Adaptive Drill Bit May Help Ease Downhole Dysfunction

Posted April 03, 2017 12:00 AM by Engineering360 eNewsletter

The TerrAdapt bit, released by Baker Hughes in an effort to help operators address various drilling dysfunctions, uses self-adjusting depth-of-cut control elements.

Most of the drill rigs that will use a bit like this are run by a "pusher" who has been in the oil patch since they drilled with cable tool rigs. Convince them, and the bit will be a hit. You can't get any crap past them.
