Grouping Wells and Analytics
One of the best features of WellDatabase is the ability to easily group and analyze wells based on various criteria. With our unique split layout, users can break out well counts and production analytics with a few clicks.
In order to utilize the interaction between the well groups on the map and the production analytics, we first need to make sure our well browser layout is setup correctly. All we need to do is to ensure that both the well map and analytics are visible. The List view is optional here. The interaction will work with or without the list visible.
For this setup, the view should start out looking like the image below:
Before we explore the interaction between the map an analytics, we will look at what makes up the analytics view. To start, there are a series of tabs that will break down the production by their respective properties. The one exception is the Overview tab, which gives information based on all wells in the search.
The overview tab starts to provide analytics when the well search dips below 200,000 wells. Once your search is below that threshold, you will see some general aggregated data.
Once your search returns less than 1,000 wells, each individual well’s production is plotted on a single chart.
This chart can be overwhelming at the higher end of the spectrum, but outliers are still easily spotted. Narrowing your search helps bring back a much more manageable dataset. Here we narrow down to wells with first production dates in the past five years.
Now we zoom into a closer area with just 12 wells.
If you hover your mouse over any line in the production chart, it will tell you the well name and production number for that month. Also, if you click on that series, it will open up the details for the well.
Now the rest of the tabs work in a similar manner. Each will group the wells in your search and present charts for well count, cumulative production, and then total monthly production.
Hovering over any one of the values on any chart will highlight that group’s values in the other charts. Here we highlight Burlington wells in our search.
The analytics also provide a table view of the data where you can export the information or use it to quickly add items to your filters.
Clicking the export will download a csv of the data in the table immediately. To filter using the table, select the row values you want by checking the box on that row, and then click Map. The values will be added the the filters and both the map and analytics will be updated
Grouping on the Map
WellDatabase enables you to group wells on the map by several properties. To create a color-coded group of wells the map, open the Tools panel and click on Colorized Groups in the Well Layer Settings.
Now you can drop down the Group By selector and choose which property you would like to use.
Here we selected the Operator field and our map is now color coded by operator. You can click on any well and it will bring the other wells in the group to the front and will list the group value in the pop-up. The wells not in the group are still visible, but they are faded so that the active wells will stand out. You can see a quick legend of all the grouping colors by clicking on the legend button on the map.
Interaction Between the Map and Analytics
Since you probably had the view setup correctly with the map and the analytics visible, you will have already seen that the analytics pages are automatically updated to reflect the map grouping. Not only do the colors match to the group, highlighting any of the charts will highlight the wells on the map and vice versa.
In this view, you can still switch between the analytics tabs to view the other grouped data, but the interaction with the map will only work on the group your map is using. If you change the group on the map, it will automatically send you to that analytics page. Here are a few more examples of the interaction between the analytics charts and the map.

One last thing about the interaction. If you go back to the overview tab and have well production on the chart (only if you search contains less that 1,000 wells), then you will see that clicking any well on the map will highlight that well’s production in the chart. The opposite will happen if you hover over the production chart, it will highlight the well on the map. This interaction will only work if you have the Colorized Group option selected in the Well Layer Settings.
The well grouping and dynamic production analytics allows you to see more about your data faster than ever.
