Tullow goes for Petrel Workflow

PC-based solution to oust ‘legacy’ interpretation tools. Open Works retained as corporate data store.

London-based Tullow Oil has selected Schlumberger Information Solutions’ Petrel as its primary seismic interpretation, petrophysical and reservoir modeling tool.


Tullow Exploration Manager Chris Flavell said, ‘We can make faster and more accurate decisions by taking advantage of the streamlined workflows available in Petrel. Cross-domain integration improves knowledge sharing across our workflow.


Tullow geophysicist John Boucher added ‘Petrel has been deployed globally and provides a cost-effective solution for our seismic interpretation and modeling needs. Our experts now collaborate on a shared model, using a shared set of tools—resulting in a more complete understanding of our reservoirs and their drainage characteristics.”


Petrel will interface with Tullow’s existing OpenWorks corporate data stores via OpenSpirit, avoiding the need for any migration of data. Tullow is to replace its legacy interpretation packages with Petrel tools.
