An oil producer in the Permian Basin of west Texas, USA, contacted Baker Hughes, a GE company (BHGE), to help provide a solution that would reduce the amount of time spent in drilling curve and lateral hole sections. The wells in this area typically require a steerable motor with a high-adjustable kick-off (AKO) setting to achieve the build-up rate (BUR) necessary to drill the curve section. However, a high AKO setting can compromise the rate-of-penetration (ROP) in the lateral section.
