New Technology for Improved Hole Condition


OMNI VDR in Development Wells

5” HWDP

5” HWDP

Jar

This Development well is the first in Malaysia to utilize the new


generation of drilling risk mitigation tools from OMNI

OMNI Versatile Drilling Reamer (VDR) was installed at top of BHA


5” HWDP replacing the conventional fixed blade stabilizer.

Carefully selected drilling parameters and revised drilling practices


. resulted in drilling this highly deviated well efficiently and with reduced
Crossover drilling risk. Drill pipe was pulled to surface on elevators and casing
was run smoothly according to plan.

• OMNI VDR with top PDC cutters
• Back reaming 1x before every connection while drilling
• Back reaming 2x before every connection at sections with
high torque while drilling
• OMNI VDR placed at top of BHA in case of mechanical

OMNI VDR equipped with Tungsten Carbide Inserts (TCI) on blade OD has
contributed to improved hole condition while drilling and tripping

OMNI VDR equipped with PDC cutters and placed near the top of BHA to
facilitate back reaming while drilling. This offered a valuable risk mitigation tool for
clearing obstructions while pulling out of hole
