New Software Release

OFM 2018 Has Arrived

Wednesday, 30 May 2018

Product details

The OFM well and reservoir analysis software is a powerful tool designed to aid in the day-to-day surveillance and management of oil and gas fields. The OFM software provides an intuitive, user-friendly interface enabling you to view, modify, and analyze production and reservoir data within the Microsoft Windows environment. You can perform basic and complex analyses for individual or multiple completions, groups of wells, an entire field, or several fields. The OFM software is the ideal tool for all work environments and users. OFM software is suited for the occasional user, yet sophisticated enough for advanced petroleum engineering analyses. Whether at the well site, office, or home, the OFM software enables you to access or load data from both local desktop and corporate repositories such as Oracle and SQL Server databases.

Release details

Customizable and standard dashboards

Organize your customizable and standard dashboard view to streamline data analysis. This tool enables you to find trends in reservoir and production data using various analysis modules, including Line, Scatter, Bar, Report, Map, and DCA, in a single view.

Analysis dashboard with new mapping module

Dashboards can now be created to consist of stacked layers of different mapping techniques such as well symbols, bubble, grid, contour, well spacing, map server, shapefile, annotation, bounded, and deviation on a new GIS or non-GIS background layer. The mapping techniques have multidimensional capabilities for controlling color, shape, and size to get deeper insight to the areal trend. Users can connect to public or private map servers or bring in shapefiles to develop data insights.

Analysis dashboard with new reporting module

The new reporting module enables you to build and launch exception-based reports to highlight data outliers based on conditions or filter out data across columns using cross filtering techniques.

New unconventional resources-focused DCA module

A new DCA module with unconventional forecasting techniques, such as Arps, Duong, stretched exponential, and power law, is now available in analysis dashboard. All DCA methods can be plotted and compared on the same DCA plot and saved in forecast cases.

Synchronization function for multiple charts

The new synchronization functionality now enables you to set synchronization channels for different charts. For example, zooming on one chart will reflect the same zoom on the other charts.

Faster launch time

OFM software now allows entity-variable data caching for rapidly launching analysis and calculations.

OFM software API to extend workflows with plug-ins

The OFM software API allows the creation of plug-in analysis (plug-in with an associated user interface) and plug-in functions to help you to extend and bring workflows inside OFM software. If you have an Excel macro to perform a specific workflow, you can convert it to an OFM software plug-in and bring it inside the OFM software environment using the API.

Support for additional data sources

OFM software can now connect and read data from Teradata data sources using the dedicated data adapter.

Suitable for

OFM software is used primarily by reservoir engineers and production engineers. It is equally useful in the day-to-day operational arena (where performance is tracked on a continual basis) and for longer term surveillance of a project at multiple levels (completion, well, pattern, reservoir, etc.). Its highly flexible environment allows users in both technical domains to build and customize their own analyses. Sharing best practices effectively across the organization is enhanced even further through the new Data Dictionary and associated Catalog.
