Staying on the right trajectory while drilling is critical to ensure safe and efficient operations.

COMPASS™ software is the industry’s premier application for directional well path planning, survey data management, and anti-collision analysis enabling engineers to steer the bit into the profitable pay zone.

Rock properties, torque and drag, cost, and the location of existing wells can cause potential problems and affect the optimal well trajectory. Designed for both operators and directional drilling contractors, COMPASS directional path planning software can help well construction stay on track.

  • Reach targets & save money: Whether simple or complex, COMPASS software can optimize drilling trajectories quickly based on cost, torque and drag, or anti-collision criteria. When carrying out infill drilling, the software’s well path planner can automatically recommend the most appropriate well to sidetrack, saving days of costly trial and error analysis.

  • Avoid costly incidents: Set up customized anti-collision scans interactively while planning, surveying, or projecting ahead. Set up warnings and automatic email notifications to alert users when well paths converge on company-specified minimum criteria. Along with hard-copy reports, COMPASS software produces spider, ladder, 3D proximity, and traveling cylinder plots to provide the data needed to drill safely.

  • Reduce well-planning cycle time: COMPASS software includes data level integration with Halliburton Landmark’s Engineer’s Data Model™ (EDM™) database and cross-domain workflow integration with OpenWorks® database. This allows each member of the asset team to share common data and provide the feedback required to improve planning cycle times and operational performance.

  • See what’s occurring in real time: For the most accurate representation of the wellbore to total depth (TD), COMPASS software automatically computes a look-ahead plan based on real-time survey data, which can be used to help determine the impact of the current actual trajectory with respect to operations when the well is drilled to TD.
