directional Drilling Surveys - ERD, Rotary Steerable Systems | Schlumberger

Directional Drilling Services

Trajectory control in directional drilling

Schlumberger offers expert directional drillers and proven technologies to provide the trajectory control needed to drill the well correctly, the high-quality hole required to successfully run and cement casing, and the precise well placement to optimize production and maximize recovery—all leading to drilling optimization for optimal efficiency and cost savings. Schlumberger LWD and MWD services deliver high-quality data to enable time-critical decisions for accurate drilling of extended-reach, horizontal, vertical, and complex directional wells and sidetracks.

Rotary Steerable Systems

RSS offerings for maximum directional control.

PowerDrive rotary steerable systems

PowerDrive RSSs take on every drilling application, from conventional to ultraHT and verticals to ultraERD. Full rotational capability, onboard power generation, measurements close to the bit, and nine different service options provide fast and robust tools to power up positive well outcomes, so you hit your target, drill cost effectively, and reduce NPT.

With the most experience on the market, the PowerDrive RSS family has drilled over 1,250 million feet.

Minimize the expense of each barrel produced

Full rotation means PowerDrive RSSs drill faster and pull out of hole faster, reducing 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 thread the needle, even in those narrow sweet spots. The result is an easy-to-complete wellbore that minimizes construction time and expense within the pay zone.
