GMI•ModelBuilder™ software uses well log information to calculate overburden and pore pressure based on normal compaction trends. The software offers various methods for calculating pore pressure including Eaton, ratio, and equivalent depth. There are several options for calculating the fracture gradient, including Hubbert and Willis or Matthews and Kelly.
The software application has tools for rapid import, manipulation, and combination of logging data that dramatically reduces project turnaround time. Seismic velocities also can be input and analyzed. The software allows you to smooth and filter logs and perform calculations based on logs.
The software includes advanced features, such as calculation of Centroid and buoyancy effects. The functionality efficiently defines lithologies and sets up equations for rock property calculations for each lithology unit. Well data, such as pressure and leakoff tests and lab data, can be imported to calibrate the analysis.
Tie in specialist tools for better downhole picture
The software ties in with stress and image log analysis capabilities of GMI•SFIB™ sofware and GMI•Imager™ software. Together, they derive a realistic pore pressure and stress profile.
GMI•ModelBuilder software offers mechanical parameters, stress magnitudes, and orientations. Additionally, the application offers log-based pore pressure as continuous profiles along a well trajectory.
These results form the base for wellbore stability predictions using GMI•WellCheck™ software. The results can be used to assess the stress state on faults and fractures using GMI•MohrFracs™ software.
