Advances in powered rotary steerable systems result in record-breaking runs ///

Optimized drilling systems include not only matched drilling tools, but also the integration of technology, processes and people across all stages of the drilling process.1 This combination is important, as the industry looks to improvements to drilling programs to reduce nonproductive time (NPT); improve safety and efficiency; and optimize production. Fit-for-purpose bottomhole assemblies (BHAs), together with a wide array of advanced downhole drilling tools, have greatly improved drilling efficiency and allowed much-higher ROPs. Choosing the proper drilling system is critical for boosting the well construction process and pushing the drilling limit. Proper BHA design and modeling is critical to the drilling of a well, and contributes to the optimization of drilling efficiency.
