GPM geological process modeling software is used to build digital geological models simulating the erosion, transport, and deposition of clastic and carbonate sediments.
Unified canvas: GPM 2D is included in both the Petrel Geoscience and Combined cores so that any geoscientist can test, validate and capture 2D cross-sections of the different geological scenarios that will describe their study area and reservoirs while considering the physical processes controlling them.
Easy to learn and use: GPM 2D is based on a user-defined or hand-drawn cross-section and leverages Petrel software visualization capabilities to offer an interactive and high-performance working environment.
Fast: Multiple alternative geological process-based models can be created in just a few seconds or minutes, enabling to evaluate and quantify the impact of the controlling parameters (for example, tectonics and sea-level fluctuations) on the basin-fill architecture and thus refine the initial boundary conditions.
Robust: Users have access to the fundamental physical controls of sedimentation such as diffusion, as well as other controlling parameters such as compaction, tectonics and sea-level fluctuation. Additionally, users have access to processes for modeling sediment accumulation with several output properties for quality checking of the result. All available processes can be combined and are modeled deterministically through the numerical simulation of physical processes.
Workflow Integration: GPM software is tightly integrated with other SLB technologies to enable addressing challenges at different scales—from basin to reservoir—with applicability throughout the entire E&P lifecycle, from early exploration to improved oil recovery (IOR).

GPM 2D allows to test, validate and capture the geological scenarios that will best describe the study area in 2D while considering the physical processes controlling them. 2D forward model of the sediment distribution in a prograding delta system tract with boundary conditions calibrated with the seismic (Netherlands Offshore F3 Block dataset used with permission of dGB Earth Science)
2D geological process-based modeling is used to interactively evaluate and better understand the impact of parameter selection on the stratigraphic responses as well as capture the effect of different sea-level fluctuations on the resulting sedimentation patterns. 2D forward model of the Vail et al.

2D geological process-based modeling is used to validate the geological concepts, refine the initial boundary conditions and build robust geological understandings and scenario appraisals thereby allowing to then confidently evolve to 3D complex modeling. 2D forward model in a prograding delta system tract (Netherlands Offshore F3 Block dataset used with permission of dGB Earth Science)
Geological process-based modeling uses realistic geological trend information in a quantitative manner. The resulting digital representation of the geology enables to not only predict the lithology distribution and petrophysical properties but can also be used to synthetically create the associated seismic response, providing insights below the resolution of measurements. 2D forward model of the Vail et al.

Wheeler diagrams can be created from geological process-based models thereby providing snapshots of geologic times and allowing the study of sediment distribution and basin-fill architecture in relation with changes in sea-level and accommodation space. 2D forward model of the sedimentary infill in a prograding delta system tract (Netherlands Offshore F3 Block dataset used with permission of dGB Earth Science)
GPM 2D is based on a user-defined or hand-drawn cross-section and leverages on the Petrel platform visualization capabilities to seamlessly draw geological insights and capture the effect of different basin subsidence and uplift on the final basin topography. 2D forward model of the sedimentary infill in a prograding delta system tract with boundary conditions calibrated with the seismic interpretation (Netherlands Offshore F3 Block dataset used with permission of dGB Earth Science).
