0.5.2, 28 February 2022#

  • Fixed bug #208 which essentially meant rename_alias was always False when getting a well or project as a DataFrame.

  • Fixed bug #209 that prevented Well (and therefore Project) from exporting a DataFrame for some recent versions of pandas.

0.5.1, 18 February 2022#

  • Curve.values now returns a 1D array for a 1D curve.

  • Added Project.basis_range to provide the min and max of all curves in the project.

  • Added a user guide page for Project.

  • Fixed bug #202 with curve indexing.

  • Fixed bug #206 that prevented quality tests from running on aliased curves.

  • Fixed bug #207 that was causing the quality table not to render correctly in some situations.

0.5.0, 14 February 2022#

  • Major change: Everything in welly is now much closer to pandas. Chiefly, Curve objects are now represented by wrapped pandas.DataFrame objects (note: not Series as you might expect, so they can be two-dimensional). They were previously subclassed NumPy ndarray objects, so while we’ve tried to preserve as much of the API as possible, expect some changes. Please let us know if there’s something you miss, it can probably be implemented. Many thanks to the developers that made this happen, especially Patrick Reinhard and Wenting Xiong in the Netherlands.

  • Major change: as previously indicated, the default behaviour is now to load the depth curve in its original units. That is: welly no longer converts everything to metres. Use index='metres' in from_las() to get the old behaviour.

  • Major change: the Well object’s header, well.header, is currently a large pandas.DataFrame containing everything from the LAS file’s header. In the next minor release, we will restore something more like the original header object. We welcome opinions on how this should work.

  • The Curve object should be instantiated with index instead of basis.

  • You can now create a project with welly.read_las('path/to/*.las'). Note: this always gives you a project, even if it only contains a single well. You can get the single well from a path like 'data/myfile.las' with a singleton assignment like well, = welly.read_las('data/myfile.las').

  • As previously indicated, dogleg severity is now given in units of degrees per course length.

  • kwargs are passed to lasio in read_las(), Well.from_las() and Project.from_las(), so you can add things like mnemonic_case='preserve' or ignore_header_errors=True. See the Lasio documentation for more on these options.

  • A new argument on well.to_las() allows you to control the case of the mnemonics in the output LAS file. The behaviour has always been to preserve the case in the data dictionary; choose ‘upper’, ‘title’ or ‘lower’ to change it.

  • New docs! They are live at Feedback welcome!

0.4.10, 22 June 2021#

  • No longer supporting versions of Python before 3.6.

  • Curve.top_and_tail() has been implemented. It removes NaNs from the start and end — but not the middle — of a log.

  • You can now optionally pass any of start, stop and step to Well.unify_basis(). These settings will override the basis you provide, or the basis that welly discovers using Well.survey_basis(). I added an example of using this to the tutorial/02_Curves.iynb tutorial notebook.

  • Relatedly, if you pass any of start, stop and step to Curve.to_basis() it will override the basis you give it, if you give it one.

  • Welly now uses wellpathpy to convert deviation data into a position log. The API has not changed, but position logs can now be calculated with the high and low tangential methods as well.

  • Dogleg severity is still given in radians, but can be normalized per ‘course length’, where course length is a parameter you can pass. Future warning: from v0.5.0, dogleg severity will be passed in degrees and course length will be 30 by default.

0.4.9, 29 January 2021#

  • Fixed a bug that was preventing Alias names from appearing in the DataFrame view, project.df() and well.df. Updated the Project tutorial to reflect this.

  • Fixed a bug that was preventing Aliases from applying properly to well plots.

  • Improved the error you get fro w.plot(tracks=[...]) if there are no curves to plot (e.g. if none of the names exist).

0.4.8, 11 December 2020#

  • Reorganized the tutorials a bit and made sure they all run as-is.

  • A new Location.from_petrel() function accepts a Petrel .dev deviation file. It will extract the x and y location, and the KB, as well as the position log and/or deviation survey.

  • Curve.plot_2d() now handles NaNs in the curve.

  • The test functions now accept a keys argument to limit the number of items the tests will be applied to, or to order the appearance of curves in qc_table_html. For example, if you pass keys=['GR'] then tests will only be run on['GR'], regardless of what’s in the tests dictionary. This was issue #104.

