wellPlanner focus on high-end quality planning simulations and optimizations within a number of well construction effects, and provide planning and quality assurance of drilling operations with high-end analysis tools.

wellPlanner is an integral part of our Life Cycle Drilling Simulation concept – advanced dynamic drilling models and diagnosis technology merged with 3D visualization into a “virtual wellbore”.

The various drilling models interact, and can be used in the whole drilling value chain from planning & design (wellPlanner) through training and scenario developments (wellSim) and then real-time monitoring/operations (wellAhead) and finally post analysis and experience transfer (wellAhead Replay and wellAhead ReCalc service).

The solution combines a transient integrated drilling simulator (wellSim) with a decision support system which supports all life-cycles of drilling a well; planning, training, drilling and post-analysis/learning.
