Structural Analysis & Modeling for the Most Complex Geologic Environments

Interpreting and modeling plays in complex geology, such as fold and thrust belts, extensional, strike-slip, and salt deformation regions presents unique challenges. LithoTect® structural modeling software provides tools to validate complex subsurface models, LithoTect software lets users build more accurate models of complicated geology.

Leveraging geometry reconstruction, structural restoration, and balancing techniques, LithoTect software can help validate the plausibility of complex structural interpretations. These technologies help geoscientists quantify fracture densities and distributions, analyze fault sealing characteristics, and model burial history, hydrocarbon migration pathways, and accumulations zones. Results can be particularly valuable in lowering the risk and cost of complex plays in deepwater, sub-salt, and unconventional resources.
