Halliburton introduced Cerebro Force in-bit sensors, a first-of-its-kind technology that captures weight, torque and bending measurements directly from the bit to improve understanding of downhole environments, optimize bit design and increase drilling efficiency. Built on Halliburton’s successful in-bit vibration sensing platform, Cerebro Force utilizes downhole data to reduce or eliminate surface measurement uncertainty and inefficiencies caused by bit design, bottomhole assembly and drilling parameter selection.
Smith Bits, a Schlumberger company has introduced a new technology that will enhance the quality and efficiency of the bits. Aegis armor cladding of Smith Bits will improve bit's body design and erosion resistance. It will also increase rate of penetration and bit durability for longer runs. “Our new armor cladding technology combines innovative materials science with an electron-beam additive manufacturing process”, said Schlumberger's President of Bits & Drilling Tools.
Halliburton announced the release of Stega efficient layout design, an advanced drill bit which overcomes the limitations of traditional bits, increased heat and wear and poor bit cleaning. This advanced bit offers offset back-up cutters placed 180 degrees or more from the primary cutter. It will help maximizing drilling efficiency for targeted applications.
