GOM3 Update - December 2022

Tie-back Tool Webinar

As a reminder, we are holding a free webinar on the Tie-back Tool on Wednesday, December 7th. The Tie-back Tool is an excellent addition to get a quick idea of some challenges that may lie ahead on potential pipeline routes. Registration is now available here. An overview is available in the video below.

14th Annual User Conference

The 14th Annual User Conference is coming March 2nd, 2023. The conference will be held at Murphy's offices in west Houston, as Murphy is graciously willing to host again as they were originally scheduled back in 2020. We are excited to be meeting in person again in Houston after so long.


The conference is intended for geologists, geophysicists, engineers, land specialists, GIS professionals/techs, and managers. The exchange of ideas and directions for our future development are still the top priority of the conference. Like past conferences, this event will present details about improvements from the past year and a look at future plans. It will also showcase some of the huge additions available since the last conference, particularly 3D seismic in ArcGIS, 3D well logs along boreholes, drilling analytics and forecasts and online well log displays. The conference will feature the introduction of Shazam, a revolutionary analysis to identify pay vs. dry sections in digital logs automatically.

We will have more details in future newsletters, but registration is now available here. We look forward to seeing you then.

Online Well Log Viewer

Viewing digital well logs within a web page is now available when clicking on a well in GOMsmart or ArcGIS. Based on the roughly 46,000 digital well logs obtained for over 5,000 wells (most wells drilled since 2004), a “golden set” of standard log curves for each well was derived out of the nearly half million curves from these logs. There are three grouped displays: geology & geophysical logs, mud logs and mechanical logs. Further context has been added to the last track, displaying paleo observations, geomarkers, hydrocarbon bearing zones, mud weights and completion intervals gathered and integrated from GOM3 (and in some cases, the Geophysical Addon).

Please watch this overview of the well log viewer below. If you would like to immediately view logs in GOMsmart, they can be chosen here.
