Directional Casing While Drilling With RSS1 st Schlumberger Directional Casing while Drilling with RSS Jobin 2004We have used Directional Casing while Drilling with RSS on thefollowing wells.1 in Norway ( Offshore ) with exhaustive testing in CTF prior tojob3 in Qatar ( Offshore)1 in Indonesia ( Offshore )1 in Germany ( Offshore)3 in South Texas ( Land )5 in Colorado ( Land )1 In Wyoming ( Land )On the above listed wells we drilled multiple Hole Sections withDirectional Casing while Drilling with RSS.
Directional Casing While Drilling With RSSCasing Sizes and Footage Drilled with Schlumberger RSS10¾” -- 4,618 feet9 5/8” – 8,091 feet7 5/8” – 8,178 feet7” -- 43,517 feetTotal of 66,404’ Drilled using RSS92 % of above footage was Drilled Directionally
Directional Casing While Drilling With RSSRSS Tools UsedPower Drive X-5 – Push the Bit SystemPower Drive Xceed - Point the Bit System.We have used both systems depending on localconditions and accepted practices in the region wherethe work is located.We have drilled hole sizes ranging from 17 ½” x 12 ¼”down to 8 7/8 ”x 6 ½” in Directional Casing whileDrilling with RSS applications. We utilized RSSTechnology with TESCO Underreamers and Casingwhile Drilling tools.
Directional Casing While Drilling With RSSThe next step in Directional Casing while Drilling withRSS Technology is to go to a smaller casing size.We have seen a overwhelming acceptance ofDirectional Casing while Drilling with RSS in thesmaller hole sizes. For 7” Casing we have seen 500%more footage drilled than with the larger sizes ofcasing.We propose to use our Ultra Slim Hole Crossbow RSS todrill with 5 ½” Casing.
