2018

Depogrid

A new type of grid, the depogrid, is introduced in the Petrel 2018.1 release. The most frequently used modeling, property population, visualization, and simulation tools required for the creation and analysis of single porosity global grid models are supported.

INTERSECT Connector

From 2018.1, Petrel 2018.x is released with INTERSECT Connector 2017 and the latest INTERSECT Connector 2018 at the time Petrel 2018.x is released. Further upgrades to INTERSECT Connector 2018 will be available on the INTERSECT installers. It is highly recommended to upgrade the INTERSECT Connector when installing INTERSECT.

Geophysics: General

  • Snap intersection plane: It is now possible to snap an intersection plane (inlines, crosslines, and random lines) and update the Interpretation window accordingly where the given line is displayed by retaining the vertical position and zoom factors. For one-point snapping, the display is centered on the point. For two-point snapping, the display is centered in the middle of the points.

  • SRD object: You can now create a new seismic reference datum (SRD) only from the Project settings under the Coordinates and units tab by clicking Create SRD and entering the name, the elevation from MSL, and the replacement velocity. It is not possible to delete it afterward. You can use a new SRD to redefine the project reference datum.

    The SRD object now has a deterministic identity defined by its name, elevation to time zero, and replacement velocity.

    Projects that were SRD-compatible before the upgrade remain compatible after the upgrade.

  • Mesh probes: The mesh probe is a new geobody probe created from editable triangle meshes. This improves subtle stratigraphic/structural feature delineation and fault analysis.

  • Editable triangle meshes: You can now convert faults, horizons, and surfaces into editable triangle meshes. You can now simplify editable triangle meshes.

Geophysics: Quantitative Interpretation

  • 2D forward modeling
    • Create user event has been renamed to Digitize Model Event and is now located under the Digitized Events node. The Create Event button has been renamed Create Measurement Event.

    • Average calculations for all bodies and selected bodies were previously calculated based on the constant value of the body. The average calculation has been changed to use the mean of all the values stored in the quantity that reside within a body. This ensures that if a body is filled with interpolated values that the average is true to the values stored within the calculation and displayed within the model chart.

    • You can now apply a fluid substitution to a body that has been renamed (on the Initial body fills tab) in a user-defined or seismic line model.

    • You can now move a 3D line that is being used in a seismic line model to another cube without throwing an exception.

    • When you add a new well to a study, the reservoir base is placed by default above the underburden base.

    • If a well is selected, you can now use a horizon interpretation or well top to specify the model top and overburden and underburden working intervals.

    • Multi-angle impedances are now correctly calculated when no wavelet is selected. Where no wavelet is specified, the impedance is calculated at each angle and the average impedance is shown.

    • When calculating elastic or synthetic impedance quantities, the normalization now defaults to the average of all bodies in the model.

    • Measurement events can now be calculated and shown on any quantity even if the quantity is not the active quantity. Snap-to options calculate for all situations and support changes to depth/time. Visible toggle and color of events can be set in any domain and will propagate to other domains. When you turn an event on or off, the model is recalculated so that movements in events can update other events accordingly. Switching between different sessions recalculates models so that they are always up to date.

    • When creating a new user event, the intersection with an existing event is now correctly calculated if you continue to digitize points outside the current body.

    • When editing a user event, if the intersecting point with an existing event is moved or deleted, the resulting body is now always recognized.

    • Wavelets removed from a reflective synthetic remain removed, rather than reappearing when the next value changes.

    • Seismic line models: When using volumes within measurement events, if the inline or crossline line number was changed using the Intersection player, the study would not relink to the new position. The link has now been established so that changing the line number maintains the link to the volume selected.

  • Rock physics: Introduction of Rock Physics Modeling (RPM) Forward and Reverse Modeling Functions.
    • The RPM Forward Modeling module enables you to apply calibrated rock physics models (RPMs) to log and volume data.

    • RPM Reverse Modeling module is similar, but applies RPMs in the reverse direction. The calculation is performed by running the RPMs many times in the forward direction with varying inputs to build a look-up table of values, which can then be used to match specified output values to likely inputs.              

    • The Create and edit working interval dialog box now enables you to set and update the depth domain.

    • You can now view your plot with an aspect ratio of 1:1 rather than filling the whole space within the dialog box by right-clicking in the plot.

