Rotary steerable system
Maintain tight directional control through the magnetic zone of exclusion and monitor stick/slip, shock, and vibration.
The PowerDrive Xceed RSS provides strength and agility in challenging, rugged, soft, or abrasive environments and drills extended-reach wells within rig pressure limits. Engineered for trajectory accuracy and reliability, its internal steering mechanism does not require pressure drop across the bit. It enables real-time well placement, keeping the wellbore in the target window.
The RSS is designed with field-proven electronics and has a wear-resistant, totally enclosed internal steering mechanism. Its steering response is minimally influenced by the wellbore and hole gauge and does not depend on wellbore contact, ensuring performance in abrasive, soft, and hard formations.
The PowerDrive Xceed RSS can predictably drill doglegs and sidetracks to put wells in the best place in the reservoir. Hold-the-line closed-loop downhole control automatically corrects inclination and azimuth if deviation occurs, achieving TD in less time.
Teamwork and fit-for-purpose technologies enabled completion of a well in 26 days without NPT or lost-time incidents.
AxeBlade bit combined with PowerDrive Xceed RSS increases ROP to 81.7 m/h.
Suite of Schlumberger technologies increases meters drilled per day by 29%, saving 6.7 drilling days per well.
Operator lowers drilling time and eliminates planned runs using EnduroBlade 360 bits, fit-for-purpose PowerDrive RSS units, and Rhino XC reamer.
Drill within rig pressure limits for ERD wells in soft or abrasive environments.
