LONDON -- Schlumberger has released its Petrel 2010 software with added risk analysis for exploration. The new release adds a modeling-while-interpreting function, Schlumberger says, which automatically creates a structural framework. The allows for rapid testing of structural uncertainty and for passing a high-integrity structural framework in the model.
Additionally, Petrel 2010 can improve reservoir characterization with enhanced geobody capabilities for better definition of reservoir bodies, and enhanced seismic attribute analysis to better understand lithologies and fracture characterization.
“Until now, most of the effort in exploration workflows has focused on assessing trap and reservoir," said Tony Bowman, president, Schlumberger Information Solutions. "This latest release of Petrel will enable our clients to improve their exploration success by providing tools to systematically analyze risk associated with trap, reservoir, charge, and seal.”
