CoViz 4D
Visual, Quantitative Data Integration

CoViz 4D provides rapid, easy access to complex, multiple 3D and 4D (time-varying) datasets, enabling enhanced decision making and risk reduction through data integration, visualization, and advanced 4D workflows. The available algorithms and workflows are powerful and flexible, and can be used for diverse surface and subsurface challenges in the energy industry and other geospatial applications. Specific modules are available for improving reservoir performance through 4D seismic data integration.

Home page slide WellArchitect
Plan and Drill with Confidence

Developed in conjunction with Baker Hughes Company, our advanced well planning and survey management system enables integrated planning and drilling of directional wellpaths with or without earth models. WellArchitect seamlessly accommodates the needs of field development, sidetracking, multi-laterals, and re-entry drilling, both in the office and at the wellsite. The unique 3D visualization capabilities of Dynamic Graphics bring a new perspective to these complex subsurface challenges.

Home page slide EarthVision
Streamline Your 3D Model Building

The EarthVision Workflow Manager enables rapid and intuitive building and updating of precise 3D models, including fluid contacts, salt domes, diapirs, and complexly faulted structures. These models allow for more precise well positioning, improved reservoir characterization and additional analysis.

Oil and Gas Collision Avoidance: Well Planning in 3D

Planning a trajectory can be challenging in an open field, but when a drilling facility has dozens of existing wells, clearing high-pressured offsets can add extra complexity. For this North Sea operator with access to Dynamic Graphics’ WellArchitect software, the...

Monitoring CO2 Injection Volumes in the Subsurface—The Sleipner Field

Subsurface CO2 injection and storage is a proven technology for keeping carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere and helping to achieve net zero goals. However, robust monitoring of the injection process is critical to ensure and verify that there is no leakage or...

Well Location Optimization with Visual and Quantitative Analysis

An onshore team was tasked with producing a list of potential well landing locations based on attributes in a geological model. Four pad locations in the field were each given a set of 12 wells arranged in a radial pattern; the model’s potential target area covered a...

4D Seismic Assisted History Matching—Closing the Loop in Reservoir Simulation

The traditional technique of manually adjusting reservoir simulation models to achieve a history match is time consuming and problematic at best; adding 4D seismic data to the equation only increases the complexity of the task. The inclusion of 4D seismic, however,...

Forward Seismic Modeling in a North Sea Reservoir

Improved, flexible and faster access to critical data is vital for fully informed decision making in today’s multidisciplinary asset development teams. It is also imperative to include the highest fidelity quantitative temporal data when building reservoir models to...

Flight Planning and Route Analysis Via 4D Scene Building

The state-of-the-art CoViz 4D software from Dynamic Graphics is extremely powerful for data ingestion/integration, and quantitative spatiotemporal visualization across multiple data types. These unique capabilities are already leveraged by users across many...

Who We Are

Dynamic Graphics, Inc. partners with our clients to solve spatial analysis problems in the petroleum, environmental, and earth-related sciences. Over the past five decades, we have been the premier provider of geospatial solutions with our innovative, easy-to-use software and outstanding support services.

We offer three separate packages: CoViz® 4D, WellArchitect®, and EarthVision®. While each is a standalone product, serving a different purpose in the hydrocarbon development workflow, when used in conjunction, they provide a collaborative multidisciplinary environment that offers dramatic benefits.
