Landmark, a Halliburton (HAL) business line and provider of exploration and production software, has released of EDT 5000.14 (Engineer’s Desktop), an upgrade to its integrated suite of well construction applications.
The new EDT delivers added functionality by introducing the CasingWear application, which was developed in response to industry demand for more accurate modeling of casing integrity, as well as updates industry standard applications WELLCAT, StressCheck, COMPASS, OpenWells and WellPlan to reflect the latest operational best practices and regulations.
EDT 5000.14 delivers improved usability, namely output-driven-input methodology and a simplified installer. Output-driven-input decreases the technology adoption curve as users need only know their goal—not the steps in the application necessary to achieve it.
“With the industry facing severe pressure to lower costs per well and manage risk, EDT responds with added functionality and improved usability to allow engineers to better design, execute and optimize well construction operations,” said Nagaraj Srinivasan, Landmark vice president.
Integration among the different engineering applications helps reduce technical and operational risk as an entire drilling department works from the same information and scientific models. The EDT suite is powered by Landmark’s DecisionSpace Platform.
