Petrosys supports a wide range of computing environments. Mapping with Petrosys is a natural way to bring together facts and ideas from a range of disciplines and data sources.
Petrosys’ direct interfaces to many of the specialised applications used by EP professionals ensure that EP teams have better communication more quickly and with lower support and learning overheads than with older or more generic mapping systems.

- Please note that Oracle only certify 11g R2 for RHEL6 and 12c Release 1 for RHEL7. It is strongly recommended you follow Oracle’s platform support guidelines when provisioning a database server on this platform. Note that for Petrosys to run on RHEL6, or above, when connecting to Oracle a number of system packages must be installed, particularly nss-pam-ldapd.
- The 64bit version of the Petrosys application is not supported on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4. Red Enterprise Linux 4 is not supported by the current Petrosys version (17.6). Use version 17.5 or earlier for RHEL4 support.
- From Petrosys version 17.7 onwards, 32bit for both Windows and Linux is no longer supported.
- Petrosys supports RHEL7 from version 17.7 onwards.

- Petrosys running under Microsoft Windows requires a Petrosys ‘SSH’ communication protocol to be configured to access some OpenWorks/SeisWorks data on a Linux server . From version 17.7, Petrosys is able to natively access Openworks R5000.8+ on Windows.
- Petrosys recommends Oracle Database Server 22.214.171.124 or higher. When running on Redhat Enterprise Linux or above you must ensure that all of Oracle’s system library dependencies are installed, particularly nss-pam-ldapd.
- For Oracle Server version 126.96.36.199, or higher, Petrosys recommends clients consider some known hardware compatibility issues on certain Oracle brand hardware due to a serious bug introduced by Oracle in 188.8.131.52 that breaks Spatial functionality. Refer Oracle Bug 11686843.
- For Oracle Server version 184.108.40.206 Petrosys requires patch set 18470311 & 18328186, or use version 220.127.116.11 or above. Note that as always new versions of Oracle should be tested in non-production environments to verify functionality before being rolled out to production servers.
- If the Auto SQL Server Express option in IHS Kingdom V8.5sp2 and higher is used for a project, it is only possible to connect to it while the project is open in IHS Kingdom.
- ‘Paradigm with Epos 4 Data Management’ was last supported in Petrosys version 17.5sp4 , ‘Paradigm 2011 to 2011.2 with Epos 4.1 Data Management’ were last supported in Petrosys version 17.7sp6.
- DUG Insight version 4 has not been tested explicitly. However, it is expected to work at the same level as version 3.
- Paradigm versions older than 15.5 are not supported on Windows 10 or at all from Petrosys PRO 2017.1
- ArcSDE server connection compatibility can be quite complex due to the wide variety of underlying database vendors and versions. Please check with Petrosys support before upgrading your ArcSDE version or database versions.
- Using Oracle 12 and later wallets is supported from version 17.8sp5 and later.
- For GeoGraphix, a 64bit ODBC driver for Sybase is required and it is only possible to connect to a project while it is open in GeoGraphix.
- Oracle 18c is technically supported according to Oracle’s client/server compatibiity matrix, however Petrosys has not yet conducted formal testing against this version of Oracle. Note that as always new versions of Oracle should be tested in non-production environments to verify functionality before being rolled out to production servers.
- Landmark Solutions’ DecisionSpace Geosciences application supported versions depend on the version of OpenWorks being used. For data access via drag and drop see the supported versions of OpenWorks. For the DecisionSpace Geosciences Petrosys installed plugin the supported versions are listed against the DecisionSpace Geosciences line.
Petrosys Hardware Requirements
The Petrosys application has very light minimum system requirements for hardware. Almost any system that can run Windows or Linux will run Petrosys. The optimal requirements will depend on the volume of data and the type of work being done.
Minimum hardware requirements:
|Disk space – Software Application||750MB||800MB|
|Disk space – Data for projects||1GB||1GB|
|Disk space – Operating system temporary area||8GB||8GB|
|Graphics system||Graphics system that supports a complete implementation of OpenGL (any version). However, certain features may not be available depending on the OpenGL version and extensions supported. We recommend OpenGL version 2.0+|
|FlexNet FlexLM License Manager server.<Note: The FlexLM license server is only supported on the set of operating systems that the Petrosys desktop application is supported on>||11.11||11.11|
