Tutorial 7: Tips for using WellSim

Working with data types

Data types are the different kinds of data that WellSim uses for a well, for example geometry configurations and secondary feedzones read more. In this part of the tutorial you will create a new geometry configuration based on an existing geometry configuration and change the casing and liner sizes. You can work with WellSim's other data types in a similar way, for example a measured discharge profile.

First, open the sample database and click Geometry configurations under .

Copy

Right click the row with Actual geometry to select this geometry configuration and pop up a menu:

Click Copy. WellSim copies the Actual geometry data to a new geometry configuration and adds Copy of in front of the description:

Rename

Right click the row with Copy of Actual geometry to select this geometry configuration and pop up a menu:

Click Rename. WellSim asks you for a new name. Click Description, type Larger bore and click OK.

Edit

Delete

You could now run a discharge simulation on MY WELL using this new geometry configuration with the larger casings to see what effect they have. When you are done, you might want to delete this geometry configuration you created above:

TIP: You can also call up this menu by clicking Data:


TIPs for entering data into a field

This part of the tutorial describes how to enter data into the fields of a data type that you are editing. For example, entering a description for a geometry configuration or entering the vertical depth of the bottom of a section of a well.


Working with data rows

In this part of the tutorial you will add new rows (well sections) to an existing geometry configuration. You can work with most of WellSim's other data types in a similar way.

Insert a row

Insert adds a new, empty row just above the current row.

Add a row after the last

Add adds a new, empty row after the last row.

You could now enter data for the new well sections. Note that the vertical depth (bottom) of the new section in row 2 must be between 869 m and 2521 m; and that the vertical depth of the new section in row 4 must be below 2521 m.

Delete the new well sections

Getting data into WellSim

WellSim stores your geophysical data in its internal database. There are several ways to get data into WellSim's database:


Getting data out of WellSim

WellSim stores your geophysical data in its internal database, and lets you create and change your data as you use WellSim. There are several ways to get data out of WellSim:
