Prospect to Reservoir Scale Maps

With Petrosys it is easy to produce detailed prospectivity, exploration and reservoir maps to support farm-ins, licensing rounds and daily operations. Maps can be effortlessly updated as the underlying datasets evolve.

I always use Petrosys to make maps…

Coordinate Reference Systems

Designed to recognise the Coordinate Reference Systems (CRS) of data, Petrosys converts spatial knowledge to the CRS of the map that the data are being displayed on. Datasets from multiple CRS can be correctly positioned, allowing basin scale mapping involving multiple seismic surveys and legacy well locations. The Petrosys CRS engine is built on the industry standard EPSG database of geodetic datums and projections, with robust handling of custom CRS.

Versatile Map Management

Using Petrosys map sheet libraries, it is easy to create standard map layouts. When required, the area of interest can be adjusted, rescaled and rotated with a few clicks of the mouse. Flexible map boundary styles support both large format hardcopy maps and compact images for use in PowerPoint and other on screen presentations.

Layer Management

Map data is stored as a series of layers which are easy to edit or re-sequence. Map layers can be grouped by data display types, source coordinate reference system, or manually. A single map fle or the associated layered PDF output can convey the knowledge of all individual horizons or zones in a field, streamlining the management and sharing of maps.

Visually Appealing Maps

A comprehensive suite of cartographic elements is available to help create maps that conform to industry and national standards. Select and create scale bars, title blocks, color bars and North arrows. An intelligent legend builder completes your masterpiece. Clever use of color bars, translucency and raster image overlay result in visually appealing maps. Automatic and manual overpost correction improves legibility in areas of dense well and seismic data.

Establish Mapping Standards

Use the Petrosys map templates to build standard maps across projects and teams within your company. With Petrosys, E&P management can expect a consistent, high standard of map presentation for technical meetings and reports.

Display Data Directly

Display data directly from the most popular E&P applications and data stores – connectivity is the key. Petrosys can connect directly to all E&P data stores which allows for quick and easy display of data without the need to import or reformat. Direct connection reduces data duplication and makes it easy when updating maps.

The key driver was efficiency of output – the ability to generate maps and do it again and again and do it quickly…

Well and Seismic Mapping Tools

Petrosys allows geoscientists familiar with generic GIS workflows to enjoy a step change in their expectations of how quickly and effectively they can display rich well and seismic content in a presentation quality map context. As Petrosys works with a comprehensive understanding of well data, it is easy to post downhole information along well tracks and at surface and bottom hole locations. With seismic data, Petrosys sets the industry standard for high quality seismic base maps.

Interact with Data

A Petrosys display is an active and intelligent mapping canvas. It knows the difference between wells, seismic lines, contours and lease boundaries. For example, clicking on a well gives access to the well header, directional surveys and queries specific to the connected data store, whilst selecting a contour tracks the contour level and provides access to the contour editing tool.

In conjunction with direct connections to popular seismic applications and Petrosys’ established master storage of seismic navigation, Petrosys sets an industry standard for mapping of historical seismic data.

Find and Fix Problems

By displaying the data directly from the source it is possible to quickly and easily identify data management errors such as directional survey problems or coordinate reference system inconsistencies.

Subsurface Map Interpretation

Contours, faults and polygons associated with subsurface features can be traced and edited using geoscience-aware graphical editing tools.

Thematic Mapping

With thematic mapping, GIS features can be differentiated using colors selected based on data attributes. For example, leases can be colored by operator or expiry date and pipelines can be colored based on fluid carried.

Refine the Content

The ability to specify subsets of large datasets and to refine the content of your Petrosys map with the most relevant information, enables you to focus clearly on the resolution of subsurface challenges.

Expose the Subsurface

The 3D Viewer allows grids, wells and seismic surfaces from multiple data sources to be displayed in 3D. Images and Petrosys maps with live third party content can be projected to a horizontal surface or draped on a depth or time grid. With selectable resolution assuring high performance with even the largest grids, the 3D Viewer is an essential tool to monitor the outcomes of surface modeling operations.

Publish

Modern communication builds on many technologies to share and disseminate ideas and interpretation. Petrosys output can be published to a comprehensive range of media including image files such as PNG for use in PowerPoint; PDF, JPEG2000 and GeoTIFF for archiving; large format plotters for hardcopy; and KML and WMS for web enabled mapping.
