Reservoir Monitoring Tool Using 4D Data Integration

Much of the data available to a typical hydrocarbon asset team is temporal, and understanding the changing response of a reservoir over time is critical to asset management. CoViz® 4D makes it possible to simultaneously view, interrogate and analyze multiple time variant data sets in a common environment. Inputs include 4D seismic surveys, reservoir simulation models / ensembles, fluid production and production tests, well events, microseismic data, and other time relevant data that are critical to reservoir management. Data can be evaluated simultaneously in time snapshots or time sequence animations. Well planning in the context of this data fusion is available through the advanced CoViz Integrated Well Designer (CVIWD) module.

Spend Time Hunting for Opportunity—Not for Data

Multidisciplinary teams are made up of experts who utilize specialized tools to advance their understanding within their realm of expertise. Despite advanced networking of data and information, no individual in an asset team has complete knowledge of the location, identity, or purpose of all of the information that is vital and available to all members of the team. Many of these disparate data are processed within a variety of software applications provided by multiple vendors and operated by multidisciplinary users with unique expertise. CoViz 4D—through the Data Registry module —provides a means for teams and individuals to access information simultaneously from many sources and applications in a flexible viewing environment without the need for specific knowledge of where the information is stored, or how to run each software application that generated the information. Data and information to be included become a function of team needs, not limited by user’s expertise: critical surface information can be united with subsurface drilling; geological, petrophysical and reservoir data are visualized with maps, models, and displays of related tabular, graphical, and text resources.

Integrated 2D-3D-4D Visualization for Individual and Collaborative Team Sessions

Advanced visualization technology was first envisioned to empower teams in a collaborative environment for processes such as exploration planning, exploitation evaluation, and reservoir surveillance. Dynamic Graphics,® Inc. brings these capabilities to the individual user’s session to enable team members to have broad data fusion capability at all times. With greater access to and comprehension of vital information from the individual user’s session or in collaborative meetings, Dynamic Graphics, Inc. customers are positioned to make better and faster decisions in order to seize opportunities and accelerate returns from efforts and investments.

Production data shown with reservoir simulation and structural models. Fluid production is displayed as towers (that change in height over time) along with customized alert flags; a separate 2D time series plot of fluid production is also displayed and is linked in time with the CoViz 4D Viewer.
