What is being updated?
Today's 2014.1 update includes the following new features and fixes reported issues:
New Features
Advanced 3D visualization  

New Improved User Interface
The 2014.1 release includes a new, improved advanced 3D user interface. The new panels and toolbars added in the application makes the application more interactive and easy to use. These include:

    Advanced 3D Toolbar - It contains controls which are useful in changing the appearance of the 3D scene.
    Preview Pane - It lists the objects by category and enables you to change the appearance of objects.
    Properties Pane - It defines the appearance of the selected item in 3D view. Select an item in the Preview Pane to display its options in the Properties Pane.
    General Toolbar - It contains tools that aid you in viewing objects in 3D view.
    Status Bar - It shows the information of objects selected on the scene.

    Show MicroSeismic
    This release includes the Show MicroSeismic option which displays the MicroSeismic data.

    Display Seismic Traces
    In 2014.1, advanced 3D enables you to add the seismic traces on the seismic display.

    Wiggle Fill for the Seismic Traces
    The 2014.1 release of advanced 3D includes the Wiggle Fill option. This option enables you to fill in the amplitudes of the seismic traces.

    Display Log Templates
    The advanced 3D 2014.1 now displays the log template of PRIZM along the wells.

    Display Curve Spectrum
    The advanced 3D now displays the Curve Spectrum along the displayed wells.

Advanced Field Planning  

Reports Tab
The 2014.1 Field Planner includes a Reports tab. You can generate three Excel reports that calculate total pipe in the plan, total pipe in the zone, and an inventory of existing wells within a user-specified distance from any proposed well. These reports enable you to compare field plans on a cost-benefit basis.

    Create Auto Pad
    The Create Auto Pad feature enables you to automatically create a Well Pad with user-defined dimensions, instead of selecting an existing pad from a WellBase layer.

    New Icons in the Pad/Slot Tree
    New icons and font types in the pad/slot tree now illustrate when a survey has been calculated and when a calculated survey has been saved to the project database.  Proposed wells in the tree list will show in a bold font when a survey has been calculated for that well.  A database icon will appear next to the well name when the curve? has been saved to the database.

    Renaming Well Pad
    You can now rename the Well Pads and change the elevation of both wells and Well Pads from the Field Planner application.

    Re-size the Field Planner Application
    The Field Planner application can now be resized.

LMKR Well Planner  

Dogleg Severity
Two dogleg severity calculations have been implemented in the Well Planner for the 2014.1 release. The ability to have two different build rates has been added. The dogleg severity of the approach build rate (from Kickoff point to the landing point) can be different than the lateral build rate (landing point to bottom hole).

    Non-Projected Line of Section
    A feature has been added to the Well Planner for the 2014.1 release where you can plan target points away from the projected line of section.  With the Projected Section check box selected any target point on the lateral part of the wellbore will show on a straight line in plan view (i.e. projected onto a line of section).  With the Projected Section check box turned off, target points on the lateral can be planned off of the projected line to avoid subsurface hazards.

    Additional Well Editing Capabilities
    You can now edit key information about a proposed well so it can be kept up to date.  The permit date and the spud date have been added to the header information and are editable.
