Permedia™ Viewers Software

Well Viewer

Well Viewer is an easy-to-use tool for viewing data against depth. Using Well Viewer, you can open any supported well format and view against against other wells, observed data or data extracted from meshes and volumes.

See your data in context

Well Viewer features enhanced support for a variety of data. Drag and drop any map into Well Viewer to display markers at the intersection point with the well. Drop in a seismic volume to extract values along the well path. Drop in any basin modeling mesh to extract mesh zones and properties. Drop in curves or tables to see calibration or geochemistry data plotted as traces alongside your well data.

Well Viewer also leverages Permedia™ software's extensive data support – load data from basin modeling packages including Permedia, PetroMod, Temis and Trinity software; all major map and well formats; and reservoir data via Gocad objects, and Eclipse, RMS and VIP grids.

Fully interactive

Launch Data Explorer from Well Viewer to create cross plots and summary statistics for the extracted well data. Select points in the cross plot to highlight the data as a marker in Well Viewer. Views are synchronized between Data Explorer, Well Viewer and 3D Viewer – open 3D Viewer with your volume, mesh, map and well data and select points to create markers in Well Viewer.

Permedia Petroleum Systems 1D Software

Permedia Petroleum Systems 1D software is an easy-to-use 1D basin modeling and wireline processing toolkit. Use the software to model sediment maturities, heat flow, compaction, source rock potential and any number of derived properties based on your own workflows. Most 1D packages start with a spreadsheet entry of well information. With Permedia Petroleum Systems 1D software you can also start with actual well data, allowing you to perform studies in the context of both the well's spatial positioning and wireline data collected on the well. Create full 1D basin models from a structural framework with a single click.

Powerful calculators

Permedia Petroleum Systems 1D software includes specialized modules for evaluating well and wireline data.

  • DlogR - based on Passey, Q. R., et al. (A Practical Model For Organic Richness From Porosity and Resistivity Logs, AAPG Bull., Dec. 1990), DlogR calculates present-day TOC from a new variable – dlogr – and a level of maturity (LOM). The dlogr variable is calculated from an equation that includes sonic, resistivity and their respective baselines. As both sonic and resistivity tend to drift with depth, the baselines need to be re-adjusted at periodic intervals in the well. Using Well Viewer and DlogR, you can adjust the baselines and immediately see their impact on the results. By adding horizontal breaks throughout the well, you can perform independent baseline adjustment for different regions of the well. Additionally, DlogR uses an interactive gamma ray cutoff to limit the calculations to regions of interest.
  • ShaleQuant - from Newcastle University, ShaleQuant estimates clay content, grain density (thus porosity) and present-day TOC from standard wireline log data (gamma, resistivity, sonic, density, and calliper). (Requires separate ShaleQuant license.)
  • Gas-while-Drilling - provides a dashboard of key indices such as dryness, wetness, balance ratio and butane index.
  • Source Rock Assessment - quickly assess source rock potential based on data in wells or other data tables. Source Rock Assessment plots key source variables such as TOC, HI, OI and Ro. Each well's data is color coded for easy comparison.

Unlimited flexibility

Use Permedia Petroleum Systems 1D software's equation and scripting support to create any number of traces on the fly based on existing traces, or other data added to the scene. Use the Trace Calculator to quickly calculate new traces from existing traces using equations.

For more complicated equations or to use external data, lookup tables or other types of data, use scripts to add custom calculators, without the need for any additional tools. The scripting engine is based on Qt Script, a derived form of the Javascript programming language.
