Digital Sedimentary Petrology

Geocosm is helping to invent this nascent field, which uses a rigorous chemistry and physics based approach for simulating the properties and geologic evolution of sediments and rocks in 3D at the grain scale. In the examples below, created with our patented Cyberstone™ system, we simulate deposition, compaction, cementation, and pore-scale fluid flow.

EAGE Presentation

Rob Lander and Linda Bonnell from Geocosm gave an invited presentation at the EAGE in Copenhagen regarding the state-of-the-art in reservoir quality prediction methods on June 11, 2018. Summary:Sandstone reservoir quality prediction has moved from a reliance on simple empirical trends (e.g., porosity vs. depth) to include process-oriented forward models. Process-oriented models are more accurate…
