Modeling from Multiple Sources
Create Framebuilder™ surfaces from virtually any source. The
interpreter can model data from WellBase data or from SeisVision™
horizons and faults for dynamic, on-the-fly interpretations.
Surfaces sourced from IsoMap™ grids or data points integrate XYZ
data from any internal or external data source.
3D Surface Offset Modeling
- Segregate and independently model a project into, and truncate
well picks against a fault plane
- With the smartSECTION® 3D model, automatically
calculate fault plane offset values and the resulting geometries,
and adjust fault offset estimates to honor vertical separation
Sequence Stratigraphic Model Building
- Detect formation-to-unconformity surface intersections and trim
the appropriate portion of the formation surface based on
predetermined age relationships configured within the Stratigraphic
- For a competitive advantage in prospecting, identify subtle
trap geometries and play trends with modeled subcrop and structural
- To obtain cross section views of previously unseen interwell
geometries and stratigraphic relationships, utilize projected
sections to cut through the 3D geomodel
Framebuilder™ Model Visualization
- As interpretations occur in cross section views, visualize and
dynamically update Framebuilder's unconformable, surface-to-surface
and fault-to-surface intersections (when used with
GeoGraphix advanced 3D visualization)
- As data is added and interpreted within the 3D geomodel
context, easily visualize fault geometries in map view and
interactively edit in both map and cross section views. To enhance
understanding of reservoir geometries and attributes, integrate
IsoMap™ attribute grids and smartSECTION's well-based, interpreted
- For a competitive advantage in prospecting, identify previously
overlooked interwell trap geometries and play trends with modeled
subcrop and structural relationships
Rapid, Subsurface Interpretation and Model
Exploration geologists can accelerate workflows within a highly
integrated environment of synchronized map and cross-section views.
Surface modeling and framework-building architecture supports
interpretation in the context of a 3D geomodel.
Geoscientists pick tops and faults in smartSECTION® and build
multi-surface frameworks with accurate, intersecting geometries.
Each change to the interpretation (i.e., when a top is added or
edited) triggers a multi-surface framework update, offering the
interpreter instantaneous feedback in map and cross-section views.
This highly interactive and iterative feedback from the live
geomodel ensures additional accuracy in interpretation.
Superior Structure Mapping and Forecasting
Use of this powerful, multi-surface conformance technology
facilitates deep-basin prospecting. The conformance mapping tool
permits the instantaneous creation of structurally accurate, target
surfaces for unconventional plays and enables the projection of
structural information found in shallow subsurface to deeper
horizons. Well-sampled, shallow surfaces serve as suitable
constraining surfaces, allowing the conformance tool to add
formation-to-formation thickness maps for deep structure modeling
and prediction on surfaces with few control points. A feature such
as this enhances the understanding of stratigraphic geometries in
the interwell space away from shallow well control.
GeoGraphix Framebuilder™ technology is built upon an advanced
topology engine which allows rapid surface-to-surface intersection
detection. Intersection detection facilitates surface-to-surface
truncation and trimming operations useful in 3D structural and
stratigraphic model building. Combine both well data and seismic
data sources to model a surface comprehensively and completely and
to integrate with other, geological and geophysical applications.
Easily integrate mapped surfaces in cross section views and quickly
refine stratigraphic and fault geometries.
