Drill-N-Ream:

Latest innovation to be added to DTI’s product offering, the Drill-N-Ream tool represents a significant advancement in reaming technology, conditioning the wellbore while drilling. This tool can effectively reduce or eliminate back reaming or reaming runs in both motor and RSS applications, reducing friction and torque, thus accelerating drilling rates and minimising wear on the drill string. The Drill-N-Ream is effective in both vertical and horizontal drilling scenarios, enhancing overall drilling performance.

Drilling Tools International is the authorised North American/Canadian distributer for Drill-N-Ream. To find out more about the Drill-N-Ream tool, click here.

Rotosteer:

The RotoSteer tool is positioned above an existing steerable BHA to drive the BHA independently from the drill string. Developing torque from drill string rotation, RotoSteer enables the continuous rotation of the drill string during all drilling operations. It eliminates the need for agitation tools while attaining the benefits of a rotary steerable in extended reach applications. RotoSteer utilises a steerable BHA with the addition of a specialised drilling motor-based device. This tool produces torque from drill string rotation which is used to counteract the torque generated from the drilling motor, allowing for continuous rotation while sliding. The RotoSteer in conjunction with the steerable BHA acts as a “Point the Bit” system and is a cost-effective option for drilling longer reach horizontal wells.

During drilling ahead operations (higher string rpm), RotoSteer allows the BHA to rotate in conjunction with the drill string. During sliding operations (lower drill string rpm), RotoSteer counteracts the drilling motor reactive torque, holding the BHA stationary with small changes in drill string RPM or WOB adjustments.
