The Customer focused on drilling the 16” build up/ deviated section using one PDC bit run pairing the bit with rotary steerable system while achieving the best possible ROP and lowest cost per foot.
The TOP 4 achievement wells in the same field using PDC bit design achieving 115.1 ft/h ROP average across the field.
Record run in the area was set @ 118.7 ft/h.
VAREL proposed a specific PDC design leveraging the EVOS™ bit technology, perfectly designed for ‘build’ drilling applications. EVOS™ bit series is a trouble-free design delivering smooth torque, advanced directional control, excellent wellbore quality and dynamic stability.
Solution: 6-bladed, 16-mm cutting structure with steel body bit for optimum Open Face Volume. Shape cutters, the ARTIMIS™ cutters as part of the VES VENOM™ technology.
Purpose: ARTIMIS cutters increase efficiency of the shearing action through pre-weakening the rock.
New consistent field record achieved and time saving on the planned objective.
- Drilled a total footage of 5823ft with Field Record ROP of 130.9ft/hr.
- Achieved 14% increase in ROP as compared to TOP 4 Field Average performance.
