Petrobras drillers shift to Landmark tools

Petrobras’ drillers have selected Landmark’s Compass, WellPlan and DIMS for their deep offshore drilling program.

Petrobras has chosen Landmark’s suite of drilling data management and drilling engineering software products and support services for use by its major drilling departments. Petrobras will be using the tools for planning, executing and analyzing its well construction processes.


Landmark president and CEO Andy Lane said, “The software will support Petrobras’ goal of improving efficiency and performance. We look forward to expanding our already well-established working relationship with Petrobras in the area of advanced drilling technologies and services. Some 140 Petrobras engineers have received training in Landmark tools including Compass, WellPlan and the R2003 release of DIMS(TM). Petrobras has also contracted with Landmark for technical support and consulting services.


Luiz Alberto Santos Rocha, Corporate Technology Group, Petrobras said, “Petrobras’ decision to shift to Landmark’s drilling software goes hand in hand with our corporate goal of achieving excellence in drilling. Landmark will help Petrobras maintain its position as one of the top operators in deep and ultra deep waters. Through this strategic partnership, we hope to significantly reduce well construction costs and improve well productivity.”
