I am in a sort of unique position. I spent last summer drilling about 100+ wells and recording well logs in the field. Then, I created a custom well log template in excel, and created files for each of the 100+ wells. Now, my employer has purchased LogPlot and would like me to create well logs in LogPlot. However, I am resigning in two weeks! Creating these well logs is my top priority before leaving. I am hoping to expedite the process by importing my existing files from excel. I'm happy to do the legwork myself, meaning reading tutorials and playing around with the software to figure this out. BUT, I thought it might be good to check in with folks here to see if this is simply too complicated and time consuming to learn in such a limited amount of time.
So far, I have briefly read the tutorial section on importing from excel. It recommends creating a logplot project that would represent what I want as the finished product, then exporting to excel, then you have a template and can arrange the excel files accordingly.
So, any advice? Do you think it would be faster, given my limited timeframe, to use a LogPlot template and just manually enter all of the data myself, or will it be faster to spend the time fine-tuning the import/export process? I attached an example of the excel well logs I have to give an example of my starting point(saved as pdf but you should be able to visualize how it would look in excel).
My goal for the final well log would be to have a scale bar, lithology, color (with option to add secondary color), several text columns (one each for presence of roots, minerals, redox, consistency/feel, general notes), and a well construction diagram.
Thanks a lot for any advice you can offer!
