QuickWells has announced a toolset for the design, procurement and management of advanced completions. All completion data is held in a SQL Server database and a plugin development environment is available.

SPT Group and CD-adapco are to collaborate on optimizing computational flow assurance processes using their OLGA and STAR solvers.

Exprodat has released a new version of its Team-GIS Acreage Analyst, a data independent play fairway and acreage ranking ArcGIS 9.2 extension.

Galdos Systems has announced the free KML Validator on for Google Earth data files.

A new release of Fugro-Jason’s Geoscience Workbench includes ‘StatMod,’ a Monte Carlo statistics module developed for Jason’s reservoir characterization consultancy. StatMod combines geostatistics with seismic inversion to ‘reliably quantify uncertainty.’

The 2008 release of Merrick Systems’ eVIN mobile oilfield data capture tool offers route and stop management, capture of daily data, run ticket, and tank volumes and alarms and graphs for problem resolution. eVIN 2008 is used by Dallas-based Exco Resources to manage its 15,000 active US wells.
