Camino Natural Resources recently partnered with Phoenix Technology Services and our team to drill their fastest curve section of all time. Utilizing Ulterra’s 8.75” SPL613, the 992 ft. curve was drilled in just 12 hours – achieving a remarkable ROP of 83 ft/hr. This run was equipped with Split Blade® technology, a first-class Cactus Drilling Co rig, and directional services provided by Phoenix.
About Split Blade® Technology
Ulterra’s patented Split Blade technology is the first PDC bit technology aimed at improving cuttings evacuation while simultaneously raising the ceiling on your maximum ROP capability. By separating primary hydraulic flow into dual channels per primary blade, Split Blade technology keeps the cone and shoulder of the bit equally cooled and well cleaned to unleash maximum drilling performance.
