Arctic Directory: Schlumberger introduces rotary steerable system

Schlumberger announced March 17 the release of its new PowerDrive VorteX RT, powered rotary steerable system with wireless communicator. The new modular system combines power, speed and accuracy in addition to totally flexible bottom-hole-assembly design, the company said.

“The ability to now communicate over a drilling motor power section enhances geosteering BHA capabilities and lets you place third-party hardware anywhere on the string,” said Ian Falconer, marketing manager, drilling and measurements, Schlumberger. “It it possible to fine-tune the borehole trajectory while drilling ahead at high speed. This maximizes drilling performance while directly reducing drilling costs.”

The new system allows near-bit information above and below BHA components, so accurate targets can be reached in less time.

Schlumberger is the world’s leading supplier of technology, integrated project management and information solutions to customers working in the oil and gas industry worldwide.
