Rotary Steerable System
PowerDrive Orbit* RSS is part of the PowerDrive* RSS family of fully rotating steerable systems that minimize the risk of sticking. The entire family has a complete direction and inclination sensor package close to the bit for precise well placement and independently generates power for 3D steering and control.
In any drilling environment, the PowerDrive RSS family delivers the power required to place wells accurately with superior borehole quality while ensuring maximum drilling efficiency.
Toughness and versatility to take on any environment
The PowerDrive Orbit RSS is highly versatile, tough, and reliable in any global operational environment. It cuts drilling time and increases efficiency with its ability to steer at high surface rpm. An innovative pad design features metal-to-metal sealing to handle aggressive drilling fluids and severe downhole conditions. With dual downlink options, including the QuikDownlink* continuous-circulation downlink service, it fulfills all commands from surface in any rig type, enables real-time decision making, and provides excellent trajectory control.
The PowerDrive Orbit RSS has enhanced durability for severe downhole conditions. It can drill from shoe to TD in a single run, reducing operating days. It provides extra reliability in complex operations where stick/slip, severe shock and torque, and complex hydraulic systems are significant risks.
Performance drilling with enhanced trajectory control
Supporting up to 350 rpm, the PowerDrive Orbit RSS delivers higher ROP and helps to minimize stick/slip. It provides six-axis continuous survey measurements that, together with automated down hole closed loops that include hold inclination and azimuth mode, optimize outcomes for well placement, trajectory control, and smoother boreholes. PowerDrive Orbit RSS minimizes dogleg severity in laterals, enables automated control, and drives consistency in drilling operations with minimal surface intervention. Early identification of zones of interest are provided by its extended gamma ray measurement.
