Diagnostic Plot

This module can be used to plot custom diagnostic plots for multi-well analysis.
All the wells in the project can be plotted together for standardized reporting or analysis.
The data selected can be raw input or calculated in whitson+
. This module allows you to do the following -

  1. Selecting or Creating and Editing a custom plotting template.
  2. Selecting wells to be included in the plot
  3. Plot Customization - Traces, Colors, Markers and Legends
  4. Sharing templates across the organization, downloading or saving plot and data.

1. Navigating and Using the Module

You can create a multi-well diagnostic plot by navigating to the Diagnostic Plot module under Multi-well Analysis.


Here you should be able to select a diagnostic plotting template and one or more wells from the project. The templates fetch the appropriate data from the selected wells and plot them in the format specified in the template.

2. Creating/Editing/Sharing a new Diagnostic Template

You can create your own template by clicking the 'Create New' button at the top. You can also Delete, Rename and Copy this template here.
Set a name and hit save to create the template and edit the new template as soon as you have at least one well selected for plotting.


You can have company-wide templates or defaults that may already be available to you.

Click the 'Make company-wide' button at the top to toggle between making the template company-wide or user-specific. Company wide templates are shared across the organization while user specific templates are created by you and are only available to you.


Editing Templates?

You can only edit the templates created by you. If you want to edit defaults or templates created by someone else, you will be prompted to create a copy of the analysis which will then have to be made 'company-wide' after editing for sharing across the organization.

3. Template Options - Data, Scale, Axis location, Bounds and Data Aggregation

Editing a template allows you to adjust the five main components that define the template -

  1. Data to be plotted for each well (raw or calculated information for the well),
  2. Axis scale (linear or logarithmic),
  3. Axis location (left or right) and
  4. Axis bounds (set manually or let the data decide).

How many axes can I have?

You may have as many as 6 different axes, with the ability to plot multiple data traces over a single shared axis (such as Casing and Tubing Head Pressure)

  1. The x-axis - There can be only one for each template, location fixed to the bottom of the plot and has same options to set the scale and bounds.


Aggregate Button?

This button generates one curve for each of the selected datasets by aggregating all the wells. You may need to aggregate data to view information on a field level. The selection of how to aggregate is automatic. For example, rates and cumulatives will be summed while other properties may be averaged.

3. Plot Options - Traces, Colors, Markers, and Legends

Once your template is ready, you can then select the wells to go with the template, to get their select datasets plotted as traces on a single plot -

  1. You can hide or unhide traces one at a time or all at once (by double clicking the trace in the legend) like the rest of the plots.


  2. You have a color palette symbol on the top right of the plot - It switches from default color schemes to individual customizable colors for each trace for separating like datasets through color.


  3. You can Ctrl+Click individual traces to isolate their settings and adjust the line type, color, marker style, color of the marker and it's border.

  4. You can also globabally set line type, width and marker type for all traces within each property being plotted.
  5. You can also switch on or off legends to help visual display by clicking the 'eye' icon on the plot's top-right.


4. Exporting and Saving the Diagnostic

You can save all the plot data to an excel file using the download button on the plot.
You can also save the image as PNG or SVG
