This video describes a new capability whereby RockWorks16 can be used to automatically determine the path for a horizontal well that starts out as a vertical borehole at a designated location and then curves (based on a user-defined radius of curvature) into a pay-zone as defined by two grid models. The path will then automatically route itself along the mid-line of the two surfaces until reaching a user-defined point.
Caveat: This program assumes that hole starts out vertically.
Two new videos showing how to export diagrams from RockWorks16 into Google Earth have been uploaded to YouTube. The short version is 2 minutes and skips all of the “how-it-works” information. The long version is 12 minutes and provides a description of what goes on “behind the scenes”.
Please note that these videos do not cover the EarthApps portion of RockWorks which directly exports to Google Earth. Instead, these videos show how to export existing 2-D diagrams (maps, profiles and sections) from RockPlot2D and 3-D diagrams (logs and block models) from RockPlot3D into Google Earth.
This video represents an experiment at placing buttons within a video to serve as a sort of interactive sampler. The initial reaction (from spouse) has been less than favorable so it’s essentially a good-bye to a dumb idea.
