GeoQuest Releases Upgrade to QLA well log analysis software (June 1998)

GeoQuest have released an upgrade to QLA well log analysis software, a petrophysical interpretation application for use on a PC.

QLA 3.0 features simultaneous display of data from multiple wells for easy correlation of zones and markers. "We combined the multiwell display functionality with a 32-bit architecture to increase QLA's speed and accuracy," said Frank McKay, vice president of Software Product Commercialization and Support for GeoQuest. "Petrophysicists can now see more data at the same time and make better interpretations." Newly designed for Windows 95 or Windows NT, QLA's point-and-click graphical interface is easy to use for beginning or experienced log analysts. Users can convert paper logs into digital format or import Log ASCII Standard (LAS), flat ASCII files or Tape Image Format (TIF) files. With this release, logs also can be imported from GeoQuest's OilField Manager production database application that stores, accesses and analyzes reservoir data.

QLA offers the option of working in the office, at the wellsite or on the go. The interactive log analysis also features

standard or customized crossplots to compute the hydrocarbon and water saturation as well as the porosity, permeability and lithology of the reservoir

display of logs from different dates and locations, which lets the user perform comparative analyses
