Accurate interpretation is that crucial first step.

Successful subsurface modeling depends on valid interpretation models and accurate time-depth conversions. However, traditional technologies struggle with ensuring the integrity of interpretations. SKUA-GOCAD™ by Paradigm® succeeds because of its unique modeling platform, which automatically creates sealed structural and stratigraphic models during the interpretation process and enables the consistent use of all interpretation data throughout the geoscience and engineering workflows.


Seismic interpretation modeling

The comprehensive yet flexible Paradigm seismic interpretation, visualization and modeling system is ideal for projects scaling from basin to prospect and reservoir, from exploration field to development field, and from a single user on a laptop to multi-disciplinary teams of geoscientists, petrophysicists and drilling engineers.  The SKUA-GOCAD modeling technology brings unique functionalities to the interpretation process, such as semi-automatic global interpretation and 3D paleo-space seismic interpretation.

SKUA-GOCAD technology:

  • Refines interpretation models
  • Enables 3D flattening for validation and enhanced interpretation
  • Automatically creates sealed structural models
  • Reduces human error
  • Decreases processing time

Velocity modeling

SKUA-GOCAD is the ideal tool for complex projects that need sealed models to accommodate high-precision ray tracing. The Paradigm SKUA-GOCAD velocity modeling package introduces extraordinary capabilities that significantly impact the resulting imaging processes. Better models lead to better solutions, and better solutions lead to better results. The wide range of the powerful yet easy-to-use velocity modeling methods offered by SKUA-GOCAD enable accurate, efficient, and productive time-to-depth conversion. These methods include advanced tools and a user-friendly depth conversion process.

With other solutions, structural complexity is quickly a limiting factor. This is not the case with SKUA-GOCAD: Velocity modeling enables accurate time-to-depth conversion in salt and structurally complex environments, making use of 3D operations that honor the stratigraphy and faults.
