NAM selects GeoQuest

Shell’s NAM domestic unit has selected GeoQuest as prime contractor for its E&P software.

Nederlandse Aardolie Maatschappij (NAM) B.V., the Dutch Shell/Exxon E&P joint venture has selected GeoQuest’s GeoFrame as the integration platform for subsurface evaluation. Rien Herber, NAM IT manager said "With an integrated workflow based on Shell’s proprietary technology and GeoQuest tools, we aspire to make faster and better exploration and reservoir optimization decisions in anticipation of increased competition.”
Shell’s proprietary software and selected third-party applications will be integrated into the workflow, which will be further enhanced ‘real soon now’ through the interoperability offered by OpenSpirit-enabled applications. Over 250 active NAM projects will be converted from to GeoQuest’s data format and some 100 users will be trained in a 6 month migration project.
