HOUSTON– Baker Hughes has unveiled the SureTrak steerable drilling liner service, which is designed to drill and evaluate complex, 3D wells while simultaneously installing a liner.

The SureTrak service uses proven rotary steerable drilling and liner-drilling technologies, including the Baker Hughes AutoTrak rotary steerable system and modular logging-while-drilling and measurement-while-drilling systems, to drill, evaluate and install a liner to total depth in one run.

Baker Hughes says the service was developed to address operational challenges such as narrow drilling margins, borehole collapse, and lost circulation safely and economically. The company says the service enhances wellbore integrity and minimizes formation damage, and does not require any special rig equipment.
