Important Considerations
Workstation
Server
Network
Enerdeq Desktop users may create very large and complex maps that contain
thousands of data points. Workstation resources dictate performance and
usability. Three key resources are especially important: Processor, RAM, and
video card. Upgrading these components will improve performance.
Enerdeq requires an application server to efficiently run the Microsoft SQL
Server database engine. Enerdeq Desktop clients can submit complex SQL
queries to the Enerdeq SQL server database, which performance analysis
shows to be very CPU intensive. Consider dual Xeon processors. RAID arrays
will ensure fast Disk I/O as well as provide HDD redundancy. Ideally,
Enerdeq shouldn't be installed on a Domain Controller, Exchange server, or
any high-traffic server.
Network I/O is of paramount importance in any client/server environment.
Servers should use Gigabit Ethernet to the backbone switch and minimum 100
Mbps Ethernet to desktops. Use good quality switches, routers, and network
cards. Without a healthy network, Enerdeq performance will suffer regardless
of the quality of your PC or Server hardware.

Using the Map
Use the map to view your area of interest. Display the layers of interest and navigate using the
zoom and pan tools. The Inspect bar at the bottom of the window displays information about
items from inspectable layers. Using Inspect mode (
DataCard.
), click an item on the map to display its
Select items on the map to use in Query Editor or in Output windows. There are several ways to
select items on the map for output to another window. Results from inspectable layers are
retrieved first by those you clicked while pressing CTRL or SHIFT, next by those you encircled
with a selection polygon, and finally by those within the current map extents.
Making layers visible
Visible layers are rendered on the map when the map scale is within a layer's visibility cutoffs.
Even if inspectability, which enables you to work with a layer's objects, is cleared the layer is
still rendered on the map. However, if visibility is cleared, inspectability is also cleared.
Wednesday, July 28, 2010
11
Check boxes appear at both the individual layer and the layer group levels in the Layer Legend.
Enable or disable visibility for an individual layer using that layer's check box, or do it for all the
layers beneath a group layer by selecting or clearing the check box for that group layer.
Following are the various states of visibility:
At the individual layer level, signifies a layer is visible. At the layer group level,
signifies all of the layers within a layer group are visible.
At the individual layer level, signifies a layer isn't visible. At the layer group level,
signifies all of the layers within a layer group aren't visible.
Only appears at the layer group level and signifies that some, but not all of the layers
within a layer group are visible.
Just because a layer is selected , it doesn't mean that layer is automatically visible on the map.
The map must also be zoomed to a scale at which the layer is set to appear. For example, if the
Wells layer is set to appear at a zoom scale of 1:250,000, even though its visibility checkbox may
be selected, it won't appear on the map if your zoom scale is greater than 1:250,000.
Items also won't be visible on the map unless a symbol, pattern, or fill is defined for those items.
For example, you may need to select the well layer in the Layer Legend and then click Layer >
Symbolize to define a well head symbol before wells appear on the map. You can determine
how the item will be rendered by viewing the symbol, pattern, or fill adjacent to the layer name
in the Symbolize column in the Layer Legend.
When you select the visibility check box, a layer also becomes inspectable. When you clear the
visibility check box, inspectability is also disabled.
Tip: The map refreshes more quickly with fewer layers displayed.
To change whether a layer is visible on the map
Do one of the following:
Select the check box next to a layer or a sub-layer name to make it visible on the map, and
then click Apply.
Clear the check box next to a layer or a sub-layer name to disable visibility, and then click
Apply.
Note: You must make a layer inspectable in order to select its objects or display them in
Output windows.

See "Positioning the Layer Legend," p. 14
Making layers inspectable
Layers with underlying data can be made inspectable so that information about their objects
appears in the Inspect bar below the map, so that clicking an item on a layer launches a
DataCard, and so that items selected in that layer appear in either an Output window or in Query
Editor. A layer can only be made inspectable when it's within its visible scale cutoffs.
Certain culture layers, such as environmental layers, have underlying data that can be inspected
and displayed in DataCards, but that can't be queried.
If made inspectable, a layer is also visible. When inspectability is disabled, the layer remains
visible so that it's still rendered on the map. Query results can be attached to the map as a layer
and inspected. For details, see Related topics below.
Following are the different states of inspectability:
At the individual layer level, signifies that a layer is inspectable. At the layer group
level, signifies that all of the layers within that layer group are inspectable.
At the layer group level, signifies that only some of the layers within that layer group
are inspectable.
At the individual layer level, signifies that layer isn't inspectable. At the layer group
level, signifies that none of the layers within that layer group are inspectable.
A simple black outline indicates the layer or layer group is currently outside its visible
scale cutoffs.
To change whether a layer is inspectable
With the map zoomed in enough that the inspectability symbol for the layer to make
inspectable appears with a blue outline
instead of a black outline , click inspectability
to the right of a layer name or a layer group name so that it appears as a filled blue circle .

