Assai has ported its engineering document management solution from Oracle Forms to freeware Vaizr running on Tomcat, eliminating the need for an Oracle application server.

Battelle has announced PipeAssess PI (pipeline integrity, not ‘PI!’). PA-PI embeds physics-based modeling and prediction for axial crack growth.

The 2017 release of Blue Marble’s Geographic Calculator includes a new quality control tool for seismic survey data to assess pre and post stack seismic data in UKOOA and SEG-Y files.

Petrotechnical Data Systems (PDS) has announced the Ava Clastics analogue database and clastic sedimentology package. This includes ‘GeoCypher,’ co-developed with the University of Leeds.

DNV GL has launched the PKI methane number calculator for pipeline gas to ensure that the fuel is fit for purpose. The algorithm quantifies the effect of pipeline gas quality on engine knock to ensure safe and efficient engine operations.

IHS Markit’s Engineering Workbench 2.0 retrieves relevant information from the ‘universe’ of technical knowledge that includes standards, codes, specifications, patents and technical references.

Industrial Skyworks has announced Blue VU, software for drone-based building, and oil and gas infrastructure inspections. Blue VU offers intelligent organizing of UAV images, synchronized use of UAV imagery, 3D point clouds and vectorized inspection results.

INTViewer 5.2 brings improved performance, a new GUI and Python automation.

Kappa Workstation 5.12 includes advanced models released by the Kappa unconventional resources consortium.

Emerson’s Roxar Tempest 8.0 provides risk mitigation, increased field productivity and expanded integration from geosciences to production. V8 features additional history-matching capabilities and an integrated ‘big loop’ workflow.

Schlumberger has announced a new artificial lift management service, Lift IQ offering soup-to-nuts production life cycle management operated from remote surveillance centers around the world.

Seeq R17 adds visual analytics on ‘past, present and future data’ and new multivariate regression and reference signals for ‘golden batch’ analytics. The new version was unveiled at the 2017 OSIsoft user conference with Devon Energy’s work on oil field tank haul-off improvement as poster child.

Terrasciences has released ‘TLAS,’ an Android app for viewing log ascii standard (LAS) well log files. TLAS comes as both ad-supported freeware and a Pro version with more functionality including LWD data display.
