RMS 11.1

What’s New in RMS 11.1?

Struggling with poor data? Not confident in your model?

With RMS 11.1, you can capture uncertainty throughout the interpretation process, generate multiple realizations, and build accurate and robust models with less data and in less time.

RMS 11.1

RMS 11.1, Emerson’s leading reservoir modeling software, contains

  • new features and large enhancements (described in full in the Release Notes PDF document),
  • many small enhancements and fixes to satisfy client requests and client-reported issues (described in full in the Improvements and Fixes PDF document).

Access these PDF documents from the RMS menu bar (HelpRelease Notes).

New Features and Enhancements for RMS 11.1

RMS 11.1 introduces new features and enhancements including, but not limited to, those described in the following subsections.

RMS Plugins

  • RMS selection tools from the Data Explorer can now be used within Plugin panels. The available selector options include horizons, wells, and trajectories.
  • It is now possible to set RMS plugins to sub levels in the RMS Data tree.
  • Support for storing the state of check boxes has been enhanced. While previously, only the checked state was stored in the configuration, now the unchecked state is also stored, with the value None.

Roxar API

  • The Roxar API has been enhanced to provide full access to grid geometry; users now are able to create or update grid models with custom grid geometry.

3D Grids and Property Modeling

  • Improvements to the Channels NGOM job (see also Channels Next Generation Object Modeling):

    • New method for editing the channel shape, and shape editors are now expanded in Edit mode.

    • Distributions can be visualized in a plot for easier QC of the input data.

    • New, and more intuitive, icons introduced to describe to which directions trends will be applied.

      In the Volume fractions section, when setting the direction according to the grid layout, select between I, J, or K.

      When using trends as input to geometries, the directions are set according to the channel azimuth; select between Along channel, Perpendicular to channel and In depth.

    • Minor performance issues has been addressed to further enhance the usability of the job.

  • The i-Task for creating logs has been converted to a job in RMS and renamed as the Create Blocked Well Log job; as such, this can now be incorporated into automated workflows to ensure repeatable results (see also Creating Blocked Well Logs).

Presentation, Flexibility, and Usability

  • Several enhancements further increase the effectiveness of the existing workflow management capabilities within RMS (see also Using Workflow Management):

    • A tooltip has been added for Notes in RMS workflows; this tooltip provides the user name of the user who last edited the note, and the date and time of when the editing was made.
    • In the Workflows Area, two new directional arrow buttons have been added which allow you to go back, and go forward, to previously visited workflows in a project session.
  • You can now display point data in an Intersection view.

Import/Export Features

  • You can now export multiple SEG-Y data using the Export SEG-Y dialog box as opened from the Seismic folder in the Data tree (see also SEG-Y Multiple Export), and also export individual objects in the SEG-Y format, as in earlier versions of RMS, using the Export Single SEG-Y dialog box (see also SEG-Y Single Export).

Wells and Logs

  • The new Blocked Wells Log Calculator (IPL) job enables you to create new blocked well logs, based on mathematical operations on existing blocked logs. The functions used to create new logs can be stored in the calculator and applied to different sets of wells, and also be stored as IPL scripts for future use (see also Blocked Wells Log Calculator (IPL)).

  • A new Log Smoothing job has been added, enabling you to smooth log curves in the log runs of trajectories (see also Smoothing Logs).

  • The i-Task functionality for combining logs has been made into an RMS job, such that it can be accessed by IPL scripts, for example, as part of workflow which can be automated (see also Creating a Combined Log).

  • The new Create Horizon Picks from Surface job allows you to create Horizon well picks relative to a selected surface, with respect to the stratigraphic framework of the project (see also Creating Horizon Picks from a Surface).

  • The Remove Duplicate Horizon Picks dialog box allows you to delete duplicate Horizon well pick types in a well with respect to the stratigraphic framework in RMS (see also Removing Duplicate Horizon Picks).

  • The new Create Collection from Log Filter job allows you to create an RMS Data Explorer collection based on filtered logs (see also Creating Collections from a Log Filter).

