The prevalence of extended-reach directional wells today means that pipes are exposed to greater amounts of torque and drag (T&D). If the torque and drag are not evaluated, it can result in stuck pipe, pipe failures, and costly fishing jobs. With the number of extended-reach wells increasing, torque and drag modeling has become an essential process during the planning phase of drilling and casing running.

TADPRO is a comprehensive software package that accurately predicts torque and drag, removing several risks involved in drilling and completion operations. TADPRO helps users understand the visible, see the invisible and obtain a higher percentage of successful drilling and tripping operations.
