$286,832 in savings

GunDRILL Reamer achieves significant cost savings by eliminating the need for a dedicated wiper run.

Rubicon designs, customizes and manufactures drilling and well construction products that reduce complexity, risk and help solve real-world challenges.

Our product lines: Drill Bits, Drilling Tools and TD Solutions™, focus on drill bit innovation, drilling enhancement and torque and drag solutions engineered to get you to total depth.

MAKING IT BETTER
Ecopetrol faced difficulty in reaching TD with poor borehole quality due to swelling,
tight spots and ledges, adding the high cost of a dedicated wiper run following the drilling phase of the well.

MAKING IT SIMPLE
Rubicon recommended placing the 8 3/8” Bi Directional GunDRILL Reamer in the drill string above the BHA in order to ream while drilling.

MAKING IT HAPPEN
The GunDRILL Reamer successfully removed the irregularities, eliminating the need for a separate costly wiper trip. Ecopetrol reached TD as planned, saving over 15 hours average rig time at a cost of $286,832.
