Petro Data Miner at its core, features two types of reports: A Well Report, and a Production Report. While we are adding new types of reports and have capabilities to create any type of custom reports for our clients, the Well and Production Reports form the foundation of information delivery at PDM.
Well Reports emphasize geological and geographic well information, such as API Number, Total Vertical Depth, Operating Depths, Well Name, Number and Location, just to name a few of the more common categories, while Production Reports emphasize more numerical information such as Cumulative Oil/Gas Production, Production for certain periods, Peak Production, Months Produced, and more.
Each of these reports are available in three formats: Basic, Drill-Down, and Specialized. Basic reports are generally where research begins, offering a detailed insight into basic well health or production numbers. Drill-Down reports focus in greater detail on well health or production with search parameters focused on finding answers to very specific, exploratory questions. Finally, the Specialized reports include extrapolated or calculated information, or they may be built from search requests not included in our standard search parameter categories.
Regardless of the type of report selected, each PDM reports consists of 4 parts:
- Cover Page
- Main Body
- Summary Page
Cover Page contains the following elements: Report Title section details the type of the report. As detailed above they can be separated in 3 main categories with potential several subcategories. Part of the title following the hyphen states what is the Primary Identifier of the report. These are determined by you, the client and they can be operator name, location (state/county), production type, etc.
Section below this are the KEY IDENTIFIERS. This is a list of search parameters as chosen by the client which dictates the exact information presented in the body of the report. We current offer over 60 different key identifiers to choose from, though we work hard to make each report as focused and insightful as we can without overloading them with information.
Last important element on the page are the report generation dates which can be found in lower right corner of the report. These show both the date on which the report was generated as well as the date when the report data was last updated.
Top Page of the report is the first page in the report after the cover page and as such it contains a couple of the summaries before displaying the results of the research.
First summary contains key unifying location factors such as Field Name (as per client request or the well location) or Formation, State, and County/Parish. This is where you will also find the current contact information for the operator presented in the report.
Below that are the REPORT PARAMETERS and the WELL SUMMARY. This parameter summary differs from the one found on the cover page in that it shows the key parameters in the report based on the actual findings versus the initial request. Well summary on the other hand shows the quantity of wells per Well Status and is useful to asses the report potential, P&A liability, and a lot more.
Main body of this page contains the actual mined, analyzed, and formatted well/production information. Each column represents all of the key search parameters as per client request as well as additional information columns added by us, which make the displayed information complete, more valuable, and easier to interpret.
Generally this will be the last page in the report itself though the add-ons, if there are any, would be attached after it.
First important element to look at is the TOTALS section of the main report content. As you can see in the included example this is where all the mathematical summaries are shown. In case of extrapolated information generally we will include an add-on containing requisite charts and graphs. Otherwise you will find any relevant math included in the report summarized in the TOTALS section.
Below that is the COMMENT section. This is where we enter all notes and comments relevant to the information displayed in the report that is not immediately evident, or cannot be other represented in the body of the report.
Last notable section on the "closing" page is the disclaimer section. While it is somewhat self-explanatory it is worth noting that as we add new data sources to PDM we will be listing them in-brief in this section for your information.
One of the most frequently requested report add-ons are our custom-built maps. They are built to enhance the visual well representation and are a great way to enhance the report findings. We offer several types of maps such as aerial layer (shown in the photo), S/T/R grid, basin map layer, just to name a few.
Much like the reports and remaining add-on types, PDM maps are fully customizable to your needs and on your request. This make them a valuable companion and a compliment to the Well and Production report.
Additionally we can include graphs, diagrams, and charts as PDR reports add-ons to further enhance both the raw data, and the extrapolated/derived information found in PDM Well & Production reports. This adds another level of precision and focus to PDM, and allows the reports to be truly fine tuned to even the most specific needs you may have.
