This comprehensive software portfolio gives YPF a holistic subsurface view of its reservoirs and exploration areas, leading to a collaborative and integrated seismic interpretation workflow for faster cycle-times.
Emerson replaces other interpretation solutions at YPF and becomes its corporate interpretation software standard.
As the leading E&P company in Latin America, YPF produces almost 50% of the oil and 30% of the natural gas in Argentina.
Production comes from more than 100 areas in Argentina’s 5 producing basins: Austral, Golfo San Jorge, Neuquina, Cuyana and Noroeste.
YPF sees Emerson’s seismic interpretation solution - combining geophysics, geology, petrophysics and engineering - as an essential contributor to its drilling success.
Due to the integrated environment, seismic interpreters will access a unique database and use modeling technology to validate their interpretation and to construct more representative models of the subsurface.
Teresa Santana, chief geophysicist of YPF, said:
- After an intensive technical and economical evaluation, we concluded that Emerson’s applications provide an interpretation platform that enables project integration, seismic interpreters collaboration and provides easy access to the corporate database while accommodating multiple users.
- This allows us to maximize the usage of data, reduce the seismic interpretation cycle-time to reach most accurate results in an integrated and collaborative way;
Steve Santy, president of E&P software at Emerson, said:
- Our goal is to help energy exploration and production companies extract the most from their field assets;
- We are proud to collaborate with YPF and to provide the tools and insights they need to increase efficiency, reduce costs and seismic interpretation time, and accelerate digital transformation.
The agreement also gives YPF access to Emerson software solutions for processing and imaging, modeling and petrophysics.
