Delaware Basin, United States
Lucida Service drilled top two best-in-class production sections

Exceptional drilling performance

Lucida’s robust integrated bottomhole assembly, with a fully customized drill bit specifically designed for each application, lets you:

  • Maximize penetration rates and get precise directional control with Lucida’s premium cutters and advanced drill bit directional control features
  • Optimize energy transition with real-time dynamic sensors integrated into the steering unit
  • Extend the operational envelope to tougher, hotter,and deeper environments with full multi-chip module (MCM) electronics

Exact well placement

With 16-sector gamma ray sensors, positioned close to the bit, Lucida delivers real-time formation data that let you:

  • Navigate the reservoir precisely
  • Make quick decisions to geosteer or geo-stop
  • Hit geological targets the first time, with no sidetracks

Superior wellbore quality

Lucida’s automated wellpath trajectory control system integrates both azimuthal and inclination hold modes with continuous proportional steering, letting you:

  • Automatically correct wellbore trajectory for any formation trends
  • Check azimuth and inclination every millisecond
  • Automatically adjust steer forces second-by-second for precise control – even at very high penetration rates

And Lucida is fully enabled for Baker Hughes Remote Operations services.

  • With experience from thousands of wells, our drilling and evaluation experts use proprietary systems and advanced technology to execute remote drilling operations and deliver consistent results - everywhere.
