PackPro v3.1 Released
Published On : 13/05/2017

PackPro v3.1 has been released and is now available for download. This update includes the following new features and improvements:


1. Well

- Well survey is now shown graphically

- User can now specify the water temperature profile, which supports both shallow and deepwater environments


2. Completions

- Washpipe eccentricity input has been moved from the advanced options screen to the running string tab to make it more accessible

- Shunt packing factor input has been moved from the advanced options screen to the shunt tubes tab to make it more accessible


3. Pumping

- Detailed well fluid reference parameter now shows flow path volumes and MDs based on the user selection

- User can now define the amount of blank packing assumed in the calculation of gravel required on the schedule screen (note that this is for reference only and has no impact on the simulation or results).

- Resolution of gauge data and trend analysis charts now improves with zoom to provide both performance and accuracy (on zooming, the data is resampled at a higher resolution).


4. Advanced Options

- Washpipe eccentricity and shunt packing factor inputs have been moved to the completions screen (see previous note)

- Added option to limit the gravel friction multiplier to specific deviations (this has applications in simulating the potential impact of gravel “sag” due to inadequate suspension in high deviations)

- Re-organized layout of some inputs for clarity


5. Results and Reporting

- Re-enabled the crosshair on the simulate displacement and packing animation chart so users can see the values of pack height ration and MD

- Loading time of reporting screen has been significantly improved with optimizations in chart generation

- Simulate module charts (including chart configuration, title, description, annotations and markers) are now copied with the scenario so users do not need to recreate them

- Resolution of reporting charts now improves with zoom to provide both performance and accuracy (on zooming, the data is resampled at a higher resolution).

- Fixed a bug which caused an error when using optimize with charts containing multiple data types on a single axis


6. General

- Fixed a memory management issue which may cause the file to crash with an “out of memory” error after several executions (particularly when using the evaluate module with a significant amount of data)

- Improved performance when files are located on a network/server

- Fixed a bug which caused some text to disappear in specific configurations

- Miscellaneous bug fixes and minor improvements


If you're using a previous version of PackPro, simply click the "check updates" button on the help toolbar to download and install the latest version at any time. We recommend running your existing simulation/evaluation files again to ensure you have the latest results.
