Brief introduction and background

eDrilling Life Cycle Drilling Simulations: 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 (wellPlannerTM) through Training and Scenario developments (wellSimTM hiDRILL & wellSimTM) and then RT Monitoring/Operations (wellAheadTM) and finally Post Analysis and Experience Transfer (wellAheadTM Replay)

The core technology consists of SINTEF’s mathematical models developed, tested and verified over 20-years in operation; and eDrilling’s highly advanced modular engine & downhole Virtual Well.
