DALLAS – Halliburton Co. has released the iCruise intelligent rotary steerable system (RSS).

The new system is said to deliver faster drilling, accurate steering and longer laterals.

It provides 400 RPM and up to 18° /100 ft dogleg capabilities to drill fast and with greater accuracy.

The iCruise modular design can be configured to drill a long lateral or to increase accuracy in formations where well trajectory changes rapidly. Steerability and cutting efficiency can be further improved, the company said, by matching its new GeoTech drill bit with the new RSS.

“Halliburton has engineered a rotary steerable system that incorporates advanced sensors and electronics, sophisticated algorithms and high-speed processors to help operators place wells more accurately, reduce well time and maximize asset value,” said Lamar Duhon, vice president of Sperry Drilling. “The system can also guide decisions around drilling parameters, vibration mitigation and maintenance to improve reliability.”
