RSI Announces Step-Change Development of it’s Norwegian Rock Physics Atlas

3 April 2017

In co-operation with a Major E&P Co., RSI has commenced a major upgrade of its successful rock physics atlas comprising 244 wells from the Norwegian Sea and the Norwegian North Sea.

The work will involve comprehensive conditioning of log data for quantitative interpretation purposes, petrophysical analysis and rock physics modelling. Reservoir zones to be modelled include formations of Cretaceous, Jurassic and Triassic age.

In addition, all wells will be loaded into RSI’s unique rockAVO® browser, to create the first fully interactive rock physics atlas products in the Norwegian Sea & North Sea – enabling explorationists to see in real-time the effects on synthetic seismic signatures of changing lithology, fluid & porosity parameters.

Available to the industry on a non-exclusive license basis, the first phase of the new atlas will be available for delivery in May 2017 in-time for APA 2017 round.

Dr. Anthony Greer, CEO and Chairman of RSI stated:

“We are delighted that RSI has been selected for this project. It demonstrates recognition of RSI’s significant experience in the region.”