    • It is now possible to crossplot 2D and 3D seismic data within the RPM crossplot window by dragging a seismic collection onto the insert arrow within the survey panel.

    • When the seismic volumes have been selected for the X and Y axes, the data is shown in the crossplot if the domain of the seismic data matches the current crossplot domain. If the seismic data cannot be shown in the crossplot window, a warning message is shown.

    • To be able to crossplot the seismic data, the data must have the same geometry. Because the number of samples within seismic data can be large, it is now possible to decimate the plot data within the Surveys pane by selecting the geometry of the data required.

    • It is now possible to define 3D working intervals that are applied to the survey data using horizons, surfaces, or absolute depths/times. The domain of the working interval must match the domain of the seismic data.

    • It is now possible to incorporate user- written RPMs (written in C/C++ and C#) within the crossplot. The location of the external directory containing the RPM model is defined in the RPM templates dialog box.

    • Cutoff logs used in working intervals now use global well logs instead of the local logs used in the currently active wells. Existing projects containing working intervals have their local logs upgraded to global logs where possible. If it is not possible to replace all the local logs with a single global well log, local logs continue to be used.

    • Polygons defined within a rock physics study can now be used within other studies if the templates for the X and Y axes match. For example, if a polygon is defined in Study 1 in P-velocity Vs S-velocity, this polygon can be used in one or more rock physics studies.

    • When accessing the RPM Templates dialog box from a crossplot, only templates that can be displayed in the variable space defined by the crossplot axes are displayed. This can be overridden using the Show All check box.

    • To set a temporary manual plot range on the X or Y axis, two new options are available from the shortcut menu from within the RPM crossplot. Deselecting the Auto-scale checkbox enables the maximum and minimum data entry fields. Changing the scale used by zooming or using the mouse wheel overrides the manual scale options.

    • Mineral fractions used to define the cutoffs in working intervals and the fraction values used as the input to some RPMs now use the VShale template as the display units instead of the Fraction template.

Geophysics: Seismic Well Tie

Time shift correction: In the Synthetic generation study and in the Deterministic wavelet extraction method, it is now possible to apply a time shift correction (plus half, zero, minus half) to control the way in which the result of the reflectivity calculation is aligned. The option is available under Advanced settings.

Geophysics: Studio

SRD references table: The SRD references table is available from the Petrel Studio 2018 repository data table. The SRD references table lists all the SRD references in the repository with the associated elevation to time zero and replacement velocity.

  • You can delete SRD references if you also delete all the dependent data.

  • Time shift is not applied in the repository data table.

The repository data table displays SRD references information in five columns (read-only sync status, SRD name, elevation to time zero, replacement velocity, and editable comments). Sync status is not currently supported.

Geology: General

The Studio knowledge platform support to send and retrieve surface parameters used in the Make/edit surface process: You can now send to and retrieve from the Studio data repository all the parameters used to make a surface in the Make/edit surface process.

  • You can round-trip all the parameters used to make a surface in the Make/edit surface process.

  • Only new surfaces that you send to the Studio platform store those parameters.

  • You can index and filter surfaces using those parameters in the Studio repository.

Geology: Wells

  • General well tops folder: You can now create a user-defined or general well tops folder in the Input pane. You can drag an existing well tops folder into the new folder.

    The general well tops folder has the following benefits:
    • Improved input pane data organization in projects that contain many well tops folders.

    • All existing Petrel workflows that utilize well tops are supported.

    • The well tops inside the general folder can be round tripped in the Studio platform in Petrel 2018.1.

    • There is no specific support dedicated to well tops because this is a general folder.

  • Update all well top attributes: You can now update all non-predefined well top attributes. The option is available by right-clicking Attributes in a Well Tops folder.

  • Stream mud log data: You can now stream mud log data from the InterACT service to the Petrel platform. The information streamed into the Petrel platform is only the lithology and cuttings. Lithology is streamed as a discrete log using the Geoservices symbols as defaults, and cuttings are represented in the Petrel platform as Fraction logs, which can be visualized in a summation track.

Modeling: Structural Framework Modeling

New framework fault modeling algorithm and QC: A new fault modeling algorithm has been implemented for a more robust consumption in volume-based modeling and depospace. In the new interactive Fault framework dialog box, three work steps can be performed.

