We’re excited to share with you our new feature development that includes a suite of dedicated online applications designed to support the Entire Life of Field concept from design, installation, operation, maintenance and ultimately abandonment through digitalization.
Our new FieldTwin Design 6.1 release brings two new major features and some minor features to the application in addition to bug fixes and optimization. The major features are Shape Support in the new vector layer and Project Linking capabilities.
The new vector layer will be the layer that naturally includes our support for all kinds of vector elements and entities. The initial release enables you to create various shapes, but over time we expect to add other functionality such as markup, redline etc.
At present the following vector shape primitives are available in 2D and 3D: Box, Sphere, Triangle, Circle, Rectangle, Cone, Cylinder, Ring, and Torus. This ability to create new shapes allows project teams to easily create safety-drilling and drop zones, or mark areas for safe sailing access. Users can add various shape input values into their newly created shapes.
Parent Sub Projects
Parent Sub Projects allows project teams to link different sub projects together into a child project. This feature allows for the creation of a sub-project that only includes as an example bathymetry and reservoir data, while another sub-project may contain wellbore trajectories.
By linking these projects to the child project, engineers can focus on field design and layout whilst having the bathymetry and well data as a project backdrop. If the sub-project with bathymetry/reservoir data gets updated with more or better bathymetry then your project is updated automatically.
Furthermore, by using FieldTwin User Roles and Project Permissions you can easily control who can upload, modify and/or remove 3D Surfaces, and only allow the projects to be linked into other projects.
To find out more about this feature please see our online documentation.
Users have greater control over metadata
We’ve added back in Sample Frequency and Elevation Change threshold settings to the Connection Profile module. Now users can also export selected profiles directly from the module; this will now append the multiple selected connections into a single continuous profile. Users can now also control which metadata items that are displayed in the metadata infobox that is shown in the Viewport.
New ‘Asset Statuses’ feature added
We have added a new setting entry to the Account Settings option, Asset Statuses. This section allows users to create visual status conditions that can be applied to an asset to indicate an asset state that can be defined by the user e.g. obsolete, to be installed etc. The Asset Status can also be set and modified using the API.
