Well Status

This is a very useful indicator.


The well status is used to indicate the usability condition of each well.

 

With this indicator, you will be able to audit how many wells of each status you have in the system.

  • ​Drilling Status:

This will be the status by default when creating a new well. 

It indicates that the Well is under construction. 

When a well has this status, the system allows to change its "Location" and "Well Log".

It is not possible to add new services to wells in Drilling Status, like pump placement, etc.

Load the Location and the Well Log correctly into the system before changing the status to Active.

  • Active Status: 

The Active status indicates that the well is completely suited to work properly.

When a Well is in Active Status, the system does not allow to change its location and Well Log sections directly in the Well Details page.  To do so, click the Edit button at the end of the Well Details page.

With this status you can add all the service orders you want, but it protects the Location and Well Log sections.

  • Inactive Status: 

In Water Well Online, wells with Service Orders created cannot be eliminated.

 

This status indicates that the well is currently unusable or damaged, but it was an Active well in the past. 

Historical information from the well is kept in the system so the user can have information at hand about its location, performance and service orders.

 

Well Location

This information refers to the geographical coordinates where the well is located: Latitude and Longitude.
