Innova Engineering is where the Innova suit of products began. Grounded in Innova’s outstanding drilling expertise, Innova Engineer provides an all-encompassing suite of tools designed to expertly plan and execute your drilling operations. Developed by engineers for engineers. With exceptional functionality and an intuitive yet powerful interface, Innova Engineering delivers an innovative and cost-effective solution for Operators and Service Providers alike.

Our talented team at Innova comprises industry-leading experts who have leveraged their vast experience to build a solution like no other. Our emphasis on providing a high-value service translates into more than just superior software – it’s about delivering solutions that solve real world problems and delivers enhanced business performance and operational success for our customers.

Torque & Drag

Innova Engineering offers cutting-edge capabilities to address drilling challenges. It incorporates the most recent soft string model enhanced with a stiffness correction factor and enables modeling of viscous drag, buckling friction, and contact surface correction.

Innova Engineering provides both conservative (unloading) and standard (loading) buckling models, while an elemental view is available for all computation results. It facilitates calculations of sinusoidal and helical buckling limits and fully supports casing, liner, drilling assemblies, and even complex 3D directional wells.

Friction factor sensitivity can be examined for an unlimited number of friction factors or isolated calculations, with models available for casing flotation, drill string fill, and the effects of bow spring centralizers on torque and drag.

Innova Engineering can predict expected pipe stretch, torque-induced pipe twist, side forces, casing wear, and drill string fatigue. Designed to integrate real-time data, displaying it in conjunction with calculated data, and offers insights into both actual and apparent WOB and overpull calculations, making it easier for operators to visualize the forces experienced at the bit based on surface readings.

We’re especially proud of our anti-collision that stands out as one of the best in industry. Innova’s advanced survey correction capabilities significantly improves positional uncertainty, lowering operational risk.

Within Innova Engineering, clients gain access to a wealth of essential tools allowing anti-collision risks to be easily evaluated. These visualisations allow engineers to monitor and analyse critical information in real-time and provide alerts to those making the operational decisions.
