In the process of gradual reorientation of the oil industry to the production of heavy hydrocarbons, inaccessible to traditional methods of production, the need arises for the application of modern technological solutions. One of these technologies is directional drilling, which poses new challenges for drilling equipment, such as facilitating sliding-changing the angle of well bore, improving the cleaning of the wellbore, reducing the risks of differential sticking, overcoming resistance during horizontal drilling, etc. A modern technological solution is rotary steerable systems (RSS) representing a new generation of downhole systems used in directional drilling. The article discusses the advantages and disadvantages of RSS technology, its modifications, gives a classification, also provides a comparative analysis of well wiring using rotary steerable systems and, the most widely used, mud motor.
