General Description: The Schlumberger web-site suggests that Petrel “delivers collaborative workflows and integrated operations with seamless technology and streamlined processes” and publish the following benefits:
- Unify Workflows for E&P Teams – seamless integration of geophysics, geology, and reservoir engineering – in the same earth model. Combine the expertise of the entire team in a single, unified system results in unprecedented efficiency and accuracy. With Model-Centric workflows, Petrel eliminates the gaps in traditional systems that require handoffs from one technical domain to the next.
- Manage Risk and Uncertainty – easily test multiple scenarios with Petrel. An integral part of the seismic-to-simulation workflow, the Workflow Editor captures data relationships and parameters, enabling you to perform rapid updates as new data arrives, perform case and run management for detailed simulation history matching or undertake risk and uncertainty analysis during field development planning.
- Enable Knowledge Management and Best Practices – with the Workflow Editor, experts in an area can capture best practices to help others rapidly learn preferred workflows. Ease of use and intuitive workflows mean significantly reduced learning curves for the newest team members without sacrificing access.
Availability: For classroom/lab availability see https://its.mines.edu/campus-computing-labs. Thanks to a generous contribution from Schlumberger, this software can be made available for wide use on campus.
In case of difficulties running the software in a Mines ITS managed lab: Contact ITS via the Mines Help Center. We want the program to be properly installed, licensed and functioning. If you have questions about the use of the program, please contact your instructor, TA or lab manager.
