Regional 3D stratigraphic modeling improved (Mar-2007) ///

Normal 3D models are built over a single reservoir or a few neighboring reservoirs, and even regional mapping tends to cover relatively small areas. A few years ago, building an integrated 3D model covering an area as large as the Middle East and North Africa would have been unthinkable. However, with the rise of 64-bit computing and lower cost, high-performance desktop workstations, the vision of a single 3D regional subsurface model is now attainable. Formed in 2001, Neftex is a UK-based international geoscience consultancy specializing in the provision of sequence stratigraphic models for E&P companies. Its customers include 13 of the world’s largest E&P companies. The company specializes in the interpretation of geoscience data sets (e.g., outcrop, subsurface, drilling and engineering) and the delivery of these as integrated subsurface models. Its vision is to provide a single digital global structural and stratigraphic subsurface model in 3D.
