MPath™ Well Toolkit now available

Permedia Research Group is pleased to announce the immediate availability of the first release of its Petroleum Systems Well Toolkit. Well Toolkit features a redesigned Well Viewer, and includes the Delta Log R (DlogR) calculator for determining total organic carbon (TOC), as well as a scripting environment for user-defined calculators and extensions.

All consortium members have immediate access to the the new Well Viewer. Well Toolkit sponsors have access to DlogR and the scripting extensions. Both the new Well Viewer and Well Toolkit extensions are available in the latest development build.

RPSEA Selects Project

The Research Partnership to Secure Energy for America (RPSEA) has selected a research project that will be using MPath.

RPSEA announced that nineteen proposals have been selected for negotiations leading to an award under the Unconventional Resources Program focused on increasing the supply of domestic natural gas and other petroleum resources. The projects include Application of Natural Gas Composition to Modeling Communication Within and Filling of Large Tight-Gas-Sand Reservoirs, Rocky Mountains, which is being conducted by the Colorado School of Mines in partnership with The Permedia Research Group, among others.

Colorado School of Mines is using MPath to study the processes by which gas fills the large tight‐gas‐sand reservoirs of the Rocky Mountains and the degree of internal communication in these reservoirs. This research will lead to new models for predicting the top of gas in these reservoirs, the composition of the gas, the validity of basin‐centered gas models and the degree of communication between different stratigraphic levels and different fault compartments within reservoirs.

MPath adds native Gocad support

Permedia has added support for files in Gocad's native ASCII format to MPath.

Creating MPath models from Gocad voxet volumes, or inserting Gocad TSurf surfaces into MPath models as faults is now as simple as selecting the file in a dialog box. Or you can use Gocad wells to verify the goodness of fit of MPath simulation results using Correlation, or to compare properties along multiple well paths using Well Viewer. Visualizing Gocad data in any scene is as simple as dragging the object into the scene in 3D Viewer.
