Your personalized well analysis

Follow these 6 steps to recieve a personalized time savings estimate. Hover over for more information.

Default values have been entered as an example. Please change the default values to estimate your time savings.

Step 1: Well design

Input well sections, respective total depth (TD) and select drive.

Step 2: Data transmission time

Input information below to calculate data transmission time savings.

Survey Interval   Surveys (at connection) hrs
Average Survey Time   Check/Repeat Survey
RSS Downlink Interval   RSS Downlinks hrs
Off-Bottom Downlinks  % Slide Orientation hrs
Slide Frequency   Formation Pressure Tests hrs
Check/Repeat Survey Frequency  
Formation Pressure Tests  Per well Time Saved: hrs

Step 3: Increased drilling performance (ROP)

Input current ROP (ft/hr) and check all that apply for each section to calculate increased ROP, drilling time reduction and total time savings.

ROP Limiter ROP Increase (%)
Current ROP

Check all that apply and estimate the performance limit

Shock and Vibration /Hard Rock/ Stringers  %
Hole Cleaning/ ECD Management  %
Formation Evaluation Logging Density  %
Directional Control/ Well Placement  %
