Well Planning

Complete Well Planning and Engineering Capabilities


Industry leading drilling and engineering software, RigMinder Criterion™, offers a complete directional well planning module with a full suite of 2D and 3D well planning tools including anti-collision. Criterion is incorporated within Innova’s Well Seeker Pro drilling and engineering software.

With a single well plan, you have the ability to generate profiles based on one, or more of the following inputs:

Surface coordinates and elevations; multiple targets (point, 2D, 3D); desired well profile; desired KOP; min/max DLS; desired way points (TVD, coordinates, inclination and azimuth); no go areas (hard lines); anti-collision constraints; standard calculation methods

Well planning features within RigMinder Criterion include:

  • Comprehensive 2D and 3D well planning tools
  • Reporting and plotting: Standard (planned) survey and a/c scan reports with annotations, Standard wall plots
  • Anti-collision scanning using industry leading proximity detection algorithms, multi-well anti-collision scanning capability using: Standard survey instrument IPM’s, Actual and planned offset wellbores, 3D and 2D scanning methods, including minimum distance
  • Ellipse of uncertainty (EOU) calculations using a full range of the latest ISCWSA / MWD and gyro error models
  • Casing design and casing centralizer placement
  • Cement job modeling
  • Bottom Hole Assembly (BHA) Analysis
  • Data transfer. Import and export of data files using standard formats: Delimited ASCII, Spreadsheet cut and paste, WITSML
