DTEK Oil&Gas became the first company in Ukraine to start using modern technologies for the petrophysical modeling of hydrocarbon reservoirs based on the specially configured Interactive Petrophysics (IP) software.

Expanding the Use of Innovative Technologies in Geology

The Interactive Petrophysics software package is considered to be one of the world industry standards and is intended for the advanced petrophysical analysis of reservoir data sets. It allows combining all well data – geological and industrial research, well-logging curves, core data, geophysical measurement data, and well imagers – into one workflow. This way the company receives an integrated assessment of the reservoir properties, well productivity and the hydrocarbon deposit potential. Flexible interactive algorithms for working with data allow solving problems both for one well and for the whole field.

Ivan Gafych, Exploration and Prospective Development Director at DTEK Oil&Gas, said, “The use of innovative products in geology and geophysics is very important for oil and gas companies. Interactive Petrophysics lets us comprehensively study the hydrocarbon potential and productivity of well logs in more detail, develop the optimum program to extract their reserves, and reduce the geological risks of drilling and production. As a result, this will help to optimize investments and increase the efficiency of field development. Innovative technologies are important for achieving Ukraine’s gas independence.”
