The phrase “The Whole Package” is defined as:
- All the elements constituting a whole or occurring as a unit.
- Something or someone that possesses a full set of relevant characteristics.
This expression is often used to describe something that is of good choice; something that has everything that one needs for a specific matter or something that possesses all that one is searching for.
With all the advancements technology has achieved, it is marvelous how it keeps evolving in ways that are far beyond describable. Now you can have computer programs that can do multitasks; for instance, a software that possesses a full set of relevant characteristics for a specific need. It is literally getting the whole package in a small package.
Let’s talk about one good example of this.
DEPRO, a software developed by PVI, is a complete torque, drag and hydraulics program that combines all the essential components of our TADPRO and HYDPRO software.
For torque and drag, this software eliminates and diminishes a lot of the risks in drilling, completion or any particular tool operations. It also performs comprehensive hydraulics calculations so that the downhole drilling hydraulic conditions can be examined, and potential problems can be identified in advance before field execution.
Among its many features DEPRO also includes:
- Soft and stiff string models
- Buckling criteria
- Drilling, back reaming, rotating and tripping operations
- Minimum WOB to buckle
- Stress calculations
- 2D/3D animations
- Liner cementing job
- Field data comparisons on torque, drag, ECD and SPP
- Fixed flow rate analysis
- Surge and swab
- Hydraulics sensitivity analysis
This is a good package for service companies and operators in which they can find everything that they need for their jobs to be done all in one place. In other words they can have the whole package in a small package.
