Baker Hughes GE will ship bits to the schools who requested one of their bits. They are scheduled to ship from Houston on 8 April. Each team will receive two bits that will allow teams to test and tune their system’s performance. Both bits must be transported with the rig to the test venue. No new bit will be provided at the venue, so take care not to damage both of your bits. After the tests in Celle and Houston, all bits will be collected and returned to BHGE.
