What's New in DUG Insight 4.0

Welcome to the latest version of Insight!  This doc includes new features in DUG Insight versions 4.0, 4.1 & 4.2.

Menu and Displays

  • New 2D Gather View shortcut for 2D gathers (from the control panel)
  • Spectra viewer adds a crosshair value for the current position
  • Spectra viewer curves in the legend match order in panel

Wells

Interpretation and Attributes

  • CMY blend alternative for CMY/RGB/colour blending group

  • Updated gather view to clearly show interpolated and missing data
  • Improved fault picking performance
  • ShotPoint column available for custom 2D horizon exports
  • Support for reading TrapTester faults
  • Warn and confirm before resetting all mistie correction values

Volumes / Data Handling

  • Improve start-up times for large projects
  • Petrel Link supports 2D Data
  • SEG-Y loader stores notes containing header information
  • SEG-Y loader: Allow selection of angle units when loading angle gathers
  • Convert arblines to 2D and export custom sections to SEG-Y, dugio
  • Improved compatibility with OpenWorks for exported OWX well data
  • Optionally set CMP-X/Y headers when exporting to SEG-Y (enabled by default)
  • Better options for creating and using TVD volumes in feet
  • Allow cross correlation of two depth volumes
  • Improvements to Kingdom link automatic database attachment
  • Data links include well status when importing wells

Processes:

Support and Troubleshooting

Additional logging to assist with troubleshooting

Single Well View

  • Introducing a fully customisable, high-resolution well view
  • Use drag-and-drop to quickly build detailed views of well logs
  • Customise all aspects of display
  • Include traces extracted from any volume along the well bore
  • Plot point-curve data such as Time-Depth points
  • Display seismic data (or any volume) from the nearest inline, crossline, 2d-line or arbline

CMY blending

New CMY blending functionality. Use in conjunction with incoherence, dip angle and curvature for great results!

An CMY group allows you to designate the colours cyan, magenta and yellow to 3 different volumes for easy comparison in map, section and 3D views.

This process supports 2D, 3D and gather volumes.

For more information, seeCreating a New CMY Group.

NaN Removal

The new NaN process easily fills in or replace invalid values with user defined values using 4 available methods of calculations.

For more information, seeNaN Removal process.

Volumetric Curvature Process

  • Insight can calculate the structural curvature for a horizon (Using Horizon Properties), or volumetric curvature based upon a dip field (using a Curvature process).

 

 

Similarity Processes

We've added three very powerful new similarity-based processes for structural interpretation.

  • Correlation (Similarity): Fast and detailed similarity analysis
  • Semblance (Similarity): Similarity analysis with better noise suppression
  • Directional Correlation (Similarity): Very precise directional similarity analysis, enhance or supress features based on azimuth

Multiview

Multiview

With Insight 4.0, you can now enable multiple and independent 2D, arbline, IL/CL, map, and gather views! Each view can be linked by volumes, vertical/horizontal scale and position.

For more information, see Opening Multiple Views.

RGB blending

RGB blending

New RGB blending functionality. Use in conjunction with Spectral Decomposition volumes for great results!

An RGB group allows you to designate the colours red, green and blue to 3 different volumes for easy comparison in map, section and 3D views.

This process supports 2D, 3D and gather volumes.

For more information, see Creating a New RGB Group.

Well improvements

Bulk well import/export

Bulk well import/export

Where previously you can only import and export individual well data (i.e. paths, checkshots, markers, curves), now you can import and export all of them at the same time in OWX format.

For more information, see Importing All Well Data and Exporting All Well Data.

Arblines

  • Quickly create a new arbline from Map View
  • Repick/delete Arblines directly from Map View
  • Open Arbline View directly from Map View
  • Arblines can now be projected by set distance
  • Snap/unsnap arblines to 2D surveys

For more information, see the Arbline chapter.

New horizon operations

Create horizon from well markers

Create horizon from well markers

This new horizon operation creates a regular IL/CL or X/Y horizon from a set of well markers.

For more information, see Create Horizon from Well Markers.

Create gather horizons from IL/CL horizons

Create gather horizons from IL/CL horizons

This new horizon operation creates a gather horizon from regular IL/CL horizons.

For more information, see Create Gather Horizon.

Process improvements

Create Flattener process directly from Views

Create Flattener process directly from Views

Right click on a horizon in any view and select Flatten on "Horizon". This will instantly create a Flattener process with that horizon as the Base Horizon, and the domain in the Map View will automatically switch to the flattened view.

For more information, see Flattener.

Dip Azimuth and Angle attribute

Dip Azimuth and Angle attribute

This process converts a DUG Insight 3D dip field volume into two output volumes. The first is the azimuth of maximum dip, measured in degrees clockwise from map north. The second is the maximum dip angle.

For more information, see Dip Azimuth and Angle.

Mistie

Mistie

Manual misties can be applied, edited or removed in bulk.

From the Configure Volume window, click Configure Mistie Corrections to view all misties in a table. This table can also be exported to csv.

For more information, see Manual Mistie Correction.

Repair project database

Repair project database

A new Repair operation in Data Manager to fix any issues with the project database and restore access to the project.

For more information, see Repair a Project Database.

The new NaN process easily fills in or replace invalid values with user defined values using 4 available methods of calculations.

For more information, see NaN Removal process.

New CMY blending functionality. Use in conjunction with incoherence, dip angle and curvature for great results!

An CMY group allows you to designate the colours cyan, magenta and yellow to 3 different volumes for easy comparison in map, section and 3D views.

This process supports 2D, 3D and gather volumes.
