Conventional vs RSS
Pacesetter’s Orbit RSS drills more meters faster, reducing overall drilling days
Canadian Natural Resources Limited recently drilled two Cardium wells on the same pad; one with conventional tools and the other with Pacesetter’s Orbit RSS in the lateral. Both wells had 90 degree turns in their respective lateral sections.
By utilizing RSS, CNRL successfully drilled more meters in significantly less time. The RSS resulted in better ROP and also substantially reduced off bottom circulating time.
Congratulations to Canadian Natural Resources Limited and the rig crews of Ensign 419 on this impressive achievement.
