Ulterra’s Aron Deen and Ben Phillips discuss “how new drill bit technology designed for extreme durability and performance allows operators to increase ROP without sacrificing bit life” in Oilfield Technology’s July issue.
Featured in the June issue of Hart’s E&P, Ulterra discusses how new bit designs are pushing drilling boundaries. Over the past year, Ulterra has looked critically at bit design, blade geometry, cutter reinforcement and hydraulics and has been testing new materials, which has resulted in its XP™ line of polycrystalline diamond compact (PDC) bits. With the increased energy going through the bit, it is Ulterra’s goal to make sure the bits do not become the limiting factor in performance.
