Facies Analysis


The facies analysis module employs methods such as grain size and mineral composition analyses for sedimentary facies type and source direction. Core data is also fully utilized to calibrate the facies model. GES allows users to easily make facies picks in the well section module. These facies picks can then be used to create facies maps and to constrain 3D facies models. Key features include:

  • Sedimentary rock sorting analysis and average grainsize calculation

  • Auto-estimate type and orientation of sedimentary source

  • Automatic facies mapping with various geological constraints

  • Interactive facies analysis tools to use in wells, cross-sections, and maps

  • Various facies edit tools
