Bringing Integrated Cloud Engineering to well design
Oliasoft was formed in 2015 by energy sector and software professionals dedicated to using the best digital technology to automate the well planning workflow.
The result is Oliasoft WellDesign, an Integrated Cloud Engineering (ICE) platform that transforms the process of building cost efficient, safe and effective well design systems.
WellDesign’s suite of advanced simulation engines automates well planning and operations, dramatically improving efficiency and safety.
The Oliasoft open API lets users build custom solutions by snapping together Oliasoft and third party applications like Lego building blocks. The system can be accessed from any operating system, with any browser, allowing virtual teams to collaborate in real time.
Our technology can also be applied within other industries such as geothermal energy and carbon capture and storage.
We work closely with our partners and customers to design digital solutions that transform industry processes.
We’re growing rapidly. Oliasoft now employs more than 40 highly skilled drilling engineers, software developers, and data scientists – and a sales and marketing team with deep energy sector experience.
We’re developing the WellDesign system in close cooperation with leading research institutions like the Institute For Energy Technology and Norce, and oil majors including Shell, Chevron and Equinor.
We continue to win industry recognition. Oliasoft has raised more than NOK 110 million in private equity and grants, and last year a panel of 140 investors and oil companies voted us ‘Most Promising Startup’ in the Rice Alliance Startup Awards.
