Productivity without Compromise - High Technology Value with Every Interpretation – A single canvas for fast track interpretation and prospect ranking of a regional dataset
Bruno de Ribet
Seismic interpreters routinely deal with projects that integrate regional-scale 2D surveys, huge merged 3D volumes, and thousands of wells for prospect identification, ranking and validation. Consequently, the selection of the right technical solution is a business critical decision for oil and gas companies. Learn how the Paradigm interpretation solution incorporates breakthrough technologies (GPU-based voxel rendering), a rich diversity of data (including pre-stack data) and workflows that efficiently handle the progressive increases in data volume while still easily accommodating daily interpretation tasks.

Deeper Insight into the Subsurface: Take Control of your Reservoir Model, Bring your Concepts to Life - Constraining facies models away from wells
Facies are probably the single most important reservoir properties to be characterized accurately. They form the internal architecture of the reservoir. Not only do they determine hydrocarbons in-place by defining pay versus non-reservoir rocks and by constraining porosity and fluid distributions, they also control fluid flow by describing barriers and high permeability streaks; facies capture the connectivity and tortuosity of the reservoir. For a reservoir model to be predictive it must be geologically realistic, it is not just a stochastic model, but must reproduce geological concepts: the geologist’s understanding of the subsurface. It must also be reliable away from the well data, constrained by both seismic data (if available) and geological constraints.
This lunch and learn presentation will demonstrate various methods to derive 3D facies probabilities combining wells, seismic, and geological concepts which, when used in connection with the appropriate geostatistical techniques, lead to robust, geologically meaningful reservoir models.
