Manage subsurface well data.

Travis build status Development status Latest version Python version Coveralls Codacy code review License


The lasio project provides a very nice way to read and write CWLS Log ASCII Standard files. The result is an object, based on OrderedDict, that contains all the LAS data — it's more or less analogous to the LAS file.

Sometimes we want a higher-level object, for example to contain methods that have nothing to do with LAS files. We may want to handle other well data, such as deviation surveys, tops (aka picks), engineering data, striplogs, synthetics, and so on. This is where welly comes in.

welly uses lasio for data I/O, but hides much of it from the user. We recommend you look at both projects before deciding if you need the 'well-level' functionality that welly provides.