  • Fault modeling (the creation of individual triangular mesh faults)

  • Fault welding (the creation of the intersections)

  • Truncation editing (managing the fault relationships)

A new QC manager detects inconsistencies and possible issues for downstream consumption of the framework faults.

Modeling: Gridding

  • Depogrid QC tools: You can create properties for the QC of the grid quality using the Geometrical modeling dialog box. You can display the up and down throw horizons as lines on the depogrid faults. These tools can help you identify issues in the input data, depospace, or parent structural framework, which you can then investigate and address to improve your grid.

  • User-defined segments for depogrids: Segments of a depogrid are represented by a grid property. You can use the new Segments dialog box to define multiple segment properties on your depogrid for use in your volumetrics and simulations. You can select a subset of the depogrid faults. Segments are defined as the volumes bounded by the extrapolation in 3D of the selected grid faults.

Modeling: Property Population

  • Volume weighting of cells in the Facies modeling process, the Petrophysical modeling process, and the Data analysis process: A new volume weighting option is available in Zone settings in the Facies modeling dialog box, the Petrophysical modeling dialog box, and the Data analysis process.

  • New native geostatistical library for facies and petrophysical modeling and Make/edit surfaces: The Gslib geostatistical library has been replaced by a new native geostatistical library. This includes the following methods: Kriging, Indicator kriging, Sequential Gaussian simulation, and Sequential indicator simulation. Pre-2018.1 Gslib properties can still be (re) run using the Gslib methods. For legacy Gslib properties, there is a Use legacy method (Gslib) check box in the Expert tab.

Exploration Geology: Petroleum Systems Modeling

  • Import existing PetroMod models into the Petrel platform: Convert an existing petroleum systems model originally built in the PetroMod software into the Petrel model structure with all associated data. Once in the Petrel platform, the models can be updated, refined, and re-simulated directly from the Petrel platform.

  • Time and depth extractions for 3D modeling results: Extract time and depth data at individual locations as a vertical stack (1D) from 3D models. This enables you to visualize and communicate 1D depth plots of grid properties such as temperature, maturity, or pore pressure. It also allows you to plot changes in cell properties through geological time (time plots).

  • Build 3D TecLink models in the Petrel platform: Including a new enhanced workflow solution to create 3D block-boundaries, you can fully build 3D TecLink models and simulate the model directly from the Petrel platform. At the moment, you cannot visualize the results in Petrel. For visualization workflows, you can easily open the model results in the PetroMod 3D Viewer.

Exploration Geology: Play and Prospect Assessment

  • Depth-dependent volume estimation method: It is now possible to assess prospect resource potential using the depth-dependent volume estimation method: Depth vs. area and thickness.
    • Use the blue arrow depth vs. area function to populate the depth vs. area table for each assessment unit.

    • Manually enter and edit the data in depth vs area tables with uncertainty distribution.

    • Enter the hydrocarbon water contact directly or as the column height. For multiphase cases, there is the option to enter non-associated gas contacts as a percentage of the total column height.

  • Save outlines to the GeoX platform: You can now save geopolygons in the GeoX database to be associated with the prospect assessments of an exploration portfolio.
    • You can visualize the full set of outlines for the geological, geographical, and business objects in the GeoX database in a spatial context using a map service.

    • The map and feature service enables you to share Petrel geopolygons and GeoX data with other map tools as ESRI ArcGIS.

    All security permissions defined on the database are honored.

Reservoir Engineering: Simulation

  • Case Converter: A new Case Converter dialog box to manage case conversion has been added to replace the right-click options.

    From the Case Converter dialog box, you can select or drop an input case to create:
    • ECLIPSE cases (former Convert to Petrel case)

    • INTERSECT cases with Development Strategies

    • INTERSECT cases with Field Management Strategies

    There are some advanced options to control the conversion:
    • Preferred defaults (available for INTERSECT conversions)

    • Grid property conversion - the default option is to read properties from the deck. It also creates grid property modification sets if modifier keywords (EQUALS, ADD, MULTIPLY, OPERATE, for example) are present in the deck.

    • Schedule section conversion, as in previous versions.

    With the Case Converter, you can create Petrel-managed cases in one step. For example, you can import an ECLIPSE deck into the Petrel platform and create an INTERSECT-FM case without creating a Petrel-ECLIPSE converted case.

