HOUSTON–Paradigm has released Sysdrill 10, the latest version of its integrated suite of well planning and drilling engineering applications. This major upgrade is integrated with Peloton’s WellView/Masterview corporate database for drilling and well operations, and includes a new jar placement module based on technology acquired from Cougar Drilling Solutions.
The release, developed in collaboration with Sysdrill customers, offers engineering enhancements to the well planning, torque and drag, hydraulics, casing design, cementing, and well control modules. The new jar placement module allows calculation of optimal jar locations based upon the jar operating parameters, drilling parameters, and the well trajectory.
Paradigm said the integration with Peloton offers a complete solution for well planning, drilling engineering, daily reporting and data management throughout the well lifecycle. Drilling engineers can send a fully engineered Sysdrill well design to WellView, and during drilling operations, data captured in MasterView can be used in Sysdrill to perform engineering analysis to monitor drilling and prevent nonproductive time (NPT) events.
