ROME -- Paradigm used EAGE in Rome to launch its new 3D modeling software called SKUA 2008.

According to the company, the new product bridges the gap between seismic and simulation by removing current modeling limitations.

Reservoir Architecture is the first workflow solution available on the Paradigm SKUA 2008 environment. It guides interpreters, reservoir modelers, and engineers through easy-to-use steps to rapidly construct accurate 3D models, according to Paradigm. The solution allows for model creation based on all available, relevant data, without exception, and every modeling decision is recorded for fast model updating and auditing, the company says.

"SKUA 2008 embeds a native, full 3D description of the model volumes that removes the limitations of conventional 'pillar-based' methodology. The product makes possible quality geomodeling that was previously unavailable," says Jean-Claude Dulac, executive VP and chief architect at Paradigm. "SKUA will fundamentally change the way geoscientists model and quantify the subsurface for prospect evaluation or field development."
