Using WellDatabase Analytics
WellDatabase analytics are a one of a kind tool that allows you to dynamically analyze well data anywhere within our database. With one of the largest domestic databases available, the WellDatabase analytics provide a view of the data you cannot get anywhere else. Working with Analytics is simple and straightforward.
Create a Search
To get started, you need to add filters or zoom into an area to get your well view to 200,000 or fewer wells. The analytics pages accesses hundreds of millions of records and this limit allows us to ensure that you are never waiting long for your analytics.
For our example we will add three filters. We will look at horizontal wells in Mountrail county, North Dakota producing from the Bakken. To check out this search, click here to load the search. For more information on how to use filters to create searches, check out our page on using filters.
Now that you have your search, you just need to click on the Analytics button at the top right of the page. This drops you straight into the analytics for the wells in your search.
The Overview page gives some high level statistics for the wells in the search.
The bars under each field represent the minimum, maximum, and average value for that field. The data on the overview includes depth information, elevation data, production data, and permit ranges.
The tabs between the Overview and Production break down the search by various properties. Each tab shows the top 20 choices. broken down by well count, oil production, gas production, and water production. Below are examples of the search broken down by Operator and by Field.
Below the charts are a table listing each of the values. While the charts show the top 20, the list contains all possible values with the summary of the production as well.
The list is useful for viewing the numerical data, but there are additional features available from here. Each row allows you to view more details, drill down, or map the wells. For the operators screenshot above you can do the following:
- Click on an operator name to view the analytics for all of the operator’s wells.
- Click the Map Wells to add the operator to the search filters and jump back to the map.
- Use the Drill Down button to add the operator to the search filters and continue with the analytics.
In addition to those features, there are additional functions available at the top of the list. You can use the export button to export the summary data in the table directly to a .csv file for additional analysis. You can also select any number of values and click the Analyze button to popup a new analytics window with the selected values applied as filters.
Using this view, you can view / remove individual filters along the top of the screen. This allows you do dig further into the data easily and since it is in a pop-up, all you have to do is close it out and you’re back to your original search.
Further down the Analytics page you will find tabs for production analytics. These analytics are generated dynamically (based on your search) using hundreds of millions of production records in our well database. The first tab is a cumulative production chart. This is a monthly breakdown of the cumulative production for all the wells in your search.
The production chart is similar to the chart you will find throughout the site with oil, gas, & water, but the number of wells included in the cumulative amount for that month is charted as well. You also have the table view of the raw data and the .csv export button below the chart.
The Type Curve tab provides a production type curve for all the wells in the search. This is the average production produced by month for all wells in the search.
This curve also shows the number of wells used in creating the average. From this chart, you can effectively get the average production for any period of time (first month, three months, six month, etc.).
The WellDatabase Analytics are a unique and powerful tool. Be prepared to allocate some time on it though. Once you are able to break down data this way, you will be able to answer questions like never before and it can get somewhat addictive.
