Oilfield Data Manager by Senergy

Thursday, August 29, 2013

Senergy's Oilfield Data Manager is proving a useful tool to help geologists work with well data. Michelle Hollerbach Silva explained how it works.

She was speaking at the April 2013 Digital Energy Journal conference in Stavanger ''Improving decision making with subsurface data.''

It can pull the data from drilling reports, production data and geological interpretations.

Users can search for the data they need with a map interface, selecting the region on the map they want data for.

It enables geologists to view all the different forms of geological well data to make a better interpretation, or see all of the wells data from a field or basin.

Companies use it both as a corporate database (to store data permanently), and to work on the data, Ms Silva explained.

The software can work with production data, so geologists can see how the wells are producing.

The software runs on Windows, with the data stored in an underlying database (Oracle or Microsoft Access).

You can have several different databases covering one area, or put tens of thousands of wells in one database.

The information uses geographical co-ordinates to reference the well locations.

It can incorporate core data, drilling structural data, and include stratigraphic images.

You can incorporate data out of Petrel.

You can link the database to external seismic data sources.

Some ODM users also use Senergy''s ''Interactive Petrophysics'' (IP) software for their petrophysics interpretation, and Petrel for subsurface interpretation, so they have all 3 applications on the go together, she said.

The software has tools to create charts, using data available in a specific area.

Many ODM users are showing a growing interest in stratigraphic awareness, or adding into the data the geological time they think a certain layer was deposited.

You can put together presentations showing how you think the whole oilfield works.

You can draw ''bubblemaps,'' where you draw a bubble around a zone and then interrogate the data in that zone. For example if there is any gas production from a group of wells.

You can also create well books automatically, which give you a pdf file or spread sheet with all the available information about a well.

You can use it for quality control of production data, because it is easy to spot areas your production data is incorrect.
