Release Notes
Blueback Investigator brings long-awaited powerful cross-domain data analysis to Petrel. The custom windows provide unique visualization ideas to improve your understanding of the data. Blueback Investigator provides statistical analysis tools you can apply to understand well, table and point data, 2D and 3D seismic, 3D model properties and surface attributes.
  • Plot data with up to 20 continuous dimensions
  • Custom plot windows supporting multi-dimensional datasets including histogram, crossplots and 3D plots
  • Excellent integration with Petrel allows investigation to be co-visualized in standard Petrel windows
  • Identify trends and classify the data and use these to generate new properties
  • Rich selection of controls for managing plot appearance, annotations, filtering and creating equations for data correlation
  • Petrel filters and functions can also be applied and included
  • Blueback Spatial Selector - select data interactively
  • Integrate rock physics models from Blueback Rock Physics
Version 5.0 dramatically improves performance allowing investigation of 1000s of wells simultaneously across multiple dimensions. The new simple regression analysis option is easier and more flexible to use and has more options. Create investigations more simply by automatically selecting the data displayed in a Petrel window with a single click from the new ribbon commands.
