Intelligent RSS provides up to 18°/100 ft dogleg capabilities

Operators’ need to efficiently and reliably drill longer laterals faster is pushing equipment manufacturers to develop new rotary steerable systems (RSS) that can steer accurately through high-angle wellbores in one run and achieve target depth on time and on budget. Halliburton recently launched the iCruise RSS, which can provide up to 400 RPM and up to 18°/100 ft dogleg capabilities. At the 2018 SPE Annual Technical Conference & Exhibition, held 24-26 September in Dallas, Texas, DC Editor/Publisher Mike Killalea spoke with Paul Bond, Product Manager for RSS, about what Halliburton is calling an intelligent RSS, which has already been deployed in multiple basins around the world, including North America and the Middle East.
