Mechanically-based 3D reservoir restoration and Basin modeling.
Dynel3D is a unique volume restoration and forward modeling tool based on the 3D finite element method (FEM).
Dynel3D integrates geological and geophysical data on horizons and faults with geomechanical analyses of the deformation (i.e. displacement, strain and stress) associated with the geological structure development using the fundamental principles of physics, which govern rock deformation.
Dynel3D provides fast physically-based means for solving various aspects of the subsurface issues related to structure interpretation, Basin evolution and fracturing.
Accurate 3D models
Dynel3D can forward model and restore complex contractional and extensionalstructures. There is no need to choose between multiple algorithms.
Easy 3D model building
Dynel3D has an innovative built-in 3D model building workflow that allows easy creation of complex 3D geological models from any type of industry data.
Dynel3D honours the fundamental physical laws, which govern rock deformation. They replace and/or complement the geometrical assumptions and kinematics relationships.
Realistic boundary conditions
Dynel3D uses realistic boundary conditions and constraints:
There is no plane strain necessary in 3D
There is no transport direction needed
There is no need to have discontinuous rigid blocks
Faults are treated as real discontinuity which mechanically interact
Faults do not have to be fixed in space
Real rock behaviour
Dynel3D uses heterogeneous rock properties. Mechanical properties can be assigned locally to simulate the behaviour of real reservoir rock variations.
Dynel3D has built-in 3D strain-based compaction (or decompaction) allowing fault slip while compacting.
Full deformation attributes
Dynel3D computes the displacement, strain and stress fields anywhere in the modelled volume.
Handy graphic interface
Dynel3D graphic user interface,workflows and tools facilitate the modeling. It allows automatic replay of the complete restoration workflow after alteration of the initial structure interpretation.
