Geolog 7.4

Expanding the reach of the industry’s leading formation evaluation solution

For close to 30 years, Paradigm® Geolog® has been the industry’s leading solution for advanced formation evaluation and petrophysical analysis.  Scalable, modular and vendor-independent, Geolog is ideal for user groups of all sizes.

Now, with the release of Geolog 7.4, the product’s proven technological capabilities have been extended to the engineering domain, for work on wells that are already deep into production. In addition, a new geomechanics module that helps assess mechanical conditions around the wellbore provides deeper understanding into your reservoir.  
 

Paradigm App Exchange

In conjunction with this release, Paradigm announces the Paradigm App Exchange, for the free exchange of user innovation. The initial offering is Apps created using Geolog Loglan, now available for free submission and download on the Paradigm App Exchange site.

    • Allows users to visualize wellbore mechanicals in conjunction with all other data gathered from the wellbore
    Well integrity
    • An independent means of assessing the mechanical condition of casing in a wellbore, critical to ensuring safe operation
  • Production log interpretation
    • Allows users to process and interpret spinner and fluid tools to identify volumes of fluid produced in their wells
    • Working with this data directly alongside open hole datasets can enhance interpretation and understanding of the producing reservoir

Minimizes drilling costs while ensuring safety

  • A full-function geomechanics module providing a comprehensive series of calculations and interactive tools to assess mechanical conditions around the wellbore
    • Pore Pressure Prediction
      • Independent pre-drill validation of pore pressure within the familiar Geolog environment, providing input for other geomechanics workflows
      • Workflow consolidated into one integrated Loglan, for added efficiency
    • Dynamic and static elastic properties
      • Provide critical input to completions planning
    • Unconfined compressive strength
      • Provides critical input to completions planning and in-situ stress assessment
    • In-situ stress estimation (multiple methods)
      • Provides critical input to wellbore stability workflows
    • Wellbore stability plots
      • Mud window:  Allows drillers to plan safe mud program
      • Stress plot: A rapid, interactive plot to investigate wellbore conditions that could lead to failure
      • Stereonet plot: A rapid, interactive tool to investigate how stable the wellbore will be for any given drilling direction

Fully integrated workflows enhance multi-disciplinary asset teams’ productivity and efficiency

  • New reservoir characterization plots allow petrophysicists and engineers to identify specific flow units within reservoirs and estimate their flow capacity

Extended third-party connectivity allows users to access advanced Paradigm technologies while maintaining value from existing investments in other software platforms
