Drilling Optimization Services


We perform optimization through BHA composition, drilling parameters (WOB, Torque and RPM), well design and other informations our clients have. All these data are treated by integration into multibody dynamics and finite element technologies, providing a fast response in terms of torque, bending moment, fatigue, and torsion in each BHA’s element.

Our simulations prior to actual drilling operation compute 3D drilling dynamics. Available MWD data is used to tune simulations and additionally provide 3D animated downhole dynamics. In other words, we “translate” Vibration Data, for example, into parameters that everyone involved in drilling technology can understand.

Real-time monitoring and dynamic analysis are employed as a means to understanding what really happens in downhole. We provide complete reports about BHA and simulate new configurations as our clients want to decrease drilling time and mitigate risks.

MWF Services has experienced engineers in drilling optimizations and reliability. Aerospace engineering knowledge was brought by MWF to the market of Oil & Gas in order to achieve higher levels of technological advance.

Drilling Optimization Service is supported by a variety of innovative tools, which have been developed and widely used by us. It includes 3D Scanner, in memory vibration tool and Wireless Geolograph (our so called GW).



FVSUB is a dynamic analyzer tool. It measures shocks (acceleration peaks), vibration (continuously varying accelerations). The tool has the shape of a float valve and can be installed in several places of a drillstring. The measurements are taken along the three main axes of a drillstring and stored in memory. All stored data can be retrieved in the surface after downhole operations. Through fast acquisition rates and advanced signal processing algorithms, reliable frequency domain plots are promptly delivered to help customers analyze and avoid undesired modes such as stick-slip and backward whirl.

The FVSUB data allows a referred optimization of drilling performance, reducing risk of damage and increasing the Rate Of Penetration (ROP). The FVSUB may substitute a float valve with no limitations to operate close to underreamers while allowing activation balls up to 2.5” diameter.

GW – Wireless Geolograph is a special sensor developed and ruggedized by MWF Services to withstand travelling block tripping. The main advantage of GW is that it is a wireless sensor. The GW sensor can be placed on every part of travelling block: Top Drive, Swivel or Catarina, for example. The data transmission can be transmitted in real-time to LWD trailer or cabin.



GW – Wireless Geolograph demonstrated in field the following advantages:

  1. Downtime reduction.
  2. HSE, because it has no cable.
  3. Easy maintenance.
  4. There is no need for calibration.
  5. It can be located on each part of travelling block.
  6. We could measure ROP and tripping velocity.
