Scope of Work
The scope of work includes, but is not limited to the provision of Drill Bits, associated tools and highly qualified specialist personnel.
Interested companies must be able to provide the following:
A- Stocking and supply of Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) roller cone and fixed cutter PDC drill bits and associated accessories in various sizes ranging from 26” through 6”,
B- Drill bit suppliers shall have a direct Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with the OEM, third party agreements will not be considered,
C- OEM shall be approved by the company.
D- OEM’s facility shall be certified by American Petroleum Institute (API), to Monogram drill bits under API Spec Q-1 and API Spec 7-1 Licenses.
E- Research and development facility to implement world-class technological advances and minimize bit failures, drilling problems associated with bit performance, and non-productive time which supports designing customized bits according to Company design parameters,
F- Proven software for bit design and analytical modeling and the expertise to use it,
G- Thorough and documented product failure analysis process for all features of every type, with qualified and experienced personnel to perform the failure analysis in a reasonable amount of time,
H- Be able to identify all common modes of failure and implement design and/or manufacturing changes to rectify the issue for continuous improvement,
I- A system for monitoring and documenting drill bit performance and applying past performance to improve design and manufacturing, resulting in continuous improvement,
J- Derive rock strength from logs and use this data to recommend and/or design drill bits,
K- Predict steerability characteristics of a proposed drill bit design with a specific gauge relief,
L- Capability to recommend specific drill bits or drill bit designs that will achieve q target build build or turn rate using the major rotary steerable systems,
M- Capability to limit bit aggressiveness and rate of penetration (ROP) using depth of cut control (DOCC) technology and provide documented bit performance data to show successful bit runs.
N- Continuous optimization of drill bit design, complementing Company’s drilling performance efforts,
O- Maintain valid API certificates and licenses and manufacturer’s certificates and licenses as required.
