Our state of the art low cost rotary steerable is a 4-blade push-the-bit closed loop design. The 23’ compact design houses inclination and azimuth 3’ from the bit. LCRS continuously proves to lower cost per foot significantly.


In-House Maintenance

Panther Drilling Systems utilizes a custom built state of the art service facility to perform in-house maintenance on our downhole equipment.


Motor Service Facility

PDS owns cutting edge service equipment, which is well maintained and calibrated at regular intervals. Panther owns the highest quality torque machine available which stores all connection torque values in a database made available for our customers.

Panther’s motor service center is led by 40 years of experience in the motor service industry. PDS technicians are available 24 hours a day 7 days a week to meet customer needs and react to any situation in a timely manner.

Panther adheres to the strict maintenance policies and procedures, which meet and often exceed industry standards. Every motor used is completely serviced to the maximum level regardless of run time or conditions. Only certified third party inspectors perform non-destructive testing on every used motor. All service is documented and all major component history is tracked from cradle to grave.


MWD Service Facility

Panther’s MWD maintenance program was generated and implemented from the ground up incorporating the latest technology in test equipment, both manual and automated, specifically designed for the downhole tool components used by Panther.

The personnel selected to perform MWD maintenance for PDS have a vast knowledge in both surface and downhole aspects of the components utilized. This invaluable experience allows for all components to operate at their maximum potential resulting in reliable and efficient MWD data collection and interpretation.

All components are thoroughly tested with heat and vibration simulation as well as 25 point calibration tests with directional sensors on a normal well to well usage cycle. The Gamma Ray detection tools are calibrated to API specifications each time they are cycled through the maintenance facility to ensure accuracy at the well site each and every time.



Panther Drilling Systems is driven to exceeding industry and regulatory health, safety, and environmental standards.

Panther views compliance with local, state, and federal health and safety regulations as a responsibility rather than a requirement.

Panther’s vision is to be held in the highest opinion for execution at the well-site. This execution starts with safety and that is why Panther’s first priority is the safety of our employees as well as any other client’s vendor we are in contact with.

At Panther, we foster a culture that ensures that the safety of our employees is ranked as our highest priority. We accomplish this through ZERO-ing in on safety.
