Your personalized well analysis

Follow these 6 steps to recieve a personalized time savings estimate. Hover over for more information.

Default values have been entered as an example. Please change the default values to estimate your time savings.

Step 1: Well design

Input well sections, respective total depth (TD) and select drive.

Section TF (FT) Interval (FT) Drive

Step 2: Data transmission time

Input information below to calculate data transmission time savings.

Survey Interval  ft Surveys (at connection) 8.3 hrs
Average Survey Time  mins Check/Repeat Survey 6.2 hrs
RSS Downlink Interval  ft RSS Downlinks 0 hrs
Off-Bottom Downlinks  % Slide Orientation 0 hrs
Slide Frequency  ft Formation Pressure Tests 2.5 hrs
Check/Repeat Survey Frequency  %
Formation Pressure Tests  Per well Time Saved: 17.1 hrs

Step 3: Increased drilling performance (ROP)

Input current ROP (ft/hr) and check all that apply for each section to calculate increased ROP, drilling time reduction and total time savings.

ROP Limiter ROP Increase (%) 26 17.5 12.25 8.5
Current ROP ft/hr

Check all that apply and estimate the performance limit

Shock and Vibration /Hard Rock/ Stringers  %
Hole Cleaning/ ECD Management  %
Formation Evaluation Logging Density  %
Directional Control/ Well Placement  %

Potential ROP with WDP 150 132 103.5 78

Drilling Time Reduction (hrs) 0 3 10.1 11.5
Time Saved 24.7

Step 4: Bit/BHA run reduction

Input the information below to calculate trip speed optimization.

Number of Sections with Multiple Bits/BHAs  Per well
Average Trip Time  hrs
Reduction with WDP 50 %

Time Saved 16 hrs

Step 5: Hole cleaning time optimization

Input the information below for each section to calculate the hole cleaning time optimization.

26" 17.5" 12.25" 8.5"
Current Hole Cleaning/Circulation Time (hrs)
optimization with Along String Data (%) 10 10 10 10
Time Reduction (hrs) 0.2 0.6 1.2 1.8

Total Time Reduction hrs 3.8

Step 6: Trip speed optimization

Input the information below to calculate trip speed optimization.

Distance tripped at limited speed  ft
Current Limited Trip Speed  ft/hr
Trip Speed Increase with Real-Time Data 10 %

Time Reduction 2.7 hrs
Total time savings (hours) : 65.3
Total time savings (days) : 2.7
