Well Control Methods 2.6 for iPad

New in this update: 

– Support for iOS 6;
– Ability to select units also per parameter;
– Ability to import data from other apps (Drilling HydraulicsDrilling SimulatorKick ToleranceLeak-Off Test Simulator and Well Control Simulator);
– Recalculate DP as necessary to surface automatically with bit on bottom when editing BHA or Well Depth;
– Improved printing and email attachments with retina display
– Changed hydrostatic factor from 0.052 to 0.051948 (due the new method to choice units)


Download on the App Store

This application uses the basic calculations of the methods to control oil wells after the occurrence of kick during drilling operations on floating platforms and land rigs.
This app is completely interactive and allows users to define a wide variety of parameters for oil wells and unit system, save data and sharing data files with iPhone version and Mac version using iCloud.

It is can be applied in the oilfield and also help on understanding the methods of the well control.
Well Control Methods:

For Simulation, use the another app “Well Control Simulation“.