Printing maps
Once you've set your print page options, you can print the map to a plotter or printer. Enerdeq
doesn't support tiled printing, in which a large map is automatically tiled across multiple pages.
If you need to used tiled printing, using the Map window zoom into a portion of the overall map
that will fill an 8.5 x 11" page and print it, then zoom into the next area to fill the next page and
print it, and so on.
Printing large scale maps
Printing 600 DPI requires a lot of memory. The following steps are recommended to optimize
printing large scale maps:
Restart your computer.
Keep other applications aside from Enerdeq Desktop closed, and for Enerdeq, display only
the Map window that contains the map to print. Keep all other Enerdeq windows closed.
Depending on your operating system, increase the allocated virtual memory size as follows:
32-bit - 4096 MB
64-bit - 8 GB
Reduce the complexity of maps by clearing transparency or by turning off layers you don't
need to print.
To print the map
1. Using the Map window, from the File menu, click Print .

single label with information from different labels appearing on separate lines. Where
different fonts are selected for different labels, the font selected in the last label you post is
applied to all of the labels.
Note: Information in the label isn't connected to the underlying relational database
from which it's originally drawn, so data won't remain synchronized with the
underlying relational data when you update your data or if you switch the current
measurement system between Imperial and metric.

Querying
Like the Map window, Query Editor is your starting point when working in an area. Query
Editor enables you to select data types (field, gas plant, pipeline, well, etc.), and then query
attributes for those data types.
Multiple data types can be queried with a single query and all the results displayed in one Map
window or Output Window.
Query results can be saved as a file that contains both the query criteria and the IDs of matching
items, or displayed in an Output window or Map window.
After reviewing or modifying the results in a Map or Output window, you can push them back
into Query Editor to add additional attributes and criteria with which to query.
Wednesday, July 28, 2010
55
Query results saved to disk can be opened in Query Editor or in any Output window, but can't be
opened in the Map window, which requires additional information that Query Editor doesn't
save.
Building queries
Query Editor can be launched from numerous windows in Enerdeq by pressing
.
When you launch Query Editor from another window, it's populated with the data type and
individual data items selected in that window. For example, if you launch Query Editor from a
Browse window in which you've selected several wells, the identifiers for those wells appear in
the Query Editor Current Criteria pane, and the matching data type and attributes are selected in
the Query Data Type and in the Well Attributes panes.
You can add additional data types and attributes to this query to further refine your search.
To build a query
1. Depending on the location from which to launch Query Editor, do one of the following:
Main Application toolbar, from the File menu point to New, and then click Query .
Map window, with the data to query either visible or selected (either by clicking or using a
polygon), from the Tools menu, click Query .
Output window (Browse, DataCard, Graph, Export, Log viewer, or DST viewer), select the
data groups and specific data items in Results Navigator to add to the query, and then from
the Tools menu, click Query .
If you're already using Query Editor and want to open a second instance, select the data
groups and specific attributes in the Results pane to add to the new query, and then from the
File menu, click New .
2. In the Query Data drop-down list, select the type of data to query (field, gas plant, pipeline,
well, etc).
Tip: You can build a single query that searches multiple data types by defining attributes for
each data type one at a time.
The attribute list on the left side of the Query Editor window updates based on the data type
selected above.
3. To locate attributes to add to your query, either double-click the parent name, click , or type
the desired attribute name in the Find box, and then either click Find or press ENTER. Click
Find or press ENTER repeatedly to scroll through similar attribute names.
56
Wednesday, July 28, 2010
The features in the criteria selector pane right of the attribute selector list update to correspond
to the attribute selected above. For example, if you select an attribute that uses a date field,
date selection controls appear in the criteria selector pane as depicted in the adjacent graphic.
4. Type or select the desired criteria, and then click Add to attach your criteria selection to the
current query with an "And" logical operator.
If you're modifying existing criteria, Apply appears instead of Add and when you click it, the
modified criteria replace the original criteria.
Tip: Depending on the attribute selected above, you may be able to type either "?" as a singlecharacter wildcard or "*" as a multiple-character wildcard. When an attribute supports wildcards,
instructions for using them appear in the Criteria Selector pane. Click wildcard examples for
basic query examples. Some attributes that don't accept wildcards provide "Starts with" and
"Contains" options instead. If your search string is "ABC", "Starts with" is equal to "ABC*"
while "Contains" is equal to "*ABC*," where * is one or more alphanumeric characters.
To add additional criteria with an "And" logical operator so that your query returns only
results that match both statements, repeat steps 3 and 4 above.
To add additional criteria with an "Or" logical operator so that your query returns any results
that match either statement, select an existing criteria string in the Current Criteria pane, type
different criteria in the Criteria Selector pane, and then click Append.
To change the current criteria, select the statement in the Current Criteria pane and click
Edit . Type your changes in the Criteria Selector pane, and then click Apply.
Wednesday, July 28, 2010
57
To remove a statement from the Current Criteria pane, select it and then click Clear
.
5. Click Get Count to determine the number of items each data type you've selected in the
Results pane will retrieve (CTRL+CLICK or SHIFT+CLICK for multiple selection).
This enables you to quickly determine the volume of results and modify your query string
before actually running it.
6. Either display the query results in a Map or Output window, or save them as a single file. For
details, see Related Topics below.

