Landmark has integrated technology from Geophysical Techniques, Inc (GTI) into its StrataModel 3-D geocellular modeling application. GTI’s StrataMap framework- building and editing software will be tightly integrated into StrataModel as StrataMap Framework Builder.
Landmark president John Gibson said “With StrataMap, our customers will have more rapid model-building and updating capabilities for characterizing their oil and gas reservoirs.”
StrataMap will reduce faulted 3-D model-building time with dynamically linked 2-D views for quality control and fast editing of surfaces and faults. StrataMap will be marketed with a two-tier structure, StrataMap for general surface editing and StrataMap Framework Builder for building and editing complex faulted 3-D models.
StrataMap also provides automated fault relationship detection. Fault and grid interrelationships can also be consistently determined to generating topologically correct geo-frameworks. These automatic procedures will drastically reduce the learning time required as well as the time spent building most models.
Geophysical Techniques, Inc. has been working as a third-party software provider to Landmark for several years. Recently, GTI has focused on development of proprietary techniques for facilitating the building of geological frameworks appropriate for StrataModel.
