    E21B 10/42
  • US Classification:
    175408, 761082
  • Abstract:
    The invention provides a fixed cutter drill bit for drilling through unconsolidated, highly abrasive formations. The bit includes a bit body having a cutting face and a side portion. The bit body comprising carbide matrix material. A plurality of blades azimuthally spaced about the cutting face and a plurality of cutters disposed along the blades. At least one gage pad is disposed along a side of the bit body and includes wear resistant gage elements formed of a material more wear resistant than the matrix material forming a portion of the gage pad. The wear resistant elements have a rounded surface and are embedded in gage pad material proximal a leading edge of the gage pad to provide a rounded wear-resistant edge or surface proximal the leading edge.

  • US Patent:
    2012022, Sep 6, 2012
  • Filed:
    Mar 1, 2012
  • Appl. No.:
    13/410134
  • Inventors:
    Shelton W. Alsup - Houston TX,
    Philip M. Gregurek - Pearland TX,
    Shantanu N. Swadi - Cypress TX,
  • International Classification:
    E21B 7/04
  • US Classification:
    175 61, 175 73
  • Abstract:
    A system and method facilitate drilling of lateral wellbores by optionally eliminating one or more trips downhole. The system and method provide for drilling a lateral wellbore by enabling the milling of a casing window and the drilling of the desired lateral wellbore to a target depth during a single trip down hole. The system and method also facilitate better downhole dynamics control and improved overall bottom hole assembly functionality during drilling.
  • System And Method For Coupling A Drill Bit To A Whipstock

  • US Patent:
    2012025, Oct 11, 2012
  • Filed:
    Apr 5, 2012
  • Appl. No.:
    13/440708
  • Inventors:
    Philip M. Gregurek - Pearland TX,
    Shantanu N. Swadi - Cypress TX,
    Charles H. Dewey - Houston TX,

  • International Classification:
    E21B 7/08
    E21B 7/00
  • US Classification:
    175 57, 175 75
  • Abstract:
    A system and method facilitate drilling of a lateral wellbore by eliminating one or more trips downhole. The system comprises a drill bit optimized for the drilling operation. The drill bit is coupled to a whipstock via a connector, which minimizes interference with the cutting elements of the drill bit. The connector includes a separation device which facilitates disconnection of the drill bit from the whipstock after the whipstock is anchored at a desired downhole location. The separation device is disposed in the connector to minimize the remaining portions of the connector existing after separation of the drill bit from the whipstock which must be milled by the drill bit prior to drilling the lateral wellbore.
