CPEC Drills Record 9017m Well

Pacesetter’s Orbit RSS breaks Canadian records drilling 5,815m in a single run, leading to 9,017m MD TD

Using Pacesetter’s combined technology of XPACE Dual Telemetry MWD and our modified PowerDrive Orbit RSS with Acoustic Live Communication, CPEC drilled a record breaking 9,017m MD well.

The 5,815m lateral was completed in a single run, drilling for 94 hours with an average ROP of 61.9m/hr.

Congratulations to Crescent Point Energy Corp. and the rig crews of Ensign 148 for this incredible achievement!

Thank you to Pacesetter’s DD and MWD Supervisors Collin Maier, Gene Huber, James Slimmon, Kaylen Wiancko and Tim Adamyk for their dedicated work on this project.
