This powerful presentation package uses LAS data files recorded by a Multifinger Imaging Tool to produce 3D images on a PC screen.
These images may be manipulated by the user to give a view that best suits understanding the nature of a feature.
All the views use a combination of false colour and position to give pictures where diameter changes are shown as variations in colour & shape.
During MITview use the initial visualisation generated is normally a view straight down the well; the result is an image similar in appearance to that seen when using a Downhole Video Camera.
The difference is that MITview is not affected by well fluid turbidity and additionally provides a quantified output.
On screen controls provide a number of useful measurement aids. The value of each arm reading can be displayed enabling dimensioned cross-sections to be examined.
A grid of nominal o.d. can be superimposed, allowing excursions that are probable penetrations to be rapidly identified. "Whiskers" can be automatically drawn to represent anomalies in a vector like form with lines representing the magnitude and direction of a feature.
While views down the well are very informative, MITview also allows the operator to look at features from different directions.
Full control of the displayed image allows it to be angled, rotated, lengthened etc. This often makes the understanding of a downhole problem easier. Longitudinal sections are also available, with the option to add arm readings.
MITview users are able to produce a CD for their customer with the data files of a particular job, together with an operating version of the program.
Also, a feature editor allows points of interest in the well to be saved to a file for distribution to the customer.
The engineer responsible for the well can then run MITview and examine the data himself, browsing through the features using a drop down list. Exported images can be used to produce hard copy pictures suitable for use in written reports.
