Drill Stem Test (DST)
Data Entry & Quantitative Analysis

Work is partially supported by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) under Grant Number DE-FE0002056.

This Java Applet allows the user to enter or import Drill Stem Test (DST) Data directly into the program. There are essentially no standard ASCII DST data files formats existing that will allow the user to read and process DST Data. This program was written to assist the user in entering DST data, perform quantitative analysis on the shut in pressure data and then to save the information into a Log ASCII Standard (LAS) version 3.0 File developed by the Canadian Well Logging Society . This version provides a means to collect all the geological data in one file. Although the LAS 3.0 Format has default data types, the user can add their own data types to the file provided they use the primary section types, i.e., Parameter, Definition and Data whenever possible, which are briefly paraphrased below,

Note: This program can handle english units only at this time.
