Successful Validation of Drillsoft Hydraulic Software: Transient Simulator in a Deep-Water well

A successful validation of Drillsoft® hydraulics software transient well model was carried during the drilling operation in deep-water well in West Africa.  Using Pressure-While-Drilling (PWD – measurement of downhole annulus pressure and temperature) to compare the measured ECDs and static mud densities with hydraulic transient model predictions. This article present actual pressure and temperature data during Continue reading
