Chevron adds Petrel to E&P software mix

Supermajor integrates Schlumberger flagship with in-house technology and deploys globally.

Chevron has deployed Schlumberger’s Petrel ‘seismic-to-simulation’ package as one of its global interpretation and modeling solutions. Chevron business units around the world will now have Petrel available for their G&G workflows.


Peter Breunig, CIO of Chevron Energy Technology Company, said, ‘Following an internal needs study and an assessment of available products, we selected Petrel to enhance our teams’ ability to analyze data quickly and effectively in a collaborative environment and to reduce exploration risks. Petrel will be integrated with our proprietary technology and deployed globally throughout our E&P organization.’

Earth model

Petrel’s plug-in architecture and the Ocean API will be used to embed Chevron’s proprietary tools and to standardize its processes around Petrel’s earth model. Chevron and Schlumberger are also developing a ‘next generation’ reservoir simulator, ‘Intersect’ (OITJ September 2005).
