ROME –A geology-driven 3D subsurface modeling program was released by Paradigm at the European Association of Geoscientists and Engineering 70th Annual Conference and Exhibition.
SKUA (Subsurface Knowledge Unified Approach) "removes the limits of the 'pillar-based' method to improve on the quality of geomodeling possible," said Jean-Claude Dulac, executive vice president and chief architect at Paradigm. "SKUA does not deform volumes or distances and accounts for all the data at any scale."
The program is based on paleo-geochronologic modeling and takes into consideration multiple fault angles and all available relevant data to construct accurate, 3D models, said Dulac. Reservoir Architecture is the first SKUA solution available.
