Hi everyone,

I have a 3D model and would like to insert an injection/recharge well that has several screened intervals.
How can I best achieve this?

a multilayer well with multiple screens needs to be splitted in multiple ones.
As per well only one screen top and screen bottom can be defined.

Please note, that overlapping or touching screen levels are not allowed.

For general assignement of multilayer wells, please refer to the Felow help "Multilayer Workflow"

In case that you really NEED to simulate one well with multiple screens (but one pump) you could use a single-node sink (Well BC) in combination with different types of discrete features (1D edge features for the screened parts, 'arbitrary' features for the closed parts). This, however, would have to be done step by step (not in the multi-layer well dialog).

Dear BT,

did you solve the problem. I have to do same thing but I don't know how to do it. Dear Peter can you exlain the steps more detailed, please ?

Thank you Sven and Peter for your suggestions. I have used Peter's approach to represent the well.


Each screened interval of the well can be represented by edge discrete feature elements (DFEs). This is done by selecting the edges in the model corresponding to the screens and adding it to the Discrete Features panel as an Edge Feature Element (right-click on Discrete Features heading to bring up the context menu).

The cased sections of the well are represented by arbitrary DFEs. Use the select tool with the Select Arbitrary Node Path option to select the nodes corresponding to the top and bottom of the cased section. Add it to the Discrete Features panel as an Arbitrary 1D Feature Element.

Thanks for the feedback, BT, and thanks for describing the procedure for Cidem! Hope it'll work out well for both of you!
