Building upon the extensive IFP Group experience for numerical modeling of petroleum systems, TemisFlow is the next-generation solution for basin modeling. It excels in assessing regionally-controlled petroleum systems while identifying local drilling opportunities and quantifying the associated commercial & technical risks. Meeting the demand for higher performance tools and bringing ergonomics to a new level, TemisFlow is the essential basin modeling tool.
As shown by the long record of successful achievements of the Temis product family in the most challenging oil and gas provinces, TemisFlow applicability ranges from regional quantitative prospect assessment to pre-drill pressure prediction. Varied workflow design combined with seamless multi-dimensional modeling ensures software adaptability to the technical objectives sought, from quick-look 1D or flexible 2D simulations to fully quantitative 3D assessment. For unmatched model predictivity, n-component full-physics Darcy Flow simulation allows for a rigorous delineation of migration pathways and accumulations volumes and quality. Fast-track prospect ranking is achieved through map-based PVT-controlled assessment. Pressure prediction-oriented studies like effective stress cubes reconstruction for enhanced seismic imaging can be successfully tackled as well, thanks to Darcy-flow based overpressure calculation and a mechano-chemical compaction law. Multi-layer salt tectonics modeling through paleo-thickness variations is featured. Those capabilities and many more adds up to make TemisFlow the most versatile solution for basin simulations.
Embedded in OpenFlow Suite, TemisFlow benefits from the integrated OpenFlow work environment. Sharing, visualizing and accessing data, managing projects has never been easier. Openness to other IFP group family products as well as to third-party software is featured. When it comes to the modeling task itself, productivity enhancement is the watchword. Dedicated features like seamless and interactive model building capabilities, semi-automated tasks for data formatting and mesh generation, automatic grid quality control with on-the-fly corrections shine for shrinking overall study realization time. Operational effectiveness is also boosted by an innovative tree-based scenario management tool which keeps track of the successive changes made to a study, easing calibration work while limiting data volume.
Powerful viewing capabilities seamlessly tied to the model building process, slick interactive edition and extraction tools as well as cunning results analysis functionalities are at the core of Temis-Flow software, bringing interactivity, user-control and ergonomics to a new level. The innovative region-based post-processing capability feeds you in the glimpse of an eye with the outputs you want to pinpoint. It allows for a quick focus on very specific areas among the millions cells of a 3D model, filtering interactively the full block with a set of criterions applied on geometry and properties. Linked to a reporting tool that generates instantaneously a complete set of relevant information and stats data by compiling output variables values, the region editor offers unmatched power and flexibility to access and focus on the results of interest, quickly.
Objective of the study was to identify new exploration targets by providing a sound assessment of the generation, migration and entrapment processes. Main challenge was to provide a detailed description of petroleum fluids compositional heterogeneities in paleozoic deep targets, in order to assess the origin of gas and condensates. The proven capabilities of the calculator in terms of compositional modeling allowed taking it up. Darcy-based fluid flow approach proved to be decisive while delineating migration pathways, due to the strong control of over-pressure distributions and faults cutting regional evaporite seals on the hydrocarbon fluids flow. The Local Grid Refinement technology allowed combining this full-physics fluid flow modeling approach with the compositional model while keeping a high spatial resolution in the reservoirs. Only such a coupled modeling of the evolution of petroleum fluids composition was ultimately able to reproduce compositional heterogeneities observed within reservoir units.
