Halliburton has released the Geometrix 4D shaped cutters, a line of four distinct geometric profiles to help improve cutting efficiency and increase control to reduce drilling costs. 

“The launch of Geometrix cutters demonstrates our ability to collaborate with customers and translate knowledge into solutions that can help lower drilling costs,” said Scott Regimbald, vice president of the Halliburton Drill Bits and Services business. “Each cutter is tailored for specific applications so operators now have the most complete portfolio to meet their drilling challenges.”

In a recent offshore job in Mexico where an operator was drilling a limestone-shale formation, the Geometrix bit doubled the rate of penetration over a 700m section saving the operator three days of drilling time compared to offset wells.
