Petrel 20 Years

Schlumberger
4

The Petrel E&P software platform started 20 years ago when Technoguide, a Norwegian startup based in Oslo, released the first version of Petrel 1.0 in December 1998.

The Petrel platform has become an industry standard and has revolutionized the way we work in all domains. Today, the active global community of users continue to push the boundaries of subsurface understanding using the Petrel platform.

In creating this special anniversary book, we want to take a moment to reflect on that history and to celebrate the many achievements we have made together with you—our customers and partners.

This book assembles the historical facts, people, and culture of Schlumberger as it recognizes the 90th anniversary of the first well log conducted in Pechelbronn, France, in 1927. 


It is a story that began with Conrad and Marcel Schlumberger, the sons of a successful French businessman in the textile industry. Originally, their father Paul was drawn more to the study of science and did not think the world of business would suit him. When Paul took over the family firm with great success, he did not abandon his interest in the sciences. Instead, he imparted his thirst for knowledge to his sons and provided the financial support they needed to pioneer a new field, subsurface metrology, the science of measurement. Armed with their father’s support, Conrad and Marcel set out on a journey that would have a lasting effect on the oil and gas industry.


Today Schlumberger is the world’s leading provider of technology for reservoir characterization, drilling, production, and processing to the oil and gas industry. Working in more than 85 countries and employing approximately 100,000 people who represent over 140 nationalities, Schlumberger supplies the industry’s most comprehensive range of products and services, from exploration through production, and integrated pore to pipeline solutions that optimize hydrocarbon recovery to deliver reservoir performance. Schlumberger seeks to become the best-run company in the world by leveraging its established strengths in technology, people, and size and focusing its actions in four areas—growth, returns, integrity, and engagement.


Schlumberger has weathered the vagaries of the oil and gas industry by maintaining a clearly defined identity, investing the time to understand its customers and investors, and possessing a willingness to change. The qualities that have defined the company for the last 90 years will serve it well as we look to the future in an industry that, at the time this book was published, was navigating the longest industry downturn in the past 30 years. Though the industry’s cyclic nature is a familiar one, the current situation is not the result of lower demand or other external factors that characterized previous downturns. This unique downturn has caused many consequences for the oil and gas industry, and Schlumberger hopes to lead the way to the future.

Reflecting the myriad changes and advancements in the technologies involved in FTIR, particularly the development of diamond ATRs, this second edition of Fundamentals of Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy has been extensively rewritten and expanded to include new topics and figures as well as updates of existing chapters.

Designed for those new to FTIR, but with enough reference material to appeal to journeyman and expert spectroscopists, this book does not demand any extensive familiarity with chemistry or physics. Specializing in concise and comprehensible explanations of FTIR topics, the author introduces the field of infrared spectroscopy, including the strengths and weaknesses of FTIR as a chemical analysis technique. He then describes the instrument itself and explores topics such as how an interferometer generates a spectrum, optimization of spectral quality, and which tests are used to monitor instrument health.

The book discusses how to properly use spectral processing to increase the information of a spectrum without damaging the data and takes considerable care in instructing on sample preparation, as good sample preparation constitutes half the battle in extracting good data. The final chapters examine single analyte quantitative analysis and conclude with an overview of infrared microscopy.

Drawing on the experience and knowledge of the author as both a professor and practitioner, Fundamentals of Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy offers up-to-date information given in clear, easily understood language to appeal to beginner and expert spectroscopists alike. The author maintains a website and blog with supplemental material. His training course schedule is also available online.
This second edition of An Introduction to Predictive Maintenance helps plant, process, maintenance and reliability managers and engineers to develop and implement a comprehensive maintenance management program, providing proven strategies for regularly monitoring critical process equipment and systems, predicting machine failures, and scheduling maintenance accordingly.

Since the publication of the first edition in 1990, there have been many changes in both technology and methodology, including financial implications, the role of a maintenance organization, predictive maintenance techniques, various analyses, and maintenance of the program itself. This revision includes a complete update of the applicable chapters from the first edition as well as six additional chapters outlining the most recent information available.

Having already been implemented and maintained successfully in hundreds of manufacturing and process plants worldwide, the practices detailed in this second edition of An Introduction to Predictive Maintenance will save plants and corporations, as well as U.S. industry as a whole, billions of dollars by minimizing unexpected equipment failures and its resultant high maintenance cost while increasing productivity.

A comprehensive introduction to a system of monitoring critical industrial equipmentOptimize the availability of process machinery and greatly reduce the cost of maintenanceProvides the means to improve product quality, productivity and profitability of manufacturing and production plants
