TS V7.405 - 16 March, 2016

TerraStation Version 7.405 - 16 March, 2016

Borehole Imaging - RB measurements are now used for borehole orientation rather than P1AZ if the well is deviated more than 10 degrees. In the past this did not happen until the well was deviated more than 45 degrees.

This is to better support multiple imaging tools in very long strings where the tools may be at different deviations due to borehole bending.

Petrophysics - some potential problems with range and scale control in multi well histograms and crossplots have been addressed.

General - the default curve mnemonic system now includes additional curves including a set of Power Positioning Caliper curves, ThruBit curves, and sonic waveform supporting data.

Modified Files: blimage.v70, tlcrvdsc.v70, tlcrvcat.v70, tlalias.v70

TS V7.404 - 09 March, 2016

TerraStation Version 7.404 - 09 March, 2016

Borehole Imaging - the resolution of circumferential images created from button data has been increased. (Except in bit size mode.)

IMAGELog - the control curve used for lithology and facies displays can now be a "fast" channel curve.

Data Loading - a problem when loading fast frequency and irregular curves via ASCII file has been resolved.

Petrophysics - a problem with multi-well netpay reports possibly starting with an invalid zone has been fixed.

TS V7.403 - 03 March, 2016

TerraStation Version 7.403 - 02 March, 2016

Borehole Imaging - users can now set the names of the basic orientation curves in images with greater than 25 buttons.

DLIS Export - the new custom curve names are used when exporting DLIS images. This improves support when transferring data to other software packages.

LAS Data Loading - when loading images from LAS data, the image button assignment has been further automated.

Data Loading - support has been added for a new Weatherford CMI mnemonic set.

Recent parameter file changes:

    tlcrvdsc.v70 - mnemonics have been added in support of additional image orientation curves.

    blimage.v70 - new image mnemonics.

TS V7.402 - 24 February, 2016

TerraStation Version 7.402 - 24 February, 2016

Borehole Imaging - a problem with the new additional data offsets has been resolved.

Data Export - SDEVM and HAZIM may now be included when exporting image data in the DLIS format.

TS V7.401 - 17 February, 2016

TerraStation Version 7.401 - 17 February, 2016

Correlation - picks may now be labeled with a combination of MD/Elevation values.

Borehole Imaging - when recomputing picks based on a new orientation, the computation tests the amount of orientation change and does not perform the calculation if the difference is small. This prevents the accumulation of rounding errors which might incorrectly move the pick.

Auxiliary Data Loading - IHD data can now be loaded in "multi column" mode. The incoming file must have the header entries in the column heading, and they must match a mnemonic in ilheader.v70.

Borehole Imaging - in support of Schlumberger protocols, the Inclinometry Offset on the Tool Parameters tab has been divided into an Acceleration and Orientation offsets. The Acceleration Offset is the same as the GPIT offset. The Orientation Offset may be (optionally) set if some or all of the orientation data needs to be shifted by a different amount. Toggles controlling the scope of how these are applied have also been added. See the online Help for more details.

Dip Analysis - an issue with plotting the location of the mean hole orientation on the stereonet has been addressed.

TS V7.400 - 10 February, 2016

TerraStation Version 7.400 - 10 February, 2016

IMAGELog - pick labeling can now display both the MD and elevation values.

General - one may zoom displays by pressing the CTRL key while moving the mouse wheel. This may not be available in all systems. Please notify TERRASCIENCES of any problems associated with this action.

DLIS Writer - the output curve array for circumferential images will use the slot name as the array name, if it has been set.

Formation Viewer - a potential issue with spurious lines appearing along sine waves if picks loaded without any HEIGHT value has been addressed.

TS V7.399 - 03 February, 2016

TerraStation Version 7.399 - 03 February, 2016

Data Loading - the Auxiliary Data Loader now permits users to restrict loading to within a specified data range.

Petrophysics - Curve Utilities - Copy a Curve - a problem with populating the target well curve when copying data from auxiliary data files has been addressed.

Petrophysics - Crossplot - a problem with error messages sometimes being generated when creating multi well plots has been fixed.

TS V7.398 - 27 January, 2016

TerraStation Version 7.398 - 27 January, 2016

Data Loading - the core photo data loader (Auxiliary Data Loading) offers additional controls for setting such things as core diameter, category, etc.

General - some operational improvements have been made to audit records and curve status.

TS V7.397 - 20 January, 2016

TerraStation Version 7.397 - 20 January, 2016

Well Data Management - Tools - a new option has been added to permit multi well editing of a constant name or units. Right click on the header of a column to change the name or select a unit.

Data Loading - one can now create a new set of wells in batch mode from a simple table containing well name, top, bottom and increment for the new wells. This option is found under the Auxilary Well Data loader, Well Data, Batch of New Wells.

TS V7.396 - 13 January, 2016

TerraStation Version 7.396 - 13 January, 2016

Borehole Imaging - bulk depth shifts for images has been improved and made more efficient.

Borehole Imaging - some problems with outputing circumferential images from SCMI data have been resolved.

Borehole Imaging - when copying curves from an image to the curve file (via the image data table editor), the operation is now recorded in the audit trail record.

Borehole Imaging - a new preference now permits the user to return to "add" mode after truncating or terminating picks.

Borehole Imaging - when truncating a pick against a pick with height, truncation occurs at the nearest edge of the pick.

Correlation - an option has been added to remove empty curve tracks from templates in cross section displays. This option is still in beta testing. Please report any problems when using it.

Petrophysics - input porosity curve in RWA and pore geometry calculations now compensates correctly for units.

TS V7.395 - 07 January, 2016

TerraStation Version 7.395 - 7 January, 2016

General - popup panels can now be closed by pressing the ESC button

Data Loading - "fast" curve data loading has been enhanced

Petrophysics - the EQUUS Conditional utility now permits the "if" and "else" curves to be the same.

Borehole Imaging - a problem with converting CMI style images to circumferential has been fixed.

TS V7.394 - 16 December, 2015

TerraStation Version 7.394 - 16 December, 2015

IMAGELog - a new grouping toggle for pick categories has been added to the rose diagram track configuration. This is to reduce confusion over how to display category colors in rose diagram tracks.

General - plot file compression for PDF files can sometimes cause artifacts in the drawing. A user preference now permits users to turn off plot compression by default.

DLIS Export - further correction to Slim FMI image export.
