PetroVisual Celebrates 5th Birthday with New Features!

December 2017

It's official: PetroVisual is now 5 years old!

To celebrate our birthday, we are adding new drilldown features to PetroVisual:

Bar Chart Drilldown. Select multiple bars to view drilldown data.
Pie Chart Drilldown. Select multiple pie slices to view drilldown data.
Funnel Chart Drilldown. Select multiple funnel sections to view drilldown data.

And, before we forget:

Happy holidays to all of our customers, friends, and business associates!

Somewhere Over The Rainbow

November 2017

PetroVisual supports a number of ways to determine colors for graph and map symbols:

Assign a color: Set all of my symbols blue.
Select a color gradient: Select symbol colors between green and yellow to indicate the size of my oil reserves.
Define color rules: Use red for my gas well symbols and use green for my oil well symbols.

And now, we offer a new color tool: Rainbow gradients!

Rainbow gradients assign colors of the rainbow using a range of values in a data field. For example, if you select a rainbow gradient for your gas reserves, your symbols with smallest reserves will be blue and the colors will transition to green, yellow, orange, and red as the reserve values increase.

Rainbow gradients are available with:

Scatter Plot Symbols
Probit Graph Symbols
Map Symbols
Map Bubbles

PetroVisual gives you the colors of the rainbow - with a single mouse click!

PetroVisual v2.50 Released!

July 2017

PetroVisual v2.50 is now available and includes powerful data filters for all of your visualizations:

Add filters to each visualization to specify exactly what data you want to see.
Use the intuitive data filter editor to create rich slices of your data.
Update your visualizations dynamically as you change your data filters.
Toggle your data filters with a simple checkbox docked directly below your maps, graphs, and charts.

Data filters truly add a new level of analysis to all of your work in PetroVisual.

Can you tell we're excited about this release?

Data Filters

Data Filters Part II

June 2017

Work continues on the new data filters functionality. We have now added data filters to scatter plots, probit graphs, pie charts, funnel charts, bar charts, maps, and heat maps. After testing and gathering feedback from our beta testers, we should be on track to release a new build of PetroVisual next month. Stay tuned!

Data Filters = Analytic Goodness

May 2017

When you create query filters and then run a query in PetroVisual, you retrieve the data from your project that matches your query criteria. It's a simple process, but the results are powerful: you have precise control over the data you want to analyze.

To extend this workflow, we are now adding data filters to individual data visualizations!

Data filters allow each visualization to display a subset of records from your query results:

Do you only want to see wells with large reserves on your map? Add a data filter to the map.
Do you want to compare well performance across two counties on a bar chart? Add a data filter to the bar chart.
Do you only want to see data in your scatter plot where well depth is greater than 8,000 feet? Add a data filter to the scatter plot.

Data filters can be added for any data field in the data set, and multiple filters can be defined for each visualization.

We think you will agree that data filters are a great addition to the PetroVisual toolbox!

PetroVisual v2.45 Released!

April 2017

We are excited to announce the release of PetroVisual v2.45!

Here is a quick summary of the major features:

Interactive map layer. View header, production, and forecast data for all active wells in 20 states.
Redesigned query editor. Streamlined query filters and the ability to query your data from a map!
Improved access to PHDWin project data. We now connect more of your PHDWin data by default.
New data field settings tools. Edit labels, units, and formats for data fields in a specific project.
Lots of updates to the tab control. Change tab order with drag and drop. Use new tab-based menus to manage and undock your tabs.

And, for those people who really enjoy lists, keep reading for even more features included in this release.

Are you interested in previewing the new code? Send an e-mail to and let us know!

Query Editor Recap

February 2017

The work on the new query editor is finally complete!

Here is a recap of the new features:

Streamlined interface. We moved all of the buttons to a common toolbar to match the rest of the PetroVisual look-and-feel.

Happy Holidays!

December 2016

Happy holidays to all of our customers, friends, and business associates!

2016 was another great year for PetroVisual, and we can't wait to see what 2017 will bring.

Keep your eye on this news page for future exciting announcements!

Probit Graphs

September 2015

This month, we are excited to announce a new visualization tool:

Probit Graphs!

Allow me to speak like an engineer for a moment:

Probit Graphs allow the user to display any numeric data value in a normal or lognormal scale related to the probabilistic X scale for all the included data points. The Probit Graph supports multiple data sets, presents the user with a linear fit of each data stream, and displays the associated curve values like P10, P50, and P90. Probit Graphs also allow the user to change symbol shape, size and color to identify other trends in the data set.

