Innovative well technology
STN is funding several novel well technology projects. One of the developed concepts combines hydraulic weight on bit technology with a dual drill string and float valve. The main applications for this innovative technology are extended reach drilling, managed pressure drilling, underbalanced drilling, liner drilling and deep water drilling while reducing environmental impact.
