COVIZ 4D
4D Visual Analytics and Data Integration

COVIZ 4D leads the industry in providing a quantitative visual environment for reservoir management and 4D seismic analysis. Understanding the changing response of a reservoir over time is critical for optimizing production and development decisions. CoViz 4D makes it possible for multi-disciplinary users to simultaneously view and interrogate datasets from throughout the asset development team—regardless of the original data source. Understanding through data fusion—powerful in 3D—increases enormously when used in 4D: The unique temporal functionality in CoViz 4D allows users to visualize how development decisions affect reservoirs through time.

Data Used with Permission of Owner.
CoViz 4D Features Include:
  • Concurrent visualization of earth models, reservoir simulation grids, production data, seismic data,
    gravity ⁄ magnetic data, property models, well logs, and non-spatial data
  • Data Registry module for data organization and imports
  • Direct-read of a wide-variety of industry standard data formats
  • Integrated quantitative & statistical tools for detailed temporal data analysis
  • Seismic history match opportunities with synthetic seismic generation
  • Viewer-integrated Time-to-Depth conversions
  • Integrated Wellpath Designer (IWD) for on-the-fly well plans
  • Seamless operation between Linux® and Windows® (native 32 & 64-bit)
  • Concurrent visualization of earth models, reservoir simulation grids, production data, seismic data,
    gravity ⁄ magnetic data, property models, well logs, and non-spatial data
  • Scalable data visualization on or off line, from the laptop to the visualization center

WELLARCHITECT
Advanced Directional Well Planning ⁄ Survey Management

WELLARCHITECT, developed in conjunction with Baker Hughes Company, is an advanced well planning and survey management system for integrated planning and drilling of directional wellpaths with or without earth models. WellArchitect seamlessly accomodates the needs of field development, sidetracking, multi-laterals, and re-entry drilling, both in the office and at the wellsite.

Data Courtesy of RMOTC and US DOE.
Features of WellArchitect Include:
  • Planning of well profiles from vertical to extended reach and complex 3D geometries
  • Single wellpath survey calculation to multi-wellsite, multi-well planning ⁄ drilling
  • Positional uncertainty calculations, including ISCWSA standard tool error models
  • Survey data entry ⁄ management, distance-from-plan analysis, easy project-ahead planning module
  • Collision-risk analysis, including revolutionary 3D representation of “available space” for
    collision avoidance, when used with CoViz 4D
  • Interactive traveling cylinder diagrams during planning and drilling
  • 2D and 3D target creation and evaluation based on positional uncertainty
  • Interactive 3D visualization that can show the full drilling and operational context, including geologic models
  • Wellpath -fault and -horizon proximity and intersection monitoring
  • Database management, and fully customizable report generation

EARTHVISION
3D Modeling & Visualization

EARTHVISION is renowned for its ability to quickly provide accurate and reliable 3D models, even in the most structurally complex areas. An EarthVision model enables more precise well positioning and improved reservoir characterization and environmental analysis.

EarthVision Includes:
  • Workflow Manager for intuitive step-by-step 3D structural modeling building
  • 3D property modeling including EarthVision’s breakthrough geometric restoration technique
  • Fault restoration methodology that allows for better understanding of depositional history and
    clearer insight into efficiently exploiting the reservoir
  • Documentable and repeatable volumetric calculation workflows
  • Traditional mapping tools (base and contour maps, cross sections, and 3D fence diagrams)
  • 3D Viewer for visualizing structure models, cell grids, wellpaths, logs, and more
  • Optional Geostatistics module
  • Geocellular grids produced with our optional Cellular Gridding component (shown below)

Cellular Gridding

The EarthVision Cellular Gridding® module converts an EarthVision structure or property model into a cellular-grid format compatible for input to reservoir upscaling and simulation programs. Using an algorithm optimized for faults, evcell calculates cellular reservoir grids that accurately portray the structure and ⁄ or property in the original 3D model.
