Our software is the benchmark for excellence and against which other software is judged. With a long and respected publication record we offer unrivalled insight into structural issues as part of our support and consultancy services. Within our group our experts, considered at the top of their disciplines, are at your disposal.

Fast, effective support
Our users enjoy a level of support unrivalled in the industry; personal, fast and above all, effective. Whether it is help with technical or geological inquiries, our team of structural geology experts is on hand to help you find the right solution.

"Thanks for all your help and advice with T7 this year. I've thoroughly enjoyed working with it and it's enabled a step change in the level of analysis we were able to deliver to our teams. I really value the fact that I can send you an email asking for help and it is responded to quickly and by the people who wrote the code or did the original science behind it. It's a level of support we don't get from other vendors and it is much appreciated."

Data Integration
T7 is tightly integrated with third party applications via dedicated binary links to Petrel, OpenWorks, GeoFrame and Decision Space. Use these to transfer interpretations and well data; mixed 2D & 3D data survey storage; fully user-definable ASCII import formats for wide range of data types including corner-point grids and properties. Comprehensive data interpretation and editing functionality; SEGY data loaders and volume capture tools.


Framework modelling (CORE)
Intelligent modelling of horizon-fault intersections to produce polygons and a gapless 3D framework especially at fault-fault intersections. Analysis of fault polygon geometry and throw distribution provides an effective method for quality-check the fault interpretation and structural model resulting in a more geologically robust starting point (framework model) for structural analysis. Display of seismic slices along faults to aid quality check of model intersections. Infill modelling of reservoir-scale stratigraphy based on stratigraphic rules in the well model.

Trap Integrity Analysis (SEAL)
Generate layer, seismic and volume property maps; stochastic modelling of well curve data; estimate fault-zone composition (e.g. shale gouge ratio); pressure data calibration; predict fault-zone properties, column heights and hydrocarbon contacts. Create custom attributes according to user-specific empirical relationships (e.g. shale gouge ratio vs fault permeability), allowing generation of completely new attribute realizations. StressTester module to assess fault reactivation risk. All properties are displayable on horizon and fault surfaces

Geocellular Property model and fault attributes (GRID)
EarthGrid module for deriving fault-zone properties (e.g. permeability & transmissibility multipliers) from corner-point grids, their properties and structure. All geocellular derived properties are exportable to reservoir simulators.

Fracture Modelling (FRAC)
Fracture Prediction module forward models high resolution, but reliable, displacement and strains within the volume surrounding an interpreted fault structure. Relative fracture density, orientation and failure mode are computed. Fracture Networks can be derived from Fracture Prediction derived attributes.

The fault seal, geocellular and fracture prediction tools help geoscientists to understand complex fault behavior in an exploration setting (is the fault sealing or not?) or during production (will the fault act as a baffle to flow?). By deriving fault properties and fracture networks in their true structural context, more informed value-added decisions regarding trap integrity and production forecasting can be made.
