  • GeoData Manager Version 4.13.6.13 has been released on 13 June 2018

    New features in this version include:

  • A redesigned and much improved menu structure
  • Undock and dock ability for the tab sheets on the main screen
  • Revised filter options
  • More company settings options
  • Permission levels for Access databases
  • Two new datasets, Surface Geology and Surface Heat Flow
  • WellSim Version 4.12.05.26 has been released on 26 May 2017

    New features in this version include:

    • Ability to edit secondary feedzones while running discharge simulations. This greatly increases user productivity and will often result in a better understanding of the wellbore characteristics.
    • Improved detection of parameter changes that require simulations to be run again to ensure the results reflect the current parameters.

      == Changes of external parameters (e.g. well geometry) cause all affected simulations to be coloured red until the simulation is re-run.
      == Changes of internal parameters (e.g. enthalpy) requires the simulation to be re-run before the output can be saved.
