Option 1: You can classify your wells by including a “Type” or “Keyword” column in the collars table.
- In the first empty column in the collars table, enter a name for each class of wells (for example, well type like “Abandoned”, “Oil with gas show”, and “Oil”).
- Right click on this column and click Create Scheme.
- In the New Scheme dialog, the Table Name and Column Name should be set automatically, and the Scheme Type should be Keyword. Set the Scheme Name and click OK.
- In the map view, click on the Wells 1 layer in the Object Manager.
- On the Wells page in the Property Manager, check the box next to Use keyword scheme for symbols and then set the Keyword scheme to the scheme you created in step 3 above.
- To edit the symbol properties in the scheme:
- Click Home | Display | Scheme Editor.
- Under the Keyword section, expand the scheme.
- Select each item in the scheme to view and change the properties.
- Click OK when finished editing to apply the changes to the map.
Option 2: Use a different collars table for each well group.
Another option is to separate the well information into multiple collars tables. Once you have multiple collars tables, you can add a second Wells layer to the map by clicking Map | Add | Well Layer and selecting the second collars table. You can turn the visibility of one Wells layer on or off, or adjust the symbol properties for each layer by
- Selecting the well layer in the Object Manager.
- Unchecking the Use keyword scheme for symbols check box on the Wells page in the Property Manager.
- Changing the symbol properties on the Symbol page.
Note: If you choose this method, you cannot create a cross section from multiple collars tables.
