Ecrin 4.02软件是法国KAPPA公司的产品，KAPPA公司创建于1987年，致力于石油软件研发并提供咨询服务业务。KAPPA公司总部在法国巴黎，主要研发机构在法国Sophia Antipolis、美国Houston、加拿大Calgary、东南亚Perth和中东Bahrain，在许多国家都设有办公室或代理公司。目前KAPPA系列软件整合到一个平台Ecrin，她包括4个模块，既：Saphir – 试井解释软件、 Emeraude – 生产测井解释软件、 Topaze – 生产分析软件、 Diamant –生产数据管理软件。这些模块共用一个平台，并可共用压力、产量、模型、PVT、相渗及其它基本信息 ，避免在不同程序间重复加载，简化操作。同时Saphir和Topaze具有相同的模型，相同的特点，不同的技术目标仅通过拖拽就可实现复制。而Diamant不但可作为数据库，管理生产数据，技术目标和各模块解释结果，还具有强大的高保真过滤功能。该系列模块“功能强大，使用方便”，世界各大石油公司都在使用KAPPA公司的软件，中国也有大约350多个用户。目前，KAPPA公司的产品已经成为全球业内应用最广泛、最受欢迎的软件产品之一。
KAPPA is a Petroleum Exploration & Production software company created in 1987. The KAPPA software portfolio covers Pressure Transient Analysis (Saphir software), Production Logging interpretation (Emeraude), Production Analysis (Topaze), reservoir simulation (Rubis) and Well Performance Analysis (Amethyste). Most of these applications are now integrated in a single workstation environment, Ecrin. The application portfolio is complemented by Diamant Master, a client-server solution operated by the Diamant module of Ecrin. It was originally designed to process and share permanent gauges data and interpretation documents, but it has since then evolved towards a reservoir surveillance environment. KAPPA also offers Training and Consulting services in the same area as its software portfolio.
It integrates a new module for Well Performance Analysis; Amethyste and sees the fundamental re-write of the Production Analysis module Topaze.
Technically, major new developments have been made that constitute a real breakthrough in the path to integrate the analysis of dynamic data into the next generation of field management or ‘Intelligent Fields’ as they are known. This includes, for the first time, a reliable way to automatically identify shut-ins from PDG data, whether they are hard or soft. The demand for new tools for unconventional gas (shale gas, CBM) has been addressed by integrating desorption in the numerical models. For shale gas a numerical fractured horizontal well has been added. In the drive towards connectivity an ‘intelligent’ link between Diamant Master and an industry standard field model is included in this release.
Looking forward, the work has started in earnest on the restructuring some of the calculation modules to prepare the drastic move to generation 5 and development is underway in Rubis on a Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) prototype to model the injection and migration of CO2 in deep saline formations in the prospect of some pilot projects post Kyoto.
