RokDoc PressureView - 1 Day Course - Training Course by Ikon Science

RokDoc PressureView - 1 Day Course

Available as a public course
Available as a private in-house course

This course provides an introduction to RokDoc PressureView, to allow the user view a variety of pressure data and log types in a single integrated package. No previous experience of using RokDoc is required.

This course provides an introduction to the fundamentals of subsurface pressure data and examples of how such data may be viewed in RokDoc PressureView. Pressure and overpressure in the subsurface will be discussed, to familiarise people with basic concepts and terminology, but will not be in-depth training. The course is a user’s guide to RokDoc PressureView, with hands on training using real data sets from the North Sea and Gulf of Mexico.


Full Course Outline

  • Opening a project in RokDoc and using a Reference Project File to export pre-existing data
  • Creation of well lists
  • Viewing pressure data
  • Creation of Single and Multi-well plots
  • Data interrogation, identification of fluid gradients and contacts
  • Use on-screen annotation, other functions and exporting plots
  • Loading markers, creating working intervals and importing logs
  • Navigating around the RokDoc PressureView window
  • Viewing different plot types
