Weatherford International has commercially released its Revolution rotary-steerable system (RSS). With advanced sensors and telemetry, the system gives operators a reliable method for drilling, from vertical to horizontal, in a single run. It allows operators to drill in HPHT zones with temperatures exceeding 300°F, allowing operators to produce wells in increasingly challenging environments. The system is equipped with drilling control in long laterals, high-angle curves and parallel vertical sections. The system’s point-the-bit design and real-time geological control enable operators to drill in unconventional fields, HPHT environments, deepwater fields, damaged and underbalanced formations, and brown fields.
