Well Planning

WellPlan Services uses Landmark’s COMPASS directional well planning software to generate well plans. This is regarded as the oil and gas industry’s leading software application for generating directional and horizontal well plans. WellPlan Services provides 2D and 3D directional and horizontal designs with wall plots, torque and drag calculations, and anti-collisions in combination with our other services. 

Please visit our Instagram page for a list of directional well planning examples and illustrations.

Directional Drilling

We provide directional drilling well planning for the oil and gas industry. Whether a build and hold or S type drilling profile is required, let WellPlan Services help you reach your target.

Horizontal Drilling

With oil and gas companies continually trying to maximize their reservoir exposure, the need for the directional drilling contractor to provide reliable well planning services is a must. llow WellPlan Services to assist.

Multilateral Wellbores

Some development fields have found multilateral wellbores are the best option for an operator to develop their assets. WellPlan Services can assist with this type of directional well planning.


When it comes to drilling safety, the single most important function in directional drilling well planning is anti-collision. WellPlan Services can provide a detailed anti-collision print out report and/or spider, ladder, 3D proximity and traveling cylinder plot.

Sidetrack Proposals

In times of emergency, it’s sometimes necessary to design a directional sidetrack well plan. Our team is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to help with meeting your needs.

Re-Entry Planning

Trying into an existing vertical, directional or horizontal well requires the well planner to choose the correct survey station from the existing well to tie onto and provide the client with the best possible directional drilling solution.

Pad Locations

When multiple directional wells are drilled from the same lease or pad location, attention must be given to each of the wellpath designs to maintain proper wellbore spacing to avoid problems that could arise from collisions. WellPlan Services is equipped with the latest collision avoidance tools.

Field Designs

Developing fields require precise wellbore spacing and in some cases boundary objectives must be met. WellPlan Services can work with your team to help achieve your development goals.

Heavy Oil Well Planning

SAGD (Steam Assisted Gravity Drainage) & CSS (Cyclical Steam Simulation) horizontal well planning designs are some of the most intricate designs in the directional drilling industry and require a specific technical well planning ability. WellPlan Services has the experience both in designing, optimizing and engineering of such horizontal pairs, pads and fields. Whether well planning infills or redrills, WellPlan Services’ proactive approach will help mitigate potential risk with collision related issues and to aid in increased production.

Well Plotting

All WellPlan Services directional well plans come standard with a directional or horizontal drawing. In addition to the standard well planning drawings and/or wall plots, we can provide custom layouts to match the requirements of the client. Whether the directional client is looking for their own particular color scheme and/or design layout, WellPlan Services can provide a directional drilling plotting solution.

Please take a tour of the site, in particular the Services section and click on some of the links and you can find examples of the plots. Also, below are some other examples of the plotting services.
