HOUSTON– Reelwell has received an OTC Spotlight Award the Reelwell Drilling Method Riserless (RDM-R) system.

The system enables drilling in 3,000 m (9,842 ft) water depth from third-generation drilling units due to the reduced weight related to omitting the riser. This is possible because the cuttings are transported to the surface inside the dual drillstring.
