Houston-based energy consultants Knowledge Reservoir (KR) has made two deals this month targeting reservoir monitoring and production surveillance. A new alliance with Roxar is to combine KR’s RightTime Analysis Service (RTAS) for production and reservoir surveillance with Roxar’s Integrated Reservoir and Production Management (iRPM) downhole gauge monitoring system. The joint venture originated in a monitoring job on a complex North Sea field with work performed remotely in Houston.
Roxar CEO Gunnar Hviding said, ‘Our downhole instrumentation provides customers with intervention-free reservoir surveillance and value-added iRPM analysis services. Partnering with Knowledge Reservoir will ensure that the maximum amount of value is generated from this data.’
In a separate deal, KR has teamed with NSI Upstream (formerly known as NetSCADA) to offer NSI’s Oil Field Commander (OFC) well and facility management software system as a component of KR’s RTAS. OFC provides a unified view of disparate data sets across multiple wells and complex reservoirs. Data can be calibrated, tagged, manipulated and verified, with outliers identified and stored for later review.
