Arctic Directory: Schlumberger releases new Petrel software

Schlumberger said May 18 that it has released its Petrel 2010 software, which offers powerful new capabilities providing more comprehensive risk analysis for exploration workflows. “Until now, most of the effort in exploration workflows has focused on assessing trap and reservoir. This latest release of Petrel will enable our clients to improve their exploration success by providing tools to systematically analyze their risk associated with trap, reservoir, charge and seal,” said Tony Bowman, president, Schlumberger Information Solutions. To more effectively define trap, Petrel 2010 adds the modeling-while-interpreting functionality to automatically create a structural framework while interpreting. This capability allows geoscientists to rapidly test structural uncertainty and pass a high integrity structural framework directly into the modeling realm. With Petrel 2010 the knowledge of the interpreter is preserved in modeling workflows, and interpreters and modelers can easily iterate to refine velocity and property models. Additional capabilities enabling improved reservoir characterization include enhanced geobody capabilities facilitating better definition of reservoir bodies, and enhanced seismic attribute analysis to better understand lithologies and fracture characterization.
