Help in designing appropriate BHA to reach directional objectives

BHA pre-analysis software description

The BHA Pre-Analysis module is a powerful and very accessible tool, evaluating 3D directional response (build/drop rate, turn rate) of any drilling system (rotary, RSS, motor …) in any type of trajectory. It fully integrates rock, BHA, and bit coupled interactions. It can also be associated to the PDC Bit Model module, to specifically account for each bit profile.

This module provides a complete analysis of the directional behavior of any proposed BHA to compare its directional abilities to the objectives within the planned wellpath. Based on an initial proposal, it also helps to propose design optimization when necessary.

Benefits of BHA pre-analysis

  • Fixed and equilibrium curvature calculation modes

    Calculate the tilt at bit, the side forces, the bending moment and the deflection of the BHA along your trajectory.

  • Automatic and optimized rotary BHA design

    Design a simplified BHA in less than a minute or a complete customized BHA with full personalization of each element.

  • Sensitivity analyses

    Use the variation mode on several drilling parameters to assess their impact on the BHA’s directional response.

  • Fast and accurate results

    Determine the BHA responsiveness in few minutes, making this module suitable for while-drilling operations.

  • Access to DrillScan expertise and support

    Benefit from the DrillScan’s significant staff experience in directional drilling to achieve your objectives.
