Shell and Techsia team on petrophysical development

Shell’s reservoir staff work with software house to embed ‘cutting edge’ tools in Techlog.

Shell International E&P has commissioned French petrophysical boutique Techsia to develop and implement Techsia’s Techlog petrophysical platform. Techlog supports analysis and interpretation of well log and core data. Shell will deploy the tools for both wellsite operations and office-based integrated studies.


Hans de Waal, Shell’s chief petrophysicist said, ‘Shell is a leader in petrophysics. The cooperation between Shell and Techsia endorses the capability that Shell has built over the past 60 years. Techlog will help us to develop and implement further new applications—in fact we are already seeing its impact on project cycle times.’

Step change

This development targets a ‘step change’ in performance with improved data viewing and uncertainty management. Shell reservoir staff and Techsia software engineers are to collaborate on software development.

Two phase

The development will initially target basic petrophysical workflows, the data model, connectivity, user programming capabilities, multi-well layout, performance and parameter management. Phase two will extend Techlog with Shell’s ‘cutting edge’ petrophysical tools.
