New Software Release

PetroMod 2020.1 Now Available

Friday, 24 April 2020

Product overview

PetroMod petroleum systems modeling software combines seismic, well, and geological information to model the evolution of a sedimentary basin. PetroMod software will predict if, and how, a reservoir has been charged with hydrocarbons, including the source and timing of hydrocarbon generation, migration routes, quantities, and hydrocarbon type in the subsurface or at surface conditions.

PetroMod software is the most advanced commercially available oil and gas migration modeling technology and the only commercial system with fully PVT-controlled modeling of ncomponent 3-phase relationships during the entire migration process. Multiple simulation methods, i.e., Darcy, flow path (ray tracing), invasion percolation (IP), and the PetroMod software hybrid Darcy-flow path-IP simulator, can be used with the same data models. The 2D and 3D migration modeling technology uses flash calculations throughout the entire model and its geological history. This delivers an improved understanding and prediction of petroleum properties and oil versus gas probability assessments.

In Europe and North America, PetroMod 2020.1 is now available in the DELFI cognitive E&P environment as part of the Petrotechnical Suite.

Release details

Key features in this release:

PetroMod 2020.1 combines a state-of-the-art user interface with high-simulation performance that enables you to perform sophisticated analyses of the dynamic temperature, pressure, and migration history of complex geological systems in a fast and intuitive, process-focused workflow. The unification of the 2D and 3D model builder and viewer capabilities allow a fast switch between 2D and 3D model setup and analyses, saving time and costs.

2D and 3D viewers:

  • Enable multiselection and cumulative reporting of Accumulations
  • Write cumulative accumulation compositions to PetroFlash

Kinetics Editor:

  • Enable API/GOR curves in Test tab
  • Enable new standard kinetics (Baur, 2019)
  • Write compositions to PetroFlash from Test tab


  • Access new demo-scripts including detailed documentation


PetroMod 2020.1 is suitable for geologists and geophysicists involved in basin analysis and integrated petroleum systems modeling and simulation.
