EarthVision Geocellular Module
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, the EarthVision Cellular Gridding program calculates cellular reservoir grids that accurately portray the structure and ⁄ or property in the original 3D model. The cellular 3D grid then provides the framework for calculating and predicting the flow of fluids within the reservoir. Unlike an EarthVision 3D grid, which has all of its grid lines parallel and orthogonal (thereby usually crossing structural and property features), a cellular grid is created so that its grid lines align to the major structural components of the model such as the faults and horizons.
- a quick, easy workflow for generating new geocellular grids in minutes, not days
- precise cell modeling to handle complex fault geometries with ease
- numerous upscaling options, including arithmetic, geometric, harmonic, and power mean, plus hybrid schema for heterogeneous properties such as permeability
- industry-standard export formats including Eclipse™, RESCUE™, VIP™, CMG™, GRIDGENR™, and more
- visualization of inputs and outputs within the familiar 3D Viewer environment
