Interbedded limestone/sandstone/shale

Background
Field testing was performed on a Stingblade conical diamond element bit and a conventional PDC bit to verify drilling performance. Both bits were run in adjacent boreholes less than 50 ft apart, drilling vertically at identical depths and using the same rig, BHA, and operating parameters.

Excellent Drilling Stability and Efficiency Verified in Interbedded Vertical Application

Compared with PDC bit, conical diamond element bit produces fewer lateral and axial vibrations, Texas

Field testing was performed on a Stingblade conical diamond element bit and a conventional PDC bit to verify drilling performance. Both bits were run in adjacent boreholes less than 50 ft apart, drilling vertically at identical depths and using the same rig, BHA, and operating parameters.
