Up­grade to Roxar Tem­pest reser­voir soft­ware

Emer­son Process Man­age­ment has launched Roxar Tem­pest 7.1, the lat­est ver­sion of its in­te­grated reser­voir en­gi­neer­ing soft­ware suite.

The new soft­ware comes with ma­jor en­hance­ments to its un­cer­tainty man­age­ment and reser­voir pre­dic­tion fea­tures within the soft­ware mod­ule Tem­pest En­able – al­low­ing users to cre­ate en­sem­ble-based pre­dic­tion work­flows and bet­ter quan­tify un­cer­tainty in pro­duc­tion forecasts.

Tem­pest 7.1 also comes with sig­nif­i­cant ad­vances to its Tem­pest More reser­voir sim­u­la­tor and Tem­pest View, the pre and post-pro­cess­ing in­ter­face for all Tem­pest mod­ules.

The new in­no­va­tions in Tem­pest En­able are the first com­mer­cial re­sults of the three-year To­tal Un­cer­tainty Man­age­ment pro­gram with lead­ing op­er­a­tor Sta­toil.

They also build on the long-term col­lab­o­ra­tion with the Depart­ment of Math­e­mat­i­cal Sciences at the UK’s Durham Univer­sity on the de­vel­op­ment of sta­tis­ti­cal al­go­rithms.

“Gen­er­at­ing ac­cu­rate fu­ture pro­duc­tion es­ti­mates, quan­ti­fy­ing un­cer­tainty, and min­i­miz­ing fi­nan­cial risk rep­re­sent three of the in­dus­try’s great­est chal­lenges,” said Kjetil Fagervik, man­ag­ing di­rec­tor of Emer­son’s Roxar Soft­ware So­lu­tions.

“Our new ver­sion of Tem­pest meets th­ese chal­lenges head-on, pro­vid­ing users with the nec­es­sary sta­tis­ti­cal rigor and ca­pa­bil­i­ties to gen­er­ate ac­cu­rate and re­al­is­tic pro­duc­tion sce­nar­ios, test mul­ti­ple re­al­iza­tions, and bet­ter quan­tify uncer­tain­ties on vol­umes and cu­mu­la­tive pro­duc­tion.

“We were al­ways con­fi­dent that the To­tal Un­cer­tainty Man­age­ment pro­gram with Sta­toil would de­liver strong com­mer­cial ben­e­fits and in Tem­pest 7.1 we are start­ing to see the re­sults.”

Tem­pest En­able has in­cor­po­rated the lat­est re­search from Sta­toil and Durham Univer­sity to en­hance its “proxy” based as­sisted his­tory match­ing and pre­dic­tion work­flows, im­prov­ing ac­cu­racy and ef­fi­ciency.

Now it is pos­si­ble to sam­ple the re­sponse sur­face to gen­er­ate an en­sem­ble of runs to give a di­rect sta­tis­ti­cal es­ti­mate of pro­duc­tion un­cer­tainty.

In this way, reser­voir en­gi­neers will have a much clearer over­view of pre­dic­tion vari­a­tions, can iden­tify spe­cific runs for fur­ther eco­nomic eval­u­a­tion, and gen­er­ate more ac­cu­rate and re­al­is­tic pro­duc­tion sce­nar­ios for risk man­age­ment.

Tem­pest En­able can be ap­plied in a wide va­ri­ety of sce­nar­ios in­clud­ing field ap­praisal, brown­field de­vel­op­ment, op­ti­miza­tion, and mod­el­ling ge­o­log­i­cal un­cer­tainty.

Tem­pest En­able also comes with a new op­tion al­low­ing highly cost-ef­fec­tive mul­ti­ple re­al­iza­tion stud­ies when used in tan­dem with the Tem­pest More reser­voir sim­u­la­tor.
