This report covers the second year of the Digital Petroleum
Atlas (DPA) Project. The DPA is a long-term effort to develop
a new methodology that provides efficient and timely access to
the latest petroleum data and technology for the domestic oil
and gas industry, research organizations and local governmental
units. The DPA is a new approach to generating and publishing
petroleum reservoir, field, play and basin studies. Atlas products
are available anywhere in the world using a standard point-and-click
world-wide-web interface (http://www.kgs.ku.edu/DPA/dpaHome.html).
All information and technology in the DPA can be accessed,
manipulated and downloaded in order to provide efficient transfer
of the technology for client-defined solutions. The DPA design
provides a dynamic product that is constantly evolving through
new information structures, the latest research results, and
incorporation of additional data. Through complete and flexible
user access to both the interpretative products and the underlying
reservoir and well data, the DPA significantly alters the relationship
between research results, data access, and the transfer of technology.
The second year of the DPA project concentrated on developing
methodologies and computerized procedures to generate and to
"publish" an expanded set of field and play studies
concentrated in Kansas. Access is provided through the DPA to
previously existing and new regional, play, field and individual
well information. Methodologies developed in year two of the
DPA Project provide improved access to a "published"
product and ongoing technology transfer activity that is continuously
updated with the latest information and technology.
