Emerson updates reservoir modeling, simulation software

Offshore staff

STAVANGER, Norway – Emerson Automation Solutions has launched the latest version of its reservoir characterization and modeling software. Roxar’s RMS 10 provides improvements to the seismic to simulation workflow; new decision-support tools for improved reservoir management; and increased user performance and productivity.

It has also been designed to maximize the benefits and support the ensemble-based workflows of Emerson’s Big Loop solution. Big Loop is an automated workflow that integrates static and dynamic domains so that they are synchronized throughout the field’s lifetime.

RMS 10 comes with improvements to the reservoir modeling workflow. Seismic interpretation is said to be 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 modeling with a more flexible stratigraphic framework, improved horizon modeling algorithms and a better isochore quality framework. There are also enhanced capabilities for building and maintaining flow simulation models. 

In addition, the company said the software 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 modeling to keep models up to date; and the automated creation of well targets. 

RMS 10 also aims to provide productivity and performance improvements with increased interoperability and workflow customization; new functionalities for visualizing data; and enhanced well management through its data explorer tool.
