GVERSE Field Planner

GVERSE Field Planner offers powerful, quick & easy 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 hydro carbon production.

GVERSE Field Planner 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 Field Planner is flexible and allows you to make granular changes to well geometry, orientation, and location throughout the development of the field. GVERSE Field Planner is completely integrated within GeoGraphix.

  • Avoid no-go zones - Existing wells, rivers, buildings, and environmentally sensitive areas
  • Surface Hazards - Terrain slope (DEM)
  • Subsurface Hazards - Avoid areas with existing wells
  • Lease Areas - Add tracts
  • Easily edit setbacks
  • Flexibility to add surface and subsurface hazard polygons


The GVERSE® FieldPlanner software offers you the following benefits:

  • Overcome Geometry constraints; Build field plans that avoid restricted areas, hilly areas or existing wells
  • After defining surface and subsurface hazards, automatically layout pad and wells over the entire map area
  • Quickly create, save, and analyze multiple field plan scenarios
  • Analyze field plan scenarios to determine optimal hydrocarbon production
  • Lower economic costs
