  • BHAPRO – Bottom Hole Assembly Model, new release on December 2018

    PVI has developed BHAPRO, a software that calculates the stress and deformation of Bottom Hole Assembly (BHA) components under complex downhole loading conditions. Its advanced features include automatic detection of contact points between BHA and wellbore, and identification of critical rotary speeds.

  • UBDPRO – Underbalanced Drilling Hydraulics Model, new release on November 2018

    The new version of UBDPRO was released in November 2018 with a new foam quality dependent viscosity model. In this model, when the foam quality increases to a critical foam quality in the low quality regime, the apparent viscosity increases dramatically; When the foam quality increases from this critical foam quality in the high quality regime, the apparent viscosity decreases dramatically.

  • Dr.DE Lite - Drilling Engineering Toolbox App, new release on November 2018

    Our new version of Dr. DE Lite App has added a Mechanical Specific Energy (MSE) feature! MSE is the energy required to remove a unit volume of rock. With the MSE feature included in our free Dr. DE Lite app, users are able to better optimize the drilling efficiency by minimizing the MSE. Download your free upgraded Dr. DE Lite today!

    Designed for cementing engineers, CEMSheet is a cheat sheet containing more than 2,000 data related to cementing engineering, ranging from pipe capacity, pump output to additives.

  • MUDSheet - A MUDPRO/HYDPRO Companion, new release on July 2018

    MUDSheet is a cheat sheet containing more than 2,000 data of drilling engineering, ranging from pipe capacity, pump output to mud additives. The most essential information from engineering handbooks, SPE textbooks, API Standards, IADC manuals, has been distilled into MUDSheet, a must-have resource for every mud engineer and technician to get the job done accurately and efficiently.

  • LCPRO - Lost Circulation Model

    PVI developed LCPRO, a software model that calculates the dynamic downhole hydraulics and temperature profiles when lost circulation occurs. Its advanced features include the flow of multiple fluids when treatment material is pumped.
