  1. 1. ©2010 Seismic Micro-Technology, Inc. / www.seismicmicro.com KINGDOM Software Release Notes for Version 8.5 Service Pack 2 September 30, 2010 The KINGDOM™ Software and all of its components – 2dPAK®, 3dPAK®, 2d/3dPAK®, EarthPAK®, LoadPAK®, DirectPLOT®, VuPAK®, SynPAK®, TracePAK®, ModPAK®, AVOPAK®, PAKnotes®, CGMPAK®, LogPAK®, and VelPAK® - are registered trademarks of Seismic Micro-Technology, Inc. (SMT), The KINGDOM Company™. KINGDOM Data Management™, KINGDOM DM Catalog Builder™, KINGDOM 1D Forward Modeling®, KINGDOM Illuminator™, KINGDOM Seeker™, KINGDOM GeoModeling™, and KINGDOM Colored Inversion™ are trademarks of Seismic Micro-Technology, Inc. (SMT), The KINGDOM Company™. General Installing KINGDOM 8.5 SP2 • KINGDOM 8.5 SP2 utilizes the latest Microsoft technology and requires Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0 and other system components. These components will be automatically installed during the KINGDOM installation if not already installed. For this reason, your current version of KINGDOM 8.5 must be completely uninstalled before installing version 8.5 SP2. The KINGDOM installer will automatically uninstall for you and then will proceed with the installation of 8.5 SP2 and required components. • Microsoft SQL Server Express is now automatically installed with KINGDOM unless it is unchecked during installation Notes • Always back up each project before opening it in a new release. • KINGDOM 8.5 is available in 32-bit and 64-bit versions: o The 32-bit version will hereafter be referred to as “The KINGDOM Software 32-bit” or “KINGDOM-32." o The 64-bit version will hereafter be referred to as “The KINGDOM Software 64-bit” or “KINGDOM-64." • KINGDOM-64 requires the use of a SQL Server Express, SQL Server, or Oracle database. For more details see the SMT Planning Guide available on the View Resources tab of the Installation Manager. The Planning Guide is also included as a section in the Installation Guide. • KINGDOM-32 and KINGDOM-64 can run standalone on a 64-bit system running Windows XP Professional, Windows Vista, and Windows 7 with a USB sentinel plug. Parallel port sentinel plugs are not supported on this platform. Contact your marketing representative at 713-464-6188 or sales@seismicmicro.com if you need a USB plug. Software Download Capability • SMT offers an electronic download capability to obtain this new release via the Internet. Log in to your My Account. Once logged in, click on Downloads and select Latest Release. This will take you to the release page where you can either download the software or select to have a DVD shipped. If you choose get a DVD, SMT will ship to the address that we have in our Customer KINGDOM Software Release Notes for Version 8.5 SP2 September 2010 p. 1

If you do not have a My Account or cannot locate your My Account login information please contact your local SMT support team to obtain a login. Compatibility • KINGDOM 8.5 SP2 will not install on: o Windows XP unless Service Pack 2 or later has been installed. o Windows 2000. • Users may see error 19 while applying Web Feature Keys when running KINGDOM for the first time with a standalone license on Vista. This can happen when Vista's User Account Control (UAC) is turned on. The default for UAC is enabled. The workaround is to use the right mouse button menu option "Run As Administrator" when starting KINGDOM the first time. • SQL Server Users please note: KINGDOM GeoModeling requires SQL Server 2005 SP3 or SQL Server Express 2005 SP3 Oracle Users • KINGDOM is certified on Oracle versions 8.x through 10g. • KINGDOM versions 8.5 and later requires Oracle users to have CREATE VIEW System Privileges. Your Oracle DBA may need to add this privilege for each Oracle user before you can open or create KINGDOM projects. • Some versions of Oracle do not work with applications installed in directories that contain parentheses. If you are using Oracle as your KINGDOM project database and you are installing KINGDOM 32-bit on a 64-bit operating system, you will need to do one of the following: o Install KINGDOM in a folder without parentheses. (e.g. C:KingdomSuite). o Install a version of Oracle that does work with parentheses or install patch 5059238 for Oracle client 10.2. Oracle and SQL Server users • The 8.5 SP2 version of KINGDOM requires that tables be added to the data model. When a project is opened for the first time with 8.5 SP2, the Oracle or SQL Server user must have create table system privileges in order to successfully upgrade the project with the new tables. • If your Oracle or SQL Server user can create projects, then you have create table permissions. If your user profile does not have the required permissions, you will get an Insufficient Privileges error message when opening the project. Contact your database administrator to modify the user profile. SQL Server Express Users • If you install and run SQL Server Express on the same machine as KINGDOM, we recommend Windows XP Professional x64 Edition SP2, Windows Vista 64 SP1, or Windows 7 on a workstation with a minimum of 4 GB of physical memory. Also note that performance can be substantially improved for large projects by adding additional RAM. • KINGDOM 8.0 and prior cannot open SQL Server Express projects. After a project is converted to SQL Server Express, only KINGDOM 8.1 and later can open the project. KINGDOM Software Release Notes for Version 8.5 SP2 September 2010 p. 2
