How Oliasoft WellDesign Compares

WorkflowLegacy softwareIntegrated cloud software
Collection of input data (G&G, PPFG reservoir, targets, lithology etc.)Manual input after export from G&G/Reservoir software (e.g. Excel, text)Open API communication enables seamless data import from other software and databases
Drillability study (Iterate multiple surface locations, trajectories, and designs)Drilling engineers design each well trajectory separately, and iterate designs many times with different template surface location positionsAutomated well trajectories and optimized selection of surface location based on rule set criteria (MD, TVD, DLS, etc.)
Casing & Tubing DesignManual casing design in stand-alone software and calculators. Separate software for casing design and temperature simulations (tubing)Automated casing design based on rule set criteria (MD/TVD, PPFG, material specification, load calculations, safety factors etc.)
Wellbore engineering, drilling mechanics. Torque & drag, hydraulics, surge & swab)Calculators and simulators in separate softwareAll calculations and simulations integrated in the same software
Blowout and kill simulationsNot availableBlowout and dynamic kill (PVT support and transient multi-phase flow simulations) integrated in the software
Carbon, capture and storage (CCS/CCUS)Not availableAbility to simulate CO2 injection wells
User experienceClassic desktop software interface, old design choices often requiring experienced user to use all the functionality. Local installation (on server or computer) of all the different software packages requiredWeb browser based and user friendly interface. Intuitive and circular workflow between design modules. No installation required and all modules, calculators and simulators available in one single interface
Work time in softwareBetween one and two weeks to perform a full well designPotential savings measured at 60-80 % on time spent in the software. A full design can be performed in less than a day
