Description

No elements within the directional drilling BHA have changed faster over the years than the mud motor and drill bits. Motor power sections and lower ends have steadily become more powerful. Bits can literally change from well to well. But how often are the design characteristics of each taken into consideration when they are chosen for a particular application?

Join us at the IADD Optimizing Performance by Matching Bit and Motor Components Mini Forum, where we will explore the considerations taken for each type of equipment and how they can be more closely matched. You will hear from various panelist and presenters as we discuss the challenges of matching drill bits with other BHA components, when to determine when to proceed with a specific BHA design, etc., especially in today’s environments of low-cost, fast drilling.