  3. 3. ©2010 Seismic Micro-Technology, Inc. / www.seismicmicro.com Access to SQL Server Express Migration in a Multi-user Environment • If multiple users are going to access the SQL Server Express projects, you should install SQL Server Express on a network accessible machine. You cannot specify to install SQL Server Express on a different machine than the one you are logged into. Determine the machine to house SQL Server Express, and install the application from that machine with the SMT Installation Manager on the KINGDOM Software DVD or from the downloaded installer. Using SQL Server Express Management Tools in a Networked Environment • If you have installed SQL Server Express on a networked server, you must run the SQL Server Express Management Tools from that server in order to make projects portable or reattach portable projects. Performance Considerations • KINGDOM-32 on a Windows x64 Edition can access 3GB of physical RAM, which significantly improves performance for large projects. KINGDOM-64 can access 128 GB of physical space and 8 terabytes of address space. • Application of any XP theme can cause serious performance problems. If you are using the XP “look and feel,” please review the Microsoft discussion at http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=319740#kb4. • Follow these steps to adjust the Windows settings for best performance: 1. Exit all running applications. 2. Right-click on the My Computer icon. 3. Select Properties from the menu. 4. Click the Advanced tab. 5. Click the first Settings button in the Performance box. 6. Click the Adjust for Best Performance radio button. 7. Click OK in both open dialog boxes. • Users can view memory usage and availability by using the hot key combination Alt+Ctrl+M when KINGDOM is running and has the active focus. NOTE: If you have Windows Live Search installed, the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+Alt+M may bring up the Windows Live Search Tool instead of the KINGDOM memory dialog box. Windows 7   KINGDOM 8.5 has passed testing on Windows 7 with no known outstanding issues. As with any new operating system there are a multitude of configurations with respect to security settings, up-to-date device drivers and mix of loaded software applications. If you should experience issues as always please contact your local SMT support team for assistance. Windows 7 and BMC’s AppSight Black Box   When KINGDOM 8.5 was released, AppSight version 7.5 did not support Windows 7. If you are running KINGDOM on a Windows 7 system, SMT will not install AppSight when KINGDOM 8.5 SP2 is installed. BMC, the AppSight vendor, has released AppSight 7.5.02 which is compatible with Windows 7 systems. KINGDOM Software Release Notes for Version 8.5 SP2 September 2010 p. 3
  4. 4. ©2010 Seismic Micro-Technology, Inc. / www.seismicmicro.com If AppSight is needed to troubleshoot a KINGDOM issue, SMT Technical Support will ask you to download and install AppSight from My Account.   SMT KINGDOM 8.5 Hardware Configuration Recommendations Guide   Note: The document below represents good faith estimates by SMT on customer hardware needs. Every customer environment is different and evolving. We strongly recommend that customers work with their IT departments and SMT consulting services to define their actual hardware needs. The information below is purely a guideline and not meant to be authoritative. SMT currently recommends the following basic configurations: • Operating System: Windows XP Professional x64 SP2, Windows Vista x64 SP1, or Windows 7. (The OS must be specified because many vendors ship new workstations with Vista x32 as the default OS). • KINGDOM Software 64-bit version When buying a new 64-bit workstation with a 64-bit OS, please determine your minimum configuration based on the following:   Project Size KINGDOM x64 Version KINGDOM x32 Version Large Regional Projects 16 GB RAM Not Recommended Quad Core CPU Large Projects 8 GB RAM 4 GB RAM Quad Core CPU Two Dual Core CPUs Small Projects 4 GB RAM 4 GB RAM One Dual Core CPU One Dual Core CPU   On a 64-bit workstation with a 64-bit OS running KINGDOM x64 Version, KINGDOM can potentially access up to 128 GBs of RAM and 8 TBs of virtual memory, depending on the amount of RAM on the workstation. On a 64-bit workstation with a 64-bit OS running KINGDOM x32 Version, KINGDOM can potentially access up to 3 GBs of RAM, depending on the amount of RAM on the workstation. This significantly increases the amount of accessible RAM using a 32-bit OS.   How do I determine which hardware configuration is needed? Recommended Disk Drives For KINGDOM projects stored on the local workstation or on a network file server, KINGDOM currently recommends the following: • Project data is stored on the local workstation: 15,000 RPM SAS drives are recommended for the workstation. • Project data is stored on a file server: 7,200 RPM SAS drives are sufficient for the local workstation. KINGDOM Software Release Notes for Version 8.5 SP2 September 2010 p. 4
