Shell deploys Jason’s 3DiQ software

Shell is to integrate core reservoir characterization technology from Jason into its global E&P software portfolio.

Shell International Exploration and Production B.V. has selected reservoir characterization technology from Fugro unit Jason Geosystems BV. Jason’s 3DiQ technology will be integrated into Shell’s E&P Software Suite - the Shell Software Suite Portfolio (SSSP) for Exploration and Production. Shell maintains the SSS portfolio centrally and distributes it globally to E&P Operating Units.


Jason’s 3D Integrated Quantitative Reservoir Characterization (3DiQ) algorithms make up the core of Jason’s flagship Geoscience Workbench. Jason claims the 3DiQ software eliminates inconsistencies between geophysical, geological and petrophysical reservoir models. This is said to reduce uncertainty in reservoir parameters such as continuity, geometry, thickness and volumes. Shell has been using the Jason technology in its operating units to ‘de-risk’ field appraisal and development.


Along with the core inversion and modeling algorithms, Shell will deploy Jason’s ‘E-Plus’ front end. E-Plus, a component of the Geoscience Workbench, encapsulates the 3DiQ components and provides support for volume-based analysis and interpretation. E-Plus allows for external data to be rolled into the interpretation workflow and provides 3D visualization and body capture in time or depth, section view, base map.


Jason will be working with Shell to further integrate 3DiQ with the SSS Portfolio, and will be providing training to Shell staff. More from
