New Technology

Short Radius RST

Target Well Control has acquired the design, know-how and prototype tools for a cost effective, short radius rotary steerable drilling system from Calgary-based Tesco Corporation. The acquisition has been accompanied by the transfer of a patent license from BP Corporation North America Inc. that allows Target to market this technology on a world-wide basis.

  • ‘Point-the-bit’ technology for high rates of curvature
  • Prototype tools built for 3-7/8", 4 ½" and 6" hole sections.
  • Ideally suited to short-radius curves (e.g. sidetracked laterals off an existing wellbore). Consistent curvature produced. 4 ½" hole drilled with radius of curvatures in the range of 30 ft to 97 ft produced (190° to 59°/100 ft). After building to horizontal the rotary steerable assembly is pulled out and a tangent assembly run.
  • More efficient than drilling conventionally with PDM’s. Time saved by removing problems relating to sliding and more aggressive PDC bits can be utilised.
