D-Tech Rotary Steerable recently completed their first back-to-back curves for an operator in Weld County, Colorado, successfully drilling an 8 1/2-in. hole with its RST675 tool.

On the first well, the D-Tech RST built up to 45 degrees in the tangent, completed the curve section [averaging 8.1 DLS while turning the well azimuthally 135 degrees before landing], and TDing the lateral in a toe-up design.

On the second well, the D-Tech RST built up to 45 degrees in the tangent, completed the curve [averaging 8.3 DLS while turning the well 110 degrees azimuthally], then continued into the lateral in a toe-up design; thus, completing the well in one run.

After optimizing the curve and lessons learned, the D-Tech RST was able to land the second curve 12 hours faster then the previous curve.
