Schlumberger Quick Calc Hydraulics

Quick Calc Hydraulics, also by Schlumberger, is designed to provide a snapshot of the hydraulic horsepower, jet velocity and impact forces created at a jet nozzle orifice, which is installed in a drilling bit. The user keys in his numbers for fluid density, flow rates, TFA and bit diameter before QCH calculates the respective hydraulic parameters for conventional drilling fluids. The calculated results can then be forwarded to anyone in the user's contact list. The Quick Calc Hydraulics app is available for all Apple devices

Well Sentinel

Pumper’s Friend

The Pumper's Friend app is designed to help oilfield pumpers manage their wells more efficiently, using a visual interface that is aimed at making the collection of tank and gauge data easy. Data can be transmitted back to the office, where the tank and gauge data can be plotted. Users rely on a touch screen interface and oilfield images to quickly enter their data by moving dials, rules and levels on the screen. The Pumper's Friend app is available for iPhone.


Halli Burton

eRedbook Mobile

Halliburton's Cementing Tables – known as the RedBook cementing tables – have been an important reference for calculations used in drilling, cementing and completing oil and gas wells.