And, like all of the data visualizations in PetroVisual, Probit graphs can be created with a couple of mouse clicks. Who says you can't have power and simplicity?

PetroVisual Gets A Facelift

August 2015

In our never-ending quest to maximize screen real estate, we are streamlining all of our visualization tools to better showcase your data. Settings panels that used to float on top of our maps, charts, and grids are now moving to consolidated toolbars. Likewise, all of our toolbars are being reworked to offer consistent graphics, labels, and button order.

The end result? More screen space for your data visualizations and more consistency for your user interface.

We like the word "more" - and we hope our customers do too!

PetroVisual v2.29 Released

July 2015

Another month, another PetroVisual release! Following close on the heels of our June release, PetroVisual v2.29 is now available.

Here are the cool new features:

Interactive map layer. View active well spots from 6 states on our map and click the wells to see header, production, and forecast data.
Multiple Y axes in PetroPlot. Display your PetroPlot data across 8 different Y axes.
Draggable axes in PetroPlot. Drag X and Y axes in PetroPlot to quickly change scales and ranges.
ProdEval data source. Connect and visualize your ProdEval databases.

Got Wells?

June 2015

June proved to be another exciting month for PetroVisual customers:

We added a free interactive well layer to the PetroVisual map!

Every active well in Texas, Oklahoma, New Mexico, Colorado, Utah, and North Dakota is now available (and yes, more states will soon follow). Not only can you see the wells in PetroVisual, but you can also click on the well spots to view free well header data like operator, field, formation, and more.

This is a powerful (and did we mention it's free?) enhancement to the PetroVisual platform that will allow our customers to view offset wells.


PetroVisual v2.26 Released!

May 2015

6 months of development. 60 new features. Countless hours of testing. And now:

PetroVisual v2.26 is ready to go!

To recap, here are the major additions to PetroVisual:

PHDWin and OGRE. Connect to your PHDWin and OGRE data. Automatically!

64-bit Memory Support. Use all of your computer memory to query more wells and load more production data.

This version of PetroVisual had a longer-than-usual development cycle, but we think you will agree that it was worth the wait!

PetroVisual v2.26 PetroVisual v2.26 PetroVisual v2.26

PetroVisual Beta Now Available

April 2015

The code is finished, and PetroVisual is officially in beta testing!

Over the next 45 days, we will be introducing the new version of PetroVisual to some of our customers to learn what works and, more importantly, what doesn't.

Are you interested in kicking the tires of the PetroVisual beta? Send an e-mail to and let us know!

PHDWin: Coming Soon to a PetroVisual Near You

March 2015

Since its introduction in 1996, the PHDWin economics software has enjoyed tremendous popularity in the marketplace. PHDWin has a large and passionate user base, and PHDWin projects contain a wealth of oil and gas data. We know good software when we see it, and adding PHDWin to PetroVisual was an easy decision.

Special thanks to Dave Pacinda, President of TRC Consultants, and Katherine Tronolone, Marketing Manager, for their enthusiasm about PetroVisual!

Lions And Tigers And OGRE. Oh My!

February 2015

Founded in 1978, OGRE Systems is one of the oldest and most respected economics software companies in the industry. We are pleased to announce that the next version of PetroVisual will automatically connect to OGRE projects, giving our customers rich query and visualization tools for their OGRE data. We also want to thank Damien Hutchins, Vice President of Sales at OGRE Systems, for his committed support of PetroVisual.

OGRE is the first of many new data sources that we plan to connect in PetroVisual. Keep watching this news page as we make PetroVisual the indispensable tool for analyzing all of your oil and gas data.

PetroVisual Unleashed!

January 2015

For more than two years, PetroVisual has connected ARIES users to their data.

And now, everything is about to change.

Today, we are announcing a major enhancement to the PetroVisual platform. We are redesigning the software to support data sources outside of ARIES, including your Access, SQL Server, and Oracle databases.

The idea is simple: one piece of software that works with all of your oil and gas data assets.

Stay tuned as we release more details about this exciting new chapter in PetroVisual development.

