Well Trajecory Engineering
Oliasoft WellDesign trajectory module is a full Survey Data Management tool, capable of designing well trajectories and monitoring of actual real time well paths.
The module supports all main design options for building well trajectories, including the following:
- Specification of MD, Inc, Az
- BT3 (constant build)
- DT1 (hold tangent, specify MD/TVD)
- Bezier (specify target coordinates and target inc/az) (varying dogleg)
All standard well path and positioning mathematics are supported, such as Constant Turn Rate method, Constant Curvature method, Radius of Curvature method, Minimum Curvature method, Tangential method and Balanced Tangential method.
Oliasoft supports geodetic coordinates and UTM map references to surface and target locations with full exports to directional drilling plans.
Error modelling and Anti-Collision functionality is based on the latest ISCWSA mathematical formulas.
Additional error models can be programmed by users as an integrated part of the survey methodology.
Additionally, we support linear, quadratic, and higher-order Bezier curves for optimization and automation of “path to target” with continuously varying dogleg, a possibility when drilling with wired pipe and rig robotics.
