A system for 3-Geo and well planning purpose, well bore stability, operational geology, pore pressure and advanced log and well data handling for drilling and well planning.  

The contract includes training and technology transfer in particular for the Mexican deepwater market.

The PFAS system is used World Wide by operators and service companies to plan and drill advanced wells. The biggest single user is the Norweigian Oil Company; Hydro, drilling some of the longest horizontal wells in the world (Troll field) and deepwater, and HTHP prospects in both the Norwegian sector and internationally.