Flow Modeling

  • The Composite Parameter Convert dialog box has been extended to support user-definition of the date format as applied in the name of result parameters (see also Converting Composite Parameters).


  • 3D seismic data in an RMS project has four subset items:

    • Region of Interest
    • Inline
    • Crossline
    • Time or Depth

    Multiple subsets can be created; using these subsets, you can investigate the seismic data by playing through the seismic cube using the Seismic Fence Player, and perform seismic interpretation directly using RMS’ Model Driven Interpretation functionality.

Structural Modeling

  • The Depth Convert Horizons and Depth Convert Faults jobs have been renamed as Domain Convert Horizons and Domain Convert Faults respectively.

    Using these jobs, it is now possible to perform both Time and Depth conversions for horizons and faults data (see also Domain Converting Horizons and Domain Converting Faults respectively), including their surfaces, polylines and points (see also Domain Converting Points/Polylines/Surfaces).

  • The Horizon Uncertainty Modeling dialog box has been improved where, for Depth to Depth workflows, there is the possibility to directly output a Horizon model using the new From horizon and fault model option as the Model setup mode (see also Horizon Uncertainty Modeling).

Data Analysis

  • Visualize density distributions in scatterplots with four available visualization effects, which can be applied individually or combined, to assist in gaining a better understanding of the density distribution for the data in the scatterplot (see also Scatterplot Toolbar and Density Tab).


  • The example project, Emerald, can be used to explore most features in RMS; download the project from www.roxarsoftwareportal.com

Changes Affecting Existing Projects

This section describes changes which affect existing projects through the released versions of RMS 11.1.


Projects older than RMS 2013.1 are not accepted by RMS 11.1.

  • In accessing the license server to check for available RMS licenses, the environment variable now used for the address to the server is GEOMATICLM_LICENSE_FILE.

  • On the Windows platform, the FlexNet 11.14 licensing software uses the Local Service rather than the Local System account as used by previous versions of FlexNet. It is therefore required that an Administrator level user installs the service, but also that the Local Service account has appropriate Write permissions for the directory where the log file is located.

  • For the Channels NGOM job, the available trend input for Volume Fractions has now been limited to 1D trends to ensure correct use and representation of the trends. If other trends have been used in previous versions of RMS, the trend input will be set to No trends when loading the project containing those Channels NGOM jobs into RMS 11.1.

  • The Geometric Modeling job, when the Creating regions based on nearest well option is selected, has been updated to provide two modeling modes, Normal and Simbox. The previous Additional output option True distance in simbox has been removed from the dialog box. This could prompt some changes in existing projects.

  • As part of a redesign of all region functionality in RMS 11, generating a fault block parameter in the grid was transferred from the previous Create Grid Index Parameters dialog box to the new Create Region Partition dialog box.

    The removal of the functionality in the old dialog box could impair workflows when upgrading projects. In RMS 11.1 the generation of a fault block parameter has therefore been reintroduced to the Create Grid Index Parameters dialog box. It is now possible to create a fault block parameter in both the Create Region Partition and Create Grid Index Parameters dialog boxes.

  • In versions of RMS earlier than 11.1, when adding uncertainties to a Geometric Modeling job using surfaces as input where the calculation type Height above surface was selected, uncertainty had to be set as constants. However these values were not taken into consideration when running an uncertainty study.

    Setting uncertainty on surfaces has now been made available in RMS 11.1. Projects from earlier versions, with invalid constant input to the uncertainty, will therefore have this uncertainty removed when loading in RMS 11.1.

  • In RMS 11, running a Horizon Modeling job, for some cases of models with many conformal horizons with no isochores between the horizons, could exhaust resources such that RMS could fail to respond.

    A modification has therefore been made to the default algorithm of the Horizon Modeling job to address such cases. Now, without input isochores, the algorithm will produce more continuous thicknesses across faults than previously; when running with input isochores, changes should be minor.

