An essential part of the drilling process is adding force to the drill bit in order to successfully break the rock. Weight on the Bit, or WOB, is the amount of downward force exerted on the drill bit provided by thick-walled tubular pieces in the drilling assembly that are known as drill collars. The downward force of gravity on these steel tubes provide force for the drill bit in order to effectively break the rock.
Ulterra Drilling Technologies has proudly launched SplitBlade™ as the new SPL product line. Ulterra’s objective is to bring attention and focus to all of their differentiating technologies and the value they create to customers. This nomenclature will help further cement Ulterra’s reputation as an industry leader in innovation, new technology, and performance in the field. Also, the nomenclature will help with the easy identification of advanced pdc bit technology.
We love the second chapter of this story and are proud to have played a part in MORE’s efforts to address the global water crisis. This story first appeared on the https://more-water.org site. It’s a great read from the perspective of an Ulterra PDC bit.

Ulterra Drilling Technologies continues to expand the application for its groundbreaking CounterForce® cutting structure technology. CounterForce uses the cutting structure to reduce vibrations at the bit, which increases efficiency and reduces bit damage. Reducing vibration is particularly important on wells which utilize Rotary Steerable Systems (RSS), which are becoming more popular as well planners are pushing the limits on directional difficulty and lateral lengths.
The API 7-1 Monogram is somewhat standard among major players in the industry, but Ulterra is very unique in that we include service (repair) in our API Q1 and ISO 9001 scope of registration, hence the reason you will now be seeing a “Certified Repair” sticker on the bit cans. The goal of these stickers is to highlight Ulterra’s commitment to having the highest quality PDC bits in the world.
Ulterra has released new statistics on the CounterForce™ and FastBack™ technology. After sorting through our data from the last 365 days there were over 20,000 Ulterra bit runs recorded. To learn more about our success with CounterForce and FastBack please read the article below.
FORT WORTH, Texas, Nov. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Ulterra announced today the availability of PDC bits incorporating the next generation FastBack technology.
Unlike traditional PDC bits, FastBack designed bits utilize a unique blade configuration that supports the cutters in a minimalist fashion. Its smaller profile eliminates wasted energy pushing a bit’s blade surface, focusing all energy on the diamond cutting surfaces. This efficiency improvement is already paying operators dividends where a Fastback bit drilled a Marcellus well 56.8% faster.
