DrillPlan Feature Update: Automated Engineering Analysis and Validation

DrillPlan integrates the core well construction engineering workflows in a single solution, allowing contextual data sharing and collaboration between your entire planning team. You instantly validate your entire well design every time you make a design change, with over 30 engineering calculations running automatically for hydraulics, torque and drag, casing design, well integrity and more. The automated engineering analysis provides instant results based on industry standard and best in class science based on Schlumberger’s extensive drilling engineering and operational experience.

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.

DrillPlan Feature Release: Casing and Liner Running Analysis with Automated Validation

Casing and liner running operations are critical to the well construction process. In DrillPlan casing and liner running engineering calculations are now available and include hydraulics to determine optimal tripping speed, and torque & drag to analyze pick-up and slack-off weights. These workflows are also now incorporated in the automated engineering analysis (AEA) so your engineering is validated every time a design change is made. Results can be visualized in plots and through the DrillPlan validation dashboard to ensure your drilling program coherency which leads to improved operational reliability.

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. You can now also perform automated analysis and validation of your casing and liner running, allowing you to optimize operational parameters while completing your well. Casing and liner running engineering calculations include; hydraulics to determine optimal tripping speed, and torque & drag to analyze pick-up and slack-off weights. These engines run automatically utilizing the applied design constraints and the contextual data shared by your team members; from trajectory design, casing/liner specifications, mud weight window, and fluid program. You can now optimize your drilling engineering planning with automated casing and liner running analysis and validation workflows – saving time and improving your drilling program coherency and operational reliability throughout well construction operations.

The integration of the WellBarrier® illustration tool into the DrillPlan cohesive well construction planning solution allows users to efficiently create and define well barrier schematics using the new “define well barriers” task. Users launch the WellBarrier® tool directly within the DrillPlan solution to access the software. Barrier illustrations are then automatically generated using all the well design contextual details for the planned activities and saved to the state “as planned” when finalised. When closing the WellBarrier® tool, users can place the barrier schematics into the DrillPlan solution with a single click, making them visible and available in the drilling report.

In the Wellbarrier tool, the well barrier schematic workflow allows users to visualize the well, with all its well barrier elements, in a clear and consistent manner. It ensures that all the well barrier elements are listed with information on how they are qualified and monitored.

Today, with the drilling planning workflows for well barriers integrated into the DrillPlan solution, users are able to prepare wellbore schematics for a complete range of activities throughout the life cycle of the well in the Wellbarrier® software.
