Blueback Project Management Toolbox

The Blueback Project Management Toolbox provides tools for making it easier to manage data objects inside a Petrel project.

Improve data management with Blueback Project Management Toolbox


The Blueback Toolbox suite contains close to 100 tools complementing standard Petrel. The tools speed up and improve geoscientists' daily workflows, covering the geology, geophysics, geomodeling and the reservoir engineering domains, in addition to assisting the Petrel user with a series of tools for better management of Petrel projects. 

With the Blueback Project Management Toolbox you can save time by organizing and cleaning up your projects, and through better disc usage and data consistency with other projects.

The integration with the Blueback Project Tracker makes it possible for data managers to give Petrel users advice on how to keep their data consistent and up to date.


The functionality features range from tools for making changes on multiple Petrel data objects, tools for searching for Petrel projects and content, and data import/export with support for various formats.
