Maximize reservoir exposure and reach your preferred target

We help you to safely drill from one casing point to the next in the shortest possible time. Using a suite of technologies that include rotary-steerable systems, logging-while-drilling services, surface logging systems, and borehole-enlargement technologies, we combine real-time formation analysis with innovative drilling tools to maximize drilling efficiency in any environment.

Logging While Drilling

Characterize the subsurface environment while drilling

Our LWD systems deliver high-quality reservoir-characterization data. Working in standard to extreme drilling environments, our technologies deliver real-time petrophysical, geosteering, imaging, geophysical, and geomechanical data.

Measurement While Drilling

Achieve accurate directional surveys in any drilling environment

Our measurement-while-drilling (MWD) systems leverage several proprietary telemetry methods to reliably transmit data to surface, even in wells subject to heavy vibration, high-lost-circulation-material content, high flow rates, and high doglegs.

Rotary-Steerable Systems

Drill smooth, precise wellbores

Featuring the world’s first 16° build-rate tool, Revolution® rotary-steerable systems produce smooth, ready-to-case wellbores. With continuous near-bit measurement and bidirectional downhole communication, you can make informed, real-time drilling decisions.

Directional Drilling

Maximize power output for optimal bit performance

We leverage 30 years of drilling experience to combine the right torque, speed, and flow capabilities in our positive-displacement mud motors.

Borehole Enlargement

Enhance borehole enlargement and wellbore cleanup in a single run

Optionally equipped with radio-frequency identification (RFID) technology, our RipTide® drilling reamer and JetStream® circulation sub enhance drilling and reduce trips. The reamer works in combination with our ReamSync borehole performance system for ultimate performance.

Drilling with Casing

Increase efficiency and mitigate drilling hazards with simultaneous drilling and casing

Performing simultaneous drilling and casing- or liner-running operations can help you to accelerate well construction, reduce risk exposure, and mitigate potential hazards.
