Exprodat, the oil and gas ArcGIS platform specialist and Esri Gold Partner and Getech group company, has released a new version of its Unconventionals Analyst software.
The company developed the Unconventionals Analyst extension to ArcGIS Desktop to help oil and gas companies simplify and speed up the processes of optimising unconventional well patterns and managing reserves.
Version 222 of Unconventional Analyst includes a host of new features all of which have been designed to give the user a much greater insight into the efficiency of their field. Supporting the latest versions of Esri’s ArcGIS Desktop, the software now additionally allows users to create well pads and laterals across sets of contiguous sections; create well sticks from other proposed drill locations; view all results in 3D; and also assess the well sample sizes required to meet sub-Monograph 3 reserve estimation precision.
Technical Director for Exprodat, Chris Jepps explains why Exprodat’s latest software release will be so useful for companies working with unconventionals fields: “Unconventionals Analyst’s unique well pattern planning and reserve management algorithms revolutionise many common workflows within the shale oil/gas and CBM domains.”
“The software not only cuts the effort it takes to complete these workflows from hours to minutes, but also saves additional effort in revising results due to improvements in workflow accuracy. Planning unconventionals projects within ArcGIS Desktop allows companies to integrate data from multiple sources into their workflows, which means plans can be derived from a single application, saving additional data integration efforts,” continues Jepps.
