Schlumberger: Launches StrataBlade Concave Diamond Element Bit

Drill bit with unique concave-shaped cutting elements reduces drilling costs, improves overall drilling performance

Smith Bits, a Schlumberger company, introduced today the StrataBlade* concave diamond element bit that improves the rate of penetration (ROP) in a wide range of rock types, while withstanding impact damage often associated with drilling interbedded formations. “The StrataBlade bit is the latest addition to our three-dimensional cutting elements portfolio, which expands our holistic drilling solutions offering and enables operators to enhance overall drilling performance in challenging formations,” said Jesus Lamas, president, Well Construction, Schlumberger. “With the introduction of this new technology operators can improve ROP, increase overall drilling efficiency and reduce well construction costs.” The StrataBlade bit incorporates new geometry Strata* concave diamond elements across the bit face, which increases cutting efficiency and results in higher instantaneous ROP with the same operating parameters. In deep lateral wells where weight transfer to the bit is a challenge, the StrataBlade bit drills with higher ROP when compared with traditional PDC bits with flat cutters. Improved cutting efficiency also means a better torque response at the bit for conformance to directional plans.
