Welcome to next-gen well planning and directional drilling. 

HawkEye™ takes directional drilling and well planning to the next level with a rich 3D interface, powerful projections and professional reports. The industry has already embraced the cost-saving and time-saving potential of this third-generation program. No rival has the sheer visual impact of HawkEye™ combined with plot and report generating capabilities, as well as advanced geodetics, error modeling and anti-collision. HawkEye™ is on the cutting edge in the industry and has no parallel.


HawkEye and beyond is no longer compatible with Windows XP. Microsoft announced that it will stop supporting XP on April 8, 2014. In the interest of keeping the program light, modern and secure, we have moved towards a more dynamic and powerful database insfrastructure and will no longer support HawkEye in XP. The result is a program that loads 8-40x faster, as well as the ability to integrate the local database installation into central SQL servers.

A Well Planning Tool

HawkEye well planning is template driven. Customized planning templates can be easily created as can customized plot templates. Once created, these templates can be used to greatly increase productivity.

Included with the Well Planning version is a Torque and Drag module.This module allows one to predict the torque and drag characteristics of a given well profile as a function of the variables affect torque and drag. It is easy to use.


A Directional Drilling Tool

A directional drilling company will often be charged will planning the geometry of the well and HawkEye provides powerful tools to allow them to do that very easily.

Drilling engineers use HawkEye to keep up with what is going on, to keep track passively and rest assured of the drilling operation without having to spend hours tracking numbers and visualize things off of lists.

Geologists can incorporate their seismic and geologic graphic representation as overlays and visually see where the well is in reference to where their targets are.

Generally there is a gap between what geologists understand about certain drilling engineering restraints and what a driller understands about certain offset data. The friction between the two groups is alleviated with HawkEye by creating a common visual workspace in which all data is compiled and easily seen. When a geologist’s data is compiled alongside the driller’s information, the two groups can forge an optimal and efficient drilling operation.
