Overview, Features & Benefits
The VersaStabe Jr.™ is a downhole, hydraulically-actuated stabilizer. Designed for use in a 2D directional drilling application to help control the inclination in an extended reach or horizontal well, the VersaStabe Jr.™ can be utilized in a conventional rotary bottom hole assembly, or positioned above or below a steerable motor. The gauge diameter of the stabilizer is controlled remotely by the pumps on surface.
The unique blade geometry of the VersaStabe Jr.™ makes it the only downhole adjustable stabilizer that combines ease of sliding when run above a motor, with improved cuttings transport when rotating. The VersaStabe Jr.™ is a shorter but equally robust version of the VersaStabe™.
- Provides 2D steering control in a conventional drilling application with low operating cost.
- Carbide hardfacing and diamond coating on blades and pistons provide long wear life and reduced operating costs.
- Unique blade profile aids in hole cleaning while rotating and allows for easy sliding.
- Tool is operated by cycling the rig pumps. Standpipe pressure indicates piston position resulting simple operation.
