Units

Field Activity Planner comes with a set of pre-defined unit settings namely Metric, Field, and SI units.

Field units are primarily used by petroleum engineers, and Metric and SI are the same and are used internationally across the industry.

Units for projects

You select which one to use for your project in Default Unit System under Project Settings.

Request new unit types

There might be a need for you to include a new set of units for e.g. your metadata definitions or because of requirements for custom integrations etc. If so, we suggest that you contact support@fieldap.com, and explain your requirements and the use case so it can be considered for inclusion in a maintenance release. Note! Please include a sample unit description example as outlined below.

Unit Description Example

A Unit definition can :

  • Have a category
  • Have multiple units
  • Set has default for the category
  • Must have default for each unit system we support ( Metric, Field, SI ).

As an example:

<NumericalType Name="Gas Liquid Ratio" Category="Ratio" InternalUnit="STD_m3/m3" IsDefault="True">
    <Unit A="0.178108" B="1" C="0">SCF/STB</Unit>
  <Unit A="0.178108" B="1" C="0">SCF/bbl</Unit>
    <Unit A="" B="" C="">sm3/sm3</Unit>
    <Unit A="1" B="1" C="0">sm3/m3</Unit>
</NumericalType>  
<NumericalType Name="Gas Oil Ratio" Category="Ratio" InternalUnit="STD_m3/m3" IsDefault="True">
    <Unit A="0.178108" B="1" C="0">SCF/STB</Unit>
  <Unit A="0.178108" B="1" C="0">SCF/bbl</Unit>
    <Unit A="" B="" C="">sm3/sm3</Unit>
    <Unit A="1" B="1" C="0">sm3/m3</Unit>   
</NumericalType>

and:

"Gas Liquid Ratio": 
{
  "Metric": "sm3/sm3",
  "Field": "SCF/STB",
  "SI": "sm3/sm3"
},
"Gas Oil Ratio": 
{
  "Metric": "sm3/sm3",
  "Field": "SCF/STB",
  "SI": "sm3/sm3"
}

A, B, C values are not uses for now, but can be useful to define different constants of an equation to translate from one "InternalUnit" to the Unit defined.
