Ensure that the planned operations do not exceed your rig capacity (HL and Torque rating)

Anticipate potential lockup of drilling, casing and completion strings and redesign accordingly

Plan hookload (SOW, PUW) and surface torque vs MD for complex drilling runs to follow up on-site

Avoid exposure of BHA to excessive buckling or compression and ensure proper bit weight transfer

Torque and drag and buckling analysis service description

Torque and  Drag and Buckling Analysis is used to validate well profile and drill string designs and prevent loss of rig time by eliminating drill string failure.

Drilling engineers can use torque and drag and buckling analysis service to model all types of drill strings, casing strings, sand control screens, completion strings (Electrical Submersible Pumps and the like).

Stiff String analysis options allow calculation of all the forces acting upon the string including torque, drag, bending stress and contact side forces.

The calculated loads are compared to string yield limits and rig operating limits to avoid any failure along the string.

  • Planned and feasible

    Ensure that all operations from drilling to RIH the completion are properly planned and feasible.

  • Extend horizontal drain limit

    Increase rig drilling envelop and extend horizontal drain limit.

  • Reduce NPT

    Prevent lockup or twist-off of drilling, casing, and production strings and reduce NPT.

  • Avoid buckling

    Reduce hidden lost time by avoiding buckling related issues (Tortuous hole, low sliding ROP, etc…).

  • Hang up

    Adapt centralization and stiffness to prevent casing and completion hang up.
