3D restoration today has four different types of objectives:
  1. Perform quality control on seismic or structural interpretations.
  2. Obtain tensor data that might be used as proxy for fracture density and fracture orientation.
  3. Obtain geometry in the past, to be used for petroleum system modeling or stratigraphic modeling.
  4. Get an idea of the stress field when complex faults or salt patterns interact.
This presentation will show how these four goals can be achieved.


Jean-Luc.jpegJean-Luc Rudkiewicz has 25 years of experience in petroleum system modelling and in complex structural investigations. His current field of interest is 3D structural kinematic modeling and its links to paleo fracking through strain and stress reconstruction. He is also interested in the relationship between paleo strain and past or present flow behavior of rocks or faults at basin scale. He is active in applying, developing and testing new structural restoration software tools in a joint cooperation between IFPEN and Emerson E&P Software.
