Better understand reservoir characterization with SAS® Analytics
In today’s economic climate, oil fields are extremely valuable assets that have to be monitored and managed very carefully. Now more than ever, oil and gas companies, whose stock price is directly affected by their reserves and potential reserve exploitation, need a way to estimate those reserves with as much accuracy and reliability as possible.
At the heart of this process is improved reservoir characterization and flow modeling based on geostatistical analysis. With SAS Analytics, you can make reserves-exploitation decisions more quickly and reliably.
Because exploratory data analysis (EDA) and data integration, aggregation and management are keystones to robust and effective reservoir characterization projects, it is also imperative to automate EDA. SAS helps ensure consistency across silos and enables geoscientists to perform deterministic and interpretive assignments without being encumbered with data preparation.
How SAS® can help
SAS delivers a multitier solution to help you take advantage of your existing GGRE data and improve reserves exploitation. Based on award-winning analytics, the solution delivers:
Exploratory data analysis: Scrutinize data across all upstream domains and integrate cleansed data from geophysics, geology and reservoir engineering.
Spatial modeling: Generate spatial models or variograms.
Uncertainty analysis: Incorporate data from various databases and other niche market applications through an OpenSpirit framework.
Optimized data portfolio: Identify an optimum plan for all of your resource data, such as well analysis, reserves evaluation, and quantification and qualification of risk and uncertainty.
