Recently in Howard County, Texas, an operator partnered with Dixon Directional, Patterson-UTI Drilling, and our team to drill their fastest well yet. Utilizing three Ulterra bits, including an 11″ RPS616, a 7.875″ SPL613, and a 7.875″ RPS616, the crew on Patterson-UTI drilled 18,822 ft. in just 8.64 days from NU to RR.
Achieving a new operator footage per day record, the team drilled an average of 2,306 ft. per day — reaching target in the Wolfcamp A formation in record-time.
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.
About RipSaw® Technologies
The recently patented RipSaw technology is aimed at breaking through difficult changes in formation and abrupt drilling conditions. Ripsaw drill bits incorporate depth of cut limitation into the cutting design itself to limit the effects of changing conditions while the bit is actively drilling. The result is a bit that protects from damage without limiting high end performance capabilities.
