Together, these technologies were able to drill more than 3,000 ft [914 m] in the first 24 h of the operation and complete the whole lateral (approximately 7,000 ft [2,134 m]) in just 1.79 days. The PowerDrive Orbit RSS held the trajectory within the specified target while drilling at more than 500-ft/h [152-m/h] ROP without compromising directional control.
