Endeavor’s software engine calculates mass amounts of data in real-time, using the latest advanced software engineering techniques. It’s an efficient system where complex and complicated scenarios can be modeled without limitations, dynamically calculating change of flow paths, decision making paths, and property changes on surface or downhole.
Agile where rules and inputs can be defined – such as equipment and materials properties – and responsive to real-time inputs, the engine can be segmented or augmented for 3rd-party application integration. The software allows flexibility to simulate an unlimited number of scenarios where advanced simulations are built and automatically calculated within the engine to include scenarios like MPD, Advanced Well Control, Deep Water, HPHT, Extended Reach Drilling.
The engine can also receive inputs and send outputs from multiple sources – external software and hardware – to tailor the experience to your organization. The agility of the software allows organizations to test and operate scenarios from complex fluid flow, either surface or downhole in unlimited directions, such as Vertical, Horizontal, through different build rates, or paths such as reverse circulation.
The precision and accuracy rendered from the simulations have been validated with real time rig data between 99.65%+ model accuracy. This separates Endeavor from any other simulation technology company in the world. The differences are significant.
Endeavor’s computational fluid dynamics model consists of an industry leading circulation system that solves and analyzes problems involving fluid flows. Based on proven equations and algorithms, Endeavor’s proprietary software engines breaks down each section of drill pipe and corresponding annulus conditions to the millimeter, which calculates the relationship of velocity, pressure, temperature, and density of a moving fluid, solid or gas. Our model uses applied mathematics and physics to visualize how a liquid, solid or gas flows, and how the liquid, solid or gas affects the objects it flows past.
The hydraulics model demonstrates the flow and pressure of drilling fluid, which the simulator uses in a multi-layer approach to model the complex physical phenomena that occur inside the hydraulics system at the core of well control operations. This includes the state, movement, and interactions between drilling fluid, gas, cuttings, formation, surface and underground equipment.

Endeavor’s mechanical earth models take in account the physical properties and processes of the bit drilling through conventional or unconventional reservoir types. By computing geological, geophysical, and geomechanical properties the software engine calculates the energy required to drill through any lithological property, as well as complicated well bore trajectories needed to do it.
Accepting an unlimited amount of subsurface properties allows the software engine to calculate the drillability of the current rock formation and provide the energy required to drill into it. Experimenting with different techniques and optimizing drilling rates and parameters allows users to experience realistic feedback when bit is on bottom.

The Endeavor Software Engine models the variations in forces and energy affecting the entire drillstring during drilling operations. Using techniques such as Finite Element Methods, Endeavor’s system considers the known inputs and equation solvers, and in this case, models every individual joint of the drillstring and the relationship between the drillstring and annulus. The engine also considers the geospatial position in three dimensions and amalgamates all sets of element equations into the engine for real-time calculations and outputs.

The Endeavor Software Engine also leverages real-time downhole graphics that provides an actual representation of the subsurface relationships of formations, well plans, drillstring, casing, casing shoes and the fluid dynamic visualizations within the Drillstring, annulus and formations. The visualizations provide valuable information and context in different views such as the stick diagram screen and the 3D Geocube. Furthermore, all information available in the paper drill plan or stick diagram can be displayed in the 3D Geocube. The 3D Geocube can be spatially oriented to show the well trajectory in any angle. The simulator can handle any drill plan that the instructor designs – from simple vertical wells, to more complex well bore geometries such as build and hold, build and turn, slant hole, horizontal, extended reach, long, medium and short radius builds.

Analog vs Digital, VCR vs Online Video Streaming, Rotary Dial Telephone vs Smart Phones... Pre-Internet era vs Post Internet era = huge technology gaps.
One of the benefits behind Endeavor's technology is that the software is based on current software engineering practices. The majority of existing simulator technologies was written before the internet was created. An equivalent gap in the difference of technology would be a comparison between a horse and carriage versus an electric car. It's true, both can get you where you need to go, but the performance is much different.
Endeavor develops and deploys technology solutions that helps our clients solve their biggest problems. Our partners recognize the performance, agility and accuracy of our simulator technology and it is our pleasure to demonstrate the sheer power with you.
