DSD - Torque and Drag

The increase in the number of drilled ultra-extended reach wells and complex geometries requires contact points and wellbore friction to be calculated with greater accuracy. Torque and drag problems are very common during drilling, completion and workover operations. DSD – Torque and Drag module can be used to calculate torque and drag during planning, drilling and post-drilling.
