As we look back in time we see that radical advances in business processes evolve in step changes facilitated by new technology. The proliferation of the Internet and current explosion of Virtual Reality in the energy sector are clear examples of this trend. With Virtual Reality integrated three dimensional software, high end graphics and massive compute power provide the technology driver for a step change in the pace and accuracy of the decision making process. Fueled by the painless collaboration that it enables companies are turning to Virtual Reality in order to make better decisions faster in the volatile markets of the real world. From research to exploration, drilling and production this paper explores the application of this technology and the benefits discovered by those using it throughout the reservoir lifecycle. Examples and case histories will accompany the technology solutions.
