he PetroMod software system is structured in modules, allowing you to create a package tailored to your specific needs.
How to build your own customized PetroMod software system
Configure your 2D/3D PetroMod software system in five steps:
Start with either a 2D or 3D model builder, depending on whether you want to work with 2D data (cross sections) or with 3D data models.
Select the type of pressure temperature simulator—either multi-1D (for fast, quick-look work) or full 2D/3D for the most accurate calculation.
Select the type of kinetics model—either two-component kinetics (oil and gas), which is often used if no direct source rock data is available or for initial screening work, or multicomponent kinetics, which provides accurate petroleum property predictions.
Select the type of petroleum migration simulator, using flow path for fast high-resolution simulations for screening work, invasion percolation for high-resolution simulations (e.g., in locally refined grids), or hybrid for the most accurate method.
Select optional add-on modules to address specific modeling tasks
PetroMod petroleum systems modeling software combines seismic, well, and geological information to model the evolution of a sedimentary basin. The software predicts if, and how, a reservoir has been charged with hydrocarbons, including the source and timing of hydrocarbon generation, migration routes, quantities, and hydrocarbon type in the subsurface or at surface conditions.
Large-scale geologic petroleum systems models (1D, 2D, or 3D) cover areas ranging from a single charge area for a prospect to regional studies of entire basins to multibasin resource assessments. The models are dynamic, which means they provide a complete record of the structural evolution, temperature, and pressure history, as well as the effects on generation, migration, accumulation, and loss of oil and gas in a petroleum system through geologic time. Properties such as gas/oil ratios (GOR) and API gravities can be analyzed, understood, and predicted.
Petroleum systems modeling (PSM) is a vital component of exploration risk assessment—from basin to prospect. It can be applied during all stages of exploration, from frontier basins with no well control, to well-explored areas and charge assessments of single prospects or fields. Even in producing areas, charge risk on a prospect scale is an essential component of a fully integrated risk assessment. The 3D petroleum systems model includes all the key elements of geological risk in exploration (trap, reservoir, charge, seal, and timing of hydrocarbon generation, migration, and loss) and enables rigorous risk analyses.
