CGG has released EarthModel® Builder, a modeling solution that is used to improve efficiency, accuracy and flexibility for more realistic representations of the reservoir.

CGG releases reservoir modeling solution

Part of the Jason suite, EarthModel Builder is a tool for asset teams and service companies to generate multiple first-pass reservoir models containing rock properties. Organizations of all sizes, from international oil and gas companies to small independents, can use the models to optimize their field development and well planning processes.

EarthModel Builder’s user-friendly interface and dynamic capabilities help to create quick models and move projects forward. Extensive quality controls ensure a greater level of accuracy in both conventional and unconventional geological settings.

Integration with CGG’s PowerLog solution offers well analysis for even more insight. Petrophysicists and geologists can compute multiple curves and run a variety of modeling scenarios to better understand their reservoirs.

Asset teams and service companies can also use EarthModel Builder to supplement and leverage their current modeling solutions for which they may hold a limited number of licenses. After quality checking and building quick models to assess the information, companies can move the models into their existing technology for reservoir characterization.

Sophie Zurquiyah, Senior Executive Vice President of CGG’s Geology, Geophysics & Reservoir Division (GGR), said: “With EarthModel Builder, all E&P stakeholders are now able to build the most up-to-date rock property models. This new software offers clients an affordable, exciting and dynamic solution for building and updating models across the life of the field.”

CGG’s GeoSoftware portfolio integrates multiple geoscience disciplines throughout the exploration and development workflow to produce a more realistic model of the reservoir. This software is an additional option available as part of CGG’s easy-to-use suite of advanced tools supporting the seismic interpretation to reservoir optimization workflow. For the oil and gas industry, better seismic and better models drive better drilling decisions, reduce risk, and help achieve a greater return on reservoir assets.
