Wog - Well Optimization by Geosteering: a Pilot Software for Cooperative Modeling on Internet

Abstract : IFP has recently started the development of a new data management system named WOG for "Well Optimization by Geosteering". In this project, our aim is to distribute the information through the network so as to share knowledge. The key advantage of this software is to allow visualization for each of the fields involved. Hence, the driller will have the view that he uses currently, the geophysicist will have the type of view that he sees every day, and so one for each specialties. WOG uses three recent developments: 3D Geopilot, EpiSEM-Action and G3Server. 3D Geopilot is software that computes parametric links between the different layers and faults so as to allow future updating during the drilling process. Using the 3D Geopilot, engineers specializing in geology and geophysics could start from classical workstation interpretation information to set up a first version of a multi-discipline Earth model based on the same conceptual Earth model. The EpiSEM-ActionTM project proposes a new approach to ensure the collaboration between Shared Earth Model (SEM) applications on Internet or intranet and the capitalisation of value-added business knowledge. Web services are provided to manage this business knowledge on the Web with optimized security between servers and applications. This enables models for coping with various hypotheses and interpretations to be produced and managed. The G3Server product is a powerful Corba server whose objective is to distribute standardized IFP business objects between Java or C++ applications. The internal model (the IFP communication model) was defined so as to be easily used with Open Spirit and Rescue business data objects. Its role in the WOG project is to distribute data between application components. It can be called by specialized activities and can access Open Spirit servers, Rescue files and IFP proprietary business objects. The domain covered is the well, the reservoir, and seismic information.
