AMSTERDAM, Netherlands -- Paradigm has launched the Paradigm Sysdrill 2009, well planning and drilling engineering applications.

According to the company, Paradigm Sysdrill 2009 combines advanced well planning and drilling engineering in a single application that allows drilling engineers to plan wells quickly, safely, and accurately to reduce drilling risk and uncertainty. Some of the major benefits of the 2009 release are:

• Significant reduction of data-entry time for engineering analyses

• Advanced input/output interface for loading of third-party data

• Result-driven analysis for quick identification of drilling problems

• Incorporation of geological data for improved planning and visualization

• Office style output for incorporation into the drilling program

Sysdrill 2009 is also tightly integrated with Paradigm Geolog (used for petrophysical log interpretation) to provide a commercially available real-time geosteering solution. Geolog, a contractor-independent geosteering solution, offers workflows to support the fast creation of log-scale geosteering models ahead of drilling, facilitate interactive updates to geosteering models while drilling, and enable re-planning of wells using updated models.
