M-I SWACO, a Schlumberger company, announced the release of the HDD Mining & Waterwell Essentials app for Apple and Android smart phones. The app enables rig operators to perform calculations for pump output, hole volume, annular volume and other functions using a smart phone, which will minimize trips off of the rig and reduce human error that can be incurred when performing calculations manually. The HDD Mining & Waterwell Essentials App includes a reference section that provides useful charts and tables that enable the user to reference pipe and casing details, hole and pump output volumes, unit conversions, product applications and flow charts. These reference materials help guide the rig crew in preparing basic drilling fluid formulations for various hole conditions directly from a smart phone. In the past, rig crews were required to bring reference materials to field locations so that calculations could be made onsite.

The HDD Mining & Waterwell Essentials app is available for free download from the Apple App Store and Android Market.
