RockWorks Advanced contains all of the tools in the Basic and Standard levels. It also offers professional level features, including automation tools and support of enterprise databases.
Simply create lists of your menu settings, with the click of a button, and combine them into scripts to run RockWorks in batch mode or from another program.
If you use RockWorks to create multiple diagrams from your project data, such as sequential cross sections or date-specific models, these “RCL” scripts are a life-saver! Especially if new data becomes available – just enter the data, start your script, and go have lunch; when you return, your maps, models, sections, fences, etc. will be waiting for you.
MS-SQL Server Database Support
The default RockWorks database is a SQLite database. With RockWorks Advanced, you can also set up a connection to an MS-SQL database for company-wide connectivity.
Create a “3D Fault File” in the Utilities, then activate this in your surface modeling, stratigraphy modeling, and/or solid (block) modeling settings to isolate the modeling within faulted regions. It applies a barrier during modeling such that the data on the other side of the fault (relative to the node currently being estimated) will not influence the node. Simple or complex fault “ribbons” can be used.
Define single faults or multiple, each with two or more X, Y, Z, dip-direction, dip-angle measurements.
Oil and Gas Production Data
A new Production table has been added to the RockWorks17 database for storing well production data by date and for generating a variety of graphs in 2D and 3D.
Import Commercial Land Grids
RockWorks comes with a free “LandBase” of US Range-Township-Section locations, gleaned from a variety of public sources. This is available for all levels of the program.
If you’ve purchased a detailed land grid from a commercial source, you can import that data into the LandBase for use in your projects using RockWorks Advanced. RockWorks reads data from IHS (Petroleum Information / Dwights), TMC (Topographic Mapping Company), Tobin / GII/ASCII-31, Tobin / TDRBM II, and White Star.
