whitson+ – comprehensive software updates list

  • Navigation panel: Updated navigation panel (following progress of recommended multiphase RTA workflow)​
  • PVT: 
    • Fluid definition, BOT and EOS model consolidated in one feature
  • Bottomhole Pressure
    • Custom bottomhole pressure manipulate, smooth, fit and change bottomhole pressures graphically
    • Well data clean up and simplify input interface
  • Flowing Material Balance
    • Reset slope option in multiphase flowing material balance plot.
    • Multiphase and dry gas flowing material balance consolidated in one feature. 
    • Recovery factor analysis outputs predicted EURs and cum GOR vs cum Oil forecast.
  • Analytical RTA: 
    • Lasso fit in square root of time plot.
    • Reset slope option in square root of time plot.
    • Consistent change from material balance time to real time (and vice versa). 
    • Include geomechanical effects, i.e. gamma (in matrix for gases)
  • Numerical RTA: 
    • Lasso exclude bottomhole pressures graphically
