HOUSTON, Sept. 7, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- NSI Technologies, a Premier Oilfield Laboratories Company, is proud to announce the launch of Version 8 of StimPlan™ Hydraulic Fracturing Software at the 2017 Society of Petroleum Engineers Annual Technology Conference and Exposition in San Antonio this October. The highly-anticipated version features a complete program rewrite helping to provide additional stability and improved processing time as well as a completely new user interface designed to provide a more intuitive workflow.
NSI Technologies President and StimPlan™ creator Dr. Michael Smith said, "We are very excited to begin our roll out of StimPlan™ version 8. This version builds on our established framework while providing additional features aimed at the modern fracturing engineer working in an unconventional environment."
Just prior to the announcement of Version 8, NSI Technologies added the ability to simulate multiple, parallel fractures with the ability to determine how the mechanical interference (stress shadowing) between fractures is calculated. Additional StimPlan™ features include:
- Expanded "batch" capabilities to better allow for sensitivity studies
- New input allowing the Geologic Layering to be shifted (creating a new Geologic Model) for each stage of a horizontal well
- Discrete natural fracture network inputs can now be transferred to the reservoir simulation for a rigorous simulation of a natural fractured reservoir
- Direct inputs have been added for performing stage-to-stage interference simulations
NSI and Premier will be demonstrating version 8 at booth 2344 at the 2017 SPE-ATCE event in San Antonio. Visit www.nsitech.com for more about StimPlan™ and a complete list of demonstration times.
