Schlumberger and Ikon Science announced an agreement to further develop the existing quantitative seismic interpretation capability in the Petrel E&P software platform. The collaboration will make high-value seismic workflows fully available to customers and allow easy access to advanced reservoir characterization tools.
Bringing key capabilities of the RokDoc® software platform, developed by Ikon Science, into the Petrel platform will enable geoscientists to derive enhanced geologic understanding from seismic data. The new workflows will democratize what was once considered only an undertaking for specialists, enabling all geoscientists and petroleum engineers to use the workflows for prospect or field development.
'Based on this agreement, we will co-develop our existing quantitative seismic interpretation technology offering in a complementary way, while continuing to involve WesternGeco, our seismic acquisition and processing business unit, to make these advanced reservoir characterization workflows accessible to more users,' said Uwem Ukpong, president, Software Integrated Solutions, Schlumberger.
