Reduce costs, drill more efficiently without compromising safety

Designing complex well string operations requires rigorous analysis to define the key aspects of each pipe-related operation in the wellbore. For more than 25 years, WellPlan software has responded to industry drilling challenges. The latest version combines robust and reliable engineering algorithms with dramatic advancements in ease-of-use and data visualization, enabling engineers to perform better analyses faster, while reducing IT training and support costs.

Integrated with the Engineer’s Desktop™ (EDT™) suite and Engineer’s Data Model™ (EDM™) database, WellPlan provides the most comprehensive well engineering software tool kit in the industry and is designed to reduce costs in the well construction lifecycle.

A drilling operations manager for an international independent reported that in 15 minutes he was able to determine that excessive torque had caused a failure in the bottom of the string; previously that would have taken half a day.

Well engineering integration

Results and analysis performed in the WellPlan interface are stored in the EDM database and are shared across the Landmark suite of well construction applications for specific drilling, casing or costing analysis. The applications can operate in a standalone or multi-user environment, so they can be scaled from a single user to a corporate-wide system.

Configure the right tools for any job

WellPlan software can help you select the optimum rig and equipment, string components and fluids to drill a full range of well types including onshore, offshore, deep water, high-pressure/high-temperature, 3D directional profiles, horizontal and extended reach. WellPlan also can help you anticipate risks and drill faster without compromising the safety of the operation.

Simplified process leads to better well decision-making

The completely redesigned user interface provides a simple approach to inputting data and powerful graphical visualization capabilities for better and faster interpretation. Output-driven-input™ methodology identifies required data and provides hyperlinks to the appropriate input panel. With this simplified process, users can conduct faster and more accurate analysis to support better decisions.

Sensitivity analysis

WellPlan provides a powerful method of performing generalized sensitivity analysis. Instead of performing manual iterations or running several analyses one at a time, users can define a range of values for the numeric variables wanted and perform the analysis simultaneously. Detailed graphical representations enable a quick review of the different alternatives.
