Understanding Torque & Drag: Concepts and Analysis

Introduction Why do we need to perform torque and drag analysis? Torque and drag removes superstition and reduces dependence on assumptions from well planning by taking into account all aspects of the plan from equipment specifications and formation properties. Changes made to specific components during planning is readily computed for the entire system. This allows Continue reading


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
