Drilling: Conventional vs. RSS Drilling

Rotary Steerable Systems (RSS) have been in use for drilling since the late 1990s. Initially used only on expensive wells or special situations due to their high cost, they are now commonly used on even simple land development wells. Some in the industry believe RSS could replace conventional drilling systems.
John Willis, Chief of Drilling for Occidental Oil & Gas Corporation, will review Occidental Oil & Gas Corporation’s experience using RSS and other kick-off and steerable systems on land drilling operations, comparing and contrasting results, and the value between RSS and other methods in Oxy’s operations.
