Use QSI to improve drilling success through early characterization of reservoir properties

Paradigm 15

Higher Productivity through High-Definition Workflows

Paradigm 15 Brochure

Paradigm 15, the high-definition platform of excellence, not only reflects our commitment to provide advanced science solutions to everyone, but also aims at expanding interconnectivity with other vendors’ platforms. Paradigm 15 is designed to help users maintain and improve profitability through enhancing efficiency while lowering risk and cost. 

Paradigm 15 enables customers to:

  • Develop most productive targets first
    • Re-rank and requalify prospects: Prioritize expenditure to the asset with the sweetest most profitable spot first.
    • Identify most productive zones: Target highest TOC, most fractured, biggest net pay areas first.
  • Drill fewer, better wells
    • Optimal well spacing in 3D: Know how many wells are too many, determine how close is too close, and set drilling priority schedule
    • Fracking and re-fracking optimization: Shortlist wells to which fracking is allocated first and prioritize  fracking to most producible stages
  • Minimize non-productive time
    • Plan to drill safely and efficiently: Stay within zone of interest with geosteering; avoid hazards with real-time pore pressure prediction


How does Paradigm 15 help users increase workflow productivity and efficiency?
