KONTOUR™ Rotary Steerable System

The KONTOUR™ rotary steerable system is SIMPLICITY in ACTION. The tool is a robust integration of very few components.

KONTOUR™ brings a unique, patented design of Automated Rotary Steering System to market, for improved directional and horizontal wellbore placement.

Precise Control

A powerful electro-mechanical system controls two internal sleeves that provide curvature (or DogLeg) and tool face control on-demand or through automated self-steering control.​

The ability to alter dogleg and tool face independently enables precise control in proportion to what is required to precisely achieve the well placement objectives. This ensures the smoothest, least tortuous wellbore possible.​

Improved Reliability & Efficiency

Four main components are assembled to provide the tools’ framework. Fewer components enhance reliability and improve the running cost of the system. The precise, independent tool face and dogleg control, ensures SMOOTH transition of well geometry and minimizes microtortuosity.​

Improved Steerability

The KINETIC KONTOUR™ system decouples its’ rotating drillstring from its’ steering housing, slowing the duty cycle required on the system.​ This improves reliability and steerability.​

Four Dimensional Control

The slower rotation of the KONTOUR™ steering mechanism enables the four-dimensional control of an internal offset within the tool, not paddles or pistons. The offset generates large bit deflections and side forces, in precise proportion to what is required for the directional plan.​

Slow is smooth and smooth is fast!​

Why make KONTOUR™ part of your drilling program?

  • Faster ROP and more accurate well placement with 100% drillstring rotation
  • Continuous proportional steering provides smoother, faster-drilled wellbores
