Emerson Process Management has announced the launch of Roxar Tempest™ 7.2. This is the latest version of its integrated reservoir engineering software suite and it can be applied in a wide variety of scenarios such as field appraisal, field optimisation, and brownfield development.
Tempest 7.2 comes with major enhancements to its history matching and uncertainty analysis module Tempest ENABLE that will help oil and gas operators generate accurate production estimates and quantify uncertainty. Tempest 7.2 is the latest commercial output from the Total Uncertainty Management Program developed with Statoil.
“With Tempest 7.2, we have delivered another stage towards our vision of the integrated, ensemble-based, Big Loop solution where innovative uncertainty quantification and greater geological realism can be applied, and risk quantified across the reservoir management lifecycle,” said Kjetil Fagervik, Managing Director of Emerson’s Roxar Software Solutions. “The result will be an integrated seismic to production workflow, improved field development decisions, and better investment returns.”
New features within Tempest 7.2 include the ‘Roxar App Connector’, which allows users to set up a complex, multi-application description of their reservoir.
To take into account the natural but unknown variations in the geological representation of a reservoir, Emerson has expanded its proxy with a stochastic component. Consequently, a realistic assessment of the underlying uncertainty in the production estimates is achieved. While users may not know the precise geology of their reservoir, they will now have access through Tempest 7.2 to a range of reasonable possibilities and can calculate the effect of this range on oil production.
Roxar Tempest 7.2 operates alongside Emerson’s reservoir modelling solution, Roxar RMS.
