Extended Reach Drilling (ERD) is an established technique to economically access reserves from an existing infrastructure, reducing the need for additional drill centers and consequently reducing the drilling and facilities environmental footprint. Advancement of the ERD envelope is possible through detailed planning, technical design and operational excellence.


Challenges of ERD wells:

  • Geomechanics/Wellbore Stability
  • Excessive drag and torque limitations
  • Setting Completion at Planned Depth
  • Destructive drilling dynamics
  • Rig/equipment limitations


Rubicon offers a wide range of technologies and expertise to help maximize and extend the ERD envelope. Enabled through our advanced Applications Engineering teams and industry leading software, we provide our customers with a better understanding of the wellbore environment. Our technology portfolio combined with our team of experienced professionals help reduce risk, mitigate unplanned costs and improve overall performance.
