/ New Features

New Features
Release Notes , PERF ORM Toolkit, PT K

The following new features are part of PTK 3.1:


SPIN workflow which enables you to monitor the stuck pipe tendencies. The
software computes the actual friction factor of the borehole and allows you to
monitor the changes throughout the drilling operations.
Three features are provided to aid stuck pipe monitoring:
SPIN Plots
SPIN Alarm Panel
SPIN Advanced Numeric Gauge
Three new Defined Functions to be used mainly with DMM downhole
measurements as inputs
DMM Tool Curvature
Plugged Nozzle Detector
Underreamer weight and torque
DMM Wellbore Curvature Estimate workflow in the Torque and Drag
engine to derive an estimate of the borehole curvature from the real-time
DMM bending moment measurement
Support Proximity workflow which enables you to publish the work done in
PTK such as computations and observations.

7.1

Outstanding SMRs
PTK SMRs are recorded into SWIFT (http://swift.slb.com). You can query the
outstanding SMRs to know the product development status.
Product Line: Drilling & Measurement
Product Name: PTK (2.1, 3.0, and 3.1)

7.2

7.2.1

Known Issues
General
Plots
After you reopen a project, the vertical depth plots might display on a horizontal
view.
Workaround: Right-click in the log window, and then click Change Index to
Vertical for the vertical view.

7.2.2

Gang Time/Depth Plot


Once you create the plots and want to re-assign the data, you need to close
and reopen the window because the dialog box will not be available any more.
The available time gang plots to you are:
Time cross plot.
Time vs. depth plot.
The available depth gang plots to you are:
Depth cross plot.
Broomstick plot.

/ Known Issues

7.2.3

Synchronized Log
The Position of the red line of the depth log in the synchronized log sometimes
will not synchronize with the time data.

7.2.4

Hydraulics
Hydraulic Model cannot handle Reamer while Drilling (RWD) BHA.

7.2.5

Rig State
Rig State will not compute continuously if you use CRPM as source of rotation
especially during tripping out or tripping in. Rig State will start to compute when
rotation is detected after the trip activity.

7.2.6

Wellbore Geometry
When you change OD or ID of an activity in the Wellbore Geometry, clicking the
Activity will produce an exception which would not affect PTK.

7.2.7

Plotting Plan Survey and Actual Survey on a Depth


Cross Plot
If the plan surveys are plotted together with the actual survey on the same axis
and you change the depth interval, the position of the two lines might switch.

7.2.8

DMM Wellbore Curvature Estimate (Bending)


Computation
The software does not compute the Wellbore Curvature Estimate when the build
rate is 0.5 deg/100 ft and when the bending moment measurement is below
the model bending moment at 0 deg/100 ft. This is to ensure that the algorithm
outputs a high confidence estimation.

/ Known Issues

7.2.9

10

Partial Underreamer/Hole opener support


PTK 3.1 supports the underreamer/borehole opener component computation in
the TAD and DMM Wellbore Curvature Estimate features. The computations
mentioned simulates the wellbore geometry with dual hole size (bit hole size from
bit to underreamer/hole opener and underreamer/hole opener cutter size to last
casing depth) during on-bottom drilling.
The software uses the Max Drill Hole Diameter parameter, which you input in
the BHA Editor, in the computation for the hole size above the underreamer or
holeopener BHA component.
The Tripping Load Analysis (TLA) and RT Hydraulics do not utilize the dual
hole size.

7.2.10

Sidetrack Wizard sequencing logic


The sidetrack wizard feature logic has been identified through the user Software
Modification Report (SMR) to not fully meet the user requirements. The issue
is not addressed in PTK 3.1.

7.2.11

Hydraulic Computation Performance


The fix in the logic of the hydraulics computation in PTK 3.1 has impacted the
computation speed.
The historical hydraulics computation takes a longer time in PTK 3.1 compared
to PTK 3.0 but produces more accurate results.

7.2.12

Actual Survey Update


PTK is not designed for complex survey management. When survey points from
a real-time data source come in PTK, they will be the same as the server ones
and you will not be able to make changes during the data streaming.
In offline mode you will be able to edit existing survey or create a new one. When
you re-establish the real-time connection, any survey at a deeper depth than
the existing ones will be appended and any survey at a shallower depth will be
discarded. This means that if you had made any changes, these will be retained.

/ Known Issues

7.2.13

11

Annotations
The position of the plot annotations is not associated with the indexes or
values on the plots. This means that when you change the unit system, the
locations of the annotations will not change, even if the indexes are updated
to the new units.
The annotations text will not be visible when you print a log with MaxWell
header.

7.2.14

Importing/Exporting Issues DOX Related


When you import an ASCII format survey file into Drilling Office X 2.8, the
software will only take the first 3 columns in the following order: MD, inclination
and azimuth.
If you want to export the survey data to a CSV file from PTK for DOX 2.8 to
import it, please select Inclination as the first channel and Azimuth as the
second channel in the Select Channels dialog box.

7.2.15

Log Printing
When the AutoFitWidth check box is selected, and if there are many tracks in
the log, the index track may become too narrow, and the index number cannot
be printed out. To solve the problem, before printing, please make the index
track wide enough to show the index number. For details about how to make
a track wider, please refer to To set the properties for a track in section 12.3
Configuring Tracks in PTK Online Help.

7.2.16

Non-English Local Setting


PTK will not work properly in non-English local setting. Some features may not
work well and the Changepoint Detector is one of them. Please check Start>
Control Panel >Region and Language Options with Win 7.

Problem with Running PTK Software Without


Administrator Privilege
PTK has to be installed and ran with administrator privilege, otherwise there will
not be full access to product files. Refer to InTouch Content ID 4227785 for
information on how to handle the access right error.

7.2.18

Project Size
Some data files may not be cleaned and this causes the project folder size to
increase. It is suggested to run the file cleaner utility to reduce the project size.

7.2.19

Project Storage
PTK stability issues can occur when you store the PTK project on the server
rather than the local drive. Refer to InTouch SQ Alert 001 for more information.

7.2.20

PTK Data Source


The data source that is transmitting data to InterACT should not publish a
comment/text with &, which is a WITSML reserved character, otherwise the
download will not succeed.

7.2.21

Channel Names and Mapping


When a custom channel is published from PTK to InterACT, the maximum
number of characters for the channel name is limited to 32. If the length
exceeds the limit, the channel will not be published.
For a channel to be displayed in PTK, the maximum number of characters
for the channel name has to be less than 45. Please do not exceed this limit
when you do channel mapping, otherwise the channel will not be created in
the system.
If a channel is not defined in the PTK channel preference list, the channel
name will be by default set to the channel code. Typical examples are the
ROPO output channels which originally have descriptive names but these
are then overridden to channel code when written to PTK.

7.2.23

Source of Out-of-Memory Issue on the Time vs.


Depth Plot
Refer to InTouch Content ID 5874948. The third party cross plot control in PTK
has a memory leak bug when PTK is showing the graphics objects representing
activities on the plot. Currently there is no workaround for this issue.
