Technology gains momentum

Rotary-steerable systems possess clear advantages, both technologically and economically, over many mud motor-based drilling systems. The service industry is responding to this by providing operators with new tools, expanding their ability to drill extended-reach and underbalanced wells, smooth out well trajectories, and optimize well configurations for production enhancement. Ultimately, motor-based directional systems may eventually be replaced by rotary-steerable alternatives, except for
