LONDON – Schlumberger has released the 2014 versions of its software platforms. The programs include Petrel E&P software platform, Techlog wellbore software platform, Studio E&P knowledge environment, and Ocean software development framework.
Petrel 2014 features a new ribbon-based interface design configured in a workflow-driven layout to boost productivity. Key tools are presented in context, enabling a more focused user environment, said Schlumberger. In addition, new “perspectives” help geoscientists or engineers select a display that prioritizes relevant domain technologies and tools. The new interface – tested in partnership with more than 30 Schlumberger customers – has reduced users’ cursor travel by 30% and clicks by 35%, thus enabling an average of 30% more time to be focused on data and workflows, the company said.
Techlog 2014 introduces new modules for rock physics, cement pipe integrity, distributed temperature sensor (DTS) plotting, and shale reservoir evaluation, while bringing disciplines together in a shared wellbore approach. Users can standardize workflows across the hydrocarbon pathway.
Studio 2014 is delivered with the Petrel platform and drives multi-disciplinary collaboration. Users can find data in context, and share and manage this information. New content display tools allow the preview of search results, and indexed Petrel windows are now available.
The 2014 Ocean software development framework release introduces Ocean for Studio. Leveraging the development framework with the Studio platform, data workflows can be created and customers can design their own knowledge management systems.
“E&P investment decisions are increasingly driven by digital models that enable rich analysis of physical data through the application of workflows reflecting industry best practices,” said Uwem Ukpong, president of Schlumberger Information Solutions. “The Schlumberger 2014 software platforms are designed to deliver a productivity and integration step change for multidisciplinary teams working along the entire hydrocarbon pathway – from pore space to production facility.”
