One Hundred Percent

"I'll take fifty percent efficiency to get one hundred percent loyalty."
- Samuel Goldwyn (American Producer)

It’s well known that time and cost overruns are very common in the oil and gas industry. As a matter of fact, most projects deal with one or both problems, yet there is an alternative: the industry could reduce costs and accelerate projects by implementing advanced models that bring good benefits and are very efficient.

Being efficient means achieving maximum productivity with minimum wasted efforts and/or expenses.

For a company to have an effective way in its productivity there has to be a change that influences its efficiency; a change that identifies the difference between doing the right thing and doing things right.

In the beginning process of developing a software here at PVI, we put into consideration what is effective for our clients but more so, what is efficient. We think of what can be done to make our clients' workload lighter yet progressive. With our software, casing wear can be predicted, centralizer placement can be optimized, torque and drag can be calculated, mud reporting can be simpler, and many other things can be performed. One of our priorities is to produce a software that gives our clients their desired or intended result.

A software that’s efficient is a software capable of doing processes that save time, money and efforts. That's a good characteristic to have in a software, because it helps the companies that use it to be effective at getting results.

Instead of just striving to design an effective software, we strive to design a software that is efficient at being effective. Similar to what Samuel Goldwyn stated, instead of taking 50% of efficiency, we intend to take 100% efficiency to get 100% of loyalty from our satisfied customers.

Visual Thinking Equals Creativity

Logical and visual thinking are two different mental groups that affect the way we view things.

The logical thinking involves analysis, advancement from simple to complex, organization of information and continuous reasoning. This group is influenced by hearing and language and a perception of time.

In contrast, visual thinking involves synthesis, an intuitive comprehension of complex systems, coordinated processing of concepts, inductive reasoning from the whole aspect to the small aspects, use of imagination and generation of ideas by combining existing facts in new ways, in other words, creative thinking. This group is influenced by visualization and images and a perception of space.

For the visual thinking group, concepts are rapidly understood when presented with visuals. Once the spatial thinking group has an image of a concept and sees how the information fits with what they already know, their learning ability is permanent. It’s their best learning style. To them, images are their main motivation and it is how they experience success in their own way. With this in mind, here at Pegasus Vertex, Inc. we put a lot of effort into our software development to give our clients a sophisticated visual experience of what goes on below the ground and under the sea. We use diverse visualizations, such as schematics and graphs that provide a live feed of the operations.

Highly Visual | PVI Drilling Software

Visual thinking is one of our main focuses when creating the software.


Because visuals are a more effective way in understanding the goals of the project, whether it is mud reporting, drilling hydraulics, casing wear prediction, cementing jobs, wellbore trajectory, tubing movement or split flow analysis. With creativity we give our customers the software that fits their needs.

Tennis Match and Drilling Software

We just saw the curtain of 2013 Australian Open down. For 2 weeks, the year’s first Grand Slam showcased the top players from around the world. One of the most impressive matches is between Serbian Novak Djokovic, the world no. 1 and Swiss player Wawrinka, in quarterfinal. The match is a zig-zag, corner-to-corner grueling fight, which lasted more than 5 hours. At the end, Djokovic, cornered by Wawrinka’s deep and low shot, managed to pull the trigger and crafted a wide-angled passing shot. The score board froze at 12:10am in 5th set tiebreak: Novak earned a spot in semi-final. He eventually came out victorious and won the title.

For viewers like us, the longer the match, the more interesting the game. For players like Novak and Wawrinka, playing the heated match like that requires tremendous physical and mental strengths. Their strategy is probably not to play prolonged match unless necessary. It is sad that only one can be the winner.

Fortunately, not every one of us needs to fight like that. In our industry, we have developed a market place or system in which everyone is doing his/her job while depends others to support them. Everyone supports someone else and gets help from others.

Our business is developing advanced drilling software, which helps drilling engineers and managers to make informed technical decision, quickly and wisely. With the right software tools like HYDPRO (drilling hydraulics) and MUDPRO (mud reporting), engineers can spend less time in calculation or report, and more time on critical matters or just relax, knowing that the technical issues are taken care of.

MUDPRO, since its debut 3 years ago, has helped hundreds of mud engineers in their daily morning reporting. It takes less than 10 minutes to create daily report (if inventory is done), and creating end-of-well recap is instantaneously. Did I mention well comparison? It is just a click away.

When it comes to drilling software in general or MUDPRO for mud reporting, using PVI’s software is as easy as Game, Set and Match.
