Drilling Shale Plays

Ensure maximum drilling efficiency

Reducing time to drill to TD is a key factor in improving drilling efficiency. ROP, reduced trips, build angle, lateral length, drilling fluids, and hole quality all play a role in improving drilling efficiency and economics. From fluid systems to the BHA, Schlumberger has the most complete drilling technology offering in the industry.
