Baker Hughes is releasing its next-generation JewelSuite 6 software, which helps operators improve data-driven decisions across all E&P domains.

It has integrated applications for geological modeling and reservoir engineering, geomechanical modeling, and reservoir stimulation. The software provides effective modeling solutions to help operators increase certainty in their operations, reduce costs and improve productivity.

Each JewelSuite 6 software application has a modern intuitive user interface, automated workflows and built-in smart rules to help increase operational efficiency, data accuracy and accelerate the learning curve for new users.

The geological modeling and reservoir engineering application can rapidly build accurate models and run multiple scenarios in complex reservoirs. It can also assist the user in determining an economically viable development plan for projects. Clearer understanding of the subsurface enables better decisions on well placement, reserves estimation and production planning.

The new software creates detailed models that assist users in predicting drilling and production problems and developing solutions to mitigate them. It can be used independently or as part of integrated geomechanical workflows— from one-dimensional well-centric models to advanced 3D reservoir-centric models, 3D fault stability analysis and 4D full-field finite-element geomechanical simulations—all within a single interface.

The JewelSuite 6 software is the latest example of Baker Hughes’ strategy to improve well efficiency, optimize production and increase ultimate recovery.
