Emerson launches Roxar RMS 2012 reservoir modelling software

Friday, March 30, 2012

Reservoir modelling software company Emerson (parent company of Roxar) has launched a new version of its reservoir modelling software, called RMS 2012.

The software is expanding further into the geophysics domain, with improved capabilities for seismic inversion, seismic attributes and field planning.

To it can now cover the workflow of seismic interpretation, reservoir simulation, reservoir behaviour predictions, and uncertainty management.

'Accurate predictive reservoir models that can realistically represent the underlying seismic data and that can offer a seamless route from seismic to simulation are absolutely central to efforts to improve oil & gas recovery today," says Kjetil Fagervik, managing director of Emerson's Roxar Software Solutions.

You can use the software to build a rock property model from seismic data, also combining data from well logs.

There are new importing tools for SEG-Y data and fast and accurate visualisation of seismic data sets of any size through interactive opacity control and colour manipulation capabilities.

You can use the software to calculate facies models and the petrophysical properties of the reservoir.

You can produce facies probability cubes automatically in the inversion process.

There is a field planning tool which can be used to create optimal well plans for the fields. This tool can reduce the number of planning iterations and speeds up the planning process, bringing an increased level of control to field planning.

The ability to generate well paths with user defined constraints is particularly applicable to unconventional assets such as SAGD (Steam Assisted Gravity Drainage) and shale gas fields, the company says.

You can import and exporting multiple targets in Comma Separated Values (CSV) format files.
