That’s almost 1,900 miles—the distance from North Dakota to south Texas—where two of the most prolific unconventional plays in the U.S. are found.

Since its launch in 2012, the AutoTrak Curve system has drilled hundreds of onshore wells in these and other unconventional reservoirs in North America. High buildup rates (up to 15°/100 ft) let you drill deeper, hit the reservoir earlier, and increase wellbore exposure in the sweet spot.

A gamma ray detector integrated near the bit enables precise geosteering. In one run, you get smooth curves, straight tangents, and better hole quality for more effective fracturing operations and higher production rates.
