TS V7.434 - 08 February, 2017

TerraStation Version 7.434 - 08 February, 2017

IMAGELog - Well History/Engineering - An outside diameter value can now be saved with SHOE, PERF, PIPE, SQPF (squeezed perf), and TLIN (Top of Liner) entries.

IMAGELog - a new option adds a preference to suppress spacing for missing curves in track headers. This can be activated via a user setting in This may affect curve selection for such things as depth shifting, so it should be considered a beta version. Please contact TERRASCIENCES if you would like to test this feature.

Formation View - when View/Editing Data, a new "Set NULLs" option has been provided. This option permits you to set all values less than A to the specified value of B. (The Null Value in TerraStation is a large negative number.)

IMAGELog - a given pick key can be SAVED or RESTORED so that specific settings may be reused.

Petrophysics - detailed report files in Net Pay can now be produced in multi well mode.

Petrophysics - a problem when using irregular data in crossplots has been resolved.

Data Loading - calipers are now automatically loaded (if present) when loading acoustic images.

TS V7.433 - 25 January, 2017

TerraStation Version 7.433 - 25 January, 2017

Petrophysics - Crossplot - some problems handling RFT data directly from the ENG auxiliary data file have been resolved.

Petrophysics - Net Pay - a new basic reservoir reserves calculator is now available.

TS V7.432 - 11 January, 2017

TerraStation Version 7.432 - 11 January, 2017

TCL - macros with the sequence of renaming a curve, then creating a new curve of the same name, did not work properly. This has been fixed.

Petrophysics - Crossplot - a problem with display ranges being reset during interactions on Pickett and RFT pressure plots has been addressed.

TS V7.431 - 04 January, 2017

TerraStation Version 7.431 - 4 January, 2017

IMAGELog - tadpole track configuration now provides an option to post a tadpole key in the track header.

IMAGELog - after editing a depth shift table, the Shift Table option became deactivated and could not be used. This has been fixed.

TS V7.430 - 14 December, 2016

TerraStation Version 7.430 - 14 December, 2016

IMAGELog - the header for a sonic waveform track can now be vertically oriented.

IMAGELog - a crash condition when doing a left click drag operation on a facies bed boundary in the facies track has been fixed.

IMAGELog - depth label size can now be controlled by the user in the 3D borehole visualizer option.

IMAGELog - a problem with color distribution when using a small number of colors in the color map for a color coded track has been corrected.

General - user control for the screen display logo has been added to the Edit - Preferences - Plotting section of the main menu window.

TS V7.429 - 30 November,2016

TerraStation Version 7.429 - 30 November, 2016

Data Loading - DLIS image mnemonics longer than sixteen characters are now possible.

IMAGELog - Sonic Waveform - a system for customizing the track title for sonic waveform tracks has been added. If the track title is left blank, then the track title will use the Slot Name of the waveform file. If that is not set, then it will use the slot name from the tsswffil.v70 file. If that is missing then it will use the "SWF x" where x is the sonic waveform file number as the track title.

General - users may specify a custom screen logo to appear on the upper right of various petrophysical displays such as histograms, ternary diagrams, crossplots, and bar graphs. This requires an addition to control file in the form of:

      (global (define screen_logo_file "xxxxx.bmp/jpg/tif"));

TS V7.428 - 2 November, 2016

TerraStation Version 7.428 - 02 November, 2016

IMAGELog - Pressure Modeling - the level of interactivity has been changed to offer the user more control over redraws in the Pressure Model track. Redraws may be "Off", "Full, All Curves", or "Stress Models Only".

Petrophysics - Equus - a problem with file handling when copying an equation has been fixed. This also applies to the Map Equus feature in the map module.

TS V7.427 - 26 October, 2016

TerraStation Version 7.427 - 26 October, 2016

Borehole Imaging - a pick analysis option has been added to save normal and shear stresses on critically stressed fractures. Normal stresses are saved in the VALUE column and shear stresses are saved in the MEAN column of the PCK file. These are the effective stresses in PSI.

Production Data - changed the decline curve analysis to use harmonic, exponential and hyperbolic fits. Also some display changes to show ratios on a separate axis.

TS V7.426 - 12 October, 2016

TerraStation Version 7.426 - 12 October, 2016

IMAGElog - several plot file generation settings are now saved for re-use. Set the depth toggle on the Plot/Print panel to "Last Plot". This restores the most recent depth range, plot file name, scale, and column range.

IMAGELog - the frequency of ellipse displays in a hole shape track can now be adjusted according to the current depth scale if the frequency of the ellipses is set to 0.

TS V7.425 - 28 September, 2016

TerraStation Version 7.425 - 28 September, 2016

Sonic Waveform - the default settings for Frequency Dispersion calculations have been modified. The bandwidth setting is changed from 1.5 to 0.25, and the step size from 0.1 to 0.025.

Sonic Waveform - the program can now use retrieve additional waveform parameter information from the well header file. Please refer to the help file for specific information on the supported parameters.

Sonic Waveform - an option has been added to use cross-correlation to distinguish fast from slow to get the final raw anisotropy angle.

Sonic Waveform - a filter to semblance computed DT's before doing comparison in semblance mode final raw anisotropy.

Sonic Waveform - when calculating frequency dispersion in combined anisotropy mode, both fast and slow dispersions are now calculated.

Petrophysics - Fast Formation Evaluation can now includes logic to handle the presence of coal and salt. If coal or salt is present then output porosities are set to zero and output Sw's to 1.0.

Petrophysics - the user interface for Fast Formation Evalution has been updated to the tree menu structure.

IMAGELog - Curve Listing track. The angle of text display for numeric curve tracks can now be controlled by the user.

IMAGELog - Stratigraphy Track. The selected stratigraphy rank columns are no longer required to be in continuous order. you can specify by entering 1,4,5,7 for example

TS V7.424 - 14 September, 2016

TerraStation Version 7.424 - 14 September, 2016

Sonic Waveform - negative semblance arrival window offsets are now permited.

Data Loading - a problem with data increment units (introduced in V 7.422) has been corrected.

IMAGELog - Biostratigraphy track - a new "abundances (text)" display is now available. This shows abundances as a single text character. A colored background to the characters can be done by using the new QUALIFIER entry in the data file.

IMAGELog - a "reverse hourglass" option has been added to color coded curve tracks.

Dip Analysis - a problem with color coding on walkout plots when using a stratigraphy file has been fixed.

Petrophysics - three new methods for multi-well normalizing have been added.

Petrophysics - a new multi-zone summary report (when in detailed report mode) is now available. See the help for details.

Data Loading - the Auxiliary Data loader can now load an entry for biostratigraphy sample qualifier.

New and Modified Parameter Files - ilbioabund.v70, ilbioqual.v70, tslabels.v70

TS V7.423 - 31 August, 2016

TerraStation Version 7.423 - 31 August, 2016

Sonic Waveform - a problem with the frequency dispersion option when track muting is on has been resolved.

Sonic Waveform - an option has been added to display all frequency dispersions in sequence over an interval.

Sonic Waveform - the sequence of frequency dispersion displays may be captured in a TerraStation plot file called FreqDisp.plt. The stepped sequence can then be displayed in a video like fashion in the TerraStation plot editor.

Mapping - a north arrow can be included to the map display in the lower right corner of the map border.

Borehole Imaging - Tadpole Track - tadpoles can now be filled gradually based on the quality setting of the pick.

General - zoom response times have been improved.

IMAGELog - inserted core images at scales that were too small to display generated an "invalid file format" message.  This has been removed.
