Paradigm released the latest version of Paradigm Sysdrill 2012, an upgrade to the Sysdrill well planning and drilling engineering product suite. In response to its growing customer base, the upgrade includes many user-driven enhancements in product performance, well planning and survey management, and drilling engineering.
The new release offers advanced drilling engineering tools specifically designed to model the latest drilling techniques and equipment, such as tractor tools, swivel tools, divertor subs and managed pressure drilling. These advances provide tools that can enable drilling engineers to more accurately and safely design extended reach and deep-water wells. Improvements also include the graphical schematic representation of bottom hole assemblies (BHA) for incorporation into drilling programs, and new survey management tools for quality control purposes. Sysdrill 2012 is fully compatible with the recent Paradigm 2011 Release, enabling integrated subsurface well planning and real-time geosteering workflows.
“As the drilling industry continues to drill further and deeper there is a need for advanced drilling engineering solutions that can accurately model the latest drilling techniques.” said Robert Innes, director for well planning and drilling. “Paradigm Sysdrill 2012 provides the necessary tools to achieve these goals, and further demonstrates our commitment to the well planning and drilling engineering market.”
