Geological concepts and knowledge capture

Petrel hero image

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).
