Who We Are

WellSoft AS

  • WellSoft has developed proprietary technology and methodology which enables us to deliver the optimised way to drill the well to achieve the best possible situation for reduced well bore damages.
  • The solution will give the best possible situation for increased production of Oil and gas and to maximise injection of CO2.
Wellsoft AS
  • It will reduce infrastructure utilisation and reduce operational risks, leading to a more sustainable operation by minimising costs and, ultimately, reducing the carbon footprint.

  • The technology is a software solution and the methodology is based on a 9 step work flow process.

Business Lines

WellSoft work within three different business lines

WellSoft AS

Oil and Gas

To achieve improve
productivity in the well.

CO2 Injection

We give our customers a deeper understanding and knowledge based on highly qualified information.

Our approach to the important questions of productivity and injectivity will help customers increase their profitability, by reducing costs and utilise investments in infrastructure.



Nine-Step Workflow Process

The business model requires a close and exclusive relationship between WellSoft and the client. WellSoft’s employees havehigh integrity and extensive industry experience. This combination ensures the quality of work, and supports our ability to be a trusted discussion partner for the client.

WellSoft must have access to essential data from the client. We will sign a mutual non-disclosure agreement describing this close working relationship.

Our Story

About Us

 In 2019, WellSoft was founded and incorporated under Norwegian law by Morten Lunde, Tommy Ness and Stig Solberg.

Their insight and expertise in the O&G industry identifiedopportunities to improve recovery from oil and gas fields. WellSoft devoted time and effort to investigate opportunities connected to near-wellbore damages caused by drilling and completion operations.

Global reports indicate that oil recovery differs greatly even between reservoirs that have a lot of commonalities from geological and geotechnical points of view. The average global recovery is about 26-28%, while recovery from other areas is substantially higher i.e. 50-55%.

WellSoft developed a software tool that produces input for an optimised drilling program that helps recovery from each well.

Maximizing Efficiency

 One of the main reasons for reduced recovery is the near-wellbore damages from drilling and completion.

Based on the industry experience and scientific research, WellSoft developed an algorithm that suggests how a combination of several drilling inputs, such as the choice of fluids and pressure, helps reduce well damage.

WellSoft’s nine-step workflow process and unique algorithm solution offer a greener footprint for the operators. Current industry practices to increase well recovery, such as well / acid simulation,increase the risks of contamination and carbon emissions.

WellSoft has, together with the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) and SINTEF, developed the Wellbore Damage Simulator (WDS) to simulate the input for optimised drilling program for each well.

The world need to take more responsibility for the environmental changes. As a part of this CO2 capture and storing (CCS) is one of the most important activities. Our solution will ensure that wells are better prepared to maximise the injection of liquid CO2 .

WellSoft and a Canadian company Beyond Energy signed an Innovation Contract in May 2021, this contract was extended in an MOU for joint development on February 2022.

It is Time to Optimize Our operation with Incresed Oil Recovery (IOR)

Global reports highlight that the recovery from any two oil and gas reservoirs can differ despite their commonalities from geological and geotechnical points of view. The global average IOR is about 26-28% while some wells have higher IOR at 50-55%.
