CONFINED COMPRESSIVE STRENGTH ANALYSIS CAN IMPROVE PDC BIT SELECTION

Robert T. Fabian Hycalog Houston A rock strength analysis program, through intensive log analysis, can quantify rock hardness in terms of confined compressive strength to identify intervals suited for drilling with polycrystalline diamond compact (PDC) bits. Additionally, knowing the confined compressive strength helps determine the optimum PDC bit for the intervals.
