PROSPECT RISK ASSESSMENT

Seals International is the leading world expert on fault seal analysis.  Our prospect risk analyses are based upon the largest, empirical database of fault seal behavior in oil and gas fields.

We can provide a rapid risk assessment of your faulted prospect.  Donít wait until youíve finished your work before you start the fault seal analysis.  Early fault seal analysis can save time by focusing your interpretation efforts along critical portions of the fault and can quickly rank multiple prospects focusing your attention on the most viable traps.

12 Reasons Why


SEALS COURSE

The SEALS course is a 4-day, in-house course on fault seal, top seal and migration.  The emphasis is on practical techniques based upon 25 years of risking prospects in a wide variety of structural styles.

SOFTWARE

The new QuickLook fault seal software allows both normal deterministic analysis as well as stochastic analysis.  It allows you to rapidly evaluate a wide variation of possible stratigraphies and fault displacements. 

The following figures, automatically generated by the QuickLook software, show probable hydrocarbon columns (green) in individual sands in both the hanging-wall and footwall of a fault at 3 different fault displacements (Minimum D, Most Likely D and Maximum D).  The actual sand/shale stratigraphy is shown at right (sand-yellow, shale-gray).

 

 

 

New QuickLook fault seal analysis software

 

 We are excited about our new SEALS software.  During two recent consulting projects we have been faced with very short deadlines and difficult prospects that involved large stratigraphic and structural uncertainties.  The new Quick Look fault seal analysis software arose out of that need.

 

This new software does the routine SGR analysis we have used for years but more quickly and it does several other important things.  The software directly shows:

 

Juxtapositions

 

Fault dependent leak points

 

Hydrocarbon columns

 

Uses Monte Carlo methods to generate stratigraphic columns for stochastic seal analysis.

Stratigraphic Column

Potential reservoir sands are shown in yellow, shales in gray.  Probable oil columns are shown at left

 

 

 

 

The software automatically generates statistics for hydrocarbon columns and percent fill allowing you to easily rank prospects and evaluate the effect of your interpretations on entrapment.
