Emerson Process Management has released Roxar RMS 2011, the latest version of its reservoir modelling software.

RMS 2011 comes with more new features than any previous RMS version and provides modellers with enhancements to the seismic architecture to allow direct reference between the reservoir models and the 3D and 4D seismic data that the interpretation and modelling is based on.

Key highlights of RMS 2011 include new tools to model complex geologies and incorporate 4D seismic into the workflow; geological well correlation improvements; new fracture modelling capabilities; and usability and integration features that make RMS 2011 even more accessible and easy to use, while at the same time realistically modelling some of the world’s most complex geologies.

RMS 2011 supports complex fault modelling and incorporates these models into its advanced 3D gridding engine without simplification.

Additional modelling functionalities that come with RMS 2011 include building intrusion objects into structural modelling to better model salt and a new grid data structure for improved performance, scalability and more flexibility in the grid geometry.

Enhanced facies modelling tools will enable the user to rapidly combine the latest 4D seismic surveys into the models to improve the quality of interpretations, structural and property models, simulation models and well plans.

The model can also be the basis for a more quantitative use of 4D seismic data, especially towards history matching with both production data and 4D data.

There are also new well-correlation tools with improved handling for horizontal and vertical well correlations that cross stratigraphic boundaries.

RMS 2011 enables the user to split the horizontal well into separate sections so that well data can be inspected in the most practical manner possible, whether True Vertical Thickness (TVT) or True Stratigraphic Thickness (TST).

In addition, advanced ghost curve capabilities can mix and match curves.

Users can also examine array logs on top of one-dimensional well logs, allowing for correlation to take place by taking into account seismic data, as well as resistivity logs.

Fractures are also fully integrated into the RMS 2011 reservoir modelling workflow through a DFN-based (Discrete Fracture Network) model, which enables robust, fractured models to be built faster, providing a tool for tackling complex, fracture-prone geologies.

Improved usability and integration features make RMS 2011 even more accessible and easier to use.

Users are able to easily import large 2D or 3D surveys into RMS 2011 and enjoy an optimised working environment with updated data analysis charts and multiple interactive visual displays.

For quality-control purposes, the user can also produce all the necessary charts and maps to check consistency between the property models and the input data.

Roxar RMS comprises 13 fully integrated software modules, including mapping, reservoir modelling, well planning, reservoir simulation and uncertainty modelling tools.

It operates on Linux 64-bit, Windows XP and the Vista 32 and 64-bit platforms, as well as Windows 7 64-bit.

An RMS 2011 presentation will be taking place during EAGE on 24 May at 3pm to highlight the benefits of the new release.
