Direct XCD Drillable Alloy Casing Bit

Construct vertical wells while casing in one run

The Direct XCD drillable alloy casing bit is specially designed for drilling vertical or tangential wells to TD in one run. This PDC bit drills on standard casing that is rotated at the surface.

Eliminates dedicated drillout runs

The bit’s sub is composed of durable oilfield-grade steel, and its body is a copper bronze alloy. This unique composition allows it to be drilled out by any standard PDC bit after the Direct XCD casing bit has drilled to TD and the casing has been cemented. After drillout, the drillout PDC bit can continue drilling the next interval, eliminating the need for a dedicated drillout run.

LUKOIL Reduces Section Construction Time by 80% with Direct XCD Drillable Alloy Casing Bit

Advanced bit design enables operator to land 9 5/8-in casing to TD in 4 days compared with 20 days in previous well. Read case study
