Geological Modelling

Geologic modeling is the applied science of forming computerized representations of portions of the Earth's crust based on geophysical and geological observations made on and below the Earth surface. Geologic modeling also known as Geomodelling is associated to the concept of Shared Earth Model which is a multidisciplinary, interoperable and updatable knowledge base about the subsurface. Geomodelling is generally used for the management of the natural resources and natural hazards and also for quantifying geological processes, with main applications to oil and gas fields, groundwater aquifers and ore deposits. The Geologic modeling components are Structural framework, type of the rocks, Reservoir quality, Fluid saturation, Geostatistics and Mineral Deposits.

3D visualization of geological structures is a very efficient way to create a good understanding of geological features. The purpose of the geological model is to provide input for the groundwater modeling of the area. Hence, the modeling activity will focus on the uppermost part of the sedimentary sequence containing the groundwater reservoirs. Advanced structural and stratigraphic modeling is used to construct and automate structural frameworks during interpretation. 

Using geological models and reservoir simulation allows reservoir engineers to identify which recovery options offer the safest and most economic, efficient, and effective development plan for a particular reservoir. 3D models define domains and allow constrained resource estimations and mine design hydrology and geotechnical studies. Hydro geologists use 3D geological modeling to determine how many layers they need to incorporate into groundwater flow models and to estimate the facies between boreholes, and the distribution of porosity and hydraulic conductivity.
