Shared earth—critical insight

The Petrel E&P software platform brings disciplines together with best-in-class applied
science in an unparalleled productivity environment. This shared earth approach enables
companies to standardize workflows from exploration to production—and make more
informed decisions with a clear understanding of both opportunities and risks.

Disciplines working together

We have long known that integration is critical. However, integrating at the data level is
just the start. Enabling critical insight in complex reservoirs requires the integration
of work processes. This 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, the Petrel platform enhances multidisciplinary

Access to best science

Traditionally, applying the right science has meant supporting many disparate
applications—isolating the knowledge and disrupting the workflow. The Petrel platform
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

As the industry looks to accelerate reserves replacement and boost recovery in difficult
reservoirs, increasing productivity is essential. The Petrel platform 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 environment improves productivity with multiuser database access and
collaborative work sessions with team members across the enterprise. The Studio
environment lets you capture more than just data—it allows you to store and share the
knowledge of how a result was accomplished.

The Petrel platform is now available in the DELFI cognitive E&P environment

New insights can be gained through the utilization of the secure, cloud-based
environment as increased accessibility and flexibility to more science in the Petrel
