# What's new

# Version 1.11 - November 15, 2021

Shift between assets

Select the asset you want to work with using the new dialog box that appears when you sign in to BestDay. The asset dropdown list shows all the assets you have access to.

Asset selector

When you want to work with a different asset, click the asset name under the BestDay logo in the top left and select another asset from the list.

View daily and hourly rates

To give you even more details about the data displayed in BestDay, we've added time rates on all measurement units across the different BestDay views. You can select to show daily or hourly rates with the new Preferred rate field on the Profile page. We've also made sure BestDay keeps this setting and all other settings on this page if you use BestDay on different browsers and computers.

Preferred rate

Add collection

Group favorite wells into Collections

We've expanded and enhanced how your favorite wells are grouped with the new Collections option. Instead of having a list of favorites, you can now group wells into one or several collections. This is how to create a collection:

  1. Click Collections in the System selector to open the Add new collection window.

  2. Give a unique and descriptive name of the collection.

  3. Add the well you want to have as favorites.

  4. Click Create new collection.

Keep your user preferences

When you open BestDay, you'll notice that you'll find the application just as you left it! BestDay now keeps all settings and filters you have added to the different views, such as open or closed sidebars, time range, and production settings.

# Version 1.10 - November 2, 2021

In this release of BestDay, we've made sure the preferred settings you have selected on the Profile page are kept even when you're using BestDay across different browsers and computers.

Profile page

Notice also how the breadcrumb path at the top of each page, which helps you keep track of your location, now automatically adjusts to the size of the screen you're working on.

# Version 1.9 - October 1, 2021

This version of BestDay is all about making it easier for you to navigate and find the data you are looking for. The BestDay views, KPI dashboard, Deep dive, and Well summary are relocated and displayed as tabs closer to the working canvas enabling swift navigation between these. Notice also that you can close the System selector pane by clicking the X icon, and the Export button is now easy to spot in the top bar.

New tabs

# Version 1.8 - September 21, 2021

When you want to further explore and analyze trends from BestDay, you can now easily copy the external ID for a production trend and use this to find the same trend/time series in Cognite Data Fusion or Cognite Charts. Simply click the drop-down for a product on the Deep Dive page and click the copy icon.

Find External ID

This version also includes some minor tweaks made to the overall user interface, and we've taken care of some minor issues.

# Version 1.7 - June 21, 2021

Production rate frequency

BestDay keeps expanding the trend options, and for well deep-dives, you can now trend a set of production rates, for instance, from different measuring points or a combination of live measurements and allocated production. The most frequent measurement is used for BestDay capacity calculation and deviation detection.

We've also grouped all trends for a product on the deep-dive pages. You use the dropdown lists to select the trends you want to visualize. Notice that a product’s production and target rates are represented by one shared Y-axis, making comparison very easy. You'll also find that systems and subsystems deep-dives now have a separate Y-axis per product.

Shared Y-axis

# Version 1.6 - June 10, 2021

This version of BestDay focuses on giving you a bird's eye overview of production performance and some new options to find areas that need further investigation and understanding quickly and easy.

KPI Dashboard

When you open BestDay, you are now directed to the new KPI Dashboard page. Here you'll see all your key performance indicators for your selected system level. Below, you'll find different panels where you can investigate the details.

These are the main KPI cards:

  • Gross production shows the production of all liquids, including water and impurities.

  • Hydrocarbon shows the sum of all hydrocarbon production.

  • Deferments show deferment volume per day.

  • Deviations show deviation volume per day and number of deviations. You can choose between seeing total sums or the daily averages for a set time range.

Main KPI cards

KPI panels

The Breakdown by product panel shows values for actual production, the BestDay capacity estimation and other capacity references, deferments, and deviations. Showing all products is the default setting, but you can select products with the checkboxes at the top of the panel.

KPI Breakdown per product

Next is the Production bar chart, which visualizes actual production. You can compare the production capacity to the BestDay data-driven capacity and other capacity references, such as IPSC. You can also select to see the deviations between the actual and estimated production. This is illustrated with a grey shaded area on the chart. Show or hide a box with daily details with Show values on hover.

KPI Production

Scroll further to see the Deviations and Deferments volume lined up side by side. A gap between the two indicates a reason for investigating the optimization potential. Click Split by status count to display the amount of detected and ignored deviations and planned and unplanned deferments. Notice that both the Deviation and Deferments side panels are available on the right side of the page to give you easy access to more details, such as event distributions.

KPI Deferments and Deviations

The last panel displays Production efficiency per product. The efficiency calculation is (Actual production/Capacity)x100%. By default, the BestDay data-driven capacity is used. You can change this with the dropdown list per product located at the top of the panel.

Deep dive

Link to Cognite Charts

When you want to dive into the nitty-gritty details, use the new link to Cognite Charts (opens new window), where you can further explore, trend, troubleshoot, and perform root cause analysis of data and deviations and also share the findings with your co-workers.

You'll find the link to Cognite Charts right above the graphs per Deep dive page.

Well summary

Broaden your understanding and prioritize between wells on the Well summary page with a new aggregated view of the summary. This is now available for the entire field/branch/country, per system and subsystem. Then filter further by sorting on the new Production efficiency column to find the area with the highest optimization potential. You can use new advanced options under the Production deviations column for further filtering; for instance, only show ongoing detected deviations with a volume above 10%.

Well summary

Note also that all trends for a product are now grouped in the well chart view. Use the dropdown lists to select the trends you want to visualize.

Well productes grouped

Network tree

Get the overview of the production flow from a selected well to the export point with the Network tree that you find as a side panel when you have selected a well. Traverse up and down the network, view network nodes such as gathering points or measuring points, or jump over to other wells and facilities.

Network tree

# Version 1.5 - May 20, 2021

Sorting deferments

We've added a wide range of options for sorting and filtering deferments and deviations. On the Derferments and Deviations side panels, just click the Sort list to sort according to newest or oldest item, largest and lowest volume, or longest and shortest duration. Click Filter on deviations to filter by status, duration, or volume, and click Filter on deferments to filter by type, event, duration, volume, or choke.

We've also added a histogram for all deferment and deviation events to visualize event distribution. Deferment events are categorized as event type, choke, volume, and duration. Deviation events are categorized as status, volume, and duration. Note that the volume ranges are sorted according to less than 5% of BestDay capacity, 5-10% of BestDay capacity, and more than 10% of BestDay capacity.

# Version 1.4 - April 20, 2021

Find your favorite wells and add them to the Watched Wells collection for easy access from anywhere. Simply click the star icon next to a well on the Well Summary page or on the well path list on the Deep Dive page to add to the collection.

# Version 1.3.2 - April 12, 2021

The Export option in BestDay keeps improving! If you have changed the measurement units for production and deferment data according to your preferences, these units are now included in the exported spreadsheet.


You set your preferred measurement units on the Profile page.

# Version 1.3.1 - March 25, 2021

You'll experience a variety of minor improvements made across several areas in this version of BestDay. Here's a selection - special characters are displayed correctly in Excel after export from BestDay, charts load faster when you switch between wells, and you will find that y-axes with the same unit are aligned automatically on the Well Deep dive page to make it easier to compare values directly.

# Version 1.3 - March 19, 2021

Check how easy you now can set your preferred measurement units for all hydrocarbon liquid and hydrocarbon gas values throughout BestDay on the refurbished Profile page. Instead of going through the whole list of units per product, set the measurement units with two simple steps.
