Well Display in Sections and 3D

Insight section and 3D views can display wells using different methods. The default is to use the display settings specified in the Well Details in the Control Panel. A view can use its own settings to provide a custom well display.

By default, well display settings are linked. Changes to the well display settings are shared between views. See Linking to find out how to use links.

Well Settings in Section Views

In section views, open the Display Settings window and choose the Wells tab.

  1. In the section view, right-click and choose Display Settings.
  2. Open the Wells tab and select Use the well’s settings.

Well Settings in 3D

In the 3D view, well settings are configured in the Wells tab of the side-bar.

Using the Well’s Settings

When the Use Well Settings option is enabled, each well uses the display settings and curves chosen in the Control Panel > Wells tab. The per-view well display settings are disabled.

To customise the well display for a view, uncheck this option.

Selecting Curves (in Wells Details)

To select curves:

  • Select the well in the Control Panel > Wells tab.
  • In the Display section
    • Click the well curve selector button and select the curve to show (see Selecting Well Curves), OR
    • Choose a class to automatically find a matching curve.
      • Click the colour box to open the class settings.
      • Use the Filter textbox to search for a specific class name.

To configure the well display:

Using Curves: None

Use this option to hide log curves, but show other well annotations.

  1. Uncheck / disable the Use the Well's Setting option.
  2. Select None to turn off curve display for all wells in the view.
  3. Configure the well annotations.

Using Curves: One Curve

Use this option to show the same curve for all wells in the view, without changing the selected curve in the Control Panel.

  1. Choose One curve option
    • Only one curve is displayed for each well.
    • All wells displayed will use the same settings.
  2. Click the curve chooser button to select curves, OR
  3. (For 3D View) Choose a class to automatically find matching curves
    • Use the Filter textbox to search for a specific class name.
  4. See How curves are selected for display - Using the Well Curve Chooser
    • Click the colour box to open the class settings.
  5. Configure the well annotations.

Using Curves: Well Template

Multiple curves can be displayed for each well using a template created in Single Well or Well Correlation View (see Working with Templates).

  1. Section View
    • Select the Well Template option
  2. 3D View
    • Enable Show Chart and Use Template
  3. Select the template from the Template selection.
  4. Configure the well annotations.