  5. 5. ©2010 Seismic Micro-Technology, Inc. / www.seismicmicro.com Recommended RAM The following chart has formulas for estimating RAM required for a given project. The sample project used for this example is a Large Regional Project. However, you can use the formulas to determine your hardware requirements for any project. Sample Large Regional Formula Project Data Object Description MBs of RAM Required Example MB Total (In Lines * CrossLines * 4) / (9300 *11400 * 4) / Time Slice Display 424.08 1,000,000 1,000,000 = Horizon Display 50 MBs is total RAM used 1 or many horizons = 50.00 GRID Display (Number of cells *4) / 1,000,000 (100,000,000 cells) * 4 = 400.00 ((File size of 16.645MB) * Contour Display 4.5 * (contour files size) 74.90 4.5) = Vertical (9300 * 3246 * 4) / Display traces * samples * 4 120.75 Seismic View 1,000,000 = load into (1,000,000 Surface Picks) * Surface Picks .0016 MB each 1600.00 memory .0016 = load into Well data 0.00643 each (357,607 wells) * .00643 = 2299.41 memory Sum 4969.15 4.9 Data Object Computation RAM Required Example MB Total ((Number Cells ) * 4 + 4 * 100,000,000 * 4 + Grid Gridding (number of input points)) / (4 * 103,020,000)) / 812.08 1,000,000 1,000,000 = Contouring a ((4 * 2 * 10,000) + (4 * Horizon ((4 * 2 * 10,000) + (9300 * Contour 424.16 Horizon bins)) / 1,000,000 11,400*4)) / 1,000,000 = Contouring a ((4 * 2 * 10,000) + (4 *Grid cells)) ((4 * 2 * 10,000) + (9300 * Contour 424.16 Grid / 1,000,000 11,400 * 4)) / 1,000,000 = Max of the Above 0.8 Additional memory recommended MB Total Seismic (number of lines to cache) * 10 * ((9300 * 3246 * 4) / Ram Cache 1207.51 Caching traces * samples * 4 1,000,000) = Tiff Display sizes vary estimate 500.00 Shape files Display ~2 * sum of file sizes (*.shp file) estimate 200.00 Sum 1907.51 1.91 Memory Required 7.7GB KINGDOM Software Release Notes for Version 8.5 SP2 September 2010 p. 5
  6. 6. ©2010 Seismic Micro-Technology, Inc. / www.seismicmicro.com   Based on the above chart, the peak RAM requirements for this project would be 7.7GBs if the user only displayed one window. However, if the user displayed 2 grids, 5 vertical seismic views, 2 horizons and 2 time slices we would need an additional 800MBs + 600MBs + 848MBs bringing the peak RAM requirements to 9.9 GBs. The actual peak memory usage would be during the grid creation. Since the amount of RAM required for this project is over 8 GBs, it is considered a "Large Regional Project" and one should purchase hardware accordingly. It is important to remember, this is only an example scenario. Please contact your IT department and/or SMT consulting services to define hardware needs for your environment. Video Cards Please refer to Appendix B for Video Card Requirements. Development and testing for VuPAK was done utilizing Nvidia Quadro FX3700, FX3800, FX4600 & FX5200 Video Cards with 512MB and 768MB of memory. License Server for Network Users • KINGDOM 8.5 SP2 requires license server version Sentinel LM 8.0. This is the same version since the release of KINGDOM 8.0. Users of previous versions of the Sentinel LM license server must upgrade to Sentinel LM 8.0. The SMT License Server 8.0 installer will guide you through the upgrade process. • Sentinel LM 8.0 is backward compatible with older clients. That is, all applications currently running on Sentinel LM version 7.2.0.9 will operate normally. • If the network license server is running on a computer with the Windows Firewall option turned on, then the computers running the KINGDOM software may have a problem connecting to the license server. If this situation occurs, set the Windows Firewall option to OFF on the computer running the network license server or create an exception. Regional Settings The regional settings for Windows must be set to use a period instead of a comma for the decimal point. The default in many European countries is to use a comma. To change the regional settings, follow these steps: 1. Exit all running applications. 2. Click Start > Settings > Control Panel > Regional and Language Options. 3. Click Customize next to the regional setting. 4. If the Decimal symbol is a comma, then click the drop-down arrow beside Decimal symbol and select period. 5. Click OK and OK again on the original window. KINGDOM Software Release Notes for Version 8.5 SP2 September 2010 p. 6
