Well Plan

Well Plan  is based on the  minimum curvature method to design a precise and smooth well bore trajectory through multiple targets is quickly and easily accomplished using this program.

The program utilizes The Minimum Curvature method is used to calculate 3-dimensional displacements of the well bore according to “end-point” inputs supplied by the user. Minimum Curvature is widely accepted by the oil industry to be the most accurate mathematical analysis for directional surveys as opposed to previous, less rigorous methods such as Least Squares, Tangential, Average Angle and Radius of Curvature.

Software that does not cost an arm and a leg but makes planning complex well trajectories a simple task. The latest version can be integrated with Tri-Axial casing design.

Drilling Engineeer incorporated both Well Plan and Casing Design into one easy to use package you can export the planned well trajectory and import the survey in to casing design in a couple of clicks

The planned design allows you to design a directional trajectory for any well profile includes the following well bore trajectories.;

Well Planning software
  • Vertical,
  • Slant
  • Horizontal
  • S-Curve
  • Custom

The following data is calculated with a minimum of end point entries;

  • Target Data is included for up to four targets.
  • KOP & Build Rate (°/100Ft,  °/30Mtrs)
  • EOB depth
  • Tangent depth or Lateral Section length
  • Drop Section and Turn Rates  (°/100Ft,  °/30Mtrs)
  • EOD depth
  • Closure distance and azimuth
  • View the video

Charts presentations;

  • Vertical section view with lateral displacement vs true vertical depth (TVD)
  • Plan view (N/-S, E/-W) displacement vs true vertical depth (TVD)
  • Dog Leg Severity (DLS) vs measured depth (°/100Ft,  °/30Mtrs)

The program auto calculates the Planned trajectory and Drilled trajectories with visual targets and Dog Leg Severity (DLS)

Actual directional surveys can be input as the well is drilled.

Each planned trajectory is compared with the actual drilled trajectory.

You have the option of importing a planned and actual surveys (MD, Inclination, Azimuth),

Planned, Drilled or Custom trajectories can be exported for use in other programs.

This program will be integrated with the latest version of Casing Design.
