Roxar Launches EnABLE 2.3

September 22, 2009 at 1:31 am Leave a comment

Roxar, an upstream technology provider and part of Emerson Process Management, announced the latest version of its EnABLE™ history matching and uncertainty estimation software solution. Using an advanced statistical framework and proxy model, based on conventional reservoir simulations, EnABLE 2.3 provides E&P companies with a rapid understanding of production behavior and the creation of robust uncertainty forecasts.

            In EnABLE 2.3, simplified workflows, new and improved diagnostics, statistical engine advances and better interfaces with reservoir simulators will all help operators estimate technical and economic uncertainty within their reservoirs even more accurately and comprehensively than previously. It can help reservoir engineers perform a quick “what-if” scenario analysis, resulting in a better understanding of the reservoir and more flexible long-term plans. When used alongside Roxar’s reservoir modeling application, RMS™ and reservoir simulation tool, Tempest™, EnABLE history matches numerous geological scenarios to create simulation models that are fully consistent with their underlying geological interpretation.

            Ordin Husa, Managing Director of Roxar Software Solutions, said: “EnABLE 2.3 is a new milestone in uncertainty quantification and history matching for operators. By performing assisted history matching and production forecasting using EnABLE 2.3, optimum bid valuations, new field development and operational plans can all be identified within the context of reservoir uncertainty.”

            Designed for operators wishing to accelerate the history matching process, optimize their plans, and gain a more accurate understanding of production ranges, EnABLE speeds up existing simulation projects considerably (up to a factor of four) through assisted history matching by intelligently updating the parameters that you would like to modify, submitting simulation runs to your reservoir simulator, and reading the results of the simulation. Each simulation run is used to build a statistical proxy model that is used to get multiple history matches and production forecasts more quickly.

            Highlights of the new version include:

  • Improved Ease of Use – Simplified workflows, workflow diagram and navigation tools;
  • Additional Diagnostics Capabilities – Makes the history matching process more efficient;
  • Estimator Analyzer – Performs quick “what-if” analyses or selects a representative uncertainty model within a consistent, interactive module, without having to run a time consuming simulation model;
  • Statistical Engine Enhancements – Improves the way EnABLE approximates the reservoir simulation model and handles discrete geological models; 
  • New and Improved Reservoir Simulator Interfaces – Now include FrontSim, Nexus, PBRS and Acres, in addition to reading Tempest™ and Eclipse binary files, making the process faster and avoiding memory storage issues; and
  • Improved Infrastructure – Easy-to-use installation tool works in both Windows and LINUX environments.

In addition, the licensing of EnABLE has now migrated to the same licensing system as Roxar’s other products.