  7. 7. ©2010 Seismic Micro-Technology, Inc. / www.seismicmicro.com Enhancements KINGDOM Auto SSE (Automatic SQL Server Express) • KINGDOM now offers a new SQL Server Express (SSE) option to make your projects more easily portable. The Auto SSE option moves the project database files into the project folder. KINGDOM then automatically attaches and detaches the database files when you open and close the project making your project automatically portable. You can move or copy the project without any tools or special operations. • When MS Access projects are opened in KINGDOM, you will be presented with the option to convert these projects to any available database that KINGDOM supports. You can select from Auto SSE (automatic portability) or Manual SSE (original implementation using a tool to make projects portable) in addition to SQL Server and Oracle. • If you had previously migrated projects to SSE, you will be prompted with the option to convert those projects from Manual SSE to Auto SSE at the time that they are opened. • Some initial system configuration may be required if you want to use the Auto SSE option in a networked environment and will be sharing these projects with other users. This configuration is described in detail in the on-line help under Help > The KINGDOM Software Help Topics > Database Administration > Microsoft SQL Server Express as the Project Database or by clicking the Connection Requirements link on the migrate message box. EarthPAK KINGDOM 8.5 SP2 debuts major new EarthPAK Advanced functionality for the geoscientist and engineer. Please note that due to limitations in Microsoft Access this new functionality is only available for SQL Express, SQL Server, and Oracle-based projects. Perform Sophisticated Volumetrics Analyses • Incorporate structure, isopach, and property grids. • Simultaneously analyze multiple layers, each with different properties. • Perform “what if” analysis on an individual layer by varying fluid types and contacts. • Analyze geological uncertainty through Monte Carlo and Sensitivity Analysis. Forecast Recoverable Reserves • Analyze multiple production profiles in multiple cross plots. • Forecast production into the future and tie with Volumetrics. • Generate composite forecasts using multiple segments. • Aggregate or normalize production data using group wells and perform analysis at the entity level. • Create forecast templates and run in batch mode. KINGDOM Software Release Notes for Version 8.5 SP2 September 2010 p. 7
  8. 8. ©2010 Seismic Micro-Technology, Inc. / www.seismicmicro.com Assess Economic Viability • Create scenarios for economic cases. • Input production, ownership, product pricing, OPEX and CAPEX to compute before and after tax cash flow. • Compare projects with various economic indicators. • Print or save cash flow summaries, and export full monthly cash flow table to Excel. Extensive documentation, including a glossary, is available in the online help. KINGDOM Colored Inversion KINGDOM Colored Inversion transforms seismic reflectivity data to relative acoustic impedance data. It enables interpreters to pick true changes in impedance that represent geology that matches well log data, not just picking horizons based on processing reflections. KINGDOM Colored Inversion requires a separate license. Known Issue with Colored Inversion: Under the ‘Apply to Volume’ tab, if ‘Invert Selected’ is pressed without selecting a volume an exception error message may be given. If it is, press ‘Continue’, select the volume you require, and then press ‘Invert Selected’ and the processing will proceed. [43574] Bug Fixes in this Update (Reference numbers in parentheses) The following problems have been fixed with this update. We recommend that the update be installed if you are experiencing one of the listed problems. Service Packs and Hot Fixes by nature do not have the full certification of releases; therefore we highly recommend that you back up your projects before updating KINGDOM. KINGDOM updates are inclusive. Any problems fixed with previous Service Packs and Hot Fixes are included in the current Service Pack or Hot Fix. KINGDOM • KINGDOM now automatically populates the Database login form with the named database instance in the <project>.xml file rather than relying on the Microsoft Master Browser list,. (328198) • Standalone sentinel plugs may now be easily moved between customer computers. (329110) • KINGDOM will now migrate projects from Access to Oracle, SQL Server or SQL Server Express when Regional Settings is not English US. (284746) • Improved performance when displaying and scrolling large shape files. (330656) 2d3dPAK • Posting a borehole note no longer hangs KINGDOM for projects with large number of wells. (319116) • Recalling a saved map will now display fault polygons. (322430) • KINGDOM no longer crashes when loading wells in Geographix Ascii 3 format, provided to client by Drilling Info. (322987) KINGDOM Software Release Notes for Version 8.5 SP2 September 2010 p. 8
