New RSS delivers high build rates

Schlumberger recently introduced the new PowerDrive Archer high build rate rotary steerable (RSS) system that delivers high build rates in many formations from any inclination and in a single shoe-to-shoe run with no flat time for trips to change the bottomhole assembly. High build rates allow deep kickoffs to place more of the well bore in the reservoir, maximizing drainage capability. The PowerDrive Archer RSS delivers well profiles previously possible only with motors yet with the ROP and wellbore quality of a fully rotating RSS. The system does more than execute complex 3-D wells in one run – it also increases potential for hydrocarbon production.