Query Manager

December 2014

The new interface that we introduced last month prompted us to rethink how queries are organized. To improve on the original query list in the navigation tree, we have designed a new query screen where you can create, manage, and run your queries:

New query grid. View your queries in a hierarchical grid with columns that display important query details.
Improved query organization. Organize your queries by name, data source, data view, or last run date.
Import and export. Import and export your queries with convenient buttons docked below the query grid.
Consolidated tools. All of your tools to add, edit, delete, and run queries are available in one place.

In other news, PetroVisual is two years old. Happy birthday to us!

Query Manager

User Interface Improvements

November 2014

The PetroVisual navigation tree serves as the control panel to access your queries and settings. The only downside to the navigation tree? It takes up valuable space on the screen that is better utilized for your maps, graphs, and pivot tables. To solve this problem, we have rotated the navigation tree to a simple horizontal menu bar across the top of PetroVisual's main window. The layout and options are still the same, but now your pixels are free for more important things, like displaying our cool new tile maps!

Same great taste. Just less filling.

New UI New UI New UI

Tile Maps

October 2014

It's time to announce another HUGE new feature for PetroVisual: tile maps!

Similar in functionality to Google and Bing maps, the new PetroVisual tile map engine has world-wide coverage and improved graphics. We will initially provide detailed map data in the United States and southern Canada, and we plan to add map data to other countries based on customer feedback.

Check out the screen captures below for a preview of our exciting new map technology!

64 Bits of Goodness

September 2014

PetroVisual will be going through some seismic changes over the next several months, starting with support for 64-bit Windows. What does this mean to you? If you run PetroVisual on a 64-bit version of Windows, PetroVisual can now use more of your computer's memory to load data.

More wells, more production data, more of everything!

PetroVisual v2.00 Released!

August 2014

Could summer really get any better?

Meet George Jetson

July 2014

For decades, people have been predicting that cars will fly, but outside of The Jetsons, the idea of a hover car never seems to materialize. In contrast, PetroVisual is doing its part to advance the science of hovering - our map now supports fully configurable mouse hover text!

Create up to five different lines of text, including user-entered text and database values, and this text will hover on the map as you mouse over your wells.

Mouse hover text may not be as cool as hover cars, but at least our technology is something you can use today!

Mouse Hover Text Mouse Hover Text

PetroVisual Road Shows

July 2014

The PetroVisual team will be traveling to Oklahoma City, Denver, and Tulsa over the coming months to meet with our users, talk to potential customers, and spread the word about our software. Are you interested in attending? Is there another city we should add to the list? Send an e-mail to and let us know!

Lots of New Map Features

June 2014

The map is one of our most popular visualizations in PetroVisual. Whether you need to analyze data with contours, animate your production data with time bubbles, or color-code your well spots by economic life, the PetroVisual map provides a great balance of power and simplicity.

To further position the map as your favorite tool for spatial intelligence, we have added some tempting new features and shortcuts:

Distance tracking. Rectangular select, circle select, and zoom now show distance in miles as you drag across the map.
Contour z-value tracking. Move your mouse over any contour and the height of the contour is now presented in the tool bar.
Right mouse button panning. Click the right mouse button and drag to pan the map, no matter what mode you are currently in.
Map bubble labels. Add labels to your bubbles to show the bubble value on the map.
Time bubble titles. Time bubble animations now display a title that describes the current data set and date.
Improved label settings. Select border and background colors for all map labels.

The Calculation Editor

May 2014

The Calculation Editor is one of the more powerful features in PetroVisual, and we are happy to announce lots of new upgrades to this tool:

New functions. Use more than a dozen new functions to manipulate text and perform calculations.
Improved editing. Insert functions and variables where your cursor is located in the formula.
Context-sensitive help. View tool tips that describe functions, parameters, and usage examples.
Integrated test results. Test your calculations with real data and directly from the editor with the new Test button.

These new features will be available in our commercial release this summer. Stay tuned to this news page for more updates!

Calculation Editor Calculation Editor Calculation Editor

Peak Rate Type Curves

April 2014

We make it a top priority to listen to our users, and peak rate type curves are officially the most often requested feature that people want to see in PetroVisual. The idea is simple: scan production data for a number of months to locate the highest rate, and then create type curves using the date of that highest rate.

PetroVisual offers best-of-industry tools for building type curves. Because of our great user feedback, PetroVisual type curves are now even better.

Peak Rate Type Curves Peak Rate Type Curves Peak Rate Type Curves

PetroVisual v1.85 Released

March 2014

Spring is finally making an appearance out here in snowy Colorado, and what better way to celebrate Spring than to release a new version of PetroVisual?

