|Paradigm geologic interpretation applications offer cross-section, surface and 3D restorations for the purpose of unravelling geological history.|
|2D cross-section restoration is used to restore 2D seismic interpretations in places where the seismic signal is poor, in order to validate interpretation. It is also used to validate in the main direction of deformation in a 3D interpretation prior to full 3D volume restoration.
2D surface restoration entails flattening a 3D horizon, while keeping the surface area constant and minimizing deformation. This tool allows the validation of fault contact geometry and fold geometry. Multi-surface restoration can be used to understand the evolution of the basin, in particular of salt geometry.
3D restoration makes use of the SKUA unstructured mesh and associated UVT Transform® to easily perform 3D restoration of the current model using a geo-mechanical finite element technique. Removing the need to construct a series of finite element models, each layer of the 3D model can be sequentially un-compacted and automatically un-eroded. Along with the restoration of the 3D structural model, a basin grid can be restored to create a 4D basin grid, in order to study basin maturity and fluid migrations.
