SAS upstream business intelligence for Total

Total has built a reservoir management decision support system with SAS’ Intelligence Platform.

SAS Institute is moving back into the oil and gas vertical, with Total an early adopter of its new SAS Upstream statistical package. The Upstream offering is built around the SAS Release 9 Intelligence Platform incorporating data quality, data mining and process intelligence solutions.


Jean-Paul Valois, reservoir evaluation manager with Total said, ‘We needed to implement quick, in-depth reservoir management studies to accelerate the evaluation of mature fields. We engineered our reservoir management application with SAS which helped us speed the decision making process.’


SAS lets companies build a logical model integrating data from simulations, process, and equipment at multiple sites. Users can monitor performance, identify key issues and navigate hierarchical views of data.


SAS energy boss Horia Orenstein added, ‘Oil and gas companies use SAS solutions to solve problem areas efficiently through their organizations.’ Last year SAS acquired energy consultants RiskAdvisory. Previously SAS was active in the oil vertical with its now discontinued SAS GEO data management offering.