See "Saving queries to disk," p. 60
Viewing query results
Query results are displayed in the Map window or in an Output window. When you select either
the Map window or an Output window, your query is run and the results are automatically
pushed into the Map window or Output window you selected.
You can pass results between different Map, Query Editor, and Output windows modifying them
as you go. For example, you might query wells producing from a specific field, view those
results in a Browse window to sort and then select certain wells of interest, and then push only
those wells back into Query Editor to add additional query criteria. You could then push this
information into a DataCard or the Map window for detailed viewing.
To view query results
Tip: Before viewing the actual data from your query, click the Get Count button to see how
many hits the query will return and modify your query based on the volume of hits.

Saving queries to disk
When you save a query to disk from Query Editor or from an Output window, both the query
criteria and the IDs of matching results are saved in a single file. When you open that query in
Query Editor or an Output window, Enerdeq polls the current database using the saved query
criteria, so you're always working with the latest information. If you want to use historic data
instead of rerunning the query, using Query Editor attach the saved query file as a list instead.
For details, see Related topics below.
Type a query description to provide more detail than a file name allows, and then view this
description to refresh your memory the next time you open the query using Query Editor.
Save queries to disk in other formats including Excel, ESRI Shapefile, PETRA, PEEP, Value
Navigator,and more using the Export window. For details, see Related topics below.
To type a query description
1. Using Query Editor, from the File menu, click Properties.
The Query Properties dialog box appears.
2. Click to place your cursor in the Description pane, type details that distinguish this query from
others, and then click OK.
Tip: The dialog box in which you type descriptions also enables you to press CTRL+C to copy
highlighted text or CTRL+V to paste it.
To save queries to disk
1. From the File menu, click Save , or click Save As if you've modified a query that's already
saved to disk and want to save it with a different name.
60
Wednesday, July 28, 2010
If you have multiple Query Editors open and click Save, only the criteria and results for the
Query Editor that's currently in focus are saved.
2. Browse to the desired location, type a file name, and then click OK.

See "Opening saved queries," p. 61
See "Querying using a list," p. 65
Opening saved queries
Open query files saved to disk using either Query Editor or an Output window.
For query files opened in Query Editor, aside from making it easier to re-run periodic queries
without rebuilding them and being able to share query files with other Enerdeq users, you can
tweak queries by adding data types and attributes as your knowledge of an area and its
underlying data evolves. You can also build generic queries that you use as templates.
To ensure you're working with the latest information, Enerdeq polls the database by applying the
query criteria to the IDs of data items saved in the query file each time you open the saved query
file. If you want to use historic data instead of rerunning the query, using Query Editor, attach a
saved query file as a list. For details, see Related topics below.
To open saved queries
1. Using Query Editor or an Output window, from the File menu, click Open .
If you're opening a query file from the IHS Enerdeq Desktop toolbar, from the File menu,
point to Open, and then click Query Editor, or an Output window.
2. Browse to and select the desired query file, and then click Open.
The query criteria poll the Enerdeq database and, if launching the file in an Output window,
the latest data appear. If launching the file in Query Editor, the query criteria appear in the
Current Criteria pane and the applicable data type and attribute are selected.
Tip: If you typed a detailed query description when saving the query, you can review it to
refresh your memory by clicking File and then Properties.

