2012 Plan Expert Software $1000
2012 Plan Expert is a Windows-based program that allows users to planimeter contour maps. Within the program, maps are entered using a digitizing tablet and contour areas, map volumes, and oil and gas in place are computed. Digitize portions of a map such as a lease and compute their volumes. Digitize faults, well locations, sink holes, multiple hills. A complete planimeter program for the oil industry.
2012 Plan Expert can be used with a digitizing tablet to input the contour maps, OR the maps can be input from scanned images using Scanner Plan, OR the maps can be input from any on-screen image or map using On-Screen Plan. On-Screen Plan will work with almost any other software program. Display the contour on screen and planimeter the map using On-Screen Plan.
Plan is a Windows-based program that allows users to planimeter contour maps. Within the program, maps are entered from a digitizing tablet and contour areas and map volumes are computed. Plan includes an easy interface that guides the user through the program.
Plan can analyze isopach, pore volume, hydrocarbon pore volume, and structure maps. For structure maps to be analyzed in Plan, the contours must have closure. For structure maps, contour areas are computed, but volumes are not. Scales can be in English or metric units. Faults, sink holes, and well locations can all be included on the map. partial contours can be defined to simplify digitizing. While digitizing, Plan graphs contours, faults, sink holes, and well locations. Plan can be used with a variety of digitizing tablets connected to the computer through a serial port.
Once a map is digitized and saved, it can later be reloaded and contours edited. a redigitizing feature is available for quality control. The user may digitize a contour several times and then select a specific "try" or an average of all tries.
Once a map has been defined, Plan presents two tables. One table gives the areas of each contour value and the second gives the volumes by the user-selected volume methods. Volume methods included in Plan are: Trapezoid, Pyramid, Combination, Quadratic, Step, Ratio, Simpson's, and 3/8 Rule.
Users specify the top layer, delta h, to define peaks for the volume calculation. Reserves can be calculated in Plan from user defined parameters for volume, porosity, hydrocarbon saturation, formation volume factor, and recovery factor. Users can select which volume methods to display. A report summarizing the results can be printed. This report includes the map, area and volume tables, reserve calculation if done, and information about the analysis provided by the user.
Plan adds map files to compute areas and volumes for over-sized maps digitized in parts. The program also allows portions of a map to be defined to obtain area, volumes, and reserves for leases. Leases are defined by digitizing lease boundaries. Results from several leases can be combined to obtain totals for different owners of a field.
Plan has a tutor key which provides on-screen instructions. Documentation with "hot spots" and figures is provided on-screen. Plan provides users with an efficient and accurate tool to planimeter maps and estimate map volume and reserves. Written in the elegant style of Windows the program's straight forward approach makes Plan easy to learn. Whether you occasionally planimeter maps or analyze hundreds every month, Plan will provide you a valuble tool.
