BICO is currently field testing two rotary steerable systems that will be offered to independent directional drilling companies. The two systems are “push the bit” technology and offer BUR from 5.2°/100’ (BICO APS) to 8°/100’ (D- Tech).
The BICO APS system incorporates a mud motor power section that allows for maximum efficiency from the rig hydraulics to achieve higher ROP when drilling. The SpiroStar power section is integral to the steering unit. The D-Tech system can be run as a stand-alone RST or a mud motor can be incorporated into the BHA above the RST.
