Software

Various technological software

In geology‒related services, JOE analyzes geological and geophysical data, evaluates various reservoir parameters and calculates an original oil/gas in place using commercial software such as Schlumberger's Petrel. We also construct and/or evaluate geological models and reservoir models applying geostatistical methods.

Various technological software

In reservoir simulation‒related services, there is a wide variety of reservoir simulation models such as black-oil, compositional, natural fracture, thermal and chemical model. The appropriate model should be selected depending on the reservoir characteristics, fluid properties and production techniques. By using the best model for target field, we can perform history matching of the production history (observation data of oil and gas) and forecast the future production profile. For general oil and gas reservoirs, we use IMEX/GEM/STARS of Computer Modelling Group Ltd (CMG), ECLIPSE of Schlumberger, Nexus/VIP of Halliburton | Landmark and tNavigator of Rock Flow Dynamics.We also use CMG's GEM and TOUGH of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) in the evaluation of Carbon Dioxide Capture & Storage (CCS), which can take into account of mineral reactions between injected CO2 and the formation water.

JOE fully utilizes Aspen HYSYS® process simulator capabilities to develop simulation models of new and existing processing facilities and estimate solutions for facility bottlenecks. Along with process simulation model establishment, we estimate costs by using Aspen Process Economic Analyzer and Aspen Capital Cost Estimator in the stages of conceptual and basic design phase.

We also utilize PIPESIM licensed by Schlumberger to perform the calculation of gas lift operation performance, production history matching of producer/injector wells, and pipeline flow simulation.

JOE, as the sole user in Japan, utilize OGM (Oil & Gas Manager) licensed by SIEMENS for cost estimation of oil and gas field development in onshore/offshore in every region. In addition, we may use an engineering software, OLI as needed, which is a corrosion and scaling simulation program, to prevent and minimize corrosion/scaling that occur during oil and gas production.

Besides these, we utilize a wide array of software such as computational drawing software AutoCAD and AutoCAD PLANT 3D, pipe stress analysis software Auto PIPE as software of plant design and construction, electrical system analysis software ETAP power simulator, safety measures visualization software BowTieXP Standard, among others.
