Geological model of Groningen gas reservoir now open access

DeepNL researchers recently indicated a need for geological information on the Groningen gas reservoir. In response, the field producer, the Nederlandse Aardolie Maatschappij (NAM) has agreed to openly distribute their Petrel geological model via EPOS-NL.The model includes 3D formation horizons and fault maps, well data (porosity/permeability/water saturation) and seismic data, all loaded in a Petrel environment. Both NAM and EPOS-NL are very interested in who will use the model, so if you plan on using it – do let us know (info[at]epos-nl.nl). In addition, EPOS-NL is currently building a support structure for less experienced Petrel users, led by Dr. Fred Beekman.
The model can be accessed at the Yoda data center of Utrecht University.
