Validate – new Module!
GeoTeric’s Master Project functionality allows the user to transfer data from a Master Project containing all key data, into a Client Project which can be worked on individually. It also allows for project items such as horizons and faults to be seamlessly transferred between Client Projects.
The Master Project will be available with the release of GeoTeric 2018.1
With the upcoming release of GeoTeric 2018.1, a variety of enhancements to the Adaptive Interpretation tools will be added, in addition to a Master Project option, a Report View and the release of the Validate module.
One of the interpretation enhancements in GeoTeric 2018.1 will be the ability to edit horizons in the Base Map by polygon – either those picked previously in GeoTeric or newly picked in the Base Map. The polygons can be used to fill horizon interpretations or delete them.
One of the least known features within GeoTeric is the option for importing multiple well deviation files at once. This can be used for rapidly loading data from mature fields that may already have significant well control. This feature is built into the normal well loading process and is easy to use. The key to rapidly loading multiple deviation files, is that all files must be in the same directory and must have the same format. Single cell values, such as well name, must be in the same location, and all data must be in the same columns in all files.
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.
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.
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.
