Simon Wins Major Contract From Shell for Tigress

Simon Petroleum Technology (SPT) has signed a multi-million dollar contract with Shell International Petroleum Maatschappij BV (SIPM) on behalf of Shell Group world-wide. The contract establishes a global licence. maintenance and support agreement with Shell for Tigress (The Integrated Geoscience and Reservoir Engineering Software System) as a Shell Group Common System. The scope of the agreement provides for the supply of project database and application technology.

Tigress is an innovative software solution for multi-disciplinary teams who want to forecast and plan the optimum development of a reservoir from early appraisal through to maturity. There are three main components of the software: (1) the project database system which incorporates a broad based data model for principal data types in exploration and production studies (this is implemented in Sybase and Oracle RDBMS systems), (2) fully integrated geoscience and reservoir engineering applications based on the project database technology, allowing users to build a consistent and detailed subsurface model, and (3) for loading, scanning and digitising source data for plotting and reporting results.

New Integrated Petroleum Data Processing Center Opens in Moscow

(Paris, France) November 30, 1993 - A new integrated petroleum data processing center officially opened today at the Central Geophysical Expedition (CGE) location in Moscow. The center is a collective property of the Oil Production Associations in Russia and is a result of cooperative efforts between CGE, Geco-Prakla, GeoQuest, IBM and Intera. The installed hardware and software represents the largest delivery of computer systems approved by COCOM for delivery to Eastern Europe.

The new center will emphasize data processing and interpretation of geological, geophysical, well logging and reservoir data, the computer platforms will be an IBM ES/9121-320 vector supercomputer, a cluster of IBM RISC/6000 processors, sixteen (16) RS/6000 power workstations and forty (40) graphic workstations.
