Emirates Computers has completed a project that will allow the Abu Dhabi-based Zakum Development Company (ZADCO) to more effectively analyse oil and gas reservoirs. The ZADCO Visualisation Centre (ZVC) project, which was undertaken by Emirates together with Landmark, a brand of Halliburton’s Digital and Consulting Solutions division, will enable ZADCO to analyse and visualise oil and gas reservoirs faster and more accurately than before. “The ZVC will help in optimisation of the long-term field-development plan and have a direct impact on capital savings on operational costs and improved production and recovery,” said Hamad Bu Al Rougha of ZADCO. A key function of the facility is to interpret huge data-sets obtained from oilfields and to integrate it with other teams, with the aim of providing improved quality of information to assist management in their decisions on development options. The ZVC will enable geophysicists, geologists, reservoir engineers, operations staff and drilling engineers to work effectively in a collaborative environment. “The ZVC project was a complex one and needed careful design and implementation jointly with ZADCO,” said Rami Al-Naghi, project manager for Emirates Computers. “Having implemented the first visualisation centre in the UAE for ADCO in 1999, Emirates Computers had the knowledge and the expertise to successfully complete the ZVC in the most professional manner and in less than seven months.” The project deployed servers, software and visualisation solutions from Silicon Graphics and SEO Ltd.
