Building a comprehensive database is the first key phase in Fram’s workflow process and enables us to process large volumes of subsurface information. To ensure the optimal use of this information in the data analysis phase, all data is digitized as soon as possible.
Data is obtained from multiple sources and includes that generated from geological field work, wireline logs (and, in particular, image logs) and logs obtained through LWD and MWD. Evaluation of core samples and cuttings data collected while drilling are also critical data elements in this stage of the process. Paper data, such as old logs, geological cross-sections and maps are routinely digitized and loaded into the database as additional input.
Additionally, Records from previous well tests and/or production data obtained from former operators or those developing nearby fields are used to provide additional insights regarding each targeted reservoir. Finally, seismic data is reprocessed according to our internal standards and priorities.