Grouping and sorting in data panes
Sort any column by ascending or descending values or letters. Beyond sorting an individual
column, you can also sort multiple hierarchical columns so that the first column establishes the
grouping criteria for the entire display pane, the second establishes a sub-group within the first
group, and so on. For example, you could first group all rows by field name, then group each
well that shares the same field by producing zone, and then group all wells that share the same
producing zone by status.
To sort items by a column
Click the column header to toggle between ascending and descending order. The triangle in
the column header displays the current sort order (from largest/most recent to smallest/least
recent , or from smallest/least recent to largest/most recent ).
Tip: To sort by more than one column, hold the SHIFT key while clicking column headers.
To sort using the Group By Box
1. Right-click any column header and from the shortcut menu click Group By Box to open a
pane above the display panel into which you drag the column headers to sort.
In the Group By Box pane, hierarchy runs from left to right
where the left-most column becomes the parent and sorts
all rows in the entire Browse list. The column right of it
becomes its child and sorts the individual rows within each
parent.
If you drag a third column into the Group By Box, it
becomes a child of the child to its left and so on. You can
change the hierarchy of any column within the Group By
Box pane by dragging that column either left or right of
another column.

Browsing lists
The Browse window displays multiple data items in a standard spreadsheet view that enables you
to sift through large volumes of data by grouping, filtering, and sorting results. It includes some
of the same navigational functionality as Microsoft Excel and an easy-to-use Group By Box pane
into which you drag and order columns to sort in hierarchical sequence.
Once you've reviewed and sorted the results, you can select some to display in either the Map
window or an Output window, query them further using Query Editor, save them to disk, or
export them to other applications.
Navigating Browse lists
Navigate Browse lists using Data Navigator, which is displayed left of the Browse list when you

Sorting Browse list columns
Sort any column by ascending or descending values or letters. Beyond sorting an individual
column, you can also sort multiple hierarchical columns so that the first column establishes the
grouping criteria for the entire display pane, the second establishes a sub-group within the first
group, and so on. For example, you could first group all rows by field name, then group each
well that shares the same field by producing zone, and then group all wells that share the same
producing zone by status.
There are two ways to sort hierarchical column values, one that limits you to sorting only six
hierarchical columns, and another that enables you to sort an unlimited number of columns.
To sort using the Group By Box
1. Right-click the column header by which to sort, and from the shortcut menu, click Group by
this Field
OR
Right-click any column header and select Group By Box to open a pane above the display
pane into which you drag the column headers to sort.
In the Group By Box pane, hierarchy runs from left to right
where the left-most column becomes the parent and sorts all
rows in the entire Browse list. The column right of it becomes
its child and sorts the individual rows within each parent. If you
drag a third column into the Group By Box, it becomes a child
of the child to its left and so on. You can change the hierarchy
of any column within the Group By Box pane by dragging that
column either left or right of another column.
2. Click the column header in either the Group By Box pane or in the Browse list to toggle
between ascending and descending order. The triangle in the column header displays the
current sort order (from largest/most recent to smallest/least recent , or from smallest/least
recent to largest/most recent ).
84
Wednesday, July 28, 2010
Tip: You can instead establish hierarchy by pressing SHIFT while clicking the column headers
in the Browse list in the order in which to sort them. To sort just a single column in ascending or
descending order, just click without pressing SHIFT.
3. To remove hierarchical sorting, do either of the following:
To remove grouping from all columns, right-click an area of the Group By Box pane where
there isn't a column header and from the shortcut menu, click Clear Grouping.
To remove grouping from individual columns, right-click the column in either the Group By
Box pane or in the display pane and from the shortcut menu, click Ungroup.
To sort up to six columns
1. From the Browse menu, click Sort
.
The Sort Browse List dialog box appears.
2. In the Sort By and Then By drop-down lists, select the columns by which to sort in the desired
order of hierarchy.
3. For each of the options, click either the Ascending or Descending options, and then click OK.
4. To remove hierarchical sorting, select None in the Sort By or Then by drop-down lists. All
drop-down lists below and including the one in which you selected None become inactive.

