Oil companies currently analyze a wide array of image data types and formats when trying to understand the physical characteristics of reservoir rock. By learning how those characteristics relate to the potential value of a reservoir, geoscientists can then relate those observations to the production techniques required to optimize that value. Information extracted from these disparate sources can now be managed digitally with PerGeos software via a collaborative workspace.
PerGeos software offers a flexible, multi-disciplinary, modular architecture that supports the exchange of information and rock statistics between geologists, petrophysicists, and core analysts. Such collaboration facilitates the creation and sharing of a common rock model much faster than with traditional core analysis methods.
In addition to the standard, built-in, automated image processing workflows, PerGeos software offers a suite of applications that provide a customizable user experience. Users can select from the following add-ons:
- Core Profile: A powerful, whole-core data application that enables co-visualization of whole-core CT, core photography, and petrophysical logs in a single workspace. Core Profile also creates virtual logs based on whole-core CT data for further calibration and communication of how changes in rocktype impact how petrophysical properties are measured down-hole.
- Petrophysics: A suite of models for rock property analysis and simulations to derive measurements such as absolute permeability, Archie m (from formation factor F), thermal properties, and MICP saturation curve simulation.
- Pore Statistics: An application that contains a straightforward operation to extract a pore network model from a segmented 3D dataset (FIB-SEM or microCT). The application includes automated workflows to quantify 2-phase and 3-phase fluid storage.
