Pacesetter’s Orbit RSS and Acoustic Sub Technology Drills Successful Charlie Lake Well for NuVista Energy

In September, NuVista Energy drilled a Charlie Lake well utilizing Pacesetter’s Orbit RSS with Acoustic sub technology providing Inc at Bit technology to drill the lateral leg in one run.

Pacesetter’s Orbit RSS performed exceptionally well with Acoustic sub technology allowing NuVista to make inclination changes to stay within this tight zone of interest.

Congratulations to NuVista Energy Ltd. and the crew of Horizon 45 for completing this well.
