PowerDrive Orbit vorteX RSS Helps Drill Basin's Longest Single-Run 8.5-in Section

Combined technologies drill first extended-reach lateral for Eclipse Resources in the Utica Shale

The entire 18,752-ft lateral was completed in one run as planned, with total drilling time at 157.71 hours and with low tortuosity thanks to an HIA automated steering algorithm. The TelePacer MWD platform helped to keep in-zone percentage at 95% in the drilling target window and 100% in the geologic window.
