SKUA-GOCAD Facies Modeling

For a geologically realistic reservoir model.

SKUA-GOCAD™ Facies Modeling offers tools and algorithms to develop geologically realistic 3D models of depositional facies, post-depositional features and rock types. Integrated with SKUA-GOCAD Reservoir Properties and used in combination with SKUA-GOCAD Data and Trend Analysis, Facies Modeling includes a flexible object-based stochastic simulation algorithm (Boolx), an efficient multiple-point simulation (MPS) algorithm (IMPALA*) and an advanced plurigaussian simulation algorithm.
Developed in collaboration with Ephesia Consult

Facies Modeling benefits: 

  • A toolbox of facies modeling algorithms enables the construction of geologically realistic reservoir models that honor geological concepts, wells and seismically derived constraints.
  • User-built geological bodies can be used to reproduce any geological concept through a fast, object-based, stochastic simulation.
  • Geological realism, controlled reservoir connectivity and very large models with an efficient MPS algorithm.
  • Preserved inter-facies relationships with the advanced plurigaussian simulation algorithm and its associated flexible facies truncation diagram  
  • The breadth and flexibility of the available options allow an efficient investigation of alternative geological scenarios.

Facies Modeling features:

  • An advanced plurigaussian simulation method to reproduce inter-facies relationships and post-depositional features while respecting conditioning data, spatially varying proportions and correlation trends
  • ​Interactive and convenient Truncation Diagram Editor to define facies truncation rules that will be used in the plurigaussian simulation. Define facies zones manually or automatically from conditioning data.
  • An efficient, parallelized MPS using (non-stationary) 2D or 3D training images
  • A fast, generic, object-based simulation using pre- or user-defined geological shapes in which all object parameters can vary spatially.
  • A paintbrush utility to interactively draw bodies observed on the seismic data, or to paint geological facies for use as individual objects or as training images.
  • An interactive 3D geological object designer to create individual objects or as training images
