Features

  • Technology. Endeavor is built using the very best open source software, standard APIs and protocols, and object oriented design.
    • Endeavor was designed and built with performance in mind. It uses specialized real-time charting software and highly optimized SQL statements and process flow.
    • Endeavor is a Java desktop application; it runs on virtually all workstations. This includes Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7, Max OS X, and Linux.
    • Using Java enables Endeavor to leverage the use thousands of existing class libraries. This enables rapid application development and also application integration where needed.
    • All data is managed via relational database management systems. SQL Server, MySQL and Derby RDBMS are supported. Data may be on a workstation, file server, or Internet cloud. The benefits of using a RDBMS are numerous: improved collaboration, superior data access and searches, use of 100's of off-the-shelf applications and much more.
    • Endeavor is robust and fault tolerant. Database writes are encapsulated within transactions to ensure that the entire operation succeeds. Database connections are reconnected if lost.
  • Data Model. Data is organized in logical "folders" specifically tailored for well log data acquisition.
      These folders include:
    • Database
    • Field
    • Well
    • Sidetrack (Lateral)
    • Curveset (Log)
    • Curve
  • Applications. Endeavor includes all the apps needed to GeoSteer.
      These apps include:
    • Geosteering
    • Directional Survey Calculations (calculates TVD, VS)
    • Curve resampling and fill missing
    • Curve smoothing
    • Curve Spreadsheet editor
    • SQL command monitor
  • In the Geosteer application, the geoscientist correlates well logs in order to locate geologic zones of interest.
      The GeoSteering apps has the following characteristics and features:
    • Correlation controls are highly interactive with results shown in real time
    • Controls include trial dips, fault throw, and analysis segment length
    • Displays include charts for correlation and the resulting structure
    • Offsets
      • Multiple offsets can be used in correlation
      • Offsets may be shifted vertically (to adjust for regional dip, etc.) or in LWD units (for visibility)
    • Horizons ("tops")
      • Multiple horizons (can be defined, computed and displayed in the correlation and structure charts
      • Horizons are "pinned" (defined on) to a primary offset. If the primary offset is moved, the horizons move as well.
    • Displays
      • Charts are resizeable, and zoomable to multiple levels. Interpreter has complete control of default dimensions and data ranges.
      • Interpreter can specify the color, line width and line style for all curves.
      • Charts may be annotated. Annotation controls include placement, font, color, border, etc.
      • Select chart content (curves, horizons, annotations, etc.) may be hidden as needed.
      • Charts may be printed or written to PDF files.
  • Data loading and export. Endeavor supports a variety of data formats commonly used in the industry and uses a specialized loader for loading and merging data in a single step.
    • Supported input formats
      • LAS (versions 1.2, 2.0, 3.0)
      • XLS (version 97-2003)
      • TXT (any free form text file with columnar data)
    • Automatic merge when loading to existing dataset
    • Data view/edit data before load completion
    • Supported output formats
      • LAS (version 2.0)
      • XLS (version 97-2003)
