Schlumberger releases 2014 software platforms

Schlumberger has announced the release of the 2014 versions of its industry leading software platforms. The new software drives multidisciplinary integration, collaboration and productivity.


The Petrel* E&P software platform, Techlog* wellbore software platform, Studio* E&P knowledge environment and Ocean* software development framework enhance multidisciplinary integration, collaboration and productivity.

“E&P investment decisions are increasingly driven by digital models that enable rich analysis of physical data through the application of workflows reflecting industry best practices,” said Uwem Ukpong, president, Schlumberger Information Solutions. “The Schlumberger 2014 software platforms are designed to deliver a productivity and integration step change for multidisciplinary teams working along the entire hydrocarbon pathway—from pore space to production facility.”

Increased Productivity with Petrel

Petrel 2014 features a new ribbon-based interface design configured in a logical, workflow-driven layout to boost productivity. Key tools are presented in context, enabling a more focused user environment. In addition, new ‘perspectives’ help geoscientists or engineers select a particular display that prioritizes relevant domain technologies and tools.

The new interface—tested in partnership with more than 30 Schlumberger customers—has reduced users’ cursor travel by 30% and clicks by 35%, thus enabling an average of 30% more time to be focused on data and workflows.

Multidisciplinary Integration with Techlog, Studio and Ocean

Techlog 2014 introduces new modules for rock physics, cement pipe integrity, distributed temperature sensor (DTS) plotting and shale reservoir evaluation while bringing disciplines together in a shared wellbore approach. Customers can now standardize workflows across the hydrocarbon pathway—supporting their ability to make more informed decisions with a clear understanding of both opportunities and risks.

Studio 2014 is delivered with the Petrel platform and drives multidisciplinary collaboration. Users can find data in context, and optimally share and manage this information. New content display tools allow the preview of search results, and indexed Petrel windows are now available.

The 2014 Ocean software development framework release introduces Ocean for Studio. Leveraging the development framework with the Studio platform, best-in-class data workflows can be created and customers can design their own knowledge management systems.
