AGR Software launches next-generation time and cost estimation software

We're really proud to announce that the new and novelty software that gives drilling professionals unrivalled understanding of time, cost and risk when planning wells has finally arrived.

As a user, you're able to estimate more accurate drilling project budgets and the Management can make investment decisions based on the accurate AFE (Approval For Expenditure).

AGR Software launches next-generation time and cost estimation software

The next-generation P1ANS™ application builds on the global success of AGR Software’s field-proven and industry-leading P1™ application. P1ANS™ combines trusted techniques with improved technology and new features, including rig campaign time and cost modeling, autodistribution from historic reference data, company specific tagging and templates increasing standardisation in well construction.

P1ANS™ employs Monte Carlo probabilistic simulation technique to analyse thousands of data points, before predicting a range of possible outcomes. Designed for D&W (Drilling & Well) engineers and management, D&W digitalisation leads and cost controllers, P1ANS™ helps ensure time and cost for single wells and drilling campaigns are thoroughly planned considering risks. 

The software integrates seamlessly with a range of other widely used technologies and is compliant with all modern software architecture requirements, including cybersecurity compliance, Single Sign On (SSO) and OpenAPI. 

Flexible to create company specific metrics like estimating CO2

Users benefit from a learning curve feature which enables greater forecasting over the duration of a campaign. The solution also offers greenhouse gas emission prediction helping the companies achieve their low carbon ambitions. With the option to import historical data and input from other digital solutions, users can seamlessly integrate time and cost outputs in their overall software network without the risk of data duplication or guessing errors.

P1ANS™ was developed in close consultation with AGR’s users and partners. As a result, it offers enhanced collaboration features to license partners, service companies and stakeholders at all levels.

Commenting on the launch, Øystein Andersen, VP of Software at AGR, said:

“This eagerly anticipated release of the next-generation drilling time and cost estimation software helps to further AGR Software’s ambition of digitising the well delivery process, unlocking an array of workflow efficiencies.

P1ANS™ gives operators the ability to unify data streams imported from other programs while standardising the well time and cost estimation output like AFE or time/cost curve for quicker decision making. 

P1ANS™ is the latest addition to our expanding portfolio of industry-leading software, iQx™. We experience massive interest from the market and will be presenting the solution at the SPE/IADC International Drilling Conference and Exhibition event in Stavanger this week.”
