Commitment to quality and security
Petrel 2018.2 continues the step change in software beta-testing methodology introduced with Petrel 2013. The Petrel platform architecture tracks and audits beta testing, ensuring that the broad range of capabilities is consistently and comprehensively tested.
In addition, each release follows a strong security assessment process to ensure vulnerabilities are processed appropriately.
Shared earth—critical insight
The Petrel E&P software platform brings disciplines together with best-in-class applied science in an unparalleled productivity environment. This shared earth approach enables companies to standardize workflows from exploration to production—and make more informed decisions with a clear understanding of both opportunities and risks.
Disciplines working together
We have long known that integration is critical. However, integrating at the data level is just the start. Enabling critical insight in complex reservoirs requires the integration of work processes. This allows the capture and preservation of knowledge, from exploration to production—from the petroleum systems modeler to the reservoir engineer and beyond, all contributing to a shared vision of the subsurface. Whether you are working on your first deepwater exploration well or delivering a comprehensive drilling program in a shale play, the Petrel platform enhances multidisciplinary workflows.
Access to best science
Traditionally, applying the right science has meant supporting many disparate applications—isolating the knowledge and disrupting the workflow. The Petrel platform provides deep science across the spectrum—from prestack processing to advanced reservoir modeling—to assisted history matching, and much more. Furthermore, the Ocean software development framework creates advantage by putting the industry’s best science inside the Petrel shared earth model—directly into the hands of your teams.
Increased workflow productivity
As the industry looks to accelerate reserves replacement and boost recovery in difficult reservoirs, increasing productivity is essential. The Petrel platform supports automated, repeatable workflows, to capture best practices and share them across the organization. New data is easily incorporated, keeping the subsurface live and current. Embedded cross-domain uncertainty analysis and optimization workflows enable straightforward testing of parameter sensitivity and scenario analysis. The embedded Studio E&P knowledge environment improves productivity with multiuser database access and collaborative work sessions with team members across the enterprise. The Studio environment lets you capture more than just data—it allows you to store and share the knowledge of how a result was accomplished.
