20160003956 | Enhanced Visualisation of Geologic Features in 3D Seismic Survey Data - A method of visually enhancing at least one geologic feature in 3D seismic survey data, comprising the steps of: (a) generating at least one attribute volume definable in Cartesian space and comprising at least one attribute derivable from said 3D seismic survey data; (b) generating a first Radon data volume from data resulting from a transaxial Radon Transform of said at least one attribute volume with respect to a first Cartesian axis; (c) generating a second Radon data volume from data resulting from a transaxial Radon Transform of said first Radon data volume with respect to a second Cartesian axis; (d) generating a third Radon data volume from data resulting from exponentiating a characteristic parameter of each one of a plurality of voxels forming said second Radon data volume to a predetermined first power value, and (e) applying a first Inverse Radon Transform to said third Radon data volume with respect to said second Cartesian axis, and a subsequent second Inverse Radon Transform to the resulting data from said first Inverse Radon Transform with respect to said first Cartesian axis. | 01-07-2016 |

20150316683 | ADAPTIVE HORIZON TRACKING - A computer executable algorithm adapted to propagate a boundary surface of a seed that is placed within a region of interest of a visual representation of a 3D seismic data so as to follow a natural contour of said region of interest, wherein said algorithm is executable to: (i) generate at least one attribute volume comprising at least on attribute derivable from said 3D seismic data set; (ii) generate at least one characteristic parameter for a plurality of candidate events of said 3D seismic data within a predefined gate region located forward of said propagating boundary surface; (iii) generate and assign a probability characteristic for said plurality of candidate events based on said at least one attribute volume and said at least one characteristic parameter; and propagate said boundary surface towards and incorporating any one of said plurality of candidate events that fulfils an acceptance criteria of said probability characteristic so as to generate a surface along the natural contour of said region of interest. | 11-05-2015 |

20150234067 | ADAPTIVE FAULT TRACKING - A method for adaptively determining one or more faults from geological survey data includes: (a) generating at least one attribute volume comprising a plurality of attributes from said geological survey data; (b) identifying at least one region of interest on a predetermined cross-section of said at least one attribute volume; (c) adding at least one seed to said at least one region of interest; (d) defining at least one representative area in accordance with said region of interest; (e) starting an initial generation of at least one basic geological object by adapting said at least one seed and/or representative area; (f) selectively determining growth confidence levels for any of said at least one basic geological object based on a realistic geological principles, and mapping said at least one basic geological object with colour-coded data of said growth confidence levels; (g) monitoring a visual representation of said at least one basic geological object during said initial generation; (h) selectively stopping said initial generation of said at least one basic geological object; (i) generating at least one optimized geological object through manipulation of at least part of said at least one basic geological object, wherein said at least one basic geological object is generated by applying a mesh propagation algorithm adapted to generate a surface mesh from said at least one seed, and which includes at least on predetermined constraint, including at least one external force, obtained from empirical geological data, and at least one internal force adapted to maintain the surface shape of said surface mesh. | 08-20-2015 |
