integrated asset modeling

Optimizing Production With Integrated Asset Modeling

Integrated asset modeling covers the spectrum of reservoir development and ongoing operations activities. It can focus on optimization of daily production in a single well or be as expansive as making strategic portfolio management decisions. The wealth of data acquired or generated throughout a field’s lifecycle and use of multiple software tools facilitate a detailed…

reservoir characterization and modeling

Overcoming the Challenge of Complex Reservoir Characterization

Engineers and geoscientists know more than anyone about the challenges associated with complex reservoir characterization, especially in systems such as unconventionals, carbonates, and sands. Continuous monitoring entails the provision of new data which must be assimilated with existing information to achieve a full analytical profile of the reservoir in question. What’s needed is a visual…

4D Seismic Monitoring of Reservoir Change Through Visualization

When it comes to hydrocarbon exploration, risks are inevitable; there’s no way to completely eliminate risks but there are ways to reduce them and optimize asset production. One such mitigation strategy is 4D seismic monitoring of reservoir change. The ability to acquire time-lapse seismic data allows engineers to visualize the reservoir in greater detail and…

seismic survey interpretation

Enhancing Seismic Survey Interpretation With Data Integration

Improved interpretations of seismic surveys are achieved when additional, relevant subsurface data are integrated with seismic data to provide better context for the analysis. However, the challenge of integrating the volume and variety of available seismic, geologic, petrophysical, wellbore, and production data into a single environment for analysis is often the greatest barrier to obtaining…

standardization in oil and gas industry

Improving Upon Standardization in the Oil and Gas Industry

Standardization brings many benefits to the oil and gas industry. The established WITSML standard and the coming OSDU data platform both facilitate easier access, integration, processing, and sharing of data. Leading industry software tools from Schlumberger and Landmark have become de facto standards for acquiring, managing, and analyzing data. Software products like CoViz 4D from…

temporal data analysis

The Value of Temporal Data Analysis in Reservoir Management

Geologic structures, subsurface conditions, and reservoir production are described by a combination of diverse datasets generated or acquired throughout the reservoir lifecycle. Over time, these datasets essentially depict the reservoir evolution. Unfortunately, data diversity, proprietary formats, different timesteps, and discipline-specific software used to manage and analyze these datasets inherently limit their value. Individually, datasets tell…

structural interpretation of seismic data

Enhancing Structural Interpretation of Seismic Data With Velocity Modeling

While there are traditional approaches to the structural interpretation of seismic data for oil exploration and velocity modeling in the industry, these approaches can be enhanced through advancements in technology. Without the ability to integrate and visualize all relevant data in a comprehensive environment, professionals may overlook valuable pays. Geoscientists can benefit from rapid updates…

risks in oil and gas production

Mitigating Common Risks in Oil and Gas Production

While there’s no way to completely eliminate mishaps and failures that can create potential risks in oil and gas production, operators can implement key monitoring measures that help them find precarious aberrations sooner rather than later. In order to properly monitor changing reservoir conditions, engineers need a software system that fosters a wider understanding of…
