Visualizing Open Hole Data for Multi-Disciplinary Teams

Understanding formation integrity and reservoir conditions are critical for success with open hole completions.

Understanding formation integrity and reservoir conditions are critical for success with open hole completions. CoViz 4D visualizations such as this can help.

Open hole data is a primary dataset used by all geoscience and engineering disciplines in the O&G industry. It serves many purposes including geologic correlation and facies analysis, geophysical calibration, petrophysical interpretation, reservoir parameter definition, definition of productive intervals, well design, and well targeting. All of these functions are critical to the understanding of an O&G asset.
To have the clearest picture of the asset, every member of the team places the open hole data into software unique to their particular discipline. But using discipline-specific software can create potential problems with efficient team collaboration and the overall goal of complete exploitation of an asset. Placing every discipline’s unique solutions/interpretations into a single, visual, geospatial application can enable all disciplines to easily view their teammates’ work (cross-correlated with their own) which can help everyone to identify possible problems and opportunities. CoViz 4D is uniquely suited to the efficient integration of disparate models/interpretations/data and includes powerful visualization of all information in a single 4D geospatial environment.

Need for Data Integration and 3D Co-visualization

Information acquired during open hole logging enhances the understanding of geological conditions and supports more confident petrophysical interpretations. Software that integrates all the various subsurface data types through 3D co-visualization of open hole, core, geologic models, and seismic data can facilitate collaborative analysis by the reservoir development team. With these capabilities, individual disciplines have access to the other discipline’s relevant data and can discover subtle cross-correlations with their own data. This is important for two significant reasons: 1) it can help with the identification of potential abnormalities in data, and give insight into the log normalization processes; 2) it can also provide information on new opportunities for resource exploitation.

Visualizing Open Hole Data with CoViz 4D

CoViz 4D provides a single software solution to a wide range of subsurface data. It provides a powerful integration and co-visualization platform for information from varying disciplines in a single geospatial environment. The software easily integrates a wide range of log data to provide information access to every team member, fostering collaboration, and communication. CoViz 4D also provides the ability to display multiple well logs, allowing development teams to assess geological and petrophysical variations across a field and provides a user-defined scale feature for different data types.
A successful development project relies on its data. Accurate analysis of logging data is critical in understanding subsurface characteristics and determining the direction of the project. CoViz 4D excels in open hole data integration and visualization, assisting engineers with estimation and forecasting reservoir potential and helping them make cost-effective decisions.

CoViz 4D, a data visualization analytics software from Dynamic Graphics, Inc., gives engineers the ability to easily access, interpret, and visualize open hole data associated with petroleum assets. Powerful visualization capabilities enable you to explore data relationships, calculate and show inferred data, and analyze how data changes over time, allowing your team to confidently make decisions on the field that positively impact profit and reduce operational risk.
