  • Formation


In April of 2017, NuVista Energy drilled 1,849m using Pacesetter’s Rotary Steerable System in the Wapiti / Elmworth field, making it their longest Montney RSS run to date.

With NuVista’s continued support, Pacesetter modified the Orbit RSS allowing for consistent improved durability and drilling performance for NuVista’s Montney Drilling Program.

Pacesetter would like to congratulate and thank NuVista and the crews of Nabors 78 for this great achievement.
