Slide-Drilling Guidance System Optimizes Directional Drilling Path
The amount of uncertainty related to directional drilling makes accurate drilling challenging, leaving much to human know-how and interpretation. Additionally, few path-planning methods in the literature consider the directional steering tool being used.
Resolving Torsional Vibration in Limestone Reservoirs Reduces Equipment Damage
This paper examines multiple factors that can affect the severity of stick/slip and measures their actual effect.
Rotary-Steerable System Concept Aims To Increase Efficiency, Reduce Costs
The advent of the rotary-steerable system (RSS) introduced an efficient way to drill both current and future wells. However, current tools still fail to replace positive displacement motors (PDMs).

Rotary-Steerable Tool Brings Cost-Effective Performance to High-Volume Drilling
A 100% fully mechanical rotary-steerable tool has been developed specifically for the high-volume drilling market, providing full 3D directional control while under full rotation of the drillstring from surface.
Torsional Dynamics and Point-the-Bit Rotary-Steerable Systems
This paper outlines two lesser-known types of torsional dynamics observed while drilling interbedded carbonate formations in the Middle East with the latest generation in point-the-bit rotary-steerable systems (RSSs).
