When Every Run Counts

Headquartered in Fort Worth, Texas, Ulterra is the fastest growing drill bit manufacturer in the Oil and Gas industry. We’ve been the PDC bit market share leader in North America since 2016. This leadership position is the result of our ability to rapidly develop new technology that advances oilfield productivity. Ulterra helps operators adapt quickly to changing drilling dynamics with the industry’s most innovative bit designs. With manufacturing and service facilities located worldwide, we have a global network of capability that supports production almost anywhere.

Ulterra began with a vision of rapid innovation in bit design, ultra-responsive manufacturing capability and superior support for our customers. As a company whose business is laser-focused on drilling performance, we are dedicated to maximizing the efficiency of oil and gas drilling operations through the use of groundbreaking drill bits and application-specific technologies.

Letter From The president

Ulterra has been the company that not only understands the needs of customers but makes the tremendous strides to overcome any performance challenges they come across in today’s drilling operations. Capital efficiency and drilling efficiency are the focus for all our E&P customers. Making sure they remain competitive with advanced PDC technology is what makes Ulterra a true market leader. In this constantly changing industry, we strive to create real solutions for our customers while empowering our employees to make this all possible.

It’s become increasingly important for us to realize efficiencies, help operators drill faster, and bring new products to the oilfield. The most recent industry downturn provided our company the opportunity to demonstrate not only how our approach is different, but also how it is better. When our legacy competitors were dealing with halted production, old inventory, and outdated technology, Ulterra was still innovating and introducing new technologies when it was needed.

Moving forward, we plan to do more of the same, but even better and faster. We will keep investing in our people and technology to meet growing demands, while maintaining a company culture that will continue to lead us to even more industry breakthroughs. As we evolve to suit the needs of the industry, we will remain constant in our efforts to be persistently thinking forward and challenging limits.

John Clunan

Educating Youth about our Oil & Gas Industry

Starting out as a single child’s picture book to help teach our employees’ children about what Mom or Dad do for a living, our lovable Benny the Bit has taken on a career of his own. Through a series of children’s books, Benny serves to teach younger generations about the Oil and Gas industry. His exciting stories, big heart and body made of “teal steel” engage and entertain oilfield families throughout the world.

You can follow Benny on his numerous drilling adventures on Facebook and see where he “pops up” on Instagram. Suitable for all ages!
