2 HDS - The Visual Petrophysical Tool Cross Section Introduction Important capabilities: Will display and plot log data from a group of well files. Data can be hung on Md, Tvd, Mdss, Tvds or Formation Tops. Symbols for oil/gas wells. Control over all grid properties. Utilizes your existing well log templates. Allows four custom title blocks.

3 HDS - The Visual Petrophysical Tool Typical Cross Section View

4 HDS - The Visual Petrophysical Tool Cross Section Tutorial Before you start a new project Move All of your Well Files (*.MDB ) into a common directory using Microsoft Explorer Move All of your Well Files (*.MDB ) into a common directory using Microsoft Explorer Make sure All Tops & Bases have matching Names. The names are not case sensitive Make sure All Tops & Bases have matching Names. The names are not case sensitive

5 HDS - The Visual Petrophysical Tool Common Problems These Formation names that do not match:  Lower Wilcox Sand A1  Lower Wilcox Sand A-1  Lower Wilcox Sd A1  Lwr Wilcox Sand A1 Non-Matching Formation Names - that match from file to file are Extremely Important when designing for the top of a Formation to another. When the program cannot make a match it draws to the end of the file giving some images that are 2 to 20 time longer than desired!

6 HDS - The Visual Petrophysical Tool Running the Cross Section Click the Cross Section Menu or Icon on the HDS Main Menu

7 HDS - The Visual Petrophysical Tool Before Starting  Copy all files into a common directory  Review the Formation Names After starting the Cross Section  Select the files  Generate Well Images  Layout Setup  View Section General Work Flow for New Projects

8 HDS - The Visual Petrophysical Tool Program Design Start Select Files Mapping (inactive) Generate Images Select Format Name Check Wells to Process Click the Generate Button Layout Set Up Select well type symbol View Section Show Formations and connect tops Align by Depth or Formation Set spacing between the wells Add up to 4 distinct Title Blocks Set the map direction markers

9 HDS - The Visual Petrophysical Tool Program Design The program is designed to work on the following tab structure from left to right.

10 HDS - The Visual Petrophysical Tool Step 1 - Selecting Files Select the Files you want by Double clicking a file or Range select the click add Select 1 file then click add

11 HDS - The Visual Petrophysical Tool Step 2 – Create Well Images Tab This is used with every new project to determine the range of data to be plotted and the style of the track layout. The major items are in a tab structure near the bottom of this screen.

12 HDS - The Visual Petrophysical Tool Components Major Components for Setting up new sections Plot Range Size Properties Picture Formatting Generated Metafiles

13 HDS - The Visual Petrophysical Tool Plot Range Important Steps Select Formations Options button Select top Formation less extra footage Select Last Formation Select “Though Zone” (ie base) or “To Zone” (ie top). This can be important is not all tops and bases are entered. Add extra footage above top formation and below last formation.

14 HDS - The Visual Petrophysical Tool Size Properties Important Steps Select Depth Reference (ie MD, MDSS etc) Select Vertical Depth Range Image Width (normally 3-5 inches). Remember this value is multiplied by the number of wells then adds space left and right of each well. This will help populate missing TVD data if needed to match TVD & MD sectioning.

15 HDS - The Visual Petrophysical Tool Picture Formatting Important Steps Log Plot Format Name is need to create metafiles for viewing. Press this button to view the formats available to you. If you need to refine your format, then goto the Log Plots, setup your picture and save it as a User Defined Format. If this yellow box is empty your metafiles images will not be created.

16 HDS - The Visual Petrophysical Tool This Screen selects any User Defined “Log Plot” for your files within the cross section. Create Well Images - Picture Formatting - Log Format & Setup

17 HDS - The Visual Petrophysical Tool Generated Metafiles Important Steps Your default data path will be used unless changed. Use this button to scroll through the images save in the selected directory.

18 HDS - The Visual Petrophysical Tool New files will not be generated until clicking the button below. Very Important Create Well Images – Generated Metafiles –Finanl Step

19 HDS - The Visual Petrophysical Tool Step 3 – Layout Setup Tab This setup is optional before going to the “View Section” tab (Step 4). The spread sheet items must be setup on the screen. Items on the tab structure below are interactive on “View Section” using a right click on the object for the menus.

20 HDS - The Visual Petrophysical Tool Title Block Click which option button you want. Type in the text using for more lines. Set borders and colors Placement can be done via numbers or dragged on the View Section Optional Steps

21 HDS - The Visual Petrophysical Tool Posted Well Names Set Borders Set Fore and Back colors. Align Text Optional Steps

22 HDS - The Visual Petrophysical Tool Directional Markers Optional Steps Used to place labels such as NE & SW on your plot. Set Borders Set Fore and Back colors. Align Text

23 HDS - The Visual Petrophysical Tool Datum Line & Depth Tracks Optional Depth Tracks Show depth on the left or right side of your plot. Spacing or frequency of lines. Optional Datum Line Set line width. Enter Depth for line. Toggle visibility Show depth text between wells

24 HDS - The Visual Petrophysical Tool Formation Names Names placed on Wells Line Width Fore Color Customize text within each formation name Names at Plot Sides Show on left side. Show on right side. Set Font Set Color

25 HDS - The Visual Petrophysical Tool Step 3 – View Section Tab The menu is interactive with areas of the plot by performing a right click with your mouse. The line connecting “Layout Setup” on the menu can be accessed by right clicking your mouse in any white area outside of a well image that is not a part of another object The line connecting “View Section Tools” on the menu can be accessed by right clicking your mouse in any well image.

26 HDS - The Visual Petrophysical Tool Layout Setup menus from right click outside the well images. Drop down Menus View Section Tools menus from right click inside the well images.

27 HDS - The Visual Petrophysical Tool Group 2 of the toolbar Select all wells Deselect all wells Show the Master Formation List for all of the wells Group 3 of the toolbar Zoom In (smaller) Zoom Out Zoom Normalize (100%) Zoom Factor via Text or Slider Group 1 of the toolbar Open file Save project Export to bitmap Export to meatfile PrintExit Green bars on the ruler indicate a well below this spot with the length shown in green. Toolbars

28 HDS - The Visual Petrophysical Tool Steps First zoom your data as desired. Right-click in any image for the View Section Tools menu. Select Formation (or depth). Next use the formation popup list for the alignment. Use Ctrl-T or menu to Connect Tops Also you might want to set Horizontal Spacing from this menu

29 HDS - The Visual Petrophysical Tool Steps Presentation Right-click for Layout Setup menu Select Main Title Blocks, Top Title and caption A input box with flashing cursor will appear Input text and new lines with the for as much data as you wish Hit or click off the input area and it will appear on the plot as an object Use the 4-direction arrow to place the title on your plot or you can auto position, change colors and add borders

30 HDS - The Visual Petrophysical Tool View Section – Steps Presentation cont’d This top title as had fore color, back color and font size changed as just discussed. Now use the same method to add Map Direction Markers. Right Click here.

31 HDS - The Visual Petrophysical Tool Right-click for Layout Setup menu to adjust Formation: Line Width Fore Color Font properties View Section – Steps Presentation cont’d
