Recently in the Haynesville Shale, a major operator partnered with our team to set a new operator 24-hour footage record! Utilizing Ulterra’s new 6.75″ U611S, the team drilled 2,434 ft. in a day. Compared to their previous footage record, this run drilled over 18% more feet within this timespan.

About FastBack™ Technology

Ulterra’s FastBack technology gets the blade out of the way to increase maximum ROP potential. By using superior materials and engineering principles, we can design the bit in a way that focuses more of the drilling energy on the PDC cutters themselves.
