Petrel 2022.2 delivers major performance improvements when connecting to Studio E&P knowledge platform and initializing Studio platform tools, as well as when interacting with filters, data tables, and dialog boxes. In addition, when prolonged queries are initiated from the repository data table, navigating to another data tab or swapping between repository filters before the results have been returned will now correctly suspend the query. It will no longer continue to consume SQL Server resources in the background.
Petrel 2022.2 offers further enhancements in the way the movement of composite, arbitrary line, and vertical intersections can be locked or unlocked.
Live Collaboration on seismic horizons, 2D and 3D interpretation, regular surfaces, points, polygons, faults, and fault contacts is now enabled and available on premises. New objects added to a collaboration session or edited while joined to a session are automatically created and updated in other projects joined to the collaboration session.
With QI machine learning, facies can now be predicted from elastic and petrophysical properties. The facies prediction model is trained on well log data and can be applied to well logs and seismic input volumes.
High-frequency analytical and statistical wavelets with sample rates less than 1 ms can now be generated to use with ultrahigh and high-resolution seismic data.
Petrel 2022.2 delivers improved performance when displaying and moving many wells and large surfaces in a map window. This applies also when a user is switching between multiresolution and high-resolution surfaces. In the well manager, performance is also improved when large number of checkshots, logs, or both are displayed, as well as for raster digitization process.
Depogrid geometry and properties can now be displayed as background in the well section window through the well section template settings.
The log editor can now be used under workflow editor, and variables can also be added to more fields within the make edit surfaces process under the workflow editor.
All the well tops collections can now be displayed in well data browser. The points outside of the filtered area can now be hidden in the histogram window, and the files with ”.DRA” format can be imported into Petrel platform.
STRUCTURAL AND RESERVOIR MODELING
Petrel 2022.2 provides more flexibility when running structural gridding to generate a depogrid. Additional options have been added to limit the grid based on a selection of continuous zones, or the depospace extent, significantly reducing grid size and grid creation time.
Variograms and variogram maps can now be extracted directly from depogrid properties, in addition to the comprehensive geostatistical analysis tools already supported through the data analysis module.
Facies user-defined objects, which were limited to training image grid, can now be used to directly generate facies and training image properties as input for multipoint simulations in any grid.
Petrel 2022.2 offers great new solutions for making and editing geomechanical grids. When embedding a source grid into a geomechanical grid, it can now directly be coarsened in this process and existing properties are upscaled automatically. Minor geomechanical grid updates now preserve existing grid properties.
Further improvements include a simplified user interface for populating mechanical properties, an option to use a secondary reservoir grid as an input for coupled simulation, a new export feature for simulation results in selected areas of interest, and improved support for Petrel platform workflows.
Chemical reactions for compositional and thermal fluid in the reservoir can now be modelled in the Make fluid model process. Users can define reactions in one-way or equilibrium form between components in the gas and oil phases and water.
Thermal fluid modeling improvements include visualization of enthalpy and viscosity interpolation method selection.

Petrel Software Features:
Cooperation and communication of different disciplines
It takes a while to realize that integration is essential, yet data integration is just the beginning and requires a thorough integration of business processes to get a detailed insight into repositories with complex structures. This has led to the protection and absorption of information from exploration to production or, in some cases, from oilfield modelers to reservoir engineering and beyond, leading to a shared vision of the underground reservoir. Whether the user is exploring deep water wells or developing a shale rock drilling program, petrel provides multi-disciplinary rotational capability.

Windows 10 / 11
With the Drillbench 2022 release, the technology has been streamlined to a suite of three individual offerings that represent the main stages of well control: primary, secondary, and tertiary.
The Blowout Control module is now built upon the latest OLGA engine, which brings transient non-Newtonian three-phase modeling to deliver a unique level of sophistication and resolution to our drilling engineering software. Other important updates include a major improvement of the mud gas separator functionality in the Dynamic Well Control module and an upgrade of the dual-gradient drilling simulation feature in the Dynamic Hydraulics module.
The new Drillbench 2022.1 contain general improvements and fixes valid for all applications. In addition to the upgrade of the application platform, there are also many application specific improvements and fixes.
New Graphical Profile
Drillbench 2022 uses a new graphical profile that is better adopted to new hardware. The intention is to improve the appearance on different types of monitors and displays from projectors to large, high resolution monitors.
Improved Survey Visualization
A new 3D survey visualization tool has been added to Drillbench . The new solution provides more details and is easier to use than previous versions.
An important improvement, is the ability to modify plot settings, styling and to adjust scaling. This is valuable to get better understanding of a complex well environment – in particular useful in the case of modelling a relief well in addition to the main well.
The configuration of colors and styling makes the view more detailed and better both for screen display,
presentations and in print.
Upgraded interface components and development tools
Drillbench development tools, compilers and thirdparty components have been upgraded to perform and display better with current versions of Windows. The newer components includes upgrades and bug fixes that adds to an improved appearance and performance of Drillbench 2022 compared to previous versions.
Improved Blowout Control
Many important changes has been made in the new Blowout Control that improves consistency and accuracy in order to provide even more value to our customers. A smoother installation and user administration process will also make the user experience much nicer with the new version compared to previous versions.
New OLGA engine
The OLGA engine has been upgraded to current OLGA 2021.1. A huge effort goes into improving the OLGA engine yearly – and in particular features needed for solving complex drilling related issues.
The simulations performed in a blowout scenario represent a quite heavy numerical solution, and may result in performance problems. Improved performance has therefore been a key focus area for many years. There are many factors contributing to the overall performance improvement we are observing, but the most important are:
• Improved and optimized the internal communication between application and engine as OPC has been
replaced with ZeroMQ.
• Improved grid definition tailored to drilling scenarios, avoiding small grid cells that sets unnecessary
constraints in time step and consequently speed
• Applying smart assumptions and limitations that are fully acceptable and tailored to drilling scenarios
• Preparing simulation files, removing unused elements
• Performance improvements achieved by the engine upgrade
• In cases where the small time steps are required to capture particular transient behavior, the time step
control speeds up to optimum as soon as the transient period is over and the same accuracy can be
achieved with larger timesteps. This feature has been significantly improved since previous version.
In total, these improvements gives up to 10 times faster simulations than previous versions. The improvement observed will differ from case to case, depending on the case complexity.
