Energy Company Enhances Technical Computing to Improve Upstream Operations

Apache Corporation, a global oil and gas exploration and production company based in Houston, Texas, ran its seismic interpretation and reservoir modeling applications on a 32-bit operating system, and its geoscientists were running into data size limitations. To better handle the large amount of data needed for making optimal drilling and production decisions, Apache deployed the 64-bit version of the Windows desktop operating system and the new 64-bit version of the Petrel 2009 seismic-to-simulation software preferred by its geoscientists. Now, the company's workstations can handle more data - 700 percent more since the software deployment - to improve reservoir modeling and seismic interpretation accuracy.
