Software Solutions in Seismic Interpretation. Eliis is an international software provider in seismic interpretation for the oil and gas industry. Eliis - международный поставщик программного обеспечения в сейсмической интерпретации для нефтегазовой промышленности. Eliis is a french company founded in June 2007. Its office is located in Montpellier (France).
Through its experience in seismic imaging, geosciences and computer skills, Eliis has developed PaleoScan™, a new generation of software, which optimizes drastically the seismic interpretation process.
PaleoScan™ has already been used on various areas worldwide and has shown successful results used in the E&P decisions. Thanks to a new approach based on a global minimization methods, PaleoScan™ aims to compute geological time model directly from the seismic information. This technology improves the quality of the interpretation and reduces drastically time cycle, compared to classical techniques. This changes the way to look at seismic data and takes interpretation a step further in the exploration and production process.

This method uses a comprehensive approach which consists of a three-step computer aided workflow. Our algorithm first tracks first every possible horizon within the seismic volume and assigns relative geological ages automatically. Then the interpreter edits the relationships between horizons and updates the model in real time to obtain the optimum solution.

The Relative Geological Time (RGT) method is now adapted to 2D seismic lines. A 2D horizon patch grid is created over multiple seismic lines. Thanks to a user friendly interface environment, multi 2D lines can be interpreted in a comprehensive way using an innovative workflow. Mis-ties effect between the lines are managed by computing a global variant shift function.

Interpret quickly and accurately various type of horizons. In addition to all classical tools for traditional horizon interpretation, an unlimited number of horizons, also called "horizon stack", is derived from the geologic time model to explore seismic volumes beyond the seismic resolution.This horizon slicing is widely used for data reconnaissance, detection of prospect leads and comprehension of reservoirs at a fine scale. A flattening option on horizon is also available.

Spectral Blueing method helps the interpretation of seismic areas with too low amplitude values. It is a quick technique which can be easily applied on seismic data and improves the vertical resolution of seismic volumes. Following the same workflow as Coloured Inversion, this method is based on reflectivity time series computed from acoustic impedance well logs. It defines an operator used to increase the vertical resolution of seismic data.

Inversion of seismic data to acoustic impedance often requires time and expertise. Despite the benefit of such a process, inverted data are only used in a limited number of cases. To overcome this, Coloured Inversion is a quick technique which can be easily applied on seismic data and performs a simple understandable inversion process.
Build interactively a geological correlation panel across well log data, at any location along the trajectory by slicing horizons and creating 3D geological layers. Well tops and horizon interpretation are checked and vertical differences automatically quantified in an interactive table. Fine well to well correlation can be done with the horizon stack, in both depth and time domains. Flattening options on markers or horizons are also available.

Spectral decomposition is an innovative technique relying on the transformation of each individual 1D seismic trace, into a 2D time-frequency representation using Short Time Fourrier Transform (STFT) or Continuous Wavelet Transform (CWT). It provides high resolution imaging of reservoir detail, geological discontinuities and produces very informative maps of thin beds, especially in clastic successions with sharp impedance contrasts.

Advanced interpretation is a module for high resolution stratigraphic analysis. It includes complementary tools for sequence boundaries modeling, visualization with color blending and automatic geobodies extraction and provides a powerful way to exploit the stratigraphic information from the geological time model.

Building a geological model is a key step to understand reservoir properties and dynamic behaviour of fluids. PaleoScan™ enables to carry out all the different stages of the geomodeling workflow to create a static model such as building stratigraphic units from the RGT model, gridding the model with various patterns, populating cells with seismic facies or petrophysical properties.

A sealed geological model can be obtained by converting the Relative Geological Time (RGT) volume into a watertight model. This process is realized interactively using stratigraphic layers from the RGT volume. The sealed model is meshed in 3D, using these geological boundaries, where intersections between faults and horizons is managed. It can be used for various applications in geomodeling.

Color Blending allows to decompose image in 3 different color channels and play with the image contrast. By assigning attributes or frequency decomposition to each channel, it drastically improves visualization and facilitates the imaging of geological events throughout the seismic.
Various blending methods are proposed, such as RGB (Red, Green Blue), CMY (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow), HSV (Hue, Saturation, Value), HSL (Hue, Saturation,Lightness).

Various methods to manage and/or convert data from time to depth domain are proposed in this module such as interactive seismic-well tie with a comprehensive method, intuitive logs depth adjustment and real time seismic depth stretching. This process is involved in many applications for reservoir characterization and velocity modeling.
The seismic-well tie tool is simple and interactive, including all the required processes for sonic calibration, wavelet extraction and synthetic seismogram generation. Time shift, stretch and squeeze can be applied in real time with useful editing options to perform a quick and precise calibration. Moreover, synthetic seismic volumes can be computed in real time thanks to the geological time model and multi-well constraints.
Seismic image can be stretched in real time from time to depth domain by assigning velocity models. Interpretation can be done in both domains interactively because the display of all objects are transformed within the viewer. This tool proposes various domains of application to check velocity cubes, seismic-well tie and also save horizons and volumes in the depth domain.
Build interactively a velocity model by defining intervals from the RGT model and convert the seismic in depth instantaneously. Various methods to compute velocity values are proposed: constant, linear or from the wells. The depth conversion in real time allows adjusting the velocity model accordingly. The interpretation can be done in both domains interactively since the display of all objects is transformed within the viewer.
