eDrilling launches wəllPlanner™ Microservices

eDrilling is proud to announce that we now offer our wəllPlanner™ tool as microservices. wəllPlanner™ is our planning tool for drilling and well construction operations, focusing on increasing the quality of well engineering simulations. Accurate drilling parameters are selected for safe and efficient operations- by using advanced dynamic transient models, the software will help reduce uncertainties in well planning, non-productive time as well as cost.

wəllPlanner microservices allows for an instant upgrade to legacy well planning and design systems. It complements the existing in-house programs for expediated planning process allowing the drilling teams to focus on higher value activities. It is based on OpenAPI specification enabling easy integration and improvement of the existing workflow as microservices without having to replace existing systems.

Some of the key benefits of wəllPlanner™ microservices are:

  • OpenAPI specification as RESTful HTTP API for ease of integration as external modules
  • Scalable solution allowing for running simultaneous multiple simulations
  • Augments and extends the value of existing software

wəllPlanner™ has applications across drilling activities such as tripping with dynamic surge and swab evaluation, cementing, liner running, milling, screen running, HPHT, ERD, MPD, DGD and pressurized mud cap drilling.

The microservices is offered as two modules allowing the client to choose based on their requirements.:

  1. Dynamic simulations for hydraulics and temperature which includes – Multiphase flow, Static and dynamic density, Pressure and flow, Temperature, Rheology of different fluid, Frictional pressure loss, Cuttings load and transport in the annulus, Pit gain


  1. Torque and drag which includes – WOB from hook load or vice versa, TOB from surface torque or vice versa, Axial and rotational friction factors, Bit depth corrections due to string elasticity, buoyancy, pump rates and pressure, Well depth, Rotational speed and block speed, Drag forces, Nozzle pulse


eDrilling is a world leading supplier of AI, machine learning, and predictive analytics solutions to the oil and gas industry. Working closely with E&P companies, operators, and service companies, eDrilling helps them save cost, improve safety, increase efficiency, and sustainability of drilling operations.



Black Friday – Free Replay

Black Friday, and Black Week is fortunately not only about electronics bargains and the like.  This year we have an exclusive AI offering for our customers – a free replay of a well.

It is the next best thing to using AI on a live well, and it will convince doubters and naysayers.

Please contact our Kenza Lahlou to get started. You will reach her on kl@edrilling.no.


Hurry, offer ends Friday.


eDrilling is hiring for drilling analysts in Jakarta, Indonesia

eDrilling is hiring for drilling analysts in Jakarta, Indonesia. To be part of our 24/7 Drilling Advisory Services team, helping energy professionals better plan, prepare for, and perform drilling operations. With adoption of AI, Machine Learning and Predictive Analytics in drilling operations at a tipping point, this is a great time to join one of the energy industry’s most innovative companies.

If you are interested, please apply here

What you will do

First and foremost, you will become a trusted drilling advisor to our current and future customers around the world. As part of our 24/7 Drilling Advisory Services team, you will help energy professionals better plan, prepare for, and perform drilling operations.  

Your responsibilities will be

– Real time optimization of drilling operations (drilling, tripping, liner running, casing, etc), using eDrilling’s AI and predictive analytics software (forecasting simulations, forward looking simulation, what-if simulations)

– Automated monitoring of drilling operations, using eDrilling software to help prevent downhole problems and non-productive time (i.e. stuck pipe, pack off, well-bore instability, losses, surge/swab, washout, influx, etc.)

– Provision of daily drilling optimization reports, and forecasting

– Communication with customers, well site representative(s), rig crew, service companies, etc.

– First line implementation, service, and support (configuration, troubleshooting, etc)

Who you are

You are passionate about customers, technology, and drillng (in that order) as an enabler for safer and more efficient drilling operations. You are organized and methodical in your approach, and have the “discipline” of working and communicating with drillers, drilling engineers, and software developers.  Last, but not least, you understand and get excited by innovations in drilling including artificial intelligence, machine learning, and digital twins.

Drilling Automation – The Holy Grail

eDrilling presented wellADC – our Drilling Automation software solution – at the IADC Digital Wells Conference in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, last week. We shared how our customers have implemented artificial intelligence and digitalized their operations with reduced costs and significant productivity gains in return. Using, wellAhead, the foundation of any viable rig-side automation, they rid their drilling operation of downtime and hazardouz incidents, whilst optimizing performance.

“AI, predictive analytics, predictive analytics, and digital twins represent the biggest opportunity available today for performance optimization, avoidance of NPT, and hazard prevention.” Derek Nadhan, eDrilling

In addition, we participated in a Panel discussing Intelligence Driven Operational Performance Improvements. On how energy industry must continue to adapt to new technology and allow for the changes to improve traditional business decision making. The overall event focused on the industry’s need to continuously identify and develop new technologies in addressing those evolving challenges with achieving cost and operational efficiencies, sustainability and meeting stakeholder expectations.

eDrilling is a world leading supplier of AI, machine learning, and predictive analytics solutions to the oil and gas industry.  We work closely with E&P companies, operators, and service companies to help them save cost, improve safety, and increase efficiency of drilling operations.

Our mission is to help energy professionals at E&P companies, operators and service companies reach their goals by providing drilling and well performance solutions needed to better plan, prepare for, perform and evaluate drilling operations. 

Our vision dates back to the late 1980s, when we wanted to create a downhole GPS, or Google Maps if you like, for drilling operations. Convinced artificial intelligence and machine learning technologies would represent a quantum leap in well construction, we set forth what has become a paradigm shift in the oil and gas industry. For over 25 years, leading E&P companies, service companies, and drilling contractors, have leveraged the power of these technologies to improve drilling performance, onshore and offshore, deep water and shallow water, complex wells and factory drilling. Globally.

Hazard prevention

Prior to operations, eDrilling provides you with software to acquire skills and experience on you specific upcoming well, focusing on riskavoidance and handling. During operations, eDrilling software at a very early stage detects anomalies, crews are provided diagnostics messages and notifications in good time to make the necessary adjustments.

Performance optimization

Our software provides forecasting, forward-looking and what-if analysis, allowing for change in parameters for optimal drilling (drilling the perfect well).

NPT avoidance

As above, eDrilling uses aritifical intelligence and predictive analytics to foresee what will happen with your well. Software provides diagnostics and first actions to the crew (or directly to the control system), in order to change the drilling plan – to avoid problems
