PowerDrive Orbit* RSS is part of the PowerDrive* RSS family of fully rotating steerable systems that minimize the risk of sticking. The entire family has a complete direction and inclination sensor package close to the bit for precise well placement, and can generate its own power for 3D steering and control.
In any drilling environment, the PowerDrive RSS family delivers the power required to place wells accurately with superior borehole quality while ensuring maximum drilling efficiency.
The PowerDrive Orbit RSS is highly versatile, tough, and reliable in any operation. It cuts down on drilling time and increases efficiency with its ability to steer at high surface rpm. Its pad is designed to handle aggressive drilling fluids and severe downhole conditions. With dual downlink options, including the QuikDownlink* continuous-circulation downlink service, it can take commands from surface in any rig type, enables real-time decision making, and provides trajectory control unseen anywhere else.
The PowerDrive Orbit RSS has enhanced durability for severe downhole conditions, reducing operating days. It is extra reliable in tough operations where stick/slip, severe shock and torque, and complex hydraulic systems are a risk.
Supporting up to 350 rpm, the PowerDrive Orbit RSS delivers higher ROP and helps to minimize stick/slip. It provides six-axis continuous survey measurements that, together with automated downhole closed loops—optimize outcomes for well placement, trajectory control, and smoother boreholes. PowerDrive Orbit RSS minimizes dogleg severity in laterals, enables automated control, and drives consistency in drilling operations with minimal surface issues. Its gamma ray measurement helps identify zones of interest early on in the process.
