Drillsoft: Drilling Software & Automation
Drillsoft is a real time hydraulics Software that concentrates on drilling hydraulics and modeling wellbore pressures and temperatures during all phases of the drilling operation in extended-reach, highly deviated, horizontal and high temperature and high pressure (HTHP) wells. The simulator uses state of the art algorithms and provides the user with a wide range of modeling options.
The simulator includes a well trajectory and planning model well directional profiles, whether computed or imported from other directional survey service providers. The well trajectories will be displayed in 3-D profile.
Drillsoft calculates and evaluates down-hole temperatures during drilling, circulating and shut-in operations for land and deep-water wells. A finite difference mathematical model has been developed to predict well bore and formation transient temperature behavior during drilling, fluid circulation and shut-in operations. This includes wells with multiple temperature gradients and well bore deviations, based on the fluids physical characteristics. The PVT model accurately calculates ECD and ESD according to formation and wellbore temperature profiles.
Drillsoft can be used to analyze and optimize the hydraulics program for complex wells where there is a tight tolerance between ECD and fracture pressure, or pore pressure and fracture pressure. It takes into account the down-hole effects on rheological properties and mud density. HDX takes in account the effects of RPM, tool-joints and cuttings loading on pressure loss calculations to improve ECDs calculations.
Well Modeling Will Support:
- Easy and intuitive user interface
- Tubular Library (Casing/Drill string lookup tables)
- Directional Wellbore live (fluids and data)
- Fluid tracking
- 2D/3D views
- Store/Record data MS-Access Database (Excel compatible)
- Quick hydraulic Calculations
- Rheology Optimization
- Quick Calculations for Valves Failure
Drillsoft HDX is a single phase trasient well model that calculates and evulates down -hole temperatures during drilling, circulating and shut-in operations for the land and dee-water wells. Includes features described above.
Drillsoft HDX Plus
Drillsoft HDX Plus is the similar to Drillsoft HDX. While all of the features and functions are the same, a few noticeable upgrades have been added to Drillsoft HDX Plus.
Drillsoft HDX Real Time
Drillsoft Real-Time can take all WITS combined from EDR and PWD/MLW companies or separated signal either Serial or TCP/IP. Bidirectional communication is possible (send and receive using the same cable).
Additionally offers Real-Time monitoring by sending via web to a dedicated server signals. This option requires internet in-situ (Rig site).
Our programmable logic controllers are integrated for choke automation. All the features from Drillsoft’s HDX software is available with our PLC’S. Get current WHP and Send a signal to Open/Close the choke’s with Drillsoft’s PLC’S.
IADC defines PMCD as a variation of MPD that involves “drilling with no returns to surface, where an annulus fluid column, assisted by surface pressure, is maintained above a formation that is capable of accepting fluid and cuttings”.
During the PMCD drilling, sea-water is normally used as sacrificial mud and no cuttings are recovered to the surface.
Drillsoft simulate reverse circulation in the annulus while applying surface back pressure to bull head fluids into formations. You can visualize and monitor the different fluids in the well schematic, so is very easy to understand the technique.
