London, United Kingdom (PRWEB), 18th February 2010 – Exprodat announces that it will be exhibiting at the ESRI Petroleum User Group Conference in Houston, TX, between February 22nd and 23rd. Visit booth 114 to see how a unique blend of geoscience and GIS expertise allows Exprodat to improve upstream petroleum processes for oil and gas companies by creatively applying GIS technology.
Exploration Analyst is an ArcGIS extension for creating common risk segment maps of basins and play fairways. Multiple input layers from disparate sources (e.g. depositional environment, paleogeography, etc.) can be rapidly assigned numeric risk values to create component risk maps for key play system elements such as reservoir, source and seal, which can then be combined into a common risk segment model. With Exploration Analyst the user can better understand spatial risk distribution and play extents, identify new opportunities and ‘sweet-spots’ and develop play investment strategy. The software also enables geoscientists to evaluate and grade oil and gas acreage opportunities. It can be used to enable petroleum companies to reduce technical uncertainty, better understand portfolio risk, slash technical evaluation cycle times and make better decisions faster, while implementing consistent and auditable exploration processes through time and across assets. With Exploration Analyst the user can integrate multi-disciplinary asset data (e.g. geology, environment, economic, infrastructure), perform basin/play data integration and summation, define ranking criteria and weighting, rank acreage, identify opportunities, perform company analyses and develop portfolio investment strategy.
KBridge converts data between Seismic Micro-Technology’s KINGDOM® and ArcGIS Desktop from ESRI, allowing users to transfer their KINGDOM well, seismic and interpretation data to ArcMap, and vice versa. KBridge is designed to provide a low cost alternative to heavyweight data integration technologies, enabling end-users to take control of data connectivity rather than rely on enterprise level connections. With this streamlined data integration workflow users are able to deploy the powerful spatial analysis capabilities provided by ArcGIS on their KINGDOM project data.
In addition to software, Exprodat provides unique instructor-led oil industry focused ArcGIS training classes to petroleum professionals who want to get the most out ESRI technology. These courses are designed to be as short as possible so that the attendees spend the minimum amount of time away from their ‘day jobs’. The courses are delivered as a combination of presentations, demonstrations, case studies and hands-on exercises.
ESRI’s 2010 Petroleum User Group (PUG) Conference is held at the Houston Marriott Westchase in Houston, Texas, February 22nd – 24th.
ArcGIS is a scalable family of software products comprising a complete geographic information system (GIS) built on industry standards. ArcGIS is used for the creation, management, integration, analysis, display, and dissemination of spatial data. Visualization, editing, and analysis, along with advanced data management, distinguish the ArcGIS software family as the leading GIS software. Much more than a specialized offering for a small niche of specialists, ArcGIS is designed as a scalable system that can be deployed in every organization, from an individual desktop to a globally distributed network of people.
