Schlumberger offers several software platforms that enable workflows to be integrated across disciplines: Petrel E&P software platform, Techlog wellbore software platform, and Avocet production operations software platform. By preserving the cumulative knowledge of asset teams, integrated workflows provide an understanding of the interdependencies between the reservoir, wells and facilities in context, as well as a more comprehensive appreciation of risks and uncertainties.
Avocet Integrated Asset Modeler allows subsurface and surface models to be coupled so interaction effects between the production system and the reservoir are included when evaluating design alternatives and defining contingencies.
The wealth of new data that accompanies construction and drilling is assimilated into the design models via the Petrel platform. This cyclic approach enables models to be continuously updated and used for reservoir and production management throughout the life of the asset. It also ensures that asset knowledge is retained from conceptual designs through brownfield redevelopment.
Modeling at the appropriate scale
The Petrel platform makes it effortless to move between models with the appropriate level of detail to support investment decisions.
The Petrel and Techlog platforms extract the maximum value from measurements to accurately characterize the subsurface and determine recoverable volumes—crucial knowledge for the appraisal process. Petrel Uncertainty and Optimization, together with the MEPO multiple realization optimizer, enables engineers and geoscientists to incorporate uncertainties arising from gaps in the measurements into their field development schemes. Reservoir uncertainties and multiple recovery schemes are rapidly simulated with the ECLIPSE reservoir simulator.
The INTERSECT high-resolution reservoir simulator accurately represents complex geology and wells, informing decisions related to specification details, costings, and mitigation strategies during the design stage. The optimization capabilities of the Petrel platform and MEPO optimizer make it straightforward to design complex wells or development strategies.
Throughout these phases, the OLGA transient and PIPESIM steady-state flow simulators support the design of the production system of wells, pipelines, and facilities. The PIPESIM simulator is able to screen numerous design scenarios, while the OLGA simulator provides increased resolution into flow assurance challenges. Understanding transient flow conditions in deepwater wells and pipelines is essential for determining the feasibility of the design concept and creating operational procedures.
The multiscale capabilities of the Petrel platform ensure you can quickly and easily access the right model for the right decision—from a straightforward analytical calculation to high-resolution, full-field simulation with multiple realizations. With the Petrel platform, reservoir models are rapidly constructed and updated with new data as it becomes available.
Data to decisions
Merak planning, risk, and reserves software can be coupled with Avocet Integrated Asset Modeler to evaluate production economics throughout development and redevelopment operations.
