On a recent run in Vietnam, a major operator utilized Ulterra’s 8.5” CF616 to drill their 8.5” section in the Bach Ho Formation. Utilizing Ulterra’s CounterForce technology, the operator drilled 1,321 meters in 36.8 hours – averaging 35.9 m/hr to complete the section.
About CounterForce Technology
Downhole drilling vibration caused by bit and formation contact often damages PDC bits, leading to subpar drilling performance. With Ulterra’s CounterForce® technology, operators can significantly minimize vibration to increase drilling efficiency. Applying patented cutter orientations, the technology takes control of vibrational energy and directs those forces back at the formation. This means operators can improve toolface control, bit life, and dull condition while increasing ROP.
Advantages of using CounterForce Technology
- Delivers Higher ROP
- Reduces Bit Vibration
- Smooths Toolface Control
- Lowers Cost-Per-Foot
