Advantages of Real Time Geological Interpretation

Real Time Saves Money

Problem: If you identify a problem with the geological interpretation in your 3D modeling software you need to return to your 2D well log correlation software to fix the problem. After fixing the correlation you have to regrid the horizons in your mapping software before returning to the 3D modeling software in order to observe the changes. Updating interpretations in this manner can take hours to days to complete, and is tediously repetitive.

Solution: Using Recon's unique Real Time 3D interpretation environment, interpretation changes are made instantaneously. Recon's Real Time interpretation saves you money.

Current 3D modeling applications are not capable of rendering Real Time results because they were not specifically designed as geological interpretation tools.

Recon addresses the shortcomings of 3D modeling tools by transferring many of its functions into Recon’s Real Time 3D geological interpretation environment.

This eliminates the need for you to continuously generate multiple 3D models to account for changes to your interpretation.

 

Real Time Improves Quality

horizontal wells AUThe unprecedented speed of interaction in Recon has been achieved through the development and implementation of next-generation technologies, including surface modeling algorithms that are up to 50 times faster than industry-standard applications, and the innovative use of fully scalable 2D and 3D graphics powered by OpenGL graphics acceleration.

Recon enables you to visualize and interpret thousands of vertical and horizontal wells in a single project.

Solution: By dramatically speeding up your geological interpretation workflow using Recon's Cascade Technology™, Recon enables you to apply the time savings to improving the quality of your interpretation, thus lowering your exploration and development costs.

 

3D Interpretation Leads to Better Business Decisions

Recon’s 3D Foundation Solves Real Problems

Problem: Current geological interpretation tools on the market are based on 2D principles. 3D visualization is implemented as an afterthought or is introduced during the 3D geological modeling phase, where it is often performed by expert 3D modelers or reservoir engineers instead of interpreting geoscientists.

production data and seismic MESolution: With Recon we have created a true Real Time 3D interpretation environment in which any changes to your interpretation are immediately updated in your 3D, cross-section, and basemap views.

Recon’s underlying 3D foundation enables it to solve complex geological interpretation problems that cannot be resolved using software that relies on traditional 2D technology. A typical Recon example is its ability to visualize and correlate hundreds of horizontal wells directly in 3D, thus significantly simplifying the geological interpretation process involving complex well trajectories.

Better Business Decisions

Recon was specifically designed to allow geologists to benefit from the same advantages that 3D technology has brought to geophysicists and reservoir engineers. Recon’s 3D environment enables geologists to continually improve their interpretations.

Solution: Improved geological interpretations lead to more accurate 3D models and reservoir simulations. Accurate models lead to risk reduction and to better business decisions.

 

Productivity and Quality Control Enhancement

Single Application Workflow Increases Productivity

Geoscientists using Recon will no longer face the need to master multiple applications in order to complete a geological interpretation workflow. Any changes to the interpretation are immediately updated in your 3D, cross-section, and basemap views.

Problem: Currently, geoscientists have to use separate applications for well-log correlation, surface modeling and mapping, and for 3D modeling and visualization.

Solution: Recon combines the functionality of these applications into a single 3D interpretation environment, thus reducing the learning curve and increasing the geoscientist's interpretation productivity.

Unique Data Quality Control in 3D

seismic and cylinder logs WAHARecon was designed from the ground up to leverage your existing data management environments such as Landmark and GeoQuest. For example, Recon reads and writes data directly to and from the Landmark OpenWorks database and also accesses 3D seismic directly from the Landmark SeisWorks 3D seismic datafiles. In addition, Recon easily links to best-of-class third-party applications.

Solution: Recon’s is uniquely equipped to manage the crucial task of data quality analysis and cleanup. By being able to display thousands of wells, together with seismic and production data in 3D, all issues related to data quality can for the first time be addressed in an interactive 3D spatial environment, enabling you to maintain control over your data like never before.
