Schlumberger - ICE UltraHT Drilling Services
Schlumberger has launch ed TeleScope ICE* ultrahigh-temperature measurements-while-drilling service and PowerDrive ICE* ultrahigh-temperature rotary steerable system (RSS). These new technologies enable standard drilling operations in reservoirs with extreme temperatures, expanding the applications and the range of the field-proven PowerDrive* RSS and Scope* measurement services.
“In high-pressure, high-temperature (HPHT) projects, customers are under intense pressure to manage costs and achieve drilling objectives. This is particularly challenging because HPHT environments can affect the reliability of conventional downhole equipment,” said Steve Kaufmann, president, Drilling & Measurements, Schlumberger. “Our new drilling services for ultrahigh-temperature wells help our customers eliminate runs, drill wells with precision and mitigate operational risks to make the undrillable wells possible.”
The PowerDrive ICE RSS is the only commercially available RSS rated to 200 degC (392 degF). Together with the TeleScope ICE MWD service, these technologies make up the industry’s first 200-degC bottomhole assembly (BHA).
