DEPRO is a comprehensive torque, drag and hydraulics program. Using this software, users can reduce many of the risks encountered in drilling and completion operations. DEPRO predicts the limits in the length of a horizontal well based on specific friction factors, recommends rig specifications, and evaluates the required weight to set a packer. For hydraulics, DEPRO covers downhole circulating pressures, surge and swab, equivalent circulation densities (ECD), bit optimization, hole cleaning, and volumetric displacements. Using DEPRO, downhole drilling hydraulic conditions can be fully examined and any potential problems can be identified prior to field execution.

If you are interested in both TADPRO and HYDPRO, then DEPRO is the package for you. It combines all the essential parts of both software programs.
