Overview

LR IP is our modular formation evaluation suite. From porosity and pore pressure to reservoir productivity, LR IP gives you an incredibly capable and customisable solution to share and interpret well logs and many other vital data types.

LR IP's Basic bundle delivers sophisticated data management, calculation and deterministic workflow capabilities as standard. 20 further modules presented in six bundles add comprehensive optional functionality.

LR IP is compatible with Windows 7, 8 and 10.

IP Basic

IP Basic helps you analyse, visualise and share data to rapidly produce rigorous and reliable interpretations for a single well – or for thousands. The IP Basic bundle is far from basic, offering potent functionality as standard that competing products charge extra for.

Principle calculations like clay volume, porosity/water saturation, cut-off and summation, pulsed neutron analysis, organic shales and NMR interpretation are all part of the package. Together, they create an industry-leading deterministic petrophysical workflow built for efficiency and collaboration.

Compatible with a wide range of file formats and third-party products, IP Basic converges and standardises diverse data sources for easy presentation. It includes a comprehensive range of QC and pre-processing functions such as raw data editing, depth shifting and filtering along with powerful viewing and plotting tools. Visualise interpretations and employ interactive parameters within each zone to see instantly how input changes affect interpretation outcome.

LR IP can also easily share data with LR IC.

IP Basic's components include:

  • Clay volume: calculate clay or shale volume
  • Porosity and Water Saturation: robust iterative calculations minimise errors
  • Cut off and summation: identify Net Reservoir and pay zones
  • NMR interpretation and pulsed neutron analysis

User apps: build your own applications with our intuitive coding tools

Overview

Instantly scale LR IP's capabilities with a host of pre-integrated modules. Import, combine and derive insight from a universe of data types across all geoscience disciplines, from time-based LWD data to pressure tests and seismic.

With six bundles and 20 individual modules available, you can select exactly the right custom configuration to meet your needs. Plug each extra bundle or module into your IP Basic deployment to customise the product to your individual needs.

LR IP's tight cross-module integration helps you work in harmony, promoting collaboration across multiple disciplines. The complete answer for petrophysical interpretation, LR IP makes vital results visible and supports confident, profitable decision making.
