  • Patent number: 10922782
    Abstract: Systems and methods for mapping vertices from one coordinate system in an earth model to another coordinate system in a two-dimensional (2D) array without disrupting the topology of the vertices.
    Type: Grant
    Filed: December 16, 2016
    Date of Patent: February 16, 2021
    Assignee: LANDMARK GRAPHICS CORPORATION
    Inventors: Zitao Xu, Genbao Shi, ChiKang David Chien, Maurice Gehin, Andres Cesar Callegari, Jeffrey Marc Yarus
  • Patent number: 10628552
    Abstract: A method includes generating a faulted point cloud representing a faulted geological formation including a first fault block having a first surface, a second fault block having a second surface, and a fault formed therebetween and having a fault surface, generating a first fault trace from an intersection of the first surface and the fault surface and a second fault trace from an intersection of the second surface and the fault surface, generating a first fault polygon using the first and second fault traces, generating a center polyline, generating third and fourth fault traces separated from the first and second fault traces, respectively, generating a second fault polygon using the third and fourth fault traces, expanding a first area including the first and third fault traces, expanding a second area including the second and fourth fault traces, and generating an unfaulted point cloud representing an unfaulted geological formation.

  • Publication number: 20160260180
    Abstract: In some embodiments, an apparatus and a system, as well as a method and an article, may operate to access a workflow database, the workflow database including operations data describing workflow operations for performing an oil recovery process and the workflow database having result data indicating a result of the oil recovery process; to generate a list that includes a plurality of parameters related to the workflow operations; to determine predicted impacts, on the result, of changing values for the plurality of parameters; to select a parameter of the plurality of parameters that has a largest predicted impact on the result relative to the predicted impacts of non-selected ones of the plurality of parameters, to provide a selected parameter; and to provide a recommendation for refinement of measurement data related to the selected parameter. Additional apparatus, systems, and methods are disclosed.
