What is pForecast?

Cloud-based statistical analysis software to digitalize, simplify, and standardize how production forecasts are generated and utilized

pForecast uses input data from subsurface tools, such as Eclipse, Network models and ResX, and performs a full life-time simulation of the production and injection forecast. With pForecast users can assign uncertainties to input data and do stochastic analyseby running Monte Carlo simulations.

Generalized production forecasting workflow

The foundation for business optimization in Exploration & Production companies 

Subsurface data take in well potentials and how much each well can deliver 

Drilling data consists of drilling schedules and rig availability

Facility operations comprise production efficiencies, planned shut-ins and capacity constraints 

Since pForecast is uncertainty-centric, uncertainty can be assigned to input data

With pForecast you can run both deterministic and stochastic analysis



Why pForecast?

With pForecast, your organization will substantially save time and effort. 

Forecast of existing wells and future drilling takes production efficiency 
and capacity limitations into consideration in the simulation scenario.


Smooth and efficient updates

With pForecast, your organization will save substantial time and effort, and it is easy to establish updated production forecast when assumptions change.

Uncertainty as an integral part of the prognosis work

pForecast quantifies the uncertainties by using Monte Carlo simulations which allow forecasts with low, expected and high values to be created.

Simplified reporting

Supports export to the company’s desired formats, including Petroleum Resources Management System (PRMS) and Norwegian Petroleum Directorate (NPD) standards.

Improved consistency

Based on cloud technology with user-friendly interface pForecast offers a uniform method for the company’s forecasting as a result of a common analysis framework across assets.

Effortless planning

It is easier to evaluate different planning scenarios using pForecast than with reservoir simulations alone. In pForecast, the switch from deterministic analysis to stochastic analysis is automatic! 

A great advantage is that when last-minute changes occur, neither additional nor manual adjustments are needed. In pForecast a heavy analysis from a reservoir simulation tool can be reused in a fraction of the time it would take to rerun the reservoir analysis itself. 

Mapping uncertainties in drilling schedules

For Exploration and Production companies it is important to take into account the uncertainties related to drilling. To meet this need, pForecast considers uncertainties involved in drilling schedules and rig availability.  

pForecast can automatically generate Gantt Charts for drilling schedules and show how uncertainty is propagating over drilling targets.

What our customers are saying

Forecasting and reporting of future production and injection

«Risk evaluation of production prognoses are commonly used within the oil and gas sector. What is unique with the Powersim Studio solution, is that uncertainties are considered an integral part of the prognosis work, not an activity applied after the base prognosis is established.»
