Curve and lateral at-bit steerable system
The NeoSteer CL curve and lateral at-bit steerable system (ABSS) is specifically designed to enable drilling the curve and lateral in a faster single run where other methods require multiple trips. It achieves high build rates, increases on-bottom drilling speed, and extends lateral lengths. Especially where vertical, curve, and lateral sections are the same hole size, the NeoSteer CL ABSS not only reduces NPT by eliminating the need to change out the BHA for every section, it also lowers CO2 emissions.
The NeoSteer CL ABSS includes comprehensive six-axis continuous inclination and azimuth measurements. The multiaxial component enables automatic hold inclination and azimuth (HIA) measurements for precise well positioning. This feature, along with self-steering capabilities, helps provide smooth tangents with minimized tortuosity. Near-bit extended-range gamma ray measurements provide additional well positioning data for improved real-time decision making.
The NeoSteer CL ABSS can be configured with an onboard azimuthal image gamma ray cartridge to improve in-zone percentage and enable steering within the reservoir sweet spot. With an azimuthal gamma ray cartridge just 6 ft behind the cutting structure, the ABSS can identify signs of changing lithology earlier to enact instant steering corrections.
NeoSteer at-bit steerable systems are part of our transition technologies portfolio of solutions that address optimizing your drilling CO2 footprint.
