Emerson’s Interactive Reservoir Modeling Software Updated to Enable Better Decision-making in Less Time
Roxar RMS 11 includes new facies modeling tools for channelized reservoirs, an improved user experience for oil and gas operators and new plug-in framework for future web and cloud-based collaboration
STAVANGER, NORWAY – Emerson has launched RoxarTM RMS 11, the latest version of its reservoir characterization software. The software includes a powerful set of tools for developing smarter and more interactive reservoir modeling, facies modeling and unified tools for channelized reservoirs and region definition, and further strengthens Emerson’s end-to-end exploration and production (E&P) software portfolio.
The suite also comes with a new plug-in technology designed to ensure that RMS 11 is ideally placed for future web and cloud-enabled workflows and remains one of the most open and flexible reservoir characterization solutions in the industry today.
“Roxar RMS 11 is all about the users - enabling them to work smarter and get the reservoir modeling results and decision-making intelligence they need in less time,” said Kjetil Fagervik, vice president of Roxar software product development and marketing, Emerson Automation Solutions. “In putting innovation at the heart of the reservoir modeling workflow, users can look forward to a fully open, highly automated interactive reservoir modeling solution, leading to better and faster decisions and the very best information for future drilling, production and field development strategies.”
Key features of Roxar RMS 11 include:
- A new intuitive graphical user interface for the facies modeling of channelized reservoirs as well as smarter algorithms, less iterations and more flexible geometries - making well conditioning easier to achieve and delivering improved results in less time. RMS 11 also includes new tools to control volume fractions when modeling facies in facies associations.
- Unified and integrated concepts for describing and defining regions, geometries and attributes in structural and grid models. Users can incorporate a combination of region geometries and attributes in modeling - for instance in map generation, volumetrics and flow-model building. The result is increased automation in multi-realization workflows and an enhanced user experience.
- An improved user experience including a more flexible and faster data tree; new navigation and visualization editing tools to Emerson’s Model-Driven Interpretation (MDI) tools; a new well event creation job that simplifies the generation of well data for flow simulations; and extended user-control in the generation of multi-segmented well data for flow simulations.
- A new technology plug-in that extends RMS 11’s functionality and positions it for future web and cloud-enabled workflows; enhancements to the Roxar Application Programing Interface (API) that allows operators to integrate their own intellectual property into reservoir modeling workflows; extensions to PetrelTM I/O tools; and new features to improve data transfer between Roxar RMS and flow simulators.
Emerson’s Roxar RMS reservoir modeling software is a geosciences and reservoir engineering platform for seismic interpretation, well log interpretation and correlation, mapping, geomodeling, gridding and flow simulation. The software enables operators to integrate their data in one place and capture and propagate uncertainties across their workflows.
