Ridged diamond element bit and RSS combo proposed
AxeBlade bits have high impact durability, achieving deeper penetration and higher instantaneous ROP than conventional bits. The diamond table on the element ridge is 70% thicker than that of a conventional cutter, increasing frontal impact resistance. PowerDrive Xceed RSS provides strength and agility in challenging environments.
Operator achieves fastest lateral in field
In the first well, the combination achieved an ROP of 63.7 m/h. For the second well, the operator wanted to achieve a higher ROP. In this well, the operator drilled out the float collar of casing, completed a formation integrity test, and drilled 1,895 m in one run totaling 23.2 h. The combination drilled 870 m at an ROP of 81.7 m/h, achieving a real ROP
145% higher than the planned ROP. The bit had low wear, and the run set a record for fastest horizontal section in the field with the largest number of meters drilled per day.
