When working with color blends of any type, it is best practice to interpret directly in GeoTeric to maintain quality and color intensity. As third-party software differs, quality and visualization will often be impacted following blend transfer. However, we do understand there is often a requirem...
The release of GeoTeric 2018.1.2 is out now - download the update today to gain access to its latest features. Key improvements include updates to the Link for Petrel, making the transfer of data quicker and easier for you to complete your workflows with GeoTeric.
With the upcoming release of GeoTeric 2018.1, a variety of enhancements to the Adaptive Interpretation tools will be added. This is 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.
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. This allows for an efficient method of interpretation.
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.
The GeoTeric 2017.2 release not only included the release of the Adaptive Faults as part of our Adaptive Interpretation System, but also the ability to load and visualise data in floating point. The ability to load geophysical volumes such as Vp/Vs and Acoustic Impedance volumes with their original values allows interpreters to extend their subsurface analysis capabilities in GeoTeric.
GeoTeric’s Adaptive Fault Interpretation provides a fast and accurate interpretation system which improves the efficiency of your fault interpretation.
The Adaptive Faults are data following fault sticks, which snap to discontinuities in reflectivity data, attributes or CMY Blends. With just 2 clicks of the mouse you can have an accurate fault stick. The Graph Theory looks at how similar the attribute, or break in the seismic data is from the background and determines the best route from first click to where the cursor is located.
To start interpreting the faults, click on the Interpret module (figure 1) or right click in the 3D scene and select Adaptive Faults. Either option will bring up the main Interpretation menu in the 3D scene.
GeoTeric 2017.2 continues to expand on our Adaptive Interpretation system by introducing Adaptive Fault Interpretation.
GeoTeric’s Fault Expression is an intuitive and flexible tool that allows the user to produce fault attributes, blends and detect volumes in one simple workflow. By providing a range of different parameters, the results can be optimized for any size or style of fault. In this blog post, we will go through the process for successfully producing all of the products available in Fault Expression. Later posts will focus on optimizing for different types of faults.
