Ulterra’s “U-Technology” brand represents our commitment to be a top performer in every field we operate. We achieve this performance by focusing our applications engineering teams on a district level to insure continuity of local knowledge and decrease the time it takes to bring a solution to the field.
A patent pending PDC bit technology which utilizes a unique cutter configuration to lower bit reactive torque and vibration, dramatically improving drilling efficiency. Unlike traditional PDC bits, the cutters of this step-change advancement work together to lower lateral vibration and increase crack propagation. The CounterForce cutting structure is engineered to slice through rock while maintaining a more consistent torque signature thus increasing stability and ROP.
- Reduced torque and vibration
- Improved drilling efficiency
- Improved directional performance
- Higher ROP
FastBack’s unique shape gets the blade out of the way and the cutters deep into formation. Instead of limiting PDC bits by the weaknesses of the materials, FastBack strategically aligns their strengths, each component enhances the others. The body material maximizes strength without restricting the cutting action or evacuation. Advanced surface coatings provide maximum erosion control without sacrificing strength. Hydraulic pathways have ultimate flexibility to enable extreme ROP. All of which converge on driving all available drilling energy into premium diamond cutters application optimized through Ulterra’s industry-leading LightSpeed™ cutter testing program. The result—another stepchange in Ulterra’s front-running reliability and ROP.
- Energy focused on the cutters drills faster with lower WOB
