Drilling assembly schematic
S-Drill is aimed at Drilling Engineers, Drilling Optimisation Engineers, Drilling Supervisors, Mud Engineers, Directional Drillers, Well Planners, those running downhole tools and anyone who is interested in the technical aspects of drilling and completion activities.
A wide range of scenarios and downhole tools are supported including the following:
Slant Rig / HDD
Sub-Sea / Riserless
Floated/Partially filled strings
Friction Reduction Tools
Swivel Tool, Agitators
Centraliser Stand-off / Placement
Diverters / Split Flow
Cuttings Removal Tools
Cementing / Fluid Displacement
Circulating Temperature & HPHT fluid properties
Results are presented in fully customisable plots, tables and 3D view in any combination of units.
Import and export of data to Excel and MS Office is available. Rapidly generate output to PDF is in pre-defined reports.
User interface and reports are fully translated into Spanish and Russian. Other languages available on request.
Torque & Drag
S-Drill's Torque and Drag model allows users to analyse tension, torque, stress and buckling of drilling, casing and completion assemblies including the influence of hydraulics forces.

Cementing results showing surface and downhole pressures with time.
Run the simulation in Multi-Fluid Dynamic mode to analyse fluid displacement activities such as cementing, wash trains and sweeps.
Calculate the optimum centraliser spacing required to achieve a desired stand-off.
Centraliser placement results showing required spacing to achieve stand-off.
Keep track of well control equipment status, rig activities, costs and drilling progress and produce well design and drilling montages.

The sensitivity analysis module provides a number of tools to support drilling optimisation. It runs a full simulation with varying parameters to produce a range of results. Incorporate drilling data to calibrate and compare with modelled values to help identify drilling issues such as poor hole cleaning and differential sticking.
