Paradigm has launched the the latest version of its integrated suite of well planning and drilling engineering applications, Sysdrill® 10. This major upgrade is integrated with Peloton’s WellView®/Masterview® corporate database for drilling and well operations, and includes a new jar placement module based on technology acquired from Cougar Drilling Solutions.
The release, developed in collaboration with Sysdrill customers, offers significant engineering enhancements to the product’s existing well planning, torque & drag, hydraulics, casing design, cementing and well control modules. The new jar placement module allows calculation of optimal jar locations based upon the jar operating parameters, drilling parameters, and the well trajectory.
The integration with Peloton offers a complete solution for well planning, drilling engineering, daily reporting and data management throughout the well lifecycle. Drilling engineers can send a fully engineered Sysdrill well design to WellView, and during drilling operations, data captured in MasterView can be used in Sysdrill to perform engineering analysis to monitor drilling and prevent NPT events.

“Sysdrill 10 allows drilling engineers to perform advanced engineering analysis with minimum effort, in a single, integrated application, thus saving valuable time.” said Robert Innes, director for well planning and drilling. “This is particularly the case through the integration with Peloton, where drilling engineers avoid re-entering data and focus on ensuring the well can be drilled safely and successfully. The incorporation of Cougar’s Jar Placement program, which can be licensed by all Paradigm customers, demonstrates that Sysdrill provides a solid platform that can be easily extended to incorporate new engineering algorithms.”
“As Cougar continues to expand its business in North America, Middle East and Asia, and has selected Sysdrill as its global standard for well planning and engineering, it was the logical platform for Cougar engineers to deliver accurate jar placement recommendations to our customers.” said Andi Rizen, Director Business Development & Optimized Well Delivery, Cougar Drilling Solutions.
