Rib-steered motor wins Intervention Technology Award

Posted on 19 June 2009

 The Intervention & Coiled Tubing Association (ICoTA) awarded Baker Hughes INTEQ its 2009 Intervention Technology Award for the rib-steered motor (RSM) for coil tubing directional drilling. It was presented at the SPE/ICoTA Coiled Tubing and Well Intervention Conference Exhibition in Houston in April.

The RSM combines the borehole construction capabilities of closed-loop rib-steering technology with the drilling performance of INTEQ’s X-treme pre-contoured motors. This combination results in minimized tortuosity in slimhole wellbores, extending the envelope of complex well geometries. The RSM allows for smooth, straight trajectories, eliminating the need for the undulating well paths typically associated with coiled tubing drilling. The resulting wellbores reduce drillstring drag and allow for optimal extended-reach capabilities and 3D steering.

Baker Atlas was a finalist for the award. The Baker Atlas Deployment Risk Management system and perforating flywheel assemblies were recognized for significantly improving wireline deployment in deviated wellbores.
