Emerson provides Roxar reservoir modeling software to Kuwait Oil Company

November 30, 2016 – Emerson Automation Solutions announced that it has supplied its Roxar RMS reservoir modeling software to Kuwait Oil Company (KOC). The licenses will be used to build more accurate and detailed reservoir models. The contract expands KOC’s adoption of Roxar RMS software, which has provided input to KOC in well placing and determining the wellbore trajectory in the most potentially productive parts of the reservoir as well as reducing the geosteering risk for sidetracked wells.

"I am highly satisfied with the Roxar RMS software which has proved to be extremely useful in development geology and is based on my personal experience of over 10 years working with the software,” said Abdullah Al-Awadi, Senior Geologist at KOC. He continued: "The structural model, the advanced geostatistical evaluation in terms of gridding and others analyses generated accurate results especially on facies and property models. We are now starting to integrate the seismic date with the static model and are finding a lot of flexibility in the workflows and the ability to load any kind of data,"

Roxar RMS software helps operators accelerate the field development planning cycle by allowing multiple disciplines to collaborate on a common reservoir model. The software also facilitates the implementation of the Big Loop solution, an automated workflow that tightly integrates static and dynamic domains to provide accuracy, uncertainty assessment, and risk in the geologic model.

Emerson’s Roxar RMS reservoir modeling software includes a variety of different modules covering well correlation, mapping, structural modeling, petrophysical modeling, local model updates, facies modeling, fracture modeling and uncertainty management.

Kuwait Oil Company was established in 1934. Since its inception, KOC’s activities have included exploration operations, onshore and offshore surveys, drilling of test wells and the development of producing wells in addition to crude and natural gas exploration. In 1975, the Kuwait Government took 100% control over Kuwait Oil Company, and by 1980, the Kuwait Petroleum Corporation was established to bring all state owned oil companies under one entity.
