HXR Drilling Services

Extended Reach Drilling Engineering Services

Extended Reach Drilling Engineering Services

HXR provides complete well engineering and design services, tailored to our clients’ specific well trajectory goals and rock stress properties. We provide detailed mechanical Feasibility and Well Design studies for extended reach, complex, and horizontal drilling projects.

Geomechanics/Geopressure Modeling Services

Geomechanics/Geopressure Modeling Services

HXR’s Geomechanics Advisors have extensive global experience in delivering detailed 1D/3D pore pressure and advanced wellbore stability models for our clients’ drilling projects worldwide.

Wellsite Services


Onsite engineering and Well surveillance (“Hole Condition monitoring”) service, utilizing our proprietary ERDPro® engineering software, providing T&D, Hydraulics, and swab/surge trend analysis, as well as wellsite engineering. Constant feedback loop with client operations team and HXR support staff allows for results-focused input. Includes fluids and directional trajectory monitoring, updates to pre-drill engineering plans, basic pore pressure and wellbore stability monitoring.>/p>


Add-On Advanced Optimization service utilizing MSE/DSE in RT, as well as xplotting with other variables, such as drilling fluids parameters, geologic formations, etc., for future well planning upgrades. Utilizes the rigs standard technology package as well as HXR’s ERDPro® engineering software.


Building upon our ERD engineering and Geomechanics services, MIN-NPT™ methodically breaks down every step of the drilling/casing operation into individual steps, and identifies the limiters involved with each operation. Disparities between the best and worst performing rigs in the drilling fleet can be identified and addressed, allowing for operational efficiency to be progressed
throughout the entire drilling operation.


HXR’s pore pressure prediction service provides RT modeling and trend evaluation, allowing for the operations team to be alerted to any changes that could endanger the safety or overall success of the well. Can be run standalone, or in addition to HXR’s DrillsIGHT™ or DrillsIGHT-HD™ RRD engineering service.


Combined Geomechanics and Geopressure/pore pressure prediction service. RT monitoring of all geologic LWD data allows for updates of geomechanics model. Run in RT at the rigsite or in an RTOC, HXR’s Geomechanics specialists work with the Geomechanics modeling geologists on staff, as well as with the clients geomechanics team.

Real-Time Operations Center (RTOC)


HXR can provide all of their wellsite services from our clients Real-Time Operations Center, or from the HXR offices. some minor rig equipment upgrades are occasionally needed, and the RT rig instrumentation and lWD links to shore need to be capable of RT use.