  • User-created custom scripts support: Support for users to create custom INTERSECT scripts. This has been enabled through the FM user interface and in the IXF editor.
    • FM interface: Enables custom nodes to be editable by users. These are: CustomControls, CustomVariables, CustomAction, and CustomScripts.

    • IXF editor support: Support for IXF-like functionalities for Python commands – auto complete, syntax highlighting, etc.

Reservoir Engineering: RE Extension Suite

Material Balance for Petrel: In addition to the existing plugins in the RE Extension Suite (Hydraulic Fracture Modeler, Geoscreening, and EOR Screening and Decision) from 2018.1, Material Balance for the Petrel platform is available.

Material Balance enables you to create tank models with influx support for single tanks, with a focus on history matching workflows, by enabling user cross-validation of the static and dynamic models. Petrel users can define tanks using Petrel objects; furthermore, these tanks can be calibrated based on uncertain parameters and observed data, generating visual outputs as energy plots, Havlena Odeh plots and P/Z versus cumulative production plots that are useful for reservoir characterization workflows.

Guru

Guru module now included with all core licenses: The Guru module will now automatically be included with every Petrel core license from 2018.1 onward. Customers upgrading to or purchasing 2018.1 will now be able to access all the features and content included with the Guru module without purchasing a separate module license.

Petrel Core

Live collaboration: You can now join a live collaboration workflow in real time during team project review. At least two Petrel sessions and licenses are required for users to collaborate. The live collaboration workflow is delivered for:
  • Well tops stratigraphy, fault tops and others

  • Regular surfaces

  • Points

Note: Attributes are not sent to the collaboration space, only the parent object.

To start collaboration, update the %AppData%\Schlumberger\Petrel\2018\PetrelConfiguration.xml to enable and define the shared storage location of collaboration files. For example:

<Collaboration Uri="file:///D:/Collaboration/" Interval="10" Enabled="True"/>

Petrel users must have read/write access to this location and it must not be longer than 70 characters.

Create and join sessions, open the Collaboration manager from the Manage data group on the Home tab. Visit the Petrel Help Center documentation for more details.

    • Set observation number: You can now set the observation number automatically in the well tops spreadsheet using the Set observation number option.

    • Interpreter updates: The Interpreter column in the Well tops spreadsheet now updates only when you make a significant change to a well top by either moving the top location or by changing its definition.

  • Well optimizer: Well optimizer functionality under Automated design is retired from Petrel as announced in the 2015 release.

  • Import logs indexed by time: The LAS loader now supports the import of logs indexed by time. Petrel uses the TDR of the well to calculate the log MDs.

  • Edit TD (MD) in the Wells manger spreadsheet: From 2017.1, you can edit the TD of a well in the Well manager spreadsheet.

  • Convert explicit trajectory to DX, DY, TVD: It is now possible to upgrade explicit trajectories to DX, DY, TVD surveys. MDs are recalculated during conversion and the new survey becomes editable.

  • Checkshots improvements:

    • It is now possible to display multiple trajectories for the same well correctly in the TWT domain.

    • When either changing or editing the active trajectory of a well, you can now decide how to synchronize the existing checkshot by selecting either Calculate MD from TVD or Calculate TVD from MD by right-clicking in the checkshot.

    • When transferring checkshot data via RPT, the one-way time log is no longer calculated.

Geology: Well Section Window

  • The Well section window domain, vertical and horizontal scales, and well position synchronization can be defined at a global level.

  • The cross-section alignment and vertical and deviated displays can be defined at a global level.

Exploration Geology: Play and Prospect Assessment

  • Asymmetric risk model: The assessment workflow now accepts asymmetric risk models. An asymmetric model may have a different number of risk factors on the regional and local level.

  • Usability improvement (Workflow): You can now directly define the Assessment Unit in the Assessment setup instead of its being defined by the stacking process.

    In both Assessment setup and Make PPA, the defined steps (play risk, conditional risk, and assessment units) are more intuitively displayed and consistent between the two processes.

    The Assessment setup process has become more flexible. Now only one of the defined input steps is required to run the stacking process in the Make assessment unit.

  • Usability improvements (Edit): You can edit volume models after the assessment is created and risk attributing can now be done in the Assessment process.

Reservoir Engineering: General

  • Improved ECLIPSE to Petrel case conversion: Several enhancements have been added to the Convert to Petrel case process.
