Dura Drilling


High Speed Dual String Drilling System

Cost: $3007k USD

The following proposal rose from the April Members' Meeting in Abu Dhabi.
Dura Drilling propose to develop a High Speed Dual String (HSDS) drilling system. It is a new Casing while Drilling system that can scale from very large to very small holes. HSDS is different from conventional drilling in its mechanics but similar enough that many existing technologies (well control, mud processing) can be adapted for HSDS.

Technology benefits:

  • The difference in mechanics allows HSDS to offer a solution where conventional drilling is not cost effective e.g. small diameter drilling, extended reach laterals and hard rock drilling. 
  • Possible future applications may include sensor placement, remote exploration drilling, and shallow offshore applications. This project aims to improve the TRL of the technology in all three applications.
