Statoil Prognoses and Risk Evaluation

Based on the Powersim Studio software, an integrated simulation tool has been developed for Statoil. The solution generates production prognoses for selected oil and gas fields for internal as well as external purposes.

An example of an external purpose is the requirement for governmental reporting. For both internal and external purposes, the tool allows for risk evaluation of production figures.

 “Risk evaluation of production prognoses are commonly used within the oil and gas sector. What is unique with the Powersim Studio solution, is that uncertainties are considered an integral part of the prognosis work, not an activity applied after the base prognosis is established.”

Frank Fosse, Senior Advisor, Statoil

The Powersim based tool makes the process of establishing the prognoses both safer and less resource demanding for Statoil.
