Tecplot RS 2018 Release 1 is Now Available

BELLEVUE, Wash. (August 29, 2018) – Tecplot, Inc. has announced the general availability of Tecplot RS 2018 Release 1. This is a major release of the company’s reservoir visualization and analysis software. Highlights of this release include the Stamp Plot, arbitrary slice enhancements and a visual cell-blanking indicator. The Stamp Plot introduces an entirely new way to view well production history.

Stamp Plot

A spatial approach to viewing well production history is introduced in Tecplot RS 2018 R1. Called the Stamp Plot, users can view grid solution data and XY results simultaneously in a single view. Typically, wells in the grid solution of a reservoir simulation are spread out at specific locations. Each well has its own associated production data (for example, water and oil production totals, pressure, or water injector). The Stamp Plot affixes a small stamp-size plot at each individual well location. The resulting view shows a time history of well production and the reservoir dynamics – all in a single plot.

“The Stamp Plot gives reservoir engineers a faster and easier way to get a deeper understanding of the dynamics of their reservoir model,” says Raja Olimuthu, Tecplot RS Product Manager. “This method of tying together different types of reservoir simulation outputs in a single plot is quite unique, and it will be a huge help for engineers to get to their answers faster.”

Arbitrary Slice Enhancements

The process of creating an arbitrary slice is easier than ever. Selecting one of three types of slice definitions (chain, radial or pair), and clicking “start,” will automatically display the arbitrary slice when the creation process is complete.

Cell Blanking Indicator

When Cell Blanking is activated, the blanking icon on the top toolbar will be illuminated with a green highlighter. This gives a visual indication that blanking is active. In the cell blanking dialog, each blanking constraint will also be illuminated green as a visual indicator that it is active.

About Tecplot RS

Tecplot RS helps engineers manage and analyze oil & gas reservoir simulation data. The software helps them uncover knowledge about reservoir model behavior thereby gaining confidence in making crucial decisions. The software allows users to evaluate a full range of results, including line graphs, 2D x-sections, and 3D grid plots.