  9. 9. ©2010 Seismic Micro-Technology, Inc. / www.seismicmicro.com • The user can now move or delete a SEG Y file after import is complete without exiting KINGDOM. (324047) • Improvements were made for well load time. The performance issue when displaying tops for wells on the base map has been resolved. (324653) • Performance has been improved when importing Logs> Multiple LAS logs into a project with a large number of wells. When the user selects the drop down list to select a well, the well list no longer takes a long time to open. (330585) Tunnel O • Transfer of horizon data between Landmark and SMT via Tunnel O no longer shifts inlines and crosslines by -1. (324728) AVOPAK • Adding gathers to a new or existing gallery using the digitize line method no longer fails with a "No gather to load" message. (320766) VelPAK • Velocity data imported from KINGDOM now covers field area as expected. The data is correctly listed when selected. (304532) • Under certain circumstances loading horizon data that does not have an associated fault polygon set into a model as an XYZ (control point) data type could produce an error message. This has been fixed, and it is no longer necessary to associate a fault polygon set with a horizon to avoid the error. (314560) • An issue with the VelPAK screen failing to display or being slow to open has been fixed. (318732) TracePAK • The Time <> Depth Conversion option in TracePAK now places the converted cube in the correct vertical position. (252498) • When generating "Average velocity" 3D volumes from a T-D Curve, the first pair of points in the Time/Depth curve is normally depth =0.0 and time= 0.0 (seconds). Since Time/Depth = 0/0 at this point, the current logic sets this velocity value to 0.0. Later on the Time<>Depth conversion finds this zero value and gives an error message.

KINGDOM updates are inclusive. Any problems fixed with previous Service Packs and Hot Fixes are included in the current Service Pack or Hot Fix. Bug Fixes in this Update (Reference numbers in parentheses) 2d/3dPAK • While using the 3D Hunt feature, the VSD update no longer blinks repeatedly. (322051) • Active fault surfaces were not properly displayed in time slices. Intersection points only were displayed. (325405) • When loading additional seismic data types into an existing 2D survey, horizon and fault interpretation may be lost if the incoming data extends the 2D line. Under these conditions users will be notified and can choose to 1) continue the seismic import only within the limits of the existing survey, 2) allow the 2D survey extension and redefine the survey limits, or 3) cancel the data loading process. An option is also available to skip the current survey's import and proceed to the next 2D line when "Import Multiple 2D SEG Y Files" is used. The choice to load only the incoming data type within limits of the existing 2D survey will ensure that any interpretation for that survey is preserved. (326629) • Poor performance was observed while adjusting mistie settings in multi-author environments using Oracle. Performance has been improved. (326668) VuPAK • The unexpected display of horizons outside the VuPAK area of interest has been fixed. This corrects the inaccuracy and also improves performance when loading and displaying large horizons in VuPAK.

  22. 22. ©2010 Seismic Micro-Technology, Inc. / www.seismicmicro.com Appendix A: Video Cards—Updated Hardware Requirements Two features available in KINGDOM versions 8.3 and later affect video card requirements. Volume co- blending (VuPAK) and shaded relief (2d3dPAK) take advantage of some of the new functions available in updated graphics libraries. Framebuffer Objects, a relatively new extension to OpenGL, is needed to make these two functions display properly. When shopping for a video card, look for a card that has: • OpenGL 2.1 or higher • DirectX 9.0 or higher • Shader Support 2.1 or higher • at least 512 MB RAM (at a minimum - of course, more is better) If you are unsure if your video card can meet these specifications, run a test program like OpenGLViewer (included with the DVD, or it can be downloaded from ftp://ftp2.realtech- vr.com/realtechv/pub/glview232.exe [32-bit] or http://www.realtech-vr.com/glview/download.html [64-bit]). For example, in the screen shot below, you can see that this video card with an older driver only has 66%% of the core features needed for OpenGL 2.1. KINGDOM Software Release Notes for Version 8.5 SP2 September 2010 p. 22
  23. 23. ©2010 Seismic Micro-Technology, Inc. / www.seismicmicro.com After updating to a new driver, the same video card now supports all features of OpenGL 2.1 VuPAK does not require the latest shader models and GPU functionality, but it does perform best with greater memory and faster processing speeds. However, even a moderately priced or older GPU can support VuPAK if it has shader support and the software running it is up-to-date. Development and testing for VuPAK was done utilizing Nvidia Quadro FX3700, FX3800, FX4600 & FX5200 Video Cards with 512MB and 768MB of memory.
