With brand new modules and numerous enhancements, OpenFlow Suite 2016 is a major release for Beicip-Franlab and its clients. It represents another step forward in the continuous development of our innovative suite of software by focusing on efficiency, user-friendliness and technology, bringing to the market innovations originating from world-class R&D programs conducted by IFPEN in the domains of Oil and Gas exploration, development and production.
The software suite benefits from the OpenFlow platform that offers a consistent user interface and enables advanced workflows across disciplines. The 2016 release features, among other, a new look and feel for a clearer and totally user-defined workspace, as well as new import/export facilities easing data and models exchanges between projects and third-party applications. Many workflows and editors have been enriched with new functionalities and options based on customers’ feedback to enhance both the user experience and study productivity. .
DionisosFlowTM, TemisFlowTM, CougarFlowTM
Explorationists will find within the OpenFlow Suite the most complete suite of applications to understand and model petroleum systems, from forward stratigraphic modeling with DionisosFlow to basin modeling with TemisFlow, both applications being liked to CougarFlow for sensitivity and risk analysis.
DionisosFlow 2016 has been designed to answer the need for more efficiency and reliability. New functionalities are available in pre and post-processing to build better models and many improvements have been brought to the version to enhance the software ergonomics and simulation performances, making DionisosFlow a robust and operational tool for forward stratigraphic modeling.
On its part, TemisFlow 2016 emphasizes its simulator strengths with an improved pressure calculation in several geological contexts and allows the integration of more knowledge and data than ever through a new lithospheric approach for the modeling of complex thermal history often undergone by sedimentary basins. TemisFlow 2016 also answers the need for lightweight and interactive tools with, among others, a new module for drainage area and trap analysis to quickly get an understanding of reservoirs trapping potential.
Finally, CougarFlow 2016 expands uncertainty analysis perspectives with the possibility to define not only scalars but also curves and maps as uncertain, critical flexibility in exploration where uncertainties can be of various orders.
OpenFlow Suite provides advanced solutions for the description of complex or fractured reservoirs.
The multi-disciplinary EasyTrace 2016 1D toolbox brings major changes in the software usability. It covers different applications domains like curves management, graphic settings, log mnemonics at import. As a result, plots are directly as expected, application is more intuitive and users concentrate on analysis rather than customization and benefit from a better productivity.
FracaFlow is the most advanced package available on the market for fractured reservoir characterization, modeling and dynamic calibration. FracaFlow delivers accurate models for the most advanced and demanding dual medium reservoir simulators. This 2016 version offers increased productivity and enhanced ergonomics, in particular Automated Kh Calibration interface has been fully redesigned to work with deviated wells, in a standard FracaFlow analysis style. It brings more data to the multi well calibration tool and reliability to the results. Users are immediately familiar with the interface allowing quicker software learning.
PVTFlowTM, PumaFlowTM, CougarFlowTM
OpenFlow Suite also offers a full suite of applications for the simulation of the most challenging reservoirs. PumaFlow simulator is the main module of this family and his perfectly backed by complementary modules: PVTFlow creates fluid models from laboratory data and CougarFlow increases analysis potential thanks to uncertainty management and assisted history matching functionalities.
Pumaflow is a reservoir simulator with black oil and compositional options compatible with all IOR and EOR processes like fluid injection, chemical EOR and thermal EOR. It allows working indifferently at lab scale, pilot scale, or full field scale bringing to the market a truly multi-scale multi-purpose solution into a single calculator. PumaFlow 2016 enriches again the chemical EOR options with clearer and smarter interactive editors. This version brings in a simulator interface the experience of the EOR Alliance (IFPEN, Beicip-Franlab, Solvay), a major Chemical EOR player. As an example, selected analytical formulas help to fill the numerous tables requested by calculators in a consistent way.
PVTFlow 2016 extends its application domain with more automated complex processes like compositional gradient and Minimum Miscible Pressure. In a concern for simplification, fluid models can be built in a few clicks within a quick and smart workflow, still benefiting from the rigorous engine.
CougarFlow 2016 extends its potential by allowing integration of new dynamic data like water breakthrough time in objective function. Users can weight these major events to speed up the history matching phase.
