Geomodeling Technology, a provider of software for the upstream oil and gas industry, has released SBED 4.1 and SBED 4.1 for Petrel near-wellbore modeling applications.

SBED 4.1 will add automatic core plug conditioning to the oil and gas software available that models small-scale sedimentary details and produces accurate lamina-scale properties for use in reservoir modeling and simulation, the company said.

The company claims that the model has new features such as an improved simulation engine and data analysis tools, and can directly import data from Numerical Rocks e-Core digital pore-scale modeling software and thereby create a seamless workflow for pore-to-lamina scale modeling.

By using SBED 4.1, geologists and petrophysicists will be able to input core plug data derived from laboratory analysis into SBED models and the application will automatically condition a near well-bore model to match those results.

Geomodeling CEO Mark Klingbeil said core plug conditioning and a pore-to-lamina scale workflow are part of the company’s focus in solving difficult problems faced in today’s complex reservoir environments.
