To get the most out of your assets, you need to get creative with well plans that employ vertical, curve, and lateral sections to maximize reservoir exposure. Because rig time is a huge factor in drilling economics, particularly in offshore and unconventional fields, you also need to execute these multifaceted wellbores efficiently and produce a well that is stable and ready to complete. Economically meeting today's drilling challenges requires reliable, versatile technology.
The Weatherford Revolution® rotary-steerable system (RSS) provides industry-leading capabilities for diverse directional drilling applications, including high-pressure/high-temperature (HPHT) and high-dogleg wells. Our point-the-bit technology delivers clean, accurately placed, and completion-ready wellbores. With an autopilot function that maintains your drilling parameters, plus the ability to make real-time adjustments, you can confidently steer from vertical to horizontal in a single run.
Reliably reach target depth with speed and control.
With a suite of technologies suited for different applications and hole sizes, the Revolution rotary-steerable system can enhance the efficiency of drilling operations in a variety of conditions. The precise point-the-bit design boosts rate of penetration (ROP) and creates a clean, in-gauge wellbore that is easy to complete.
The Revolution suite harnesses advanced technologies to improve performance in HTHP and high-dogleg applications.
The Revolution Heat features HTHP-optimized hydraulics for enhanced reliability in challenging fields, and the Revolution 16 can build curves at a rate of 16°/100 ft (30 m) to enable deeper kickoffs and greater reservoir exposure. For cost-sensitive operations, the Revolution SRT provides efficient directional drilling using an innovative technique to control bit speed through modulated mud flow.

We developed the proprietary technologies integrated into the Revolution suite at our state-of-the-art facility in Tewkesbury, England.
The facility reproduces extreme environmental conditions including temperature, pressure, vibration, torque, and—uniquely—backward whirl. As a result of our research on backward whirl, the Revolution rotary-steerable system includes real-time whirl sensors. Other on-board technologies include the TVM™ 2+ sensor, featuring our award-winning angular-rate gyroscope, which measures high-speed downhole rotation and helps to determine the type and severity of torsional vibration phenomena.
