Paradigm sales to Pertra, Maersk. New Sysdrill and Geolog releases

Drilling and well planning gets automation and WITSML interface. Geolog sees workflow enhancements.

Paradigm has released new versions of its Sysdrill drilling and well planning suite and Geolog, its well log and petrophysical package. Enhancements in Sysdrill V 3.0 include automated well planning, casing wear prediction, well control, volume and packer calculations. The new release also increases interoperability with interfaces for Halliburton’s DEX and WITSML.


Paradigm director of well planning and drilling Robert Innes said, ‘Market analysis shows that poorly integrated applications are a leading cause of dissatisfaction among well planners and drilling engineers. Sysdrill’s new level of integration enables faster, easier use and productivity-driven workflows.’

Pertra, Maersk

This month Paradigm announced a global Sysdrill sale to Norwegian Pertra AS. Pertra’s Terje Pedersen said ‘We evaluated drilling software from several vendors, and Sysdrill was found to be superior to the competition.’ In a separate announcement, Maersk Oil has selected Paradigm’s Geolog as its corporate standard for petrophysical analysis.

Geolog Beta

Version 6.7 of Geolog was on show at the SPE ATCE. The new version includes enhanced workflow creation, recording and play back. Also included is 3D model support for geosteering. A beta release of Geolog 6.7 is available for testing. Roll out is ‘real soon now.’
