Rotary drill bit from Schlumberger Limited

To optimize performance, Lyng Drilling offers rotary steerable gauge design for individual drill bits. Since drill bits used with the PowerDrive rotary steerable system (RSS) are laterally responsive for generation of the required doglegs, Lyng ensures they have active gauges, which are critical for effective side-cutting.

An active gauge bit consists of cutters on the leading edge of the gauge pads and a passive pad trailing the cutters. The side-cutting potential of the bit can be adjusted by changing the length, width, and level, relative to the cutting edge of the passive pad.
