Ensure wellbore integrity by determining fluid circulation pressure losses

Ensure adequate hole cleaning

Wellbore hydraulics software description

Calculate pressure profiles of all circulating fluids

Whatever the operation, the pressure losses associated to the mud circulation must be considered carefully. A bad estimation of the pressure in the well can lead to several problems, such as formation fracturing, influx of fluid or gas into the annulus…

By taking into account these circulation friction losses, DrillScan Software Platform allows you to calculate the pressure profiles in the well (inside and outside the working string) and other important parameters corresponding to different types of operations.

Benefits of Wellbore hydraulics

  • Pump and other surface equipment sizing

    It is quick and easy to determine the required pressure and flow rate required at surface.

  • Formation integrity and wellbore stability

    Fast results suggesting if pressure or flow rate may pose wellbore stability problems.

  • Fluid Models

    The Newtonian, Bingham plastic, Power law and Herschel-Bulkley rheological models are supported.

  • Bit nozzle selection and flow rate optimization

    Able to perform calculations to determine required bit flow area and therefore optimize the flow rate.

  • Tripping speed optimisation

    Determine safe RIH and POOH tripping speeds to avoid critical swab and surge pressures.

  • Single Depth calculation

    For a given string depth, the single calculation mode displays the fluid circulating pressure, ECD and fluid velocity profiles.

  • Multiple depth calculation

    The multiple mode allows you to assess the evolution of various quantities according to the string depth including the variations of pressure at bottom-hole while running a casing or a BHA in the well.
