Do you subscribe to GeoEdges products, or are you considering licensing their map layers for the regions you work in? Now you can integrate GeoEdges with your other content in PetroDE! Easily see geological features and their effect on well and production metrics by integrating your datasets.
Combining GeoEdges information and your preferred source of well and production data, rig activity layers, pipeline layers, land leases, and more has never been easier. PetroDE and GeoEdges are partnering to help you map and analyze geological features for various basins around the world in one fast and collaborative package. Putting your GeoEdges products in context with other geospatial data allows for a holistic approach to understanding regional trends and well performance.
PetroDE / GeoEdges Launchpads can be customized to suit your workflow. The image below shows tiles of GeoEdges map layers for regions on four continents.
PetroDE allows users to show visualizations of IHSM well and production data overlain by various GeoEdges map layers including thermal maturity, isopachs, structural contours, subcrop edges, overpressured zones, shorelines, channels, and more. Read on to find out how.
Thermal Maturity, Shale Member Subcrops, and Structural Contours, Plus a Production Heat Map
This example demonstrates the integration of several GeoEdges map layers in the Bakken horizontal play. The layers shown are Bakken structure (black lines), Bakken thermal maturity boundary (red line) and the Bakken shale member subcrops (various shades of green). The middle member clean sandstone isopach is also shown with the thicknesses shown in the legend. Underneath all these geologic layers is a Peak 90 Day Boevd21 production heat map from the IHSM Production dataset. We see that production does not correspond to where the Bakken middle member clean sandstone is distributed. Instead, the best results are in the deepest portion of the basin where thermal maturity of the shale members is the greatest.
The chart shows the probability of getting a certain value of Peak 90 Production. Clicking on any bar tells you where that group of data is located on the map.
Using GeoEdges Resistivity and Vitrinite Reflectance to Show Potential in the Niobrara
The next example shows 12-month cumulative production (BOEV21) bubbles for horizontal Niobrara wells in the Powder River Basin layered on top of a heat map of Average Resistivity in the Niobrara (generated from resistivity data points picked by GeoEdges). The purple contours are Vitrinite Reflectance in the Niobrara (sourced and contoured by GeoEdges). What may be interpreted here is that the best Niobrara potential resides where thermal maturity ranges between 0.6 and 0.8 Ro and where Resistivity is greater than 20 ohms.
Shorelines and Overpressured Zone together with 24-month Liquid Production
The following map and chart are for the Frontier/Turner Formation. The bubbles are 24-month liquid (oil & condensate) production for Turner horizontal wells. The GeoEdges data on the map are as follows: Red outline is the Turner Formation overpressure zone, the yellow and gold lines are the Turner and Frontier shorelines. An interpretation can be made that production is affected by certain depositional controls of these shorelines and that most of the better wells are within the overpressure zone. Additionally, a scatter plot shows a linear relationship between 3-month and 24-month liquid cumulative production rates.
PetroDE makes it easy to integrate your Geologic data with other data such as your subscription well and production data and then to visualize and analyze it on a map. Our map display and chart tools are invaluable for working unconventional plays. Geologists and engineers quickly collaborate on potential controls on production, and easily qualify the best areas to further investigate and develop in mere minutes. Quit juggling various databases and platforms and let PetroDE improve your workflow by allowing you to look at everything in one place.
