Redesigned RSS improves reliability, saves operator 9 days

In a recent Latin American project, an operator was able to overcome challenges related to shock and vibrations by deploying a redesigned rotary steerable system (RSS). The PowerDrive Orbit RSS, which Schlumberger launched this week at the 2014 IADC/SPE Drilling Conference in Fort Worth, Texas, features a new pad design with metal-to-metal sealing. Gokhan Yarim, VP, Marketing & Technique, Drilling and Measurements for Schlumberger, describes the new features and how the RSS helped the operator to double the rate of penetration and save approximately nine days.

More about the Latin America field application will be available in the March/April issue of Drilling Contractor.
