• Drilling Performance

    NOV Wellbore Technologies is optimizing components downhole to provide instant feedback and maximum performance in well after well.

    In every application, we’re partnering with operators to build complete and fully optimized drill strings comprised solely of NOV tools. Optimization projects such as these have enabled you to drill faster.

    Using our proprietary BHA software, we were able to suggest the optimal drilling components for a complete BHA that doubled an operator’s rate of penetration (ROP) over the course of four wells. That same project reduced the average number of bits per well to four — previous wells required as many as 22 — which saved money and time.

    Our real-time monitoring helped a major operator improve on-bottom drilling performance and reduce the number of days drilled. The project had a target of approximately 14 days per well, but we helped them reach total depth in seven days on average.

    Our high-speed Wired Drill pipe telemetry network enables critical downhole data to be transmitted faster, reducing telemetry related time and eliminating performance limiters. Across an 8-well drilling campaign, these capabilities reduced drilling time by over 35 days in total. These well time savings apply to any wells where downhole data is required, including all directional or horizontal wells.

    We design, engineer, manufacture, and support every one of our tools, and the experience and expertise of our people drives our continuous improvement and purposeful innovation.
