Auditable volumetrics for fast and effective evaluation of hydrocarbon resources Within the newest release 2018.2, GeoTeric is enhancing the exploration workflow by introducing a ‘Volumetrics’ tool which allows calculation of oil and gas resource estimates at any point during horizon interpretation ...
One of the most popular applications of GeoTeric’s Reveal module is the Fault Expression. Its example driven framework enables rapid optimisation and co-visualisation (CMY blending) of three independent edge attributes ensuring that faults of different sizes and seismic expressions are identified and detected with confidence.
A great value of the Fault Expression tool is that the effects of the different parameters can be immediately assessed: there is no need for extensive testing and comparisons, because after adjusting the filter footprints, the resulting changes are seen in the preview window. However, there is a set of parameters, which are hard wired and cannot be changed. These are the fault enhancement filters, mentioned in fine print in the Detect tab of Fault Expression. Switching between the different preview swatches, we see that the detected faults are different, even without changing the detection filter parameters. So, what do these numbers in the brackets mean?
GeoTeric allows seamless connectivity to your existing interpretation platform through GeoTeric’s core Interpret module. The links included with GeoTeric are: Link for Petrel1 and the Link to DecisionSpace2. A Link for Paleoscan3 is available as a separate module.
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.