Scheduled Changes After RMS 11.1

  • The Facies Elementary job is scheduled for deprecation, given its functionality is covered by other facies jobs in RMS. Maintenance will not be carried out on this job after this release of RMS 11.1, and the removal of this job from RMS is planned for the near future.

    The Facies Elementary job has no parameters that can be altered in a multi-realization uncertainty setting, making it unsuitable for a Big Loop or multi-realization scenario, in contrast to the other facies modeling jobs in RMS. The Facies Composite and newer Channels NGOM jobs both have superior functionality and flexibility, and should therefore be used as an alternative to, or a replacement for a Facies Elementary job.

MDesign Pro

MDesign Pro includes all the Basic functionality, and in addition it contains the Focusing workflow.

MDesign’s Focusing analysis shows the resolution for migration based location methodologies – typically used for dense surface arrays and ocean bottom networks. The focusing of seismic energy at a given location can be determined using Point Spread Functions, which incorporate the network layout, the velocity model, and the shape and frequency of a source wavelet, to compute the imaging response. By generating Point Spread Functions throughout a model region, the effectiveness of a given sensor configuration can be evaluated. This analysis allows the user to optimise a sensor layout by ensuring, sensor count, sensor spacing, line length and line spacing are all sufficient for a given target region.


NORSAR Expert is a complete package for in-depth seismic illumination studies and model-based survey evaluation and analysis. It is the best in class ray tracing tool available in the market with unlimited batch processes, a Kirchhoff Target Migration workflow, extended export functionality and access to the software application toolkit.

gohfer 9.1.3 2019

GOHFER, which stands for Grid Oriented Hydraulic Fracture Extension Replicator, is a planar 3-D geometry fracture simulator with a fully coupled fluid/solid transport simulator. GOHFER was developed by Dr. Bob Barree of Barree & Associates in association with Stim-Lab, a division of Core Laboratories. GOHFER has been continually refined using established formulations that have been verified in Stim-Lab’s laboratory and in the field.

A regular grid structure is used to describe the entire reservoir, similar to a reservoir simulator. The grid structure allows for vertical and lateral variations, multiple perforated intervals as well as single and bi-wing asymmetric fractures to model the most complex reservoirs. GOHFER allows modeling of multiple fracture initiation sites simultaneously and shows diversion between perforations. The grid is used for both elastic rock displacement calculations as well as a planar finite difference grid for the fluid flow solutions. Fluid composition, proppant concentration, shear, leakoff, width, pressure, viscosity and other state variables are defined at each grid block.

The in-situ stress is internally calculated from pore pressure, poroelasticity, elastic moduli and geologically consistent boundary conditions. The width solution is fully 3-D allowing shear decoupling and local displacements are controlled by local pressures and rock properties. Screenouts consider localized leakoff and proppant holdup and are not assumed to be caused by pad depletion or insufficient width. Fracture extension is based on a smoothly closing tip model and eliminates the fictitious singularity at the tip as well as the stress intensity factor.

The fracture extension and deformation model in GOHFER is based on a formulation that expects the formation to fail in shear and be essentially decoupled. Most models assume linear-elastic deformation of a fully coupled rock mass. In shales the assumption of shear is critical. Along with this GOHFER accounts for pressure dependent leakoff, transverse storage in horizontal and off-angle fracture components, and pressure dependent modulus of the bulk rock mass. All these things happen as the formation is stressed to the shear failure point. The result is higher treating pressures, smaller fracture heights, and more difficulty in placing proppant. The proppant transport model in GOHFER also includes modeling of non-uniform solid and liquid velocities, solid holdup, and variable transmissibility linked to fracture offsets and irregularities.

GOHFER allows geologic structure to be included in the modeling to simulate fracture growth in complex folded and faulted regions. Fluid and proppant injection is automatically redistributed at each timestep to model simultaneous injection into multiple perforation sets or clusters in limited-entry or horizontal well treatments. Perforation erosion and variable near-well tortuosity are modeled based on simulation of both laboratory and field studies.

