Integration of shale work flows is critical to improve the success of shale assets. Schlumberger announced the release of Petrel Shale, a customized user interface and tool set engineered for exploiting shale resources. Petrel Shale has been designed specifically to address the integration challenge from exploration to production. Scalable and straightforward to deploy, Petrel Shale optimizes operations to increase capital efficiency. The Petrel Shale work flow is presented in a user-friendly way to increase productivity in evaluating and developing shale assets. For the first time, geoscientists can seamlessly integrate geological, geophysical, and production data to define sweet spots, automatically plan well locations, and analyze production trends. Customers are able to gain a greater understanding of how production relates to geology by linking the data and disciplines. Acreage is assessed by incorporating published data and comprehensive well-database analysis. Petroleum-systems evaluation and risk tools deliver play analysis and a greater chance of successful mapping. Petrel Shale is easily extended from map- to model-based interpretations. It leverages the Petrel software platform to offer reliability, technology, and innovation in a fit-for-shale solution.
