Landmark Graphics Introduces The Engineer's Desktop

Landmark Graphics Corporation has released of The Engineer's Desktop™, a new integration platform for drilling and completions and production operations workflows. The Engineer's Desktop provides a comprehensive suite of well design, real-time operations, field surveillance and economic tools in a common data management environment. For the first time, E&P companies can now easily integrate engineering workflows, enabling them to reduce planning cycle time, drill better, safer wells and optimize well and overall field production.

"As the digital oil field becomes a reality, integration of key workflows across drilling, production and economics will enable customers to optimize management of their field operations," said Andy Lane, president, Landmark. "The release of The Engineer's Desktop, establishes Landmark as the leader in providing integrated drilling, completions and production engineering applications to the E&P industry. We are now able to uniquely meet customer needs for streamlined engineering work processes, making Landmark the only company to offer this breadth of data coverage and application capabilities on one integrated platform."

The Engineer's Desktop combines the capability of the Drilling Desktop™, released last year, with production and economics. This leading technology brings together for the first time, drilling, field operations, have never been tied together before, yet never has it been more critical that operators maximize return on their investments as they venture into more hostile environments or push to achieve maximum recovery from mature fields.

The Drilling Desktop, a critical component of the Engineer's Desktop, has new capabilities that allow cross-domain analysis enabling drilling engineers to achieve better wellbore placement, greater levels of efficiency and reduced drilling costs. The Drilling Desktop features powerful new data management, visualization, engineering and query capabilities. This unique functionality will help deliver superior well performance through integrated engineering, reporting and analysis work processes, while also driving significant time saving efficiencies to well operations teams across the enterprise.

"The Engineer's Desktop is extending value across the E&P digital value chain, bringing a much needed integration to engineering and operations, in the same way that OpenWorks® and its supporting technologies succeeded in improving the workflows of the geoscience community," said Murray Roth, executive vice president, Systems and Marketing. "The Engineer's Desktop, with its real-time links, will enable operators to drill safer, more effective wellbores, track production, reduce well downtime, promote rapid intervention design, and validate decisions through economic analysis, thus driving overall well performance and field profitability."