GOHFER models both horizontal longitudinal and transverse fractures (multiple transverse planar fractures off of a single wellbore). GOHFER can represent the 3D stress tensor, non-orthogonal fractures, fracture reorientation, wellbore tangential stresses and breakdown conditions. It handles stress shadowing or fracture interference of multiple transverse fractures. Perforations can be selectively opened or closed throughout the simulation to model either stage by stage, multiple cluster treatments with fracture interference calculated between clusters as well as interference between stages (stage stress shadowing). Ball drop treatments may also be simulated.

GOHFER accurately models fracturing results as verified by radioactive tracer, micro-seismic and tilt-meter surveys. It is the only model that is backed by more than 20 years of laboratory research in all major areas of transport and mechanics. GOHFER includes the ability to import micro-seismic data to compare with simulation results.

Multi-Well Fully 3D Geo-Mechanical Earth Model

GOHFER 3D allows for the import and modeling of multiple wells, including vertical and horizontal, in the same project/model. It accounts for the fracture stress shadow interference between each fracture and stage, on each well. Multi-layer completions, zipper-fracs, and offset depletion effects can be simulated. Allows for the import of a fully 3D geo-mechanical earth model (from Petrel GSLIB file for example). Includes the optional input of 2D surface map with reference well logs. Permits the geo-steering of laterals and engineered completions. Incorporates the full processing of log or “core” from 3D earth model.

Log Processing

Three-dimensional fracture simulation requires data to describe reservoir properties and variations in rock properties and stress to model fracture growth and post-frac production. It is important to understand the sources of input data and the correct ways to process and interpret it. Digital well logs offer the best and most convenient method of getting data for model input. So called “mechanical properties” logs or full-wave sonic logs are not necessary, as the required mechanical and reservoir properties can be derived from commonly available log suites.

GOHFER allows direct importing of digital log data and has a built-in log analysis package to create a more accurate lithologic description which means less tuning and fewer assumptions. The result is an in-situ stress profile that is internally calculated from pore pressure, poroelasticity, elastic moduli, and geologically consistent boundary conditions. The package includes scatter plot capability to establish linear relationships between log inputs to derive correlations. Useful “log assistants” are available to aid the user in developing a consistent geologic description.

A primary input for generation of rock mechanical properties is the compressional sonic travel time (DTC). Along with an input DTC curve several synthetic DTC curves can be generated from other available log tracks. This feature can be used to quality-check the measured DTC and to generate mechanical properties when sonic logs are not available as well as be used to help identify gas-bearing intervals. The synthetic DTC curves are very robust and correlations developed from a single input log can be used over a large area. Shear travel time (DTS) will be used if available, but is not needed to generate complete mechanical properties.

Pressure Diagnostics

Analysis of pre-frac injection/falloff tests can provide invaluable information about fracture closure stress, net extension pressure, pore pressure, reservoir flow capacity, the presence and stress state of natural fractures, leakoff magnitude and mechanism and many other parameters important to design. The correct execution and interpretation of these tests is critical to the fracture design process.

The Diagnostic toolkit contains all the tools necessary to perform injection/falloff analysis, after closure analysis and step rate injections. Injection/falloff tests can be used to determine closure pressure, net extension pressure, efficiency, the presence and stress state of natural fractures and the dominant leakoff magnitude and mechanism. Step rate injections can be used to determine pipe and near-wellbore friction, number of effective perforations open and frac extension pressure. Blowdown analysis can be used to estimate the wellbore compression at the beginning of pumping which provides a good value for the decompression at shut down. This can be used to estimate the amount of tortuosity required to match blowdown and determine a more accurate ISIP. After closure analysis can be used to define the reservoir flow capacity such as pore pressure and permeability. These methods first require the accurate identification of the reservoir transient flow regimes that occur after closure.

Production Prediction

GOHFER includes a complete production and economic analysis package that predicts production rate and volume both before and after frac. It also outputs many details regarding stimulation efficiency including all accountable damage components (to fracture conductivity), remaining effective frac conductivity, FCD, infinite-conductivity effective length, and NPV of design. GOHFER includes a filtercake deposition model related to permeability that is consistent with the expected formation flow capacity rather than fluid properties. Treatment and product costs and prices must be supplied by the user.

