Reducing rathole length while saving rig time
In a traditional reaming-while-drilling BHA the reamer is placed above the RSS and LWD tools, creating a long rathole and requiring an extra trip to enlarge the hole to TD. Challenged to design a tool to increase efficiency, Halliburton has responded with a solution that has the added benefits of optimized steerability and fluid flow, and reduced tool length based on the proven reliability of the NBR® reamer technology. The TDReam™ tool is Halliburton’s newest downhole innovation designed to significantly reduce rathole length and reach TD in one run.
