Geophysics Module

The Geophysics component provides the core functionality for displaying, interpreting, analyzing, and modeling a wide range of geophysical data. Seismic data sets of any size and quantity can be interpreted in the Seismic Interpretation module. Complex velocity models incorporating any geophysical and geological data can be built in the Velocity Modeling module. Well-ties and AVO/AVA analysis can be performed in the Seismic Analysis module. And seismic attribute analysis and assisted interpretation can be performed in the Attributes and Automated Fault Interpretation (AFI) modules. All this work can be performed in the DecisionSpace® 365 multi-user, unified visualization workspace where asset teams can collaborate more effectively to evaluate and develop assets.

Seismic Interpretation 

The Seismic Interpretation component provides core seismic interpretation workflows for mapping subsurface geology. The suite of tools enables interpretation of even the most complex geological environments including multi-z structures such as areas of thrust-faults and salt-intrusions. The application enables integrated 2D and 3D seismic interpretation with no limits on the number or size of surveys. Multi-user workflows, from visualization through interpretation, and advanced multi-attribute analysis, enable teams to collaborate efficiently.

Velocity Modeling

The Velocity Modeling component is designed to build models that incorporate raw, edited, and interpreted data, as well as existing velocity model information, to create geologically sound velocity models that can function even in the most structurally complex geologic regions. The velocity modelling workflow includes industry leading QC and uncertainty analysis tools which incorporate; well & inter-well data, 2D & 3D seismic data, checkshot & VSP data, and surface & fault data, all integrated within the DecisionSpace® 365 environment of 1D, 2D, 3D, histogram, crossplot, and spreadsheet views.

Seismic Analysis

The Seismic Analysis component is designed to provide the interpreter with advanced geophysical workflows for quantifying and qualifying subsurface challenges. Included among the high-end workflows that make up the Seismic Analysis toolkit are; advanced well-tie, automated seismic balance, prestack seismic and VSP visualization, AVO/AVA analysis and, and prestack seismic horizon auto-picking and analysis.

Seismic Attributes & Automated Fault Interpretation

The Seismic Attributes component provides functionality to calculate complex seismic attributes as well as performing additional postprocessing signal enhancements. Since seismic attributes remain a reliable geophysical approach to understanding subtle subsurface characteristics and features, this module provides a comprehensive range of poststack volume attribute calculations as well as volume math comparisons and time-depth domain conversions. Landmark's automated fault detection technology provides a solution to interpreting high-quality seismic data quickly and more efficiently. The software offers a complete fault interpretation solution with workflows that help decrease picking time and improve accuracy. It can automatically interpret and virtually study all faults in a seismic volume and provides tools to adjust and improve the final results.

Geological Interpretation Module

The Geological interpretation component provides the core functionality for displaying and interpreting a wide range of geological data. The display customization, well templates and well notes aid efficient collaboration and multi-user workflows whilst the comprehensive set of tools facilitates the rapid correlation of wellbore data to identify well tops and build a thorough understanding of the subsurface stratigraphy. This can be further refined by integrating data from different disciplines, such as displaying horizons in correlation view, and using advanced tools such as wellbore intersection, log calculator and zone analysis of rock composition and production data.

Earth Modeling

Earth Modeling software ensures asset teams share a consistent understanding of the subsurface, providing extensive geo-modeling capabilities within a complete geoscience work environment where they can analyse current data and rework scenarios before, during and after development.

Reservoir Properties

Framework-based interpretation workflows help interpreters identify and fix problems while interpreting. Dynamically updateable frameworks and reservoir properties of the DecisionSpace® software allow inputs from new well to be immediately incorporated, which keeps the overall geologic model evergreen and ready for successive workflows. This ensures efficient, collaborative, and trustworthy models.

Well Planning Module

DecisionSpace® Well Planning software helps asset teams keep pace with ambitious drilling schedules in complex offshore developments and in unconventional plays which often involves planning hundreds of horizontal wells. This software helps reduce well planning cycles by leveraging advanced automation techniques to quickly plan any combination of targets, pad, or platform locations, and well trajectories for single wells, relief wells, and field development scenarios.

Drop Build Align Trajectory (S+J)

This key feature represents one of the horizontal well trajectories that is commonly used in unconventional developments. Often referred to as S+J shape, this trajectory profile is a directional driller friendly build for horizontal well plan. With this trajectory, the planning engineers will be able to move planned targets and the well spacing will be automatically calculated. The planning engineer can also adjust the trajectory nudge (initial kick-off depth and build/drop rate), then drop to vertical to the point for the final build that is aligned to the heel target and the horizontal direction. This directional drilling requirement for unconventional wells provides the means to simulate a more simplistic and realistic directional drilling work.

Footage Calls

Footage Calls are a requirement in land lease based well planning. They are a way of describing surveyed positions of sites, wellhead and/or proposed target locations relative to specific boundaries. These measured locations are defined as the X and Y distances from a selected lease corner. The software automatically calculates the footage calls when at least one existing boundary is defined for the well planning scenario in the preferences section. The relevant object (site, plan, or target) must be located within such a boundary, although the boundary and footage calls can be used to initialize a specific location. The footage calls can also be directly entered and edited to match survey location that may not have Lat/Long or XY coordinates.

Field Summary Anti-Collision

In our latest release, the previously used ‘Cone of Error’ model has been replaced by industry standard anti-collision recommendations. The anti-collision capability within the Well Planning software now supports the ‘Pedal Curve’ and the ‘Combined Pedal Curve’ error models. In addition, it features separation factor calculation, provides three warning levels that are graphically represented in a well path color scheme and provides a minimum separation scan summary result. This field summary anti-collision feature is based on ISCWSA standards.

Gun Barrel View

Gun barrel is a special section view with a User Interface (UI) component that allows you to select well planning scenarios and set of parameters to be displayed within a gun barrel view. This UI is presented in the form of a wizard. Once the scenarios are selected, it will open each one, compute an appropriate Line of Section (LOS) for it, and open a new section view with that LOS. The drawing module of the gun barrel adds specific graphics to the view. This is a regular section view and can display all the regular data, such as surfaces, frameworks, seismic, faults, etc. The user can add the session data that they wish to display and set the display parameters appropriately.

Base Module

The DecisionSpace® 365 Base Module provides a common visualization and interpretation workspace, along with features leveraged across workflows and modules within the DecisionSpace environment. The Base Module also includes the GIS module, which helps you visualize, analyse and interpret data to execute collaborative workflows, including data access and analysis, calculation capabilities, project notation and cataloguing.
