Ulterra is a Texas based company that designs and manufactures high quality polycrystalline diamond compact (PDC) drill bits and a variety of downhole tools to enable clients in the global oil and gas industry to reduce drilling costs and increase the efficiency of their operations. The company’s products include steel and matrix PDC bits, Torkbuster, and Truguage.
Ulterra’s key strength lies in the considerable experience of their engineers who are seasoned in designing, manufacturing, and repairing high quality, high performance drill bits for the global market. What makes the company stand out from the competition is that the products and technologies that they develop are based on the specific needs of their customers. Ulterra achieves this through UTechnology®, which they apply to all stages of product development including new design concepts, manufacturing processes, materials development, repair and maintenance techniques, quality control standards, and customer service quality and responsiveness.
The company has developed a range of patented UTechnologies including Fastback for a rate of penetration (ROP) enhancement, Splitblade for bit cleaning, and Lightspeed for cutter optimization. One of Ulterra’s notable developments is CounterForce®, a patent-pending PDC bit technology, which has a unique cutter structure that is engineered to slice through rock while maintaining a consistent torque signature. The benefits of this technology are increases stability and ROP, reduces torque and vibration, and improved drilling efficiency and directional performance.
Ulterra places applications engineers close to the customer at a district level and uses a variety of tools and computer-aided design (CAD) to ensure their specific needs are understood. This includes the company’s Rock Destruction Analysis tool, which helps their sales team and engineers better understand the client’s challenging drilling environment. Other tools include the Performance Chart Maker (PCM), which allows performance comparisons between Ulterra’s products and those of their competitors, and 3D Solid Modeling Design to ensure that high quality precision is built into every bit.
In addition, Ulterra offers a range of optional features with all their drill bits. These include Casing Drill Outs to enhance bit’s casing drilling capability and In-gauge PDCs for added protection drilling abrasive applications.
