COMPASS™ Software

March 19-20, Aberdeen, United Kingdom

Directional Well Design

COMPASS software quickly performs optimization of simple or complex trajectories, based on cost, torque and drag, or anti-collision, and helps the user determine the most appropriate well to sidetrack when carrying out infill drilling. This two-day course is a comprehensive, hands-on overview of the Landmark COMPASS directional well design software application. It provides a firm foundation in the COMPASS data structure, and the Engineer’s Data Model™ (EDM).

The course is intended for rig site surveyors, drilling engineers, and well planners. After completing this course, the participant should be able to create new well locations, enter and check survey quality, evaluate different planning options, and perform well path collision avoidance by computing the distance between well paths.


CasingSeat™ Software

March 21, Aberdeen, United Kingdom

Preliminary Casing Design

CasingSeat™ software is a graphics-based tool for accurately determining casing setting depth and viable casing and wellbore schemes. When used in the early phases of the casing design process, it can lead to significant savings on the cost of tubulars.

The course is intended for engineers. After completing this course, the participant should be familiar with fundamental casing design principles, relevant formation parameters, preliminary casing design criteria, data entry, rating design criteria, top-down and bottom-up methods, as well as documenting and analyzing the results.


StressCheck™ Software

March 22-23, Aberdeen, United Kingdom

Basic Tubular Design and Analysis 

StressCheck™ software enables quick, systematic, and accurate evaluation of casing wear limits, minimum-cost design solutions, comprehensive tri-axial design, and working-stress design for burst, collapse, and axial installation and service-life loads. With StressCheck software tools, it’s easy to complete designs using the minimum-cost design algorithm or the “click-and-drag” design element.

The course is intended for engineers. After completing this two-day course, the participant should be able to quickly bring themselves up-to-speed using StressCheck for their casing design needs. It introduces fundamental casing design principles, the equations used to calculate casing ratings, design criteria and data entry, casing design and design checks, and documenting and analyzing results. 


WellPlan™ Software

March 26-28, Aberdeen, United Kingdom

Using WellPlan™ Software

WellPlan™ software is the latest evolution in more than 25 years of innovations in well construction information solutions. It extends and simplifies the science through dramatic advancements in ease-of-use and data visualization. Integrated with Engineer’s Desktop™ (EDT) and Engineer’s Data Model™ (EDM) applications, it provides a complete well engineering software tool kit that is unparalleled in the industry.

The course is intended for field and office engineers. After completing this three-day course, the participant should be able to enter and analyze data using the WellPlan application modules. While the course covers the theory used in developing the applications, the emphasis is on how to use the WellPlan software. Specific workflows to be covered include drilling, running the liner, and cementing the liner.


WELLCAT™ Software

April 16-19, Aberdeen, United Kingdom

Temperature Dependent Tubular Design 

WELLCAT™ software provides precise solutions for both wellbore analysis and integrated casing and tubing design. It calculates accurate downhole temperature and pressure profiles, which can be used for pipe-body movement and casing and tubing load analysis. This is an essential tool for companies operating in high-pressure, high-temperature (HP/HT) deepwater or heavy-oil drilling and production environments.

The course is intended for production/completion and drilling engineers. It provides detailed insight into the use of the five WELLCAT modules. After completing this four-day course, the participant should be able to understand tubular design fundamentals, the complexities of nodal thermal analysis, how to define a well in WELLCAT, and the impact of time and chronology of events upon the tubular design. Participants should also be able to identify equations used to calculate pipe ratings, define and understand how to inter-link operations and loads used for temperature simulations and stress analyses, respectively, prepare and print reports, and understand and interpret results of thermal and stress analysis.
