PARIS – CGG GeoSoftware has launched EarthModel FT 9.5, the latest version of its geological modeling software that combines well and seismic data for a better understanding of the reservoir.
Users can determine reservoir properties such as lithofacies, porosity and permeability, for more accurate modeling results. EarthModel FT combines surface mapping, integrated structural modeling, reservoir property modeling and upscaling all in one package, with direct output to most flow simulators.
The new version offers sandboxes where users can independently explore alternative interpretation scenarios and store them separately from the main project, CGG Geosoftware said. Changes can be incorporated collaboratively into the central database in real-time, allowing for information sharing.
Additional enhancements for creating 3D geological grids include an updated algorithm for improved vertical layering, which the company said minimizes the number of layers needed to make a consistent grid model for use in inversion workflows, driving better model definition and faster inversion results. Users can access velocity data with the results from GeoSoftware’s velocity modeling product, VelPro, which stores data in the shared wells database.
