Emerson Process Management today announced the launch of Roxar RMS 2010, the latest release of the reservoir modeling system RMS™ which comes with major improvements across the entire workflow.
Within the Roxar modeling suite, users can build models for any reservoir. They can also estimate reserves, plan wells and simulate past and future production. In this way, they can do everything they need to produce maximum performance from their reservoirs, regardless of geology, location or complexity.
Benefits to users of RMS 2011 include:

? The ability to model beneath and around salt and other complex structures. RMS 2011 supports complex fault modelling that other applications can’t handle and incorporates these models into its advanced 3D gridding engine without simplification. Additional modelling functionalities that come with RMS 2011 include building intrusion objects into structural modelling to better model salt, and a new grid data structure for improved performance, scalability and more flexibility in the grid geometry.

? Enhanced facies modelling tools which will enable the user to rapidly combine the latest 4D seismic surveys into the models to improve the quality of interpretations, structural and property models, simulation models, and well plans. The model can also be the basis for a more quantitative use of 4D seismic data, especially towards history matching with both production data and 4D data.

? New well correlation tools with improved handling for horizontal and vertical well correlations which cross stratigraphic boundaries. RMS 2011 enables the user to split the horizontal well into separate sections so that well data can be inspected in the most practical manner possible, whether True Vertical Thickness (TVT) or True Stratigraphic Thickness (TST). In addition, advanced ghost curve capabilities can mix and match curves. Users can also examine array logs on top of one dimensional well logs, allowing for correlation to take place by taking into account seismic data as well as resistivity logs.

? Fractures are also fully integrated into the RMS 2011 reservoir modelling workflow through a DFN-based (Discrete Fracture Network) model which enables robust, fractured models to be built faster, providing an important tool in tackling the complex, fracture-prone geologies prevalent throughout the world.

? Improved usability and integration features which make RMS 2011 even more accessible and easier to use. Users are able to easily import large 2D or 3D surveys into RMS 2011 and enjoy an optimised working environment with updated data analysis charts, multiple and highly interactive visual displays and the best in graphics technology. For quality control purposes, the user can also produce all the necessary charts and maps to check consistency between the property models and the input data.
