Sicotte fixed cutter bits use premium North American cutters and are available in multiple blade and cutter configurations tailored to a wide spectrum of applications. Our unique design offers high ROP and increased durability with steel, matrix, and hybrid bodies.
Steel Series bits offer enhanced resistance to high-impact loading environments. Engineered for configuration flexibility with complex and aggressive bit profiles including shorter make-up-length, thinner and higher blades as well as hydraulic designs for a wide spectrum of applications. Short make-up-length designs provide shorter bit-to-bend distance for greater DSL capability and ease of building angle to complete a curve.
Heavy Oil Series bits feature a proven abrasion/erosion resistant design that incorporates proprietary fused material specifically engineered for extremely abrasive interbedded long intervals or high impact loading applications. Flexibility with complex bit profiles including thinner and higher blades, hydraulic designs, and shorter make-up-length provides shorter bit-to-bend distance for greater DSL capability and ease of building angle to complete a curve.
Directional Series bits are designed to consistently achieve build rates in curves and minimize unnecessary bit trips in lateral applications. Available in steel or matrix construction. Designs incorporate torque fluctuation control elements to improve bit steerability, maintain borehole consistency, resist unintended dropping or building events, and also have the ability to maintain verticality in high dip formations in extended lateral applications.
Rotary Steerable Series bits are available in steel or matrix construction. Each bit is engineered for a specific "Point the bit" or "Push the bit" rotary steerable system (RSS) or directional objective, while maintaining ease of BHA integration. Features a designed focused on responsive and high-performance cutting structure as well as other optional features that enhance the performance, stability, durability, and directional precision of the bit.
Horizontal Directional Series bits are engineered for blast hole, water well, geothermal, mining exploration and directional boring applications commonly known as HDD. Features uniquely engineered cutting elements that drill Glacial Tilt and overburden at high rate of penetration at shallow depths. Directed flow channels coupled with interchangeable nozzles allow operators to change hydraulics requirements on the fly to maximize hole cleaning and prevent bit balling.
Hypercool Series bits are designed for high performance under extreme thermal loading. They are optimized using computational fluid dynamics (CFD) to provide large fluid cooling capacity at all cutting surfaces, extracting maximum performance from diamond tables and mitigating one of the primary reasons for premature cutter failure. Improved durability and cutter life, high ROP, and enhanced cuttings cleaning efficiency are pushed to the limit in this advanced bit series.
Sicotte enlargement tools are engineered for maximum reliability and performance while maintaining optimal wellbore quality. Various concentric, eccentric, and multi-stage designs are available for versatility in drillstring placement and configuration.
Bi-center Series bits are designed to enlarge 15 to 25 percent of the pass-through wellbore in a restricted wellbore environment. Available in steel or matrix construction. A unibody design provides both shorter overall length and bit-to-bend distance for improved directional control. Features balanced pilot and reaming cutting structures that ensure both sections are equally loaded to minimize tool whirling.
Concentric Series Reamers
Concentric Series PDC reamers/hole openers are designed for multi-function applications. A self-centering design allows the tool to be placed either in-string as a reamer/hole opener, or above the LWD to manage excessive vibration in conjunction with a smaller diameter bit that requires less energy below the LWD. It can also be used to improve hybrid drilling where roller-cone bits are employed as pilot bits.
Eccentric Series PDC reamers/hole openers are designed to function as fixed-blade under-reaming tools that preclude mechanical failure because of a design that has no moving parts and also requires no specialty field operators to support the function of the tool. It can be placed above the bit to function as bi-center bit or above a RSS or mud motor to enlarge the hole concurrent with directional work.
Multi-Stage Series Reamers
Multi-Stage Series reamers are concentric PDC reamers/hole openers designed to enlarge a borehole in a single run. They feature a precisely engineered multi-staged hyper-stable balanced cutting structure that ensures fast penetration rate and concentric borehole profile. Tools are applicable in rotary or rotary steerable assemblies in both straight and deviated holes. Sizes up to 32” (813 mm) are available.
Sicotte completions tools are designed for high rate of penetration and faster milling times during the transition to production.
Barracuda Series tools offer improved ROP for applications such as frac & bridge plugs, ball & seat completion systems, and cement. Minimal debris size together with CFD flow path optimization ensures that cuttings are removed for maximum performance. A tapered spiral profile contributes to self-centering, stability, and durability all while preventing the tool from milling through casing.
