With the DrillPlan coherent well construction planning solution, you have access to all your engineering tools and data in a common system with integrated cross domain workflows. All these workflows are fully integrated at the process level, which enables all the engines to work with the same shared information. DrillPlan applies automated engineering analysis and validation across your entire well design - for each hole section and every run. For every change in the well design, over 30 automated engines run continuously in the background, with a simple traffic light system highlighting if the plan is valid and coherent.
The validation dashboard includes automated engineering analysis for tri-axial casing design; this provides a comprehensive evaluation of casing integrity, with calculations of burst, collapse, tension, compression, von misses and buckling. It includes casing and liner running details on hydraulics and torque drag per hole section, ensuring the generation of an optimum and safe casing design throughout your entire well.
The validation dashboard includes all the critical calculations for establishing optimal drilling operational parameters and constraints per hole section. This includes hydraulics validation with results on total pressure, ESD, ECD, hole cleaning index and bit pressure. The calculations also verify torque & drag with details of hookload, surface torque, stress, buckling, overpull and connection make up torque. The automatic validation of all these engines enables effective execution while drilling your well.
The kick tolerance is one of the important criteria. Single bubble kick tolerance calculations are run for all sections, providing critical information for defining the casing seat position and sectioning (integrity) of the well bore.
With DrillPlan automated engineering analysis and validation, you can increase the efficiency on your planning process while ensuring a coherent well construction program and thus achieve safer and optimized operations.
