ResInsight lets the user create new/custom well paths by clicking in the 3D view. A self created well path will behave the same way as an imported well path.
Well targets property editor fields:
Well Targets Appearance
Controls the visibility and appearance of spheres at well target locations in addition to 3D interaction handles. The 3D interaction handles will be visible only when the Well Target object is selected, but the spheres will be always be visible if enabled.
List of all defined well targets. The editor will have a contrast background color when in picking state.
The other columns defined by the “Est”-prefix displays the result of dog leg and direction values produced by the well path geometry estimation algorithm.
A well path defined by well targets may be edited by either editing coordinates in the property editor or clicking and dragging targets in the 3D view.
Clicking and dragging the blue part of a target, it can be moved along the Z axis only. Clicking and dragging the magenta part of a target, it can be moved freely around.
To duplicate an existing well path, select Duplicate from the right-click menu of a well path in the Project Tree or right-click on the well path geometry in the 3D view. This operation will create a new well path with a set of well targets.
The full geometry of the new well path is an estimate of the source well path, so the geometry might differ slightly.
When the well target handles are active in the 3D view, the following operations are possible when pressing left mouse button on well target handles:
|Mouse Move||Modification of a single target|
|Mouse Move + CTRL||Modification of all well target on selected well (laterals excluded)|
|Mouse Move + CTRL + SHIFT||Modification of all well targets (laterals included)|
The toggle Generate Target at Sea Level is on by default. If the well path is supposed to start at a predefined location at the sea level, the following procedure can be used:
A well plan can be displayed by selecting Show Well Plan from the right-click menu of a generated well path.
