Emerson supplies reservoir modelling software to KOC

emersonrmsThe software will facilitate the building of more accurate reservoir modelsEmerson Automation has won a new contract to supply its Roxar RMS™ reservoir modelling software to Kuwait Oil Company (KOC), to facilitate the building of more accurate and detailed reservoir models

 Roxar RMS software helps operators accelerate the field development planning cycle by allowing multiple disciplines to collaborate on a common reservoir model. It includes a variety of different modules covering areas such as well correlation, mapping, structural modelling, petrophysical modelling, local model updates, facies modelling, fracture modelling and uncertainty management.

KOC has previously used Roxar RMS software for input in well placing and determining the wellbore trajectory in the most potentially productive parts of the reservoir, as well as reducing the geosteering risk for sidetracked wells.

Abdullah Al-Awadi, senior geologist at KOC, commented, "The structural model, the advanced geostatistical evaluation in terms of gridding and other analyses generated highly accurate results. We are now starting to integrate the seismic date with the static model."

“Our collaboration with KOC increases confidence when it comes to crucial decisions on where to drill, what production strategies to adopt, and how to maximise recovery,” said Ali Ramady, regional sales manager, Middle East & Africa at Emerson Automation Solutions. “We will continue to provide KOC with advanced seismic-to-production management technologies for better workflow integration between the subsurface and surface - a key component of the digital oilfield landscape of the future.”
