HOUSTON– Baker Hughes, a GE company has received two Spotlight Awards.

The first is for the TerrAdapt adaptive drill bit, which autonomously adjusts depth-of-cut (DOC) to mitigate stick/slip and expand the smooth drilling window with no surface interaction.

The second is for the DEEPFRAC multi-stage fracturing service. This leverages tools and techniques perfected in unconventional plays to improve the efficiency and economics of offshore completions. Using ball-activated sleeves and patented BeadScreen flowback control technology, the service simplifies operations, accelerates completion times, and enables rapid stimulation of 20+ stages in a single trip.

BHGE is exhibiting at booth #2827.
