Record Septimus Well for CNRL

Pacesetter’s Orbit RSS eliminates entire BHA and saves tripping time

By utilizing Pacesetter’s Orbit Rotary Steerable System, Canadian Natural Resources Limited was able to eliminate an entire BHA and a trip, finishing the build and lateral sections in one run, resulting in substantial time saved and reduced AFE costs. CNRL successfully landed the well from 45deg to 90deg in 7 hours.

Pacesetter’s combined technologies of our modified Orbit RSS and XEM MWD drilled 2,839m in a single run, completing the well at 4,787m MD. This was a “pacesetter” Septimus well for CNRL.

Congratulations to CNRL and the rig crews of Ensign 60 for this impressive achievement.

Successful RSS Sidetrack

Grizzly Resources successfully drills an open hole sidetrack utilizing Pacesetter’s live at bit RSS BHA

Sidetracking with Pacesetter’s Orbit RSS configured in real time mode, Grizzly Resources saved substantial rig time on their most recent Valhalla well. Pacesetter’s live RSS BHA, in conjunction with proven XEM platform, had real time readings of inclination and gamma at bit, successfully drilling an open hole sidetrack in under 6 hours.

Communication, planning, and field level execution were key factors to the successful completion of this well.

Congratulations to Grizzly Resources Ltd. and the rig crews of PD 182 for this great accomplishment.

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.
