Pore Pressure Prediction

The Pore Pressure Prediction module adds a complete workflow for interactive geopressure analysis, including prediction at wells and full 3D pressure models.

  • Interactively predict overburden, pore, and fracture pressures
  • 1D PPP at well locations
  • 3D PPP from seismic velocities
  • Model centroid and fluid buoyancy effects
  • PPP uncertainty simulation
  • Eaton and Miller PPP methods
  • ?Matthews-Kelly fracture gradient
  • Volume smoothing
  • Volume integration
  • Velocity picking (from gathers)

More than 25% of drilling non-productive time (NPT) is due to overpressure.  In addition to decreasing the NPT, correct prediction of the pressure regime enables faster drilling, less formation invasion, and therefore improved reservoir integrity.

Features include:

  • Interactively model and predict overburden, pore, and fracture pressures
  • 1D prediction and calibration at well locations
  • 3D prediction from seismic velocities
  • Model centroid and fluid buoyancy effects including hydrocarbon column height
  • Uncertainty simulation
  • Eaton’s and Miller’s methods for pore pressure prediction
  • Matthews-Kelly method for fracture gradient prediction
  • Integrate calibration data (MDT, LOT, MW, etc)

The Pore Pressure Prediction module is a seamless addition to DUG Insight, with an intuitive, interactive interface for rapid analysis. Contact usfor a demo or free evaluation.
