Technological lead in high definition modeling



New Features Why it Matters
  • New! Increased support for batch processes and parallel runs, and smoother integration with Tempest™ ENABLE
  • Improves the usability of integrated reservoir modeling and uncertainty workflows
  • New! Usability improvements to the SKUA™-Epos™ link 
  • Further strengthening of well correlation workflows
  • New! Improved usability of velocity conversion tools and better management of Seismic Reference Datum
  • Significantly simplifies velocity modeling workflows for onshore fields
  • Structural model refinement
    • Structural models built using SKUA volumetric modeling can be post-processed to increase the fit with input seismic and well data. When used with low-resolution initial structural models, this reduces computation time and memory footprint while resulting in a higher-resolution final model.
  • Enables the construction of robust models, increasing confidence in the results and streamlining model-based seismic workflows, such as model-based tomography and stratigraphy-driven velocity models.


  • Streamline and automate the reservoir modeling uncertainty workflow
    • Accelerate and facilitate replay of structural uncertainties
    • Accelerate and improve Jacta™ connectivity to structural and dynamic uncertainties
    • Enable automatic replay of:
      • Flow Simulation Grid workflow for dynamic grid creation under uncertainties
      • Upscaling workflow under uncertainty
      • Reservoir Simulation Link under uncertainty
  • The fully automatic workflow considerably reduces cycle time to decisions.
  • Increased automation further streamlines and broadens the scope of Big Loop™ workflows for reliable assisted history matching and predictions.


  • Noise reduction with factorial kriging
    • 3D factorial kriging algorithm to decompose a property into multiple components based on spatial analysis of the input signal
  • Fast, new tool for reducing noise and acquisition footprints from 3D volumes.


  • Usability improvements
    • A significant reduction in the number of mouse clicks needed to perform specific tasks
    • More visualization, editing and data QC options
  • Improved ease of use, for higher productivity.
  • Production and Reservoir Engineering enhancements
    • Streamlined import of production data
    • Improved set up of schedule section in Reservation Simulation Link
  • Faster and easier creation and update of flow simulation deck files. 
  • Map, Well Section and Cross-Sections
    • Improved display of well log signature in maps
    • Pie chart display of facies logs in maps and well track headers
    • Improved log displays in well tracks with percentage logs and stick display
    • Consolidated Style Editor for wells and well tracks
    • Menu enhancements
  • Improved ease of use of 2D Displays with fewer clicks, and more visualization, editing and data QC options

  • Epos Connectivity and Stratigraphy
    • SKUA-GOCAD now shares the same data model for stratigraphy and marker sets as Epos.
    • Introduction of Stratigraphic Context, that groups all data and information related to stratigraphy, such as marker activity, stratigraphy along wells and stratigraphic columns
    • New tools for managing and comparing marker activity and marker sets
    • Markers opened in the application from Epos keep the same marker set and stratigraphic information
    • User’s edits in the application to markers and stratigraphy are saved back in the database without information loss.
  • The streamlined exchange of markers and stratigraphic data between SKUA-GOCAD and Epos greatly improves marker database cleaning and facilitates well correlation workflows.
