Emerson's upgraded reservoir engineering suite offering takes automation a step further, slashing cycle times with more accurate forecasts.
Emerson has unveiled its latest integrated reservoir engineering suite offering tools for advanced reservoir management and flow simulation. Roxar Tempest 8.3, part of the firm’s end-to-end exploration & production (E&P) software portfolio, advances automation and focuses on increasing user productivity, for a better understanding of new and established reservoirs.
Tempest 8.3 provides increased compatibility with industry-standard reservoir simulators, enabling users to run third-party simulation datasets, such as ECLIPSE models, with minimal changes, Emerson said. Additionally, algorithmic consistency in the product suite ensures that the volumes and reserves estimates are preserved when using third-party simulation decks with MORE. This compatibility enables the easy embedding of simulation workflows and models within Big Loop, which links static uncertainties and flow parameters to ensure that geologic and geophysical constraints are honored when matching production. The suite also offers easy and interactive creation of simulator regions and the streamlined analysis and export of well-to-well flows.
The ENABLE module within Tempest 8.3 comes with a host of user-driven improvements serving Big Loop, including the ability to select and relaunch a specific simulation, to test out additional settings or investigate the causes that previously led a run to stop.
“This Tempest release reaffirms the central role that reservoir engineering plays in our broad spectrum of products and solutions. Connecting disciplines within customized workflows like Big Loop enables users to obtain reliable estimates of oil in place and future production volumes under a variety of production scenarios,” said Somesh Singh, chief product officer with Exploration & Production Software, Emerson Automation Solutions. “This shortens cycle times while providing more accurate forecasts.”
Roxar Tempest runs on Windows and Linux, and operates alongside Emerson’s reservoir characterization and modeling solution, Roxar RMS. Tempest is an integrated software suite that provides a wide range of reservoir engineering features and is used in hundreds of installations worldwide. All modules can be deployed together or separately within third-party simulation workflows.
