Galaxy 4D is a fully integrated geological, geostatistical and reservoir characterization software platform. It provides geologists and reservoir engineers with a highly versatile and easy to use 3D/2D stratigraphic and reservoir modeling tool.
Galaxy 4D significantly decreases the time involved in building, updating and managing reservoir models while increasing the knowledge and understanding of the reservoir. As a result, optimum field development programs can be designed faster and with reduced risks. Galaxy 4D’s strengths lie in its logical and straight forward workflow. Its modules and displays are intuitive, interactive and time saving. Proficiency is gained in few hours and expertise in just a few days with minimal training using several short sessions.
Intuitive work flow
Short learning curve
Project explorer for centralized data management and editing
Reservoir heterogeneity and uncertainty modeling
Platform independent: PC, Linux and Unix compatible
Galaxy 4D’s data management allows you to create a unified catalog for reservoir descriptions and geological, petrophysical, seismic and engineering data. This function also allows a user to utilize the Project Explorer for the management and editing of input and output. This application is able to define and edit grids, zones, surfaces, markers, facies, variables and properties. It can also create new facies and new variables, perform data transformations, grid-to-grid operations etc. The data management facet of Galaxy 4D can also import and export industry standard data formats.
Galaxy 4D’s statistical analysis allows you to analyze histograms of reservoir properties for single or multiple wells, for 2D and 3D data sets, on a zone by zone and/or defined area basis. This application lets the user examine scattergrams of selected variables with calculation of regression equations and correlation coefficients.
Galaxy 4D’s well correlation function allows you to select cross sections from the base map and create log templates and scales for single or multiple curves. With well correlation the user can interpolate inter-well reservoir properties and edit and create correlation markers. In this application you can view logs in side-by-side log panels for detailed correlation analysis. Well correlation also allows users to create zones interactively and flatten horizons and edit the color bar.
3D Simulation, Scale up and Visualization
Galaxy 4D’s 3D simulation, scaleup and visualization gives the user the ability to construct characterized 3D reservoir volumes via geostatistical simulations of reservoir properties for single or multiple zones. This function allows you to simulate Gaussian, Indicator, Hybrid and Fluvial simulation types. With Galaxy 4D you can scaleup reservoir property models; visualize 3D volume with advanced slice, layer, cross-sectional and fence diagram views alongside the display of well logs and faults; and export 3D reservoir models and volumes to various flow simulators.
Gridding and Mapping
Galaxy 4D can place multiple 2D grids and base maps within the same project and model onlap, pinchouts and truncations, using stratigraphic gridding options. The gridding and mapping function within Galaxy 4D allows the user to analyze 2D maps of depth, isochores and reservoir properties (porosity, permeability, etc.) via kriging and 2D mapping from 3D property volumes. This function also allows you to import and incorporate key seismic surfaces and faults.
Using Galaxy 4D’s petrophysical analysis you can display log and core data and also create, save and print logout templates. This application can compute zone-wise petrophysical properties for single and multiple wells, as well as, create user-defined curves from existing logs and merge curves by zone.
