Well Planning

Developing a comprehensive strategy

Thorough well appraisal yields critical data used to develop drilling systems, plan well trajectories, and avoid potential hazards or other existing wells. Analyzing all of this available data helps to create a complete well plan that considers every aspect of the drilling process.

Well planning: A collaborative approach

Software simulating the downhole environment yields extensive data regarding lithology, fluids, and geomechanics. Based on this data, multidisciplinary teams develop an integrated drilling plan and drilling system for maximum performance in the anticipated environment.

Creating strategies to boost well performance

Our extensive experience in the world’s major shale plays, as well as our expertise in drilling and well planning, enables us to create strategies that maximize results with accurate placement and superior performance.
