A while back on the blog we did a series that touched on changing between linear and log scales on the fly in Power BI. In this post, we’re going to see how using the Charturo custom visual from the Power BI Appsource simplifies the process of adding this functionality to Power BI Reports and the functional benefits of using Charturo over the standard Line Chart.
A new Small Multiples visualization feature has been released for public preview in Power BI. I was thrilled to see this first announced on the roadmap and am looking forward to putting it through its paces now that it is out in preview.
“Small Multiples” use multiple similar views to show different partitions of a dataset. Small multiples are sometimes called trellis or grid charts and until now, you have had to use custom visuals or some SVG tricks to get the functionality in Power BI.

We are happy to announce that in December 2020 Mi4 released an update to theProduction Review Dashboard with new features and functionality. Thisdashboard is available to all Productioneer customers andallows oil and gas organizations to efficiently aggregate and analyze oil and gas production across a diverse collection of assets quickly and efficiently in one report.
The Production Review Dashboard offersoil and gas companiesa modern dashboarding tool without procuring any software licenses orbuilding it in house.
Date and time values have been the bane of programmers’ existence since Pandora opened a box several millennia back……at least it feels that long. I wanted to share with you how we implemented flexible date parameters for an Azure Data Factory pipeline in a recent project.
Productioneer has an extensive paginated report library for our customers to utilize. We have everything from simple data exports to paginated reports that highlight variances and trends.
One of the reports we have had in our library for quite a while, is the Tank Stock report. The user selects a day and the report returns the tank stock and tank production for each tank in the organization for the selected day. It aggregates the stock and production at the tank, battery, field, and organization level and provides the tank strappings (feet and inches) for each tank. It is a standard and widely used report and I know it has not had any significant changes requested to it for at least 3 years.

Mi4 has helped many of our clients integrate data from data subscription services into their own projects and data initiatives. One of the many subscription services we have implemented solutions around is Enverus Drillinginfo’s Direct Access API. The Direct Access API allows Enverus customers with DI Plus subscriptions to access Enverus’ extensive collection of public data and bring it in-house.
TL/DR: Check out our C# Classes and SQL scripts for the Enverus Drillinginfo Direct Access API on our GitHub.
As we wrote about earlier this month, the Texas Railroad Commission (RRC) released a treasure trove of data freely available to the public on their site. It was like Christmas in the Mi4 office. After we sang some carols and drank some hot chocolate, we realized that there was so much data. We didn’t know where to start.
Christmas in September
As my colleague @Talal wrote last week, we decided to get Lat/Long coordinates for every Texas well. In his post, he explained, there are many use cases for this data, so it seemed like an excellent place to start.
Is Your Oilfield Management Platform Doing These 6 Things?
“Digitization is the new lubricant for the future of the oil and gas industry’s upstream sector.” –Strategy& report by PwC
In order to keep a competitive advantage in a cutthroat marketplace, world-class oil and gas operations are tapping into the latest technologies. Augmented reality (AR), machine learning, automation, and robotics are all part of ‘what’s next’ in oil and gas exploration, but the greatest investments in transformative technologies are taking shape around software designed to make exploration more agile and data more accessible than ever before.

Welcome to the second post in our miniseries: “Are You Developing Power BI Reports the Right Way?” In the two-part series we are designing a sample Power BI report visualizing the weather on Mars and using some real world techniques.
