XSection

Finding, characterizing and exploiting new and existing subsurface trends are increasingly complex. To overcome these hurdles, we have strived continually to innovate the way we work; with the inception of the XSection application software.

The XSection application is ideal for creating, editing, and printing of geological cross sections. It is a powerful tool that aids the geoscientists to define stratigraphic and structural cross sections by integrating different well datasets from multiple GeoGraphix applications.

XSection is highly customizable when working with log and cross section templates and combines a state-of-the-art user interface that enables the user to perform sophisticated analyses of the dynamic subsurface trends of complex geologic systems in a fast and intuitive, processed-focused workflow.

Integration with LMKR GeoGraphix applications

Effectively define and analyze the cross sections in a smooth and steady environment using data from WellBase, GVERSE Petrophysics, ZoneManager, IsoMap and GVERSE Geophysics.

Edit Multiple Horizons/Faults

Graphically edit formation and fault picks that are saved as data, which can be used to define consistent inter-well structural and stratigraphic interpretation for the project.

Display Features

XSection has a robust displaying capacity that allows the user to display:

  • Logs with vector log data and raster images on the same cross section.
  • Faults and IsoMap layers on the section.
  • Deviated wells and logs with measured depth (MD) or true vertical depth (TVD).
  • A "type" vector or raster log curve and use it to graphically correlate formation tops in other wells.
  • Variety of data in well headers/footers.
  • DST and Core data from the WellBase data files.
  • Customizable lithology area fills and patterns.
  • Index map layers showing the location of the cross section in GeoAtlas.

Annotations

Identify, annotate and/or explain features on the cross section to enhance the understanding of the overall picture. XSection uses:

  • Rectangle and Polygons to display intra-formational lithology, oil legs, etc.
  • Arrows to point to features within the wellbore.
  • Text for notations, legends, etc.
  • Pictures to add core photographs, index title blocks, spreadsheets, etc.

 

Integration

XSection can integrate many types of data including log data, point data, seismic and image files, and supports common formats such as LAS/LBS. In addition you can print the cross section directly from XSection or by exporting as a metafile for display on a montage in GeoAtlas. 

References Management

Create effective correspondences between all the references of your well, such as Measured Depth (MD), True Vertical Depth (TVD) for a better understanding of the deviation survey data.

Data Analysis

A comprehensive set of visualization and analysis tool for any kind of oriented data. That helps:

  • Extract and visualize subsurface orientations directly from the cross sections, core images and log files
  • Analyze surface gradients
  • Graphically edit/ fine tune the formations and fault picks from the point clouds in cross sections
  • Perform fault, stratigraphic, and structural analysis in large and complex datasets

Easy to Use Interface

XSection allows the user to display any variable present in cross section. The actions available in the dynamic toolbar are classified by type and depends on the object you select. The toolbar and the mouse mode provide you with multiple actions.
