In enterprises where another project is tailored to the needs of the client rather than using basic tools. And where the estimate requires comprehensive cost buckets for production operations. When there is a large amount of purchasing history to enter into AspenONE Engineering in order for it to provide reliable projections. Standard equipment manufacturing enterprises are not well suited. Also, because this instrument requires time, when there are time limitation and resource or human limitations.

The Paradigm geologic and petrophysical interpretation software suite offers a complete package for integrated projects where a team starts from offset well data and leads all the way to mapping of horizons, properties and reservoir models. Geolog, the petrophysical module, is very powerful and versatile. Although they offer separate add-ons, for smaller projects where the petrophysical interpretation is done by a third-party, even the minimum package might be overkill.

Pros
Aspen Technology
  • Once an estimate is made, it can be simply copied and modified for another similar equipment estimate
  • ACCE can be customized per the company's requirements
  • Templates for each equipment style can be made and can be used repeatedly
  • Very detailed reporting, of each cost segment like steel, electrical, civil, instruments is available for analysis

  • Geolog is extremely robust and powerful in handling large volumes of logs per well and a large number of wells, which is an asset for basin-scale projects.
  • Geolog is very flexible in terms of customizing log layout presentations and calculating anything via mathematical or logical expressions.
  • Epos display of fluid production data is very useful in cross-analyzing maturity and organic content versus hydrocarbons produced.

Cons
Aspen Technology
  • The User Guide is far too large to browse and learn from.
  • Documentation is detailed while also being complicated.
  • Any modifications that need to be made will take a long time.

  • Geolog could use a LAS batch loading graphical interface that doesn't require the use of prompt commands.
  • Geolog's geologic intervals display has improved in the last versions, but it's still cumbersome to set up and maintain (i.e. adding new intervals, changing stratigraphy).
  • SKUA-Paradigm should support geographic coordinates in order to avoid the workaround of creating pseudo-coordinates across UTM zone boundaries.

We began assessing several tools when we began estimating for a full process plant or various styles of equipment. We also investigated implementing an ERP system used by the sales and item engineering departments.

Alternatives Considered
Aspen Technology
Again answering from the ACCE perspective (Estimating tool) - Previously when we did estimates for simple equipment we had used excel estimates and lotus reporting. However, as we started estimating for an entire process plant or various style of equipment, we had started evaluating various tools. We had also considered using an ERP system that is utilized by Purchasing and Product Engineering teams, however, ACCE seemed a better fit for the amount of detailed estimating needed. And the robustness and various options available made us select this tool.

Regarding the petrophysical modules, I have used other petrophysical software packages, and Paradigm is superior in data handling, visualization, flexibility, and batch calculations. Regarding the mapping and modeling, Paradigm is on par with other software I used on the same scale. SKUA-Gocad has some advantages over its main competitor, in terms of data manipulation, but the inability to handle geographic coordinates has a negative impact on my work efficiency.

Return on Investment
Aspen Technology
  • Investment apart from the cost of tool, is time - It is very time taking to obtain the results required
  • We are being trained by a professional consultant on ACCE, and yet to see the ROI
  • Detailed estimates as needed by Product Engineering is a plus

  • Paradigm Geolog has allowed us to handle the vast quantities of well log data in order to achieve our research goals and deliver the results to the sponsoring companies.
  • Paradigm Epos and SKUA-GOCAD have made possible to map the results of our petrophysical analysis on a basin-wide scale encompassing two provinces, without which our research deliverables would not have been possible.
