Recovery Maps

The addition of Recovery Maps give engineers a one-click method to calculate and visualize the percentage change of any variable relative to initial conditions. With this powerful functionality, engineers can quickly determine the effectiveness of their recovery mechanism. A visual representation of the recovery map helps reservoir engineers make more informed decisions on such things as well placement.

RESQML Data Loader

RESQML is a standardized format that is output from the INTERSECT reservoir simulator. The new loader for RESQML data in this release will enable more efficient data sharing and collaboration of simulation results.

“We are very excited to be part of the RESQML and Energistics community” said Tecplot RS Product Manager Raja Olimuthu, “Joining this community gives us even more opportunity to work with and listen to reservoir engineers and their needs. We look forward to partnering with leaders in the oil and gas industry to continue to drive energy standards.”

Customer-Driven UX Improvements

Tecplot RS 2017 Release 1 continues the trend of improving user experience (UX) by reducing the number of clicks in typical workflows and making essential tools more easily accessible.

Tecplot’s 15-year history of consulting with industry leaders keeps each software release in sync with innovations at the forefront of oil & gas reservoir simulation.

Numerous UX improvements in Tecplot RS 2017 R1 include:

  • Animation control buttons that allow scrolling through available timesteps for each entity in the RFT plot type. Similar to other XY dialogs, the animations can be exported.
  • Axis zoom lock for XY plots are available in the sidebar. After zooming into a range, the x-axis can be temporarily fixed into the chosen range while stepping through entities.
  • The time slider allows you to see changes in wells and bubbles over time, even when the displayed property is not static.
