Cutting-edge software that enables quick adjustment to changing downhole conditions for maximized performance

Advanced real-time M-I SWACO software systems can help mitigate complications downhole before conditions lead to wellbore damage and HSE issues that drive up costs and compromise operations. Our software products can monitor downhole conditions in real time and innovatively display performance in the industry’s first interactive 3D visualization of the inside of a wellbore. These softwares also allow customers to select optimal blends of correctly sized bridging agents, providing a wealth of calculations during operations.

Complementing PWD tools with real-time data for effective ECD management

An integral part of managing equivalent circulating density (ECD), the PRESSPRO RT software package from M-I SWACO calculates downhole pressure profiles and fluid properties during drilling, tripping, and other critical operations. These calculations are derived from surface measurements at the rig, complementing data from pressure-while-drilling tools.

VIRTUAL HYDRAULICS ECD and ESD management software allows well operators to evaluate and design critical well drilling hydraulics under simulated downhole conditions, while the VIRTUAL HYDRAULICS NAVIGATOR 3D module helps visualize downhole hydraulics through a virtual window.

Enhancing fluid loss management

OPTIBRIDGE bridging agent selection software can help quickly and accurately select the optimal blends of correctly sized bridging agents for fluid loss control pills. MUDWARE engineering software, a cost-free collection of mud- and drilling-related engineering programs and technical information, provides calculations that are typically used in the field while drilling and completing a well. Altogether, innovative software from M-I SWACO helps operators optimize drilling performance and hold the line on costs.

VIRTUAL HYDRAULICS ECD and ESD Management Software

Our integrated suite of VIRTUAL HYDRAULICS ECD and ESD management software are used to evaluate and design critical drilling hydraulics under simulated downhole conditions. By monitoring and predicting equivalent circulating density (ECD), equivalent static density (ESD), temperature, hole cleaning, and tripping profiles, the software helps customers achieve a quality wellbore under optimal operating conditions while reducing rig time and lowering costs.

PRESSPRO RT Real-Time Downhole Performance Measurement Software

The PRESSPRO RT real-time downhole performance measurement software package from M-I SWACO is an integral part of managing equivalent circulating density (ECD). This innovative software provides up-to-the-minute ECD and equivalent static density (ESD) measurements at any point in the wellbore during drilling. It also delivers surge and swab pressure measurements as well as ECD data while tripping drillpipe or setting casing.

OPTIBRIDGE Bridging Agent Selection Software

OPTIBRIDGE bridging agent selection software from M-I SWACO precisely and quickly selects the optimal blends of correctly sized bridging agents for fluid loss control pills. Using formation data and information about potential materials, the software calculates the best product or mixture of particles to effectively pack a formation and prevent formation damage. These blends form a tighter and less invasive filtercake that seals pores, fractures, or completion screens. View the OPTIBRIDGE Bridging Agent Selection Software page.

MUDWARE Engineering Software

MUDWARE engineering software from M-I SWACO is a collection of mud- and drilling-related engineering programs and technical information provided free to the petroleum industry. This software contains most of the calculations typically used in the field while drilling and completing a well.
