Navigator Software Platform

SmartNAV™ (previously Navigator™)

The SmartNAV™steering, visualization and tracking program provides a step-change improvement in the directional drilling process. Using SmartNAV™ software allows Operators to make faster, more accurate directional decisions and accurately place their wells in the target zone. The SmartNAV™ software platform automatically documents every directional drilling decision, and evaluates directional performance, assigning accountability and identifying areas for improvement.

This platform is an automated directional drilling workflow that serves as a digital advisor, a documenter and a performance tracker. SmartNAV™ software calculates directional drilling instructions to keep the well within the target window, documents all decisions and actions taken and rates performance at each stand against quantifiable KPIs. In addition, the operator can set best practices and rules for each well that are programmed into the SmartNAV™software platform so that its recommendations will always comply with the operator’s set parameters.  

The Navigator™ software platform provides real-time 3-D visualization of the well p th in relation to the planned well trajectory. This 3-D visualization is used on location to understand the situation down hole and is shared with directional and geosteering experts at remote operations centers, who can intervene at any time to avoid problems and optimize performance.
