October 28, 2009 at 5:18 am Leave a comment

At the annual SEG meeting in Houston, SMT announced the release of KINGDOM 8.5, which includes the introduction of KINGDOM GeoModeling, the first modular extension of SMT’s KINGDOM Advanced product line announced earlier this year. KINGDOM GeoModeling allows organizations to conduct integrated interpretation and 3D geocellular modeling in a single product. Integrating these two workflows enables interpreters and modelers to share the same workspace during prospect evaluation. This process improvement increases productivity and reduces the time needed to generate and evaluate prospects in more detail and with greater accuracy.

            Commenting on the announcement, Stan Abele, VP of Product Management at SMT, said: “KINGDOM GeoModeling is another example of SMT’s ongoing focus to bring advanced workflows to every desktop. With SMT’s new GeoModeling, generalist interpreters can now do what was previously the domain of only specialists – interpreters can create sealed earth models, conduct volumetric analyses and estimate reserves.”

            KINGDOM GeoModeling incorporates patented 3D gridding technology from JewelSuite, a powerful, easy to use, Windows-based reservoir modeling software package. Unlike older gridding technologies, the second-generation JewelSuite 3D gridding capability allows complex structural environments to be modeled without compromising the integrity and accuracy of the original structural interpretation.  With the incorporation of JewelSuite gridding technology into KINGDOM GeoModeling, SMT now offers best of breed in both interpretation and 3D geocellular modeling in a single, fully integrated product.

            “Using the JewelSuite software, our consulting teams – including  Gaffney, Cline & Associates, RDS, Epic Consulting and GMI – will be better able to provide the most effective integrated solutions for the most complex reservoirs and development options,” said Nathan Meehan, VP Reservoir Technology, Baker Hughes.

            KINGDOM 8.5 has numerous enhancements:

  • KINGDOM Data Management 8.5 – Replaces the current OpenKINGDOM Domain product. Maintains the historical features of OpenKINGDOM while providing a platform for new functionality.
  • Ability to transfer data between KINGDOM projects – Users can easily select data and create project subsets, combine data from multiple projects, and run QC scripts against KINGDOM projects to check for erroneous results and correct them directly in the interface.
  • Ability to save and restore maps and create and apply display templates for all vertical sections.
  • Improvements in the auto tracker and usability enhancements that make the interface more workflow oriented.

            KINGDOM 8.5 is expected to be available in December 2009. Customers who have purchased OpenKINGDOM Domain will receive KINGDOM Data Management as part of their standard maintenance.
