Next Big Step For Reservoir Modeling

Next Big Step For Reservoir Modeling

For the first time, operators and drillers can leverage predictive computational software to assess relative permeability, which is used to accurately and efficiently assess reservoir output and rock formations. As a result, reservoir analysis time is reduced from up to 12 months to just a few days or weeks. David Freed, vice president of Exa Corp.’s oil and gas division, called the technology a huge disruption in the way downhill rock formations are valuated and how wells are drilled.
