The Société Nationale des Pétroles du Congo
(SNPC)—the national oil company of the Republic of Congo—needed to
integrate over 50 years of exploration, production, and reservoir data into a
single platform, accessible to its geoscientists through an easily navigable,
web-based front end. It had previously been using an outdated system that
presented a number of challenges: suboptimal visualization capabilities for
logs,awkward administration and access, and integration and maintenance
After meeting with Schlumberger, it became clear that a solution based
around ProSource Front Office and the Studio E&P knowledge environment
would deliver significant process efficiencies.
The proposed workflow would channel SNPC's interpretation project data
from the Petrel E&P software platform and the Techlog wellbore software
platform. The Schlumberger team performed initial system checks and ensured
that suitable configurations and standards were present before upgrading SNPC
hardware to handle the new workflow.
Final installation and testing was then undertaken. The Studio
environment was installed as the project database for the asset team in charge
of interpretations, with ProSource Front Office implemented as the interactive
front-end administration system, and used as the corporate database for all the
departments of the company.
