An operator in the Llanos Basin in the Akacias field recently partnered with our team in Colombia to drill their 8.5” curve section. In this application, the lithology consists of sandstone and siltstone and requires a drill bit that can withstand hard conditions to achieve target ROPs.
On their recent run of 547 ft., the operator was able to optimize their performance and increase net ROP by more than 50%. Utilizing Ulterra’s 8.5” U616M on rotary BHA, the run was drilled at an ROP of 75 ft/hr – setting the fastest performance on the pad.
