Q&A
What is Petrel?
A Windows PC software application
intended to aggregate oil reservoir
data from multiple sources.
In summary, it addresses the need
for a single application to support the
Seismic-to-Simulation workflow,
reducing the need or a multitude of
highly specialized tools.
Uses
To interpret seismic data
Perform well correlation
Build reservoir models
Calculate volumes
Produce maps
Etc. simulate
A Geological model?
A computerized representation of portions of the Earths crust(reality).
Hardware and Application Needed:
A PC with a minimum of: For Petrel 64-bit:4GB of RAM; however
16GB of RAM is recommended for optimum performance.(6GB)
For Petrel 64-bit:Microsoft Windows 7,Vista 64 or XP 64
A graphic card compatible with Petrel
A Petrel license and license key
Petrel Seismic to Simulation Software with the latest updates(Petrel
2012.5)
Training datasets




Data
Sets

Setting Units and
Coordinates for a new
project
User Interface
The Favourites pane:
New
Studio Functionality
Favourites pane
has been introduced.
Petrel Interface:
Help Manual:
Search tab simplifies the use of the online
manual
Data importation- Formats, Import(on selection), Import.
Reference project tool:
Filter icons signify the
objects age or presence
in comparison to its
counterpart
QC of imported data is
important
Well section window
Knowledge sharing made
easier.
Enables interactive view of
different windows
simultaneously
Well Top Spreadsheet

a collection of all info
associated with each well
bore.
Well Tops; intersection
points between well
trajectories and stratigraphic
surfaces.
Visualization from a 2D Window vs. a 3D Window
Visualization of the simple grid with edges and horizons toggled
on.
Geometrical Modeling
Use of pre-defined functions to
generate properties.
Geometrical Properties are
3D properties
Created using predefined system
variables.
Important in volume calculations
and in math operations between
petrophysical properties.

Conclusion
Petrel Fundamentals:
Essential for beginners of the Petrel courses
Teaches the elementary usage of Petrel
Wide range of functionality was not introduced,
hence
Basic courses should be taken in order to have in-
depth understanding of the software.
