  • MUDPRO+ - Advanced Drilling Mud Reporting Model Version 3.4.2 Released on March 15, 2021

    In this version, we have added an option to allow users to take into consideration the influence of annulus eccentricity on hydraulics. We have also updated the algorithm of the estimating influence of RPM, ROP and TVD.

  • CEMPRO+ - Cementing Job Model Version 5.4.0 Released on March 3, 2021

    This new version has an improved model of in-pipe displacement efficiency. The advanced model considers different flow regimes including flow segregation, and flow instabilities. The improved version also has an update in the foam model to allow predicting foam changes during shut-in or closing in the annulus.

  • CentraDesign - Centralizer Placement Model Version 8.0.0 Released on January 5, 2021

    This new version helps users design the centralizer placement for all casings in a well. It calculates the placement of bow spring and/or rigid centralizers as well as any combination of centralizers for certain patterns. At the meantime, users could design the centralizer placement using any combination of holes, pipe sizes and centralizers of one or more types.

  • Applied Well Cementing Engineering Book, 1st Edition, Coming Soon March 31st, 2021

    Our own president Gefei Liu will be releasing the book “Applied Well Cementing Engineering” alongside contributing authors with an abundance of experience. This books focuses on the basic and advances, identifies challenges and implements solutions in well cementing engineering. Other topics within the book include job simulation, displacement efficiency, and hydraulics.

  • BHAPRO - BHA Mechanics Model Version 2.1.0 Released on June 4, 2020

    The newly upgraded BHAPRO helps users to optimize BHA design by identifying failure conditions/locations, critical rotary speed, and the high displacement locations during vibration.

  • MUDPRO Next Generation, Coming Soon June 2021

    Bringing an all-new design to our innovated mud reporting solution in a time of social distancing. MUDPRO Next Generation encompasses machine learning, dazzling visualization an at-a-glance dashboard and much more to improve daily mud reporting. Stay tuned for the release date!

  • TMPRO - Tubing Movement Model Version 4.0.0 Released on February 25, 2020

    The newly upgraded TMPRO allows users to analyze both tubing and packer performance for single or multiple packers in various operation scenarios in one run.

  • CEMPRO+ Certification Program October 30, 2019

    A certification will be issued upon the completion of the CEMPRO+ training course. This industry-recognized certificate will differentiate you with skills and knowledge in well cementing job modeling. Earning this certification demonstrates to employers and perspective clients that you have the technical skills to maximize what CEMPRO+ can do.

  • DEPRO - Torque, Drag and Hydraulics Model, Version 4.4.0 Released on October 29, 2019

    This updated DEPRO allows oscillating vibration tool (OVT) placed on a pipe, it makes modeling for a dampening effect for friction reduction from vibration inducing tools much easier.

  • CEMLab - Cement Lab Data Management System, Version 3.0.1 Released on October 9, 2019

    At PVI, we believe that spacer design and tests are crucial to the cement laboratory job. High-quality spacers can enhance the drilling fluid removal process, provide a stronger cement bond, and prevent fluid contamination, thus ensuring a successful cementing job. We are proud to announce that spacer design modeling has been added to our laterst CEMLab.

  • CWPRO - Casing Wear Prediction Model, Version 6.0.0 Release on October 2, 2019

    Our all-new CWPRO is a leap from calculation features to interface appearance! It is now integrated with more comprehensive calculation features, detailed results display, customized reports and ribbon bar menu UI. CWPRO relieves the engineers from dealing with all the abundant casing wear calculations and complicated logics. With the new integrated features in CWPRO v6.0.0, it simplifies the arduous task required by the engineers daily to ensure the casing integrity.

  • CleanMax – Wellbore Cleanup Model, Version 2.2.0 Release on November 12, 2019

    PVI added 2 new features to CleanMax, (1) spacer train design and (2) flow split with 2 circulation subs. To strike a balance between annular velocity and coverage, flow regime, the spacer train design window helps users quickly calculate fluid volumes in sequence with visualization of all fluids in annulus. The complex of flow splits with 2 circulation subs is solved with the 2nd new feature. The benefits of lower pump pressure and ECD and reasonable annular flow rate in lower wellbore sections are shown in the table and wellbore schematic.

  • MudManager – Drilling Fluid Data Management System, New Release on August 14, 2019

    This online software helps user to upload, transmit, and download drilling fluid reports and information with great efficiency anywhere, anytime! Other than that, supervisors can create and manage a company-wide master product database for distribution to field engineers using MUDPRO+.

  • Dr. DE - Drilling Engineering Toolbox, New Release on July 2, 2019

    This upgraded Dr. DE now has more than 190 field-proven drilling engineering functions, ranging from drilling engineering fundamentals to advanced well path designs and 3D wellbore visualizations. Some of the new features in Dr. DE include: (1)Added 9 new functions such as Annular Shear Rate and Triaxial Stress, (2)Upgraded to new ribbon style user interface, (3)Added report preview feature, (4)Able to export report to 10 different formats such as PDF, Excel, Word, etc., and (5)Redesigned tubular, centralizer and fluid database.
