Good question! HXR is an acronym for Horizontal eXtended Reach.

And what do we do?

HXR is a U.S.-based drilling engineering and technology company that specializes in Extended Reach and Deepwater Drilling. We provide complete well design and feasibility studies, rigsite-based drilling engineering and supervision, advanced pore pressure modeling and analysis, and real-time wellbore stability and geomechanics services. In addition, we provide ERD training courses for supervisory personnel.

HXR has developed two of the most advanced engineering software suites available today, ERDPro® and DEEPWATERPro®. ERDPro® is our advanced well design software that is tailored to horizontal and extended reach wells, both on and off shore. DEEPWATERPro® is our pore pressure prediction software that is specifically designed for ERD wells offshore, using multiple velocity stacks along the deviated wellbore.
