New geoSCOUT features are added regularly to help you optimize workflows and visualize data in more ways. With superior mapping, charting and annotation tools, it has never been easier to map oil and gas plays, see trends, understand reservoirs and make informed decisions with confidence.
geoSCOUT Version 8.18 – New Features Highlights
New features are focused on enhancements to optimize petrophysical workflows, improved data visualization and mapping functionality, and new production datasets to drive efficiency and identify future opportunities.
Check out these new geoSCOUT features in Version 8.18:
LAS Curve Calculations
For geoscience users, we have addressed your requests for new LAS curve calculations that can derive greater insight from existing LAS data.
We have added the ability to calculate bulk density from sonic logs, sonic porosity from bulk density logs, and sonic from deep resistivity logs. Calculations introduced in previous versions have been extended to use new calculation methods. You can now calculate water saturation curves using the Simandoux method and shale volume curves using four non-linear calculations. We’ve also extended average cut-off calculations to allow users to calculate average cut-offs for shale volume logs. These new equations will allow users to quickly evaluate large groupings of wells before selecting individual wells for detailed evaluation work.
User Database Zones
geoSCOUT users are generating increasing data volumes through our continuously improving individual and batch analysis tools. Tools like the net cut-off, log statistics, measured thickness, and curve crossover thickness analysis all create data that needs to be stored, sometimes over thousands of wells. The new User Database Zones provides a cleaner, more intuitive method of viewing the results of this data analysis.
The new Zones tab allows users to store any sort of interval (pay zone) related data by defining a particular zone of interest. Fields can then be created to store data related to that zone. This tab lists all the zones a user has created, and selecting one will display all data related to that zone. Zones can also be used as interval definitions in places where it was previously possible to constrain analysis to specific intervals, such as LAS calculations, cut-off intervals, and more. Data contained within the zone fields can be searched, exported, posted, and contoured.
Load & Recovery Fluids
New load and recovery fluids production data will enable engineers to do a more complete analysis of a well’s production from initial completion and injection events by detailing load fluid injected and recovered over time. The new well ticket data includes the amount and type of fluid injected, load recovery and load inventory (injected minus recovered) on a monthly basis. Users can analyze this new data in Production Analysis and other geoSCOUT modules, plot it in production charts, display monthly data in the Production Data Listing, and add to Data Analytics.
Map Window Shapefile & Layer Enhancements
We have improved shapefile visualization and functionality, as well as introduced related features that will open up mapping data management workflows for our already powerful geoSCOUT Map Window.
Users now have the often-requested ability to import a shapefile and convert it to a geoSCOUT layer. Having the data in a native geoSCOUT format allows for more editing options and integrations with features such as contouring, proprietary land, and volumetric visualizations. Shapefiles in the Map Window can now display attributes as text labels posted directly from the shapefile’s database (DBF). geoSCOUT annotation elements that have attributes assigned can now post those attributes as well.
Non-Hydrocarbon Production (Helium)
Users can now view the most recent production data for non-hydrocarbon gases, including helium, hydrogen, nitrogen and carbon dioxide.
We are also calculating a new production value called Total Gases, which includes both hydrocarbon gas and non-hydrocarbon gases on well tickets.
For wells that have non-hydrocarbon production, the Production Summary displays production values for each gas in the production stream and total gases. It provides cumulative production, total production by selected date, and average daily production values. Production ratios for non-hydrocarbon gases versus total gases are also calculated.
The new data can be used in Production Analysis and other modules throughout geoSCOUT.
