IHS AccuMap allows you to gather oil and gas data, analyze the results, and plot maps quickly. This program is ideal for professional and technical oil and gas personnel, such as, geologists, geophysicists, engineers, land managers, and technicians. AccuMap also makes it easy to access data for regular updates or strategic planning and is ideal for managers, planners, and financial analysts. AccuMap contains a vast store of current oil and gas information for Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, British Columbia, and the Territories. You can purchase different versions of AccuMap: AccuMap generic, IPL, and IHS. AccuMap allows you to instantly picture the information you need and allows other professionals in your company easy access. The following data are updated on a monthly basis: • Cultural data (survey grid, roads, rivers, towns) • Well locations (bottomhole and surface hole, well status, and directional surveys) • Geological formation tops • Drillstem test, core, and perforation details • Well production summaries and comprehensive well production and injection histories • Gas analysis, AOF pressure data, and deliverabilities • Pipeline and facility data • Field and pool data • Oil and gas reserves WELL SYMBOLS In the petroleum industry, standard symbols are used on maps to indicate different kinds of wells. “Dry” hole means that no hydrocarbon shows were found Source: Accumap (IHS Energy) Accumap Software Demo Start – Programs – Geological Engineering – Accumap Tools – Index Map (or UWI search, if you already know the Unique Well Identifier for the well you’re interested in) Index Map View: Select “All” to see a base map for all of western Canada. Otherwise, just select the province that you’re interested in. Click the “New” button, then use your mouse to box off the area that you want to map. (Don’t worry. You can change the boundaries of this box later by zooming in/out or panning.) Time-out: File locations Before you go too far, you will want to make some changes to the default locations used by Accumap for storing temporary files and data or map files. Otherwise, it will try to save things to folders that you are not allowed to access, and error messages (and potentially crashes) will result. (1) Click on the path that appears on the lower left corner of the interface, then use the pop-up dialog box to enter a path that you have permission to write to (… for most of this, this means a folder on your H: drive). Time-out: File locations (2) From the “Preferences” menu, select “Defaults.” Ensure that “Map Data Directory” and “User Database Directory” both point to paths that you have permission to write to (… for most of this, this means a folder on your H: drive). Time-out: File locations Even with the aforementioned changes, the software does not always run “happily” on our network. You may, from time to time, encounter “nag” screens like the one shown below. Although these are a nuisance, you can generally continue using the software just by clicking “OK” and carrying on with your business. The map that is generated should look something like this. Hover you mouse over the buttons on the left edge of the screen to see what these buttons do. An important button is the magnifying glass, which lets you click on a well and see information about it in an “Accucard” (more generally referred to as a “Well Ticket”). Here’s what a typical well ticket looks like: Well status and Year drilled, KB producing zone elevation Well name, location, and operator Vertical depth, subsea elevation and thick- Click for info ness of geological on cores, formations casing and logs Click for info on fluids produced from this well Example: What’s the Porosity of the Producing Zone for Wells in the Kindersley Area? Using the procedures described above, create a new index map by drawing a box that encompasses Kindersley and surrounding areas. It’s not so useful to display ALL of the wells in our index map area, so use the Detail Map – Map Features menu to “turn off” wells. Click on the check mark to turn off the display of all wells Now, we want to query the Accumap database, and ask it to display only the wells that are in the Kinderlsey field. Do this by clicking the “Ask Question” button at the lower left corner of the index map. We first need to tell the database which region we want to search in to find the Kindersley wells. Click Region, Screen, then Add. 1 2 3 If we clicked “OK Find Answer” at this stage, all of the wells included in the map area would be displayed... this isn’t really what we want, so we will ask some addition questions as follows... Click Data Group, Well License, Field, then the Lookup button. 1 3 2 4 7 5 8 From the drop-down list that appears, select Kindersley, then click OK. Click the Add button. Click OK, Find Answer. 6 From the colour palette that is displayed, choose the map display colour that you want for your Kindersley wells, then click OK. Assuming that you correctly drew your index map such that it contained Kindersley, you should see a few wells appear on your map now. Click the Zoom to Any Area Button, the zoom in to get a closer look at the Kindersley wells. You will note that when the zoomed-in map draws itself, your wells will have DISAPPEARED! Click the Find Answer button, which will reiterate your query to the database and display the results. There are a number of oil wells NW of the town of Kindersley, and a number of gas wells SW of the town. Use the magnifying glass tool if you want to browse the Accucards for any of these wells. In this case, we want to know the porosity of the producing formation. We can click the Ask Question button again and send the database a more specific query (i.e., “Show me wells in the Kindersley area for which core analysis data are available”). 1 2 3 4 5 Unless you have refreshed the previous version of your map (by hitting the F5 key), the results of your previous query will still be displayed on screen. This is usually OK... just make sure that you choose a different well display colour for this more specific query, so you’ll be able to differentiate these wells from the previous ones. These wells that show up in a different colour are the ones for which core analysis data are available Use the magnifying glass tool to display the Accucard for one of these wells. On the Accucard, click the Cr/Pf/Case/Log button. Under Cores, click the Analysis Button. [Note: The Analysis button will not display for wells that do not have core analysis data in digital form.] Here is an example of a core analysis report. Measured porosities are shown here Measured permeabilities are shown here And that’s it... we’ve answered our initial question: “What’s the Porosity of the Producing Zone for Wells in the Kindersley Area?” You can use the Ask Question button to build all kinds of queries. For example: “Are there any wells in the Kindersley area for which dipole shear sonic logs are available?” (the answer in this case is “no”) There are a vast array of data types you can search for using the Ask Question button. It’s up to you to explore these on your own. Some other useful info: Choosing File – Save from the menu will save your map, in case you want to use it again (when you re-start Accumap and select Tools – Index Map, you will see that your map will be listed there.) If you want to retain the results of your database query, click the “Save Answer to List” button at the bottom of your map. This will let you create a Well List. This list will automatically be saved along with the map. [Note: Re-save your map after you’ve attached the list, though.] If you want to use a map in a PowerPoint presentation, hit the PrintScreen button on your keyboard, open a blank PowerPoint slide, then select Paste. If you print your map, make sure that you’ve selected a well colour OTHER THAN WHITE... otherwise you won’t be able to see your wells!

(EnerGISite will redirect you to the download site if it detects that you don’t have the require plug-in installed already.) http://www.slb.com/services/evaluation/software/data_utilities/dataview.aspx The logs that you will download from EnerGISite will be in a digital format, referred to as LAS (Log ASCII Standard). These are text files, which you can open and plot in MS Excel. Most logging companies also provide free LAS viewers, which you may wish to download and install if you have access to a computer on which you have Administrator privileges.
