MIPS software is the industry's leading package for multi-finger caliper data processing and interpretation and now includes a comprehensive reporting option for pipe thickness measurements. The PC based system reads industry standard formats, provides a sophisticated analysis toolkit, and delivers the processed product to clients with a license free viewer.
The full MIPSPro package is designed for use when a complete log analysis and a detailed understanding is required. MIPSLite was introduced as a field processing package for QC and providing enhanced well site products. MIPSView is a license free viewer that can be supplied to end users to assist interpretation. All packages can interact with the 3D visualisation module MIPS3D.
This short video introduces the features and benefits of MIPSPro
MIPSPro provides detailed analysis and clear visualisation that enhances the interpretation of caliper and pipe thickness log data. Used globally by leading operating and service companies, MIPSPro maximizes data value by efficiently identifying and diagnosing well integrity issues. MIPSPro works with all types of caliper data and includes the following features:
MIPSPro gives the analyst a comprehensive set of processing options to prepare the data for interpretation. These include:
MIPSPro assists in efficient interpretation of log data through:
An extensive statistical analysis of penetration and restriction data provides the basis for quantitative interpretation. With more than 30 statistical results available for each joint, the analyst has full flexibility in the reporting of pipe integrity.
The integrated reporting module in MIPSPro allows the analyst to produce structured, custom built reports in Word, PDF or TIFF format. Structure, format and content can be tailored to analyst, Service Company or end user reporting standards and re-used for consistent presentation. Features of the statistical reporting include histograms, bar charts, joint analysis tables and pipe grading.
Log sections, 2D cross sections and 3D views are all easily captured and added to the written report. Introductory and concluding text sections complete the report. MIPSPro reports are supported with API style log plots, LAS output and presentation of data in MIPSView. Many elements can be pre-prepared and reused for time efficient reporting.
MIPSView is provided with MIPSPro as a license free version of the 2D and 3D viewers for distribution to the client, allowing interaction with images exactly as the analyst viewed them. Visualising data in this way aids communication and understanding of the results. The analyst can define scenes in MIPSPro and the client can open these again in MIPSView.
The 3D image in MIPS3D is driven from the MIPSPro viewer, allowing features to be identified in either viewer and cross referenced. MIPS3D provides a number of viewing and animation options so data features can be effectively communicated. See the MIPS3D section for further details.
Processing History within MIPSPro captures details of all parameters and processes allowing QC, audit or reconstruction of the analysis. History details can be embedded in LAS files or displayed in the MIPS Viewer.
MIPSLite provides a subset of the full MIPSPro package and is designed for use by the field engineer when an enhanced multi finger caliper well site product is required. It provides a range of caliper QC and processing options suitable for well site use, and sophisticated two and three dimensional data presentations. An overview of the well condition can be understood and easily communicated to the customer using appealing 2D and 3D visual presentations. Points of interest can be examined in detail, captured as images and annotated for easy reference.
Output options include plotting of pdf or tiff log sections, 2D curve displays and cross-sections, along with 3D images, LAS and mip1 files for further processing and reporting in MIPSPro. The same flexible 2D and 3D viewing options are available to the end user via the license free MIPSView module provided with MIPSLite.
MIPSLite provides the field engineer or analyst with an essential set of processing options. These include:
Efficient processing is aided by quick access to commonly used commands, and by archive and re-use of company standard or user preferred settings and presentations.
Zones of interest are easily captured and communicated as Log sections, 2D cross sections and 3D views in pdf, tiff or .avi video formats.
MIPSLite results can also be provided as API style log plots, LAS files or presented to end users using the license free MIPSView module.
MIPSView is provided with the MIPSLite package as a license free version of the 2D and 3D viewers for distribution to the client, allowing interaction with images exactly as the field engineer or analyst viewed them. Visualising data in this way aids communication and understanding of the results. The field engineer or analyst can define scenes in MIPSLite and the client can open these again in MIPSView.
The 3D image in MIPS3D is driven from the MIPSLite viewer, allowing features to be identified in either viewer and cross referenced. MIPS3D provides a number of viewing and display options so data features can be effectively communicated.
Processing History within MIPSLite captures details of all parameters and processes allowing QC, audit or reconstruction of the processing. History details can be embedded in LAS files or displayed in MIPSLite or MIPSView.
MIPSView is a license free and installation free viewing package provided to the end-user with the same 2D and 3D visualisation tools as MIPSPro. Important data features and views can be communicated by the log analyst by defining scenes in MIPSPro that can be opened directly by end users in MIPSView. A range of tools to aid visualisation are available in MIPSView – these include depth scrolling and zooming, editable presentation parameters, annotating and plotting. 2D cross-sections may be viewed, and 3D images rotated, panned, re-scaled, and saved as images or videos.
Both the 2D and 3D Viewers allow the end user to view the dataset for the entire well or zoom in to inspect a single corrosion pit or other small features. 3D views with the ability to rotate the image allow the geometry of anomalies to readily visualised and understood. Cross sections and statistical curves displayed in the 2D viewer provide further understanding of features identified by caliper or wall thickness instruments. Editable annotation layers provide a further option for communicating features.
MIPSView users can capture images of 2D cross sections, 3D views, plot log sections and record videos files for further reporting.

This short video introduces the main features and benefits of the MIPS3D viewer.
MIPS3D is our fully interactive 3D multi-arm caliper and array thickness visualisation tool, and is provided as an integral part of MIPSPro and MIPSLite packages. An installation free, license free version of MIPS3D is also included with MIPSView for use by the end user.
Visualisation of results in MIPS3D aids communication and provides an additional level of understanding and clarity to the data.
MIPS3D provides many display options to optimise presentation of results.
The image in MIPS3D may be synchronised with the MIPSPro, MIPSLite or MIPSView 2D window to show the same depth range so features can be cross-refernced, or viewed independently in depth panning or 'fly down' mode.
MIPS3D offers incremental and continuous rotation about all axes, depth panning, colour coded surfaces, static image capture and AVI movie generation. Further options include wire frame and cut away views, and the display of pipe OD. The displayed image is optimised through a number of user controls that include data reduction, perspective, lighting and controls of background and text colour. Scale and zoom control further optimise the image. Advanced options include the display of non-straight tubular centre lines, and a drift tool.
All MIPS packages are fully documented with interactive help and manuals. Epidote provide technical support via email. Training and consultancy is also available.
MIPS Pro runs on a PC platform under Windows XP, WIndows Vista, Windows 7 or Windows 8, 32 or 64bit
