GVERSE FieldPlanner offers powerful field planning capabilities that result in time and cost reductions, allowing field planners to create, save, analyze, and manage multiple field plan scenarios to determine optimal hydrocarbon production.

GVERSE FieldPlanner intelligently populates wells over an entire field based on defined hazards, lease areas, and constraints. It uses an advanced optimization algorithm to lay out hundreds of wells in minutes. It works with you by taking into account surface hazards, existing wells in the area, and lease boundaries to maximize lateral length in the zone. GVERSE FieldPlanner is flexible and allows you to make granular changes to well geometry, orientation, and location throughout the development of the field. GVERSE FieldPlanner is completely integrated with GeoGraphix.


The GVERSE® FieldPlanner software offers you the following benefits:

  • Plan hundreds of well intelligently within minutes
  • Flexible enough to take into account surface, lease, and subsurface hazards
  • Quickly create, save, and analyze multiple field plan scenarios
  • Generate Geoprognosis reports
  • Analyze field plan scenarios to determine optimal hydrocarbon production
  • Assess field economics based on planned wells
  • Avoid no-go zones - Existing wells, rivers, buildings, and environmentally sensitive areas
  • Surface Hazards - Terrain slope (DEM) and custom shapefiles
  • Subsurface Hazards - Avoid areas with existing wells
  • Lease Areas - Add tracts