With the addition of time bubbles and updated grids and pivot tables, PetroVisual v1.85 should give you lots of reasons to celebrate!

Time Bubbles

February 2014

Imagine bubbles floating through the air on a warm summer breeze. Peaceful and soothing, right?

Now think about your oil and gas production data.

Are you still feeling peaceful?

If not, you might be interested in a brand new PetroVisual feature: Time bubbles!

Highlight wells on the map and click the new Time Bubbles button. Select monthly or daily historical production data, including user-defined calculations like GOR, and drag a scrollbar to see animated bubbles float across the map.

With full control over colors, labels, sums, averages, and timeframes, our new time bubble feature will have you at peace with your production data in no time...

Time Bubbles Time Bubbles Time Bubbles

Grids and Pivot Tables Get Some Love

January 2014

Work has started on updating both the grid and the pivot table. Perhaps not the flashiest tools in the PetroVisual toolbox, grids and pivot tables are still the everyday workhorses for sorting, summing, and grouping your tabular data.

New grid features include:

Drilldown. Highlight grid data and drop this data into bar charts, maps, and other visualizations.
Column filters. Set filters on any column in the grid to show only the data that you want to see.
Column totals. Define sums, averages, counts, minimums, and maximums for each column in the grid.
Column groups. Group your grid data by any column with a simple drag-and-drop.
Text search. Search grid text and display only those rows that match your search criteria.

And, the pivot table has these updates:

Updated interface. Modern settings panels alongside tools to rename, duplicate, and delete.
Improved settings. Column widths and filters are now automatically stored in the settings.
Print preview. New preview window offers better control of print settings.
Cell totals. Sums, averages, and counts displayed for selected cells.

We gave the grid and pivot table some love - we think you'll love them too!

Happy Birthday To Us!

December 2013

PetroVisual celebrates its one year birthday today, and we want to thank all of our customers for making PetroVisual an unqualified success.

Going forward, our goal is simple: relentless improvement of the PetroVisual platform to provide powerful and easy access to your oil and gas data.

Stick around - we're just getting started!

Summary Queries

November 2013

Sometimes, you just need a quick answer.

No details, just the facts:

How much oil production do I have by county by year?
What is my average economic life by field?
How much should I bet when trying to draw an inside straight?

We are working on a new feature - called summary queries - that retrieves only the data results that you need. You can still create all of our word-class visualizations with summary query results, but you no longer need to slog through thousands of records to get answers.

Summary queries: just another tool to give you monster control over your oil and gas data.

New Bar Chart

November 2013

The bar chart is getting an updated user interface that makes it easier on the eyes and easier to use. Sleek floating panels neatly organize the bar chart settings. Rename, duplicate, and delete options are now conveniently available. Multi-line dynamic titles and extensive color options round out the upgrades to our bar chart tool.

PetroVisual v1.62 Released

October 2013

We released PetroVisual v1.62 today. Here are the highlights:

Shared license support.
Petroplot zoom settings to control axis data ranges.
Minor improvements to database and memory management.

Download and enjoy!

Bang! Zoom! Straight to the Moon!

October 2013

With apologies to Ralph Kramden, we are working on a new zoom feature in our PetroPlot visualization tool.

Regular users of PetroVisual already know what our PetroPlot tool can offer:

Lightning-fast production curve summaries from thousands of wells.
Multiple forecast scenarios on the same graph.
Production data and forecasts grouped by field, operator, status, or any other data value in your ARIES data.
Types curves calculated across any wells in your ARIES projects.

The new zoom capability allows you to configure graph axis ranges to auto-fit or display a defined range of data. Do you need to see your production data for a specific date range? Enter the start date and end date on the new zoom settings panel, and all of your graphs will honor this date range.

See screen shots of the new zoom settings panel below:

Zoom Settings PetroPlot After Zoom

Share (verb): To use or enjoy something with others.

October 2013

We have just finished a major addition to our licensing model:

Shared licenses!

Shared licenses allow multiple users to access PetroVisual using a pool of available licenses. For example, your company can purchase 5 shared licenses and create 20 user accounts, allowing any 5 of the 20 users to run PetroVisual at the same time.

Flexible and efficient, shared licenses are a great way to let everyone in your company benefit from PetroVisual's powerful capabilities.

Sharing has never been easier!
