Kuwait Oil increases use of Roxar reservoir software

Offshore staff

DUBAI, UAEEmerson Automation Solutions has supplied its Roxar RMS reservoir modeling software to Kuwait Oil Co. (KOC).

The new contract expands KOC’s adoption of previously purchased Roxar RMS software, which has assisted well placement and determining wellbore trajectory as well as reducing the geosteering risk for side tracked wells.

Abdullah Al-Awadi, senior geologist at KOC, said: “The structural model, the advanced geostatistical evaluation in terms of gridding and others analyses generated highly accurate results especially on facies and property models.

“We are now starting to integrate the seismic data with the static model and are finding a lot of flexibility in the workflows and the ability to load any kind of data.”

Roxar RMS software is said to help operators accelerate the field development planning cycle by allowing multiple disciplines to collaborate on a common reservoir model.

It is also said to facilitate implementation of the Big Loop solution, an automated workflow that tightly integrates static and dynamic domains to improve accuracy and risk quantification in the geologic model.