  • You can now pass a pathlib.Path object to from_las. Thank you to Kent Inverarity for implementing this feature.

  • Added XCOORD and YCOORD as standard fields; these are read in as location.x and location.y repsectively.

  • Added Project.plot_map() to make a quick (ugly) scatter plot from x and y location (whatever two field you provide from the location object).

  • Added the filter_wells_by_data() method to Project, and deprecated find_wells_with_curve() and find_wells_without_curve(). You can make complex selections with this function, such as “give me all the wells that have at least two of RHOB, DTC or DTS”.

  • Added the recently added index argument (to preserve depth units) to Project.

  • The LAS header items EKB and EGL are now captured as ekb and egl in the w.location object. KB and GL are captured as kb and gl.

  • Thank you Miguel de la Varga for an update that allows a trajectory to have fewer than 3 points.

  • Thank you DC Slagel for an update that ensures all well header fields are populated with valid types.

0.4.7, 6 June 2020#

  • Load your well in feet! The number one most hated ‘feature’ has been ‘fixed’… you can now pass the index argument to Well.from_las() or Well.from_lasio() to control how the index is interpreted. Use 'existing' or 'original' to keep whatever is specified in the LAS file (probably what you want). To convert to metres, use 'm'; to convert to feet use 'ft'.

  • In the next point release, v0.5, we will change the default behaviour to 'original', so if you want to keep forcing to metres, you’ll have to change your code to Well.from_las(fname, index='m'). There is a FutureWarning about this.

  • The Curve object now has a basis_units attribute carrying this information. Either 'm' or 'ft'.

  • See tutorial/Well_depth_units_v0.4.7.ipynb.

  • Thank you to Kent Inverarity for implementing this long-hoped-for feature.

0.4.6, 7 May 2020#

  • Big fix in Location.

0.4.5, 14 November 2019#

  • Allowed adding the NULL value when writing an LAS file with w.to_las().

0.4.4, 22 October 2019#

  • Dropped support for Python 2.7 and Python 3.4, and added support for Python 3.7 and 3.8.

  • Fixed location, whose changes were inadvertently rolled back.

0.4.3, October 2019#

  • You can now pass an alias dictionary to Well.df(), along with the list of keys. You can pass keys and alias to Project.df() as well.

  • A new function, location.trajectory(), generates an evenly sampled trajectory, given a sample spacing in metres.

  • Added location.plot_plan() and location.plot_3d() for plotting well trajectories.

  • Added a new tutorial notebook, tutorials/Location.ipynb to demonstrate the well path capabilities of Well.location(). The notebook does not cover geographic CRS’s. There’s still a short example in Well.ipynb.

  • Fixed some buggy behaviour when creating ‘empty’ wells, and added example to top of tutorials/Well.ipynb.

  • You can now pass a URL directly to Well.from_las() and it will try to read it.

0.4.2, April 2019#

  • Implemented basis updating when slicing. In general, you probably want to ‘slice’ (get a subcurve) using curve.to_basis() because you can use depth to get the section you want. But if you want to use indexing, like curve[100:110], this operation now updates curve.start so that curve.basis is therefore updated.

  • Breaking change: utils.top_and_tail now only works on single arrays, and returns a single array.

0.4.1, 24 November 2018#

  • Fixed a bug in project.df() that was building the DataFrame incorrectly.

0.4.0, 20 November 2018#

  • There are breaking changes in this release.

  • Export the curves in the current to Pandas DataFrame with well.df(). Previously, this function returned the DataFrame of the associated LAS file, which is still available in well.las.df().

  • Export the curves in the current Project as a Pandas DataFrame with a dual index: UWI and depth.

  • Made the APIs of various functions more consistent, e.g. with keys always being before basis. This regularization will continue.

  • Made the way to retrieve keys more consistent, using the flattened list of keys, if provided, or getting all those keys corresponding to curves, if not. Some of the well methods used to break if there were striplogs in, but they should behave a bit better now.

  • Thanks to Jesper Dramsch, the documentation should now be working again. Thanks Jesper!

  • Added this file.

  • Synthetics don’t work anyway and are definitely broken right now. Test is withheld for now.
