DGI Announces WellArchitect version 5.0

DGI Introduces Interactive 3D Collision Avoidance and EDM File Importing

RELEASED by Dynamic Graphics, Inc.

ALAMEDA, California (February 2016). Dynamic Graphics, Inc., announces the release of WellArchitect 5.0, the company′s well planning⁄directional drilling software. A major feature of WellArchitect 5.0 is that the 3D, interactive collision-avoidance⁄clearance-scan tools, introduced in WellArchitect 4.1, are now available for no extra charge, without a CoViz 4D license. 3D collision-avoidance visualization allows users to quickly discern areas of concern in the 3D Viewer that would not be readily visible via traditional reports⁄plots, adding a new level of safety awareness. Other major highlights of the release include the ability to import Landmark Compass™ Engineer′s Data Model (EDM) files; perform clearance scans and display data across differing projections; and WITSML Server support⁄monitoring during drilling, while still running automated clearance calculations on projections ahead of the bit. More information about WellArchitect can be found at www.dgi.com or visit Dynamic Graphics at the AAPG, URTeC, and SPE conferences.

″With each release, we offer our clients new workflows and methods to better plan, manage, and execute safe drilling operations. For example, the advanced 3D collision-avoidance tools, now available to all users, allow faster identification and resolution of problem areas in the planning stage, decreasing the risk of collision and increasing nimbleness to adapt to changes while drilling. The ability to monitor and update from a WITSML server during drilling can greatly reduce errors caused by manually entering survey stations. WellArchitect 5.0 continues to push industry forward, and allows our customers to plan⁄drill wells more effectively for a better bottom line.″
Art Paradis, President, DGI
