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
All Epos™-based applications enable interoperability with third-party data stores, including:
