Emerson enhances software to help operators maximize the value of reservoir assets

Emerson Process Management has launched the latest version of its reservoir modeling software, Roxar RMS™. The new version - RMS 2013.1 - comes with enhanced structural modeling tools that acknowledge realistic uncertainties in the data and improve volumetric sensitivities. This makes it faster and easier for geo-modelers to build geological scenarios, investigate the full effects of structural uncertainty, and maximize the value of their reservoir assets.

“Too often in the past reservoir modelers have had to resign themselves to using best case estimates of faults and horizons, with the inherent uncertainty in these interpretations often neglected and thereby underestimating the actual uncertainty in reservoir volumes,” said Kjetil Fagervik, managing director of Emerson’s Roxar Software Solutions. He continues: “With our new version of Roxar RMS and our tightly integrated structural modeling and gridding tools, users will be able to quantify uncertainty more effectively and increase confidence when it comes to crucial decisions on where to drill, what production strategies to adopt, and how to maximize recovery.”

As part of the new enhancements, RMS 2013.1 also sees fault uncertainty tools further integrated with structural modeling and 3D gridding. This enables users to build fault uncertainty models in full and investigate a wide variety of scenarios corresponding to the uncertainty in the input data. In addition, horizon uncertainty modeling is significantly enhanced, allowing users to create horizons and zones based on uncertainty data and information derived from well picks, velocities, seismic travel times and isochores. Uncertainty modeling has also been extended with new parameters added such as the modeling of fault sealing effects and fractures.
