Chevron Chooses Schlumberger Software

Schlumberger announced today that Chevron has selected Petrel seismic-to-simulation software as one of its next generation interpretation and earth modeling frameworks. Chevron business units around the world will now have Petrel software available for integrating geology and geophysics workflows.

Using Petrel software, Chevron will develop and deploy proprietary geological and geophysical workflows in addition to standardizing processes. With Petrel, all workflow processes support a unified earth model for improved end-user productivity and better decisions in tight timeframes with reduced uncertainty.

"Chevron required a solution that allowed their end users to easily adopt new proprietary technology for improved reservoir characterization," said Olivier Le Peuch, president, Schlumberger Information Solution. "Petrel has the ability to absorb new technology plug-ins developed using the Ocean application development framework."

Chevron and Schlumberger are developing the next generation reservoir simulator, Intersect. The selection of Petrel as one of the next generation solutions complements this development and will in the future enhance seismic-to-simulation workflows.
