红帽Linux搭台 助力大庆油田剩余油挖潜 (Red Hat Linux is setting stage to help Daqing Oil Field explore potentials in remaining oil)

红帽企业Linux将被应用于大庆油田的油藏数值模拟系统项目


今天,全球领先的企业级开放源代码解决方案供应商红帽公司(NASDAQ:
RHAT)宣布,成功签约大庆油田责任有限公司(以下简称大庆油田),红帽企业Linux将被应用于大庆油田的油藏数值模拟系统项目。大庆油田希望通过该
项目促进对油田剩余油的分析,进一步稳固油田的产量。



油价近年来不断攀升,如何控制好成本是整个石油行业都关注的问题。处于石油行业上游的油田同样也面临着这样的问题,“对石油行业来说,降低成本的关键是管
理好数据和信息,以及先进技术的正确使用。”英国剑桥能源研究协会(CERA)针对石油上游成本的症状开出了药方。



油藏数值模拟系统是在高性能计算机上数值模拟油气资源在开采过程中的复杂流动,以了解和控制油气田的生产动态,为控制和选择优化的开发方案提供科学依据。
它对于研究剩余油分布,促进我国相当部分已进入高含水后期老油田的高产、稳产具有重要意义。大庆油田早就开始了油藏数值模拟系统的建设,但是在原有系统平
台下运行油藏数值模拟系统存在效率不高、资源投入的性价比不理想等问题,更换新的系统平台势在必行。



相对于其他专有操作系统,Linux的开放性为科研人员带来软件研制的极大方便。而且Linux集群以其功能强大可靠、成本低、跨平台运行等特点,非常适
合应用于大规模油藏数值模拟计算。大庆油田在确定选用Linux系统后,对国内主流的Linux产品进行了综合的分析。红帽企业Linux产品凭借良好的
可扩展性、全面的服务支持能力、性价比高等优点脱颖而出。红帽与合作伙伴庆联公司一起,根据大庆油田的实际需求,充分调动资源为其提供了全面解决方案和服
务。



大庆用户表示:“面对世界油价不断升高的局面,我们要确保自身的不断发展就要通过有效地手段来降低成本。选用红帽企业Linux产品应用于我们的油藏数值
模拟系统项目,是由Linux系统的性价比、开放性、稳定性等优异性能决定的,同时Linux系统良好的兼容性在系统迁移时可以保护我们的现有投资,有利
于我们将系统广泛推广。当然,红帽公司能提供的卓越的技术支持服务也是影响我们选择的重要因素。相信凭借双方的精诚合作,我们的项目会取得成功并为进一步
的合作奠定基础。”



红帽公司大中华区总经理陈实说:“大庆油田在油藏数值模拟系统项目中应用红帽的企业Linux产品,不仅说明了红帽企业Linux产品已经获得石油企业的
认可,而且对红帽以后在国内拓展和扩大石油行业的市场也是有示范和推广意义的。”
