Featured Employer: At Balance
Since its incorporation in December 2004, At Balance, an operating unit of Smith International, Inc., has led the trend in Automated Managed Pressure Drilling (MPD) – a new upstream technology segment focused on delivering the benefits of constant bottom hole pressure control. At Balance is the leader in Automated Pressure Control for Managed Pressure Drilling operations. We delivered the first, and we still provide the only fully automated, dynamic control system for balanced, stable drilling pressure. At Balance is the sole provider of MPD services utilizing the field-proven Dynamic Annular Pressure Control System (DAPC). The DAPC system is a fully automated choke system that is a new standard for bottom hole pressure (BHP) control beyond that which manual and semi-automated choke systems can achieve. Our Automated Pressure Drilling services provide the pressure stability needed to maintain the bottom hole pressure at balance during all phases of well construction. Operators drilling with constant bottom hole pressure reduce conventional drilling cost, reduce formation damage, and enable drilling in areas with pressure margins too narrow and technically difficult for conventional techniques.
At Balance is a wholly owned subsidiary of Smith International, Inc. Smith International, Inc. is a large, diversified oilfield service company based in Houston, Texas. The Company is one of the largest global providers of products and services used by operators during the drilling, completion and production phases of oil and natural gas development activities. Smith employs more than 25, 000 full-time personnel and operates through the following business units – M-I SWACO, Smith Oilfield and Distribution. Our common stock is traded on several market exchanges, including the New York Stock Exchange, under the symbol SII. In 2010, Smith successfully broadened their product capabilities with the acquisition and subsequent integration of At Balance automated pressure drilling operations. This strategic combination added a number of complementary services to Smith’s down hole offerings. At Balance is a company of international employees who work around the world for independent, international, and national energy companies drilling for oil, gas, and other natural resources, offshore and onshore.