Showing and hiding Browse list columns
Select a template with pre-defined columns to apply to the display pane as is, or modify which
columns appear and their order to create a unique user template. You can create an unlimited
number of user templates for each data type. Templates appear in the Template drop-down list
sorted alphabetically with pre-defined templates in black text and user-defined templates in blue
text.
The pre-defined templates from which you can select depend on the data types selected in Data
Navigator (CTRL+CLICK or SHIFT+CLICK to select multiple data types in Data Navigator).
The user templates from which you can select depend on both the data types selected in Results
Navigator and the data type that was selected when you originally created the user template.
Instead of customizing templates, you can show and hide columns that appear in the display
pane, but unlike user templates, these changes will be lost when you end the current session.
To create user templates
1. Select a data type in Data Navigator with which the user template you create will be
associated, then beside the Template drop-down list, click Edit.
The Template Editor dialog box appears.
86
Wednesday, July 28, 2010
2. Select the name of the template to modify in the Template drop-down list.
The first data item that appears in the Template Attributes pane is the left-most column in the
Browse list and the last item is the right-most column.
3. Do any of the following:
To add data items as columns to a user template, in the Template Attributes pane on the
right, select the data item (column) before which to insert a new data item and then in the
Available Attributes pane on the left, select the data item to add and click .
Note: To limit data redundancy, Enerdeq may prevent multiple columns with one-tomany relationships from occupying the same row. When such a relationship is
prevented, the Template Attributes pane refreshes and previously expanded branches
collapse.
When you add a data item to the Template Attributes pane, it remains in the Available
Attributes pane too. You can add it to the Template Attributes pane in multiple
locations so that it recurs at strategic intervals in the Browse list.
The dotted line near the top of the Template Attributes pane separates any data items
above it as fixed columns in the Browse list. Data items below it remain part of the
horizontal scrolling portion of the Browse list.
To remove data items from the current template, in the Template Attributes pane to the
right, select a data item to remove (CTRL+CLICK or SHIFT+CLICK for multiple
selection) and then click Remove Attribute.
To remove all the data items, click Clear All.
To change the left-to-right order in which one or more columns appear in the Browse list,
select the data items in the Template Attributes pane (SHIFT+CLICK or CTRL+CLICK
for multiple selection) and click or . To move just one data item, simply drag it up or
down to the desired location.

Viewing Well Docs
View well documents saved in either Adobe PDF or TIFF format. Depending on whether the
native format of the well doc you load is TIFF or PDF, WellDocs viewer launches either an
Adobe viewer component or a TIFF viewer component in the bottom right pane where the well
docs are displayed. The native format of the well doc also controls whether you can save the
document in PDF, image, or pressure ASCII standard (PAS) format.
The type and volume of reports differ by region and well. Some regions may have up to 15
different reports, while others may only have a maximum of 5. Some reports also include subreports that you can select using the Type drop-down list described in the popups below.

Exporting spatial data in Google Earth or shapefile
format
Export the spatial data in ESRI shapefile™ or Google Earth™ format using either a map that's
currently displayed in the Map window, or an Enerdeq map that's saved to disk. For maps saved
to disk, the exported data is based on the map extents. For maps that are currently displayed in a
Map window, you can further limit the data to export by drawing a polygon in the Map window,
and then export only the data within that polygon.
Files required for shapefiles are saved in a compressed folder. Google Earth exports result in a
single .kmz file.
Spatial data is exported in NAD 27 format.
To export spatial data in Google Earth or shapefile format
1. Using either the Map window (to base the export on an open map), or Query Editor or an
Output window (to base the export on a map that's saved to disk), from the Tools menu, click
Export .

Tip: For saved maps, and instead of drawing a polygon on an open map, you can reduce the
current export extents by specifying the lat long of the desired extents in the Coordinates area,
providing the lat long you specify fall within the overall extents of the selected map.
All licensed spatial layers appear in Data Navigator with the currently displayed layers in
either the open or saved map selected for export.
Select additional spatial layers to export using Data Navigator even if they're not active on
the current or saved map.
