Permedia® Petroleum Systems Software

High Resolution Faults

Permedia® software supports fault properties and triangulated surfaces modeled in other packages, such as Badleys TrapTester and Gocad packages, by mapping fault attributes (e.g., shale gouge ratio) to petrophysical parameters (e.g., capillary threshold pressures), without any loss of resolution or detail to the source faults. Using Permedia software's risking tools, the influence of fault properties on hydrocarbon migration and accumulation can then be easily assessed.

Several TrapTester faults inside a model. Fault geometries and properties are modeled at their full input resolution.
