Provides well design and trajectory, Bottom Hole Assembly analysis, Anti-collision, torque and drag analysis to optimize drilling progress faster and safe and met the target.
Sysdrill Director® is the industry's most advanced directional well planning and survey management system. It is used by operating companies and drilling service companies to safely and accurately plan, drill and monitor directional wells.
Well planning and drilling is the final and often most expensive component of the E&P workflow. Increasing drilling risk and cost, along with the rising demand for hydrocarbons in the current market, make well-informed and accurate drilling more crucial than ever.
Anti-collision analysis can be performed against an unlimited number of offset wells stored in the Paradigm Sysdrill Database. Results include wellbore separation, ellipse separation, clearance factor and diverging depths. If positional uncertainty has been specified at surface, then it can also be included in the anti-collision analysis.
The existing drilling trend can be analyzed to determine whether corrective action is required, and if so, a revised trajectory can be calculated based upon "return to plan" or "project to target" definitions. Projections are visualized in the 3D Viewer including positional uncertainty and can be compared to the drillers' target. Anti-collision analysis can also be performed along the projection to avoid risk of collision. A project-ahead report can be produced and issued to the directional driller.
Paradigm Sysdrill Director has a full range of modeling techniques for MWD, gyro and inertial downhole survey instruments. These include cones of uncertainty, Wolff and de Wardt, ISCWSA magnetic and gyro models. In addition, the drilling engineer can create user-defined error models based upon tool manufacturers' specifications. For re-entry wells, Paradigm Sysdrill Director can model "re-surveying" of the original wellbore with a more accurate survey tool without having to modify the original data, thus ensuring the integrity of the database.
Torque and Drag
Torque & Drag analysis system is used to validate well designs and prevent loss of rig time by eliminating drilling string failure. Drilling engineers can use the system to model all types of BHAs, e.g., drilling assemblies, casing strings, sand screens, and completion strings.
Soft and stiff string analysis options allow calculation of all the forces acting upon the BHA including torque, drag, stresses and side forces. The calculated loads are compared to string yield limits and rig operating limits and the results presented using a "traffic light" approach for fast identification of specific issues. Detailed graphical and tabular results
provide a comprehensive description of the modeled scenario. Multiple user defined operating modes can be incorporated in a single calculation, allowing the entire drilling process to be modeled for a given hole section.
Hydraulics optimization and analysis system is used to model downhole circulating pressures during drilling, tripping, and running casing. There are several modes of optimization to enhance bit hydraulic performance and ensure effective hole cleaning.
BHA Prediction and Behavior Analysis
Bottom Hole Assembly (BHA) design is very critical; to understand the BHA behavior is a MUST both in vertical or directional drilling. Three most important point must be known in advance before start drilling, are: maximum rpm of the BHA, tendency given by the BHA especially for directional drilling and BHA bending effect.