GOHFER uses the Stim-Lab Predict-K proppant database of more than 200 materials that have been studied extensively under actual field conditions of stress, time, and temperature. The cleanup and damage model incorporates the mechanisms identified during more than 30 years of research by StimLab (including multiphase non-Darcy flow, time dependent conductivity and stress/proppant crushing). is. The results have been verified and compared to hundreds of actual producing wells from around the world. The model has been proven to give reliable forecasts of production, if reservoir character can be defined. To our knowledge, there are no other production forecasting tools that come close to the sophistication and accuracy of GOHFER.

GOHFER runs the production analysis for the reservoir properties input to the model and for the fracture geometry, proppant distribution, proppant and fluid types that are used in the design. The model correctly handles production interference of multiple transverse fractures on horizontal wells and allows for the optimization of fracture spacing in unconventional reservoir development.

Production Analysis

The GOHFER Production Analysis module uses actual production data to analyze post-frac performance and assess stimulation effectiveness. It includes rate transient type-curve analysis, decline curve analysis, production forecasting to ultimate recovery, and flow regime identification. It can be used to determine fracture spacing and effective well spacing for horizontal wells, along with the fraction of the lateral producing

• LAS file import: The capability of grouping logs and support of the LAS v3.0 file format (import and export) has been added.
• Null values can be defined for each Well, Formula, Mud, Image and FWS Log individually in the log’s properties.
• New logs can be inserted as specific logs from log templates or as generic logs (i.e. without preset layout and scale).
• Users can save and apply log templates. Instead of dealing with generic log types like Well, Mud or Litho log the user can now select a Gamma Ray, Core Density or Rock Type log which comes with preset display styles.
• The Color Classification process has been improved to support a default color and saving of the processing parameters.
• The Log Summary Bar has been improved and provides a number of statistical option to be displayed along with the histogram.
• After a revision of the Statistics Bar it is now possible to generate Interval Logs from the statistics table displayed in the toolbar.
• When exporting multiple logs into a single *.TXT, *.CSV or *.ASC file the precision of each exported channel can be selected. Also the option to export data against depth intervals (e.g. litho beds or strata units) has been added.

· Comments added to a history data point are now displayed in plots as a popup (i.e. when hovering the cursor)
· Now possible to connect a history well to more than one prediction well.
· Flying brick plot – accessed from analysis button in the history simulation and prediction plot. Shows the various components for expansion and production for a particular time step. It is also possible to do an animation so it skips thru all the time steps.
Tight Reservoir
· Phase correction has been added to tight reservoir wells in MBAL. This is the same correction as in Resolve’s tight reservoir object.
· Added option to model gas dissolved in water
· Undo facility under input menu allowing users to undo a change to the main interface (i.e. the addition of a tank element / transmissibility). · MBAL will now auto-save the current data to a file in the temporary directory in case the PC fails or MBAL crashes.

What is New in PVTP 13.0
Path to Surface Data Object
The RESOLVE Path to Surface Object can now be used in PVTp to define the path to surface used to derive standard condition properties
What is New in PVTP 11.0
Improvements to Hydrafact hydrate model
PVTp code has been improved to provide a greater stability for hydrate calculations. The number of hydrate forming species has been increased. Improved modeling of CO2 hydrates.
New enthalpy model
New enthalpy model was implemented to allow more accurate thermal fluid properties calculation. The total enthalpy for each component is calculated as a sum of ideal and real enthalpy.
Specific heat matching
In previous version specific heat capacity was calculated from a simple correlation. As a result of that specific heat capacity values were overestimated, in particular for heavy oils. In the new version Lee and Kesler model along with possibility of specific heat matching were implemented to improve calculation of thermal properties.
Salt calculations have been added to flash calculations
It is now possible to run flash calculations with possibility of salt deposition and maximum solubility.
