Emerson releases updates to seismic reservoir modelling and simulation software

Published by
Oilfield Technology,

Emerson Automation Solutions has launched the latest version of its reservoir characterisation and modelling software. Through a host of new features and greater workflow integration to support the Big Loop™ solution, Roxar RMS™ 10 provides improvements to the seismic to simulation workflow; new decision-support tools for improved reservoir management; and increased user performance and productivity.

“RMS 10 is all about accelerating field development and ensuring operators’ access to the best possible information for those crucial decisions on where to drill and what production strategies to adopt,” said Kjetil Fagervik, vice president of Roxar Software product development and marketing, Emerson Automation Solutions. He continues: “From accurate volumetric estimations through to building flow simulation models, optimised well planning and the implementation of our Roxar Big Loop solution, RMS 10 delivers on all counts - handling all reservoirs including the most complex plays, and dramatically improving efficiencies and performance throughout the reservoir characterisation and modelling process.”

Key features of RMS 10 include:

  • Strengthening the Seismic to Simulation Workflow. RMS 10 comes with a number of improvements to the powerful reservoir modelling workflow. Seismic interpretation is made stronger with a new Trace Viewer and enhancements to the snap to seismic technology, further supporting geological risk quantification early in the process. There are improvements to both structural and property modelling with a more flexible stratigraphic framework, improved horizon modelling algorithms and a better isochore quality framework – all contributing to a more accurate and complete reservoir model and understanding of the subsurface. There are also enhanced capabilities for building and maintaining flow simulation models.
  • New Decision-Support Tools. RMS 10 provides greater workflow integration to support the Big Loop solution and has versatile reporting tools. This includes improved support for the building of complete flow simulation models; greater integration across different domains; automated, repeatable and traceable well modelling to keep models up to date; and the automated creation of well targets.
  • Productivity & Performance Improvements. RMS 10 provides productivity and performance improvements with increased interoperability and workflow customisation; new functionalities for visualising data; and enhanced well management through its data explorer tool.

RMS 10 has also been designed to maximise the benefits and support the ensemble-based workflows of Emerson’s Big Loop™ solution. Big Loop is an automated workflow that tightly integrates static and dynamic domains so that they are synchronised throughout the field’s lifetime, thereby providing the most comprehensive uncertainty assessment and the best-quantified risk in the reservoir model.
