One of the largest independent developers of software-enabled solutions to the global oil and gas industry, Paradigm, will showcase a range of its solutions and services that deliver added value in unconventional resource plays, including coalbed methane (CBM) projects, at this year’s Unconventional Resources Technology Conference (URTeC).
For global oil and gas companies, success in unconventional exploration depends on efficient and economic hydrocarbon extraction. Paradigm software and services “help get the job done quickly, while bringing deeper insight into productive zones”, the company said in a press statement. This is made possible with a deeper understanding of the geologic model and its ability to incorporate all supporting data.
Visitors to the Paradigm booth at URTeC will learn how these solutions provide methods that:
- Detect shale heterogeneities with seismic and electrofacies classification (Stratimagic)
- Predict in-situ stress, brittleness, and total organic carbon (TOC) from seismic data (Paradigm seismic characterization solutions).
- Make seismic data relevant in shale resource plays with Paradigm full-azimuth seismic data fracture characterisation (EarthStudy 360).
- Determine total organic carbon (TOC) from well logs and petrophysical shale analysis (Geolog).
- Optimise well spacing and completion efficiency (multiple solutions).
- Perform geologic correlation and sectioning in a shale resource play (StratEarth).
- Enhance well planning accuracy and reduce drilling uncertainty in unconventionals (Sysdrill).
“URTeC is a unique platform that brings together engineers, geoscientists, land men and asset team members with one common goal – enabling successful unconventional plays,” said Duane Dopkin, executive vice president of geoscience at Paradigm. “At Paradigm, we are focused on providing advanced software solutions to all users across the disciplines of geophysics, geology, and formation evaluation. URTeC attendees will get an inside look at the advanced capabilities of these solutions that help optimise the return on investment in their assets for unconventional reservoir plays.”
URTec takes place in Denver between 25 and 27 August.
