YSU foundation gets software grant
The Youngstown State University Research Foundation was awarded a software package valued at $14 million from Schlumberger – a worldwide provider of technology for reservoir characterization, drilling, production and processing to the oil and gas industry – that will give students hands-on experience with the tools used by exploration companies throughout the world.
The renewable software grant includes access to the Petrel E&P software and Techlog wellbore software platforms; PetroMod petroleum systems modeling software; and GeoX exploration risk, resource and value assessment software, which will be used for teaching and research.
Techlog provides a means for interpreting geophysical well-log data for individual oil and gas wells and for combining results from multiple wells to construct a play or basinwide model to better understand reservoir behavior and assist in targeting areas of interest for future exploration through 3-D or 4-D visualization.
