  • 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, New Version Coming Soon

    PVI is adding 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.
