Petrel subsurface software

Enable discipline experts to work together and make the best possible decisions from exploration to production


Shared Earth - Critical Insight

Petrel™ subsurface software is available on-premise and in the Delfi digital platform, for geoscientists and engineers to analyze subsurface data from exploration to production, enabling them to create a shared vision of the reservoir. This shared earth approach empowers companies to standardize workflows across E&P and make more informed decisions with a clear understanding of both opportunities and risks.

Dataset developed by the Nederlandse Aardolie Maatschappij ) and the Dutch research infrastructure of solid earth sciences (NAM 2020).
  • Deep science across the spectrum of subsurface domains
  • Multi-disciplinary integration
  • Subsurface characterization workflows
  • Conventional, and unconventional workflows
  • Energy transition applications

Disciplines working together
Integration at the data level is the foundation for enabling multi-discipline integration. This integration allows the capture and preservation of knowledge, from exploration to production—from the petroleum systems modeler to the reservoir engineer and beyond, all contributing to a shared vision of the subsurface. Whether you are working on your first deepwater exploration well or delivering a comprehensive drilling program in a shale play, Petrel subsurface software enhances multidisciplinary workflows.

Access to best science
Traditionally, applying the right science has meant supporting many disparate applications—isolating the knowledge and disrupting the workflow. Petrel; provides deep science across the spectrum—from prestack processing to advanced reservoir modeling—to assisted history matching, and much more. Furthermore, the Ocean software development framework creates advantage by putting the industry’s best science inside the Petrel shared earth model—directly into the hands of your teams.

Increased workflow productivity
In an increasingly volatile industry climate productivity is key. Petrel subsurface software supports automated, repeatable workflows, to capture best practices and share them across the organization. New data is easily incorporated, keeping the subsurface live and current. Embedded cross-domain uncertainty analysis and optimization workflows enable straightforward testing of parameter sensitivity and scenario analysis.

The embedded Studio E&P knowledge software improves productivity with multiuser database access and collaborative work sessions with team members across the enterprise. Studio lets you capture more than just data—it allows you to store and share the knowledge of how a result was accomplished.
