Drilling with Casing

Increase efficiency and mitigate drilling hazards with simultaneous drilling and casing

Simultaneous drilling and casing operations accelerate well construction, reduce risk exposure, and mitigate potential hazards. Using our drilling-with-casing (DwC) or drilling-with-liner (DwL) systems, you can drill, ream, run, set, and cement your casing or liners in a single trip. Our DwC systems are compatible with our OverDrive casing-running and drilling system for added benefits.

Drill in any environment to the planned depth

Casing Drill Bits

Our unique Defyer® bit series provides custom solutions for DwC operations in virtually all conditions. With temperature ratings up to 400°F (204°C), the bits enable casing drilling across soft, medium and hard rock formations. And, they can be drilled out with the planned BHA, which eliminates the need for dedicated drillout trips.

The bit design includes a selectable blade count and configurable cutter size to suit your formation type and application. Mounted on the face of the tool, the polycrystalline-diamond-compact cutters maximize drilling efficiency and durability.

Drill in any direction to TD using a retrievable BHA

Directional Drilling With Casing

Our dDwC™ directional drilling-with-casing system enables retrieving your bottomhole assembly (BHA) to replace damaged or worn components or to recover advanced systems—without pulling the entire casing string.

Further enhance drilling and casing performance

Drilling with Casing Accessories

We offer various enhancements—including our rubber-lined DwC centralizer, torque ring, and float collar—to complement our DwC and DwL services. 

Our rubber-lined DwC centralizer provides superior performance and extreme durability throughout the casing-drilling operation. The lightweight centralizer makes installation simple, reduces friction and casing wear, and optimizes fluid bypass. Our easy-to-install torque ring substantially increases the torque rating of buttress, STC, or LTC connections. Our field-proven float collar offers both backpressure capability and drillability.
