  • Publication number: 20150316683
    Abstract: A computer executable algorithm adapted to propagate a boundary surface of a seed that is placed within a region of interest of a visual representation of a 3D seismic data so as to follow a natural contour of said region of interest, wherein said algorithm is executable to: (i) generate at least one attribute volume comprising at least on attribute derivable from said 3D seismic data set; (ii) generate at least one characteristic parameter for a plurality of candidate events of said 3D seismic data within a predefined gate region located forward of said propagating boundary surface; (iii) generate and assign a probability characteristic for said plurality of candidate events based on said at least one attribute volume and said at least one characteristic parameter; and propagate said boundary surface towards and incorporating any one of said plurality of candidate events that fulfils an acceptance criteria of said probability characteristic so as to generate a surface along the natural contour of said region

  • Publication number: 20150290972
    Abstract: A device for lifting, supporting and moving large vehicle wheels allows a single person to install and remove wheels. The device has a U-shaped frame with two opposed straight sides connected by a jack side of the frame. Lift arms rotatably affixed to the opposed straight sides have rotatable rollers that contact the vehicle wheel. The lift arms are connected to a jack via chains that translate vertical motion from the jack to raise the lift arms, and thus raise the vehicle wheel. The rollers allow a user to rotate the vehicle wheel to position it for reinstallation onto the vehicle. A stabilizer bar rotatably affixed to the frame contacts the vehicle lift to stabilize the wheel during use of the device.

  • Publication number: 20150234067
    Abstract: A method for adaptively determining one or more faults from geological survey data includes: (a) generating at least one attribute volume comprising a plurality of attributes from said geological survey data; (b) identifying at least one region of interest on a predetermined cross-section of said at least one attribute volume; (c) adding at least one seed to said at least one region of interest; (d) defining at least one representative area in accordance with said region of interest; (e) starting an initial generation of at least one basic geological object by adapting said at least one seed and/or representative area; (f) selectively determining growth confidence levels for any of said at least one basic geological object based on a realistic geological principles, and mapping said at least one basic geological object with colour-coded data of said growth confidence levels; (g) monitoring a visual representation of said at least one basic geological object during said initial generation; (h) selectively stop

  • Patent number: 8908926
    Abstract: A method of 3D object delineation from 3D seismic data comprising the steps of, providing 3D seismic data; processing the data based on at least one characteristic whereby said characteristic is extracted from the data and compared with at least one reference characteristic and delineated based on the comparison, and defining a geological element based on the delineation. The characteristics may be adjusted. Data can be processed based on one characteristic then processed based on a second characteristic or data is processed based on two characteristics substantially simultaneously. Data may be processed n times producing n delineations from which the geological element is defined. An algorithm is provided for processing the data which may shift an evolving shape description of an object between explicit and implicit representations, where each shift applies a transformation to the object. Multiple sources of data may be utilized simultaneously to drive the delineation process.

  • Publication number: 20140044316
    Abstract: Disclosed is a method of 3D object delineation from 3D seismic data comprising the steps of providing 3D seismic data (144,200,300; processing the data (210,310) based on at least one characteristic (320) whereby said characteristic is extracted from the data and compared with at least one reference characteristic and delineated (330) based on the comparison, and defining a geological element (340) based on the delineation. The characteristics (320) may be adjusted. Data can be processed (210,310) based on one characteristic (222,232) then processed based on a second characteristic (224,234) or data is processed based on two characteristics substantially simultaneously (252). Data may be processed n times (246) producing n delineations from which the geological element is defined (260).
