Spatio Temporal Monitoring of Oil Fields. Temporal Picking.

Data mining based on a picking object which plots the properties and variables of a reservoir over time.
Category: Oil Industry Application
Technologies: VTK, Computer Graphics, C++, C#.
We have designed for PetroSynapsis one family of widgets for the spatiotemporal exploration of the properties and variables of a reservoir. PetroSynapsis widgets have the ability of spatiotemporal sampling, which means that if a property or a variable of the reservoir varies over time then this property is displayed dynamically. This feature makes these widgets an excellent tool for assessing global phenomena occurring at the oil field during the simulations.
In this project we have created a novel mechanism of data mining, which consists of an object called the “Picker”. The “Picker” is introduced in a 3D scene to explore the properties (and scalar variables) of one reservoir over time and space.
The upper figures show two oil field cuts, and one oil well. The small sphere samples the reservoir properties and variables along the time. Note that PRESSURE is the only variable that varies with time.
The simulation shown in these two figures are toy examples, which we are using to demonstrate the PetroSynapsis ability to deploy a true simulation. The sequence of the variable PRESSURE has been artificially generated from a Gaussian that expands into the 3D space between two horizons. The following video contains an excellent demonstration of the use of this widget.
