Volgaburmash, JSC’ Successful Matrix Bit Trial
Volgaburmash, JSC has successfully tested matrix bit 215,9 FD-266MН-AM369 in Yakutia, in Severo-Talakanskoe field of Surgutneftegas, JSC. The bit was run for drilling a directional well with downhole screw motor in 438-1356 m section. The total headway per bit made 921 m with average ROP of 21,4 m/h, which is comparable to similar bit performance of international manufacturers.
Development of 215,9 FD-266MН-AM369 bit design required advanced computer technologies that allow balancing impact load while drilling. As a result, vibration was substantially reduced and bit life increased. The bit is equipped with premium class improved wear-resistant cutters.
This bit will be further tested. In the near future, Volgaburmash, JSC will conduct regular testing of new matrix bit designs and standard sizes.
Volgaburmash and Uralburmash are Russia’s largest companies producing rock-cutting tools
