Validate complex models.
LithoTect software includes tools to validate the plausibility of structural interpretations. Build detailed structural and stratigraphic frameworks for complicated geology using geometry reconstruction, structural restoration, and balancing techniques, then verify that structural interpretations are physically possible using restoration and balancing techniques.
Understand complex structures.
Use LithoTect software’s advanced structural analysis techniques to interpret and build statistically meaningful geologic models constrained by geologic principles. Build a geologically accurate representation of subsurface structure using conformance tools appropriate for the rock type and tectonic setting. Define dip and curvature attributes that influence reservoir properties, such as fractures, permeability, and porosity. Use forward modeling techniques, including decompaction, isostacy, and rift subsidence analysis, to model the geologic processes that control sediment deposition, structural evolution, burial history, hydrocarbon migration pathways, and accumulation zones.
Improve reservoir development decisions.
LithoTect software delivers structural modeling and validation that can significantly improve the accuracy of subsurface models in complicated geology. With more structurally accurate models of the subsurface, specialists and asset teams can better evaluate exploration risk and make better decisions about reservoir development.
