Weatherford International plc has announced the commercial release of the Magnus™ rotary steerable system, which combines reliable, high-performance drilling with precise directional control. The push-the-bit tool is designed for deployment in nearly any drilling scenario, including high doglegs.

Key features of the Magnus system include fully independent pad control, a fully rotating bias unit with minimal bottomhole-assembly (BHA) stabilisation, real-time BHA diagnostics and autopilot functionality. The system comprises several modular components to facilitate quick and easy maintenance, even in remote locations.

“The Magnus system represents a major shift in the way that Weatherford approaches directional drilling, and has great potential to disrupt the status-quo rotary steerable market,” said Etienne Roux, Global Segment President, Drilling and Evaluation at Weatherford. “We are excited to provide our customers with a reliable and cost-effective option for efficiently drilling high-quality wellbores.”
