Revolution V

Contact

Maintains vertical stability in conventional and unconventional wells

Applications

  • Maintaining a vertical wellbore
  • Pad drilling

Features

  • The point-the-bit design improves hole quality, which makes cuttings removal more efficient and enables running casing and liner systems to bottom smoothly.
  • On-the-fly downlinking enables the tool to be reoriented from any azimuth or inclination deviation.
  • On-board sensors measure vibrations, whirl, and stick-slip, which enables operators to implement mitigation strategies in real time.
  • The pivot stabilizer is configured to better tolerate vertical-hole dynamics.
  • A motorized option is available for greater rate of penetration.
  • The Revolution V rotary steerable system (RSS) can be fully integrated with any Weatherford logging-while-drilling (LWD) system.

Benefits

  • Continuously monitors near-bit inclination in real time
  • Makes real-time corrections to a maintain vertical wellbore, which eliminates the need for additional runs
  • Enables precise vertical control, which reduces nonproductive rig time
  • Can be preconfigured at the surface to run in standalone mode

Tool Description

The Revolution V RSS enables cost-effective vertical rotary drilling by continuously and automatically adjusting inclination to maintain a vertical wellbore. The Revolution V RSS has a short, compact design that reduces the complexity of rotary-steerable drilling while placing critical LWD measurements close to the bit.

Available for use on nearly any rotary rig, the Revolution V RSS actively measures and corrects any deviation to maintain a vertical wellbore through the entire well profile. Weatherford wellsite directional drillers monitor wellbore survey information, but direct input is not required for automatic corrections.

The Revolution V RSS is available in multiple sizes to support drilling holes with diameters from 5-3/4 to 26 in. The 4 3/4-, 6 3/4-, and 8 1/4-in. tools are available with either standard stroke or reduced stroke (RS).
