RockWorks in the Petroleum Industry

RockWorks includes many petroleum industry software tools for the oil and gas industry. From creating cross sections and section maps, to isopach maps and reservoir modeling, RockWorks gives you the tools to get the job done.

Use RockWorks to import and manage all of your reservoir data, storing well locations, well surveys, lithology, elog, stratigraphic, and other downhole data in a well database.

Include rasterlogs in 2D and 3D logs. The interactive depth registration window makes it a snap to define the image’s top and base depths.

  • Scanned paper electic logs
  • Outcrop photographs
  • Photos of cuttings and core

Include raster images in your logs for picking stratigraphic tops

The enhanced stratigraphy picker allows you to display digital or raster elogs (along with any other available log data) and pick stratigraphic tops and bases. As contacts are selected, the correlation panels are drawn on the screen, making pinchouts easier to detect and corrections easier to make.

Create production maps, lease maps, and a variety of reference maps. Float or drape these over your 3D logs, solids, and surfaces.

Create 2D and 3D geosteering diagrams from downhole survey, gamma-resistivity, and gas data. Calculate optimal well paths from XYZ points.
