8.1.1 Snapshot Use Case

Topic Version1Published11/11/2016
For StandardWITSML v2.0

The snapshot use case refers to exchanging data that represents the well completion at a given instant in time. Everything in the data transfer represents equipment in the completion at the instant specified by the user. Conceptually, a snapshot corresponds to a completion diagram (Figure 8.1.1-1). However, a snapshot does NOT include any information about how components were installed or any service-related information.

Figure 8.1.1-1 The snapshot use case is effectively the same as a completion diagram.

Note that the snapshot can include flow paths of fluids through the whole completion, modeled in a limited sense. The connections to the reservoir are modeled, and these are associated with ports (or flows) at the wellhead. However, the detailed path in between is not explicitly described.
