Drilling Simulation and Optimization Softwares
23 October 2010
I need softwares for drilling simulation and optimization analyses. I will appreciate suggestions, especially based on direct experience of using such softwares. Independent softwares are prefered, as I know of the available softwares from the top services companies.

Hi - I'm looking for a recommendation for drilling engineering software (direction, torque & drag, casing design, cementing, plug setting, etc.). I'm an independent so I'm not looking for the $10,000+ solution. Must be able to operate in SI units (meters, kPa,kg/m3, etc). Any suggestions based on personal experience. Thanks
