Halliburton releases advanced drill bit with improved layout design

Halliburton has announced the release of Stega efficient layout design, an advanced drill bit that optimizes the placement of back-up cutters to improve bit durability without decreasing drilling efficiency or rate of penetration (ROP).

Compared to the best performance of the non-Stega layouts, the Stega bit drilled approximately 40% (2,400 ft) further at an ROP that was 19% (15 ft) per hr faster.

What a beauty.

It looks like something out of Hellraiser and this is not to contradict your comment on its beauty. It's in agreement with it.
