Rapid Generation of Fault Sticks from an Existing Adaptive Fault Interpretation

GeoTeric’s Adaptive Fault Interpretation is a powerful data driven and interpreter guided method of structural interpretation. Since the Graph Theory algorithm is used by the Adaptive Interpretation System to generate data following results, not many fault sticks are required to generate an accurate fault plane in GeoTeric, allowing for an efficient method of interpretation.

Steering your analysis in the right direction

Dip and Azimuth volumes are used in several ways in GeoTeric, from processes such as Noise Cancellation (SO FMH & SO Noise filters) to attribute generation (SO Semblance, SO Dip Derivative, SO Discontinuity, Flexure, etc...). The majority of these filters/attributes have the symbol SO in front of them, indicating they are Structurally Oriented.  In GeoTeric, structurally oriented indicates that Dip and Azimuth volumes are needed to steer the filters/attributes along the regional geological trends of the input cube to give an improved result.  The use of steering volumes guides the filters in the direction of the geology rather than the grid or in the direction of the noise in the volume. In this blog post, an example of Noise Cancellation is used to show the importance of choosing the correct steering volumes for your purpose.

Tips for Enhancing your data in GeoTeric

As part of GeoTeric’s Data Conditioning workflow, the Spectral Expression Tool is used to shape your spectrum to increase the frequency content in your data in order to improve the vertical resolution of your data.

How to optimise frequencies in a RGB colour blend

RGB Blends of Frequency Decomposition results are very powerful in revealing fine details of the subsurface, but the amount of information that can be extracted from such blends depends on which band-limited response magnitude volumes are used as an input. Selection of the right frequencies depends on the interval, amount of detail and objective of the analysis.

Using Curvature in GeoTeric 

The Flexure attribute in GeoTeric is a mean curvature attribute, it measures the amount of deformation on a surface.  The Flexure attribute is a second order measurement and therefore is not affected by the local orientation of the surface.  Where the reflectors are steeply dipping or flat, the Flexure value is very low, the Flexure value will be greatest where the reflectors are deformed, for example at a fault break.

Using Interactive Fault Slicing to visualise Seismic Attributes on a Fault Surface

GeoTeric's Adaptive Fault workflow has been developed to produce rapid and accurate fault interpretations. This workflow makes use of GeoTeric's Noise Expression to produce the cleanest possible input data, Fault Expression to capture all fault information in one blend, and Adaptive Faults to provide the most intuitive fault interpretation experience. One tool that can add extra value at the end of this workflow is the Interactive Fault Slicing, which allows rapid comparison of responses across a fault plane.

A Differential Approach to Revealing Thin Beds

As part of GeoTeric's Cognitive Interpretation workflow, Spectral Enhancement is an important Data Conditioning stage allowing the user to get the most out of post stack seismic data prior to the Reveal stage, especially when it comes to investigating thin beds. A variety of methods can be used to enhance the vertical resolution of seismic data using GeoTeric. This blog post will highlight one of the less commonly used methods discussed in McArdle and Paton (2014).

Colour Blends and Iso-Proportional Slicing Attributes

GeoTeric's Iso-Proportional Slicing tool allows the interpreter to create iso-slices between horizons in a proportional or conformant manner to quickly gain a better understanding of the geology. Either volumes or colour blends can be used for input. A set of attributes are calculated within the slices and displayed as maps of the horizons. When we talk about reflection seismic data, most users can explain these attribute, such as e.g. Maximum +ve (Positive) Amplitude and RMS Energy. However, we frequently get the question: How are these attributes calculated in a colour blend and what do they mean?
