New releases of wellBalance and wellPlanner

This week we released significant upgrades to our software for planning a well, and managed pressure drilling. The most significant upgrade is having added calculated ECD based on actual MPD pressure (separate calculation), but the following are also in this release:

• The circulation sub can be placed independently of the BHA. Because of this the configurable BHA length has been removed
• Bug fix of the circulation sub flow through, the user no longer has to resend the value for the model to use it
• Upgraded the Fortran compiler
• Fixed uninitialized variables
• Well configuration now has the minimum curvature implemented for calculating TVD, northing and easting in trajectory, and TVD in the other tabs
• Added calculator widget, which can make quick calculations on volumes, convert between pressures and densities, and convert between MD and TVD.
• More extensive user manuals
