Structural Restoration Print E-mail

Present-day structure is only part of the interpretation process. In petroleum development or exploration, interpreters of 2D/3D seismic data and surface and well data define the structures. 3D-GEO validates and corrects these structures with modern structural models, from both extensional and compressional tectonic settings. We apply Geomorpher, Lithotect from Geologic Systems (or client versions of 2DMove or 3DMove, Geosec2D or Geosec 3D) to restore individual seismic lines and validate the interpretation, unravelling the structural, depositional and petroleum history. Tools used within this process also include PSDM, SCAT, 3D fault prediction and horizon propagation, fracture prediction, decompaction, log analysis and 3D geochemistry.
