The Base Module contains the GOCAD Suite workflow foundations. All workflows present in the application modules (seismic, geology, and reservoir called applets) share the same earth model maintained in this Base Module. The Base Module provides the shared canvas for all application modules and environments, and its integration simplifies the learning process and helps ensure data integrity, reducing the information loss that often occurs across applications. In addition to providing the shared earth vision, the Base Module is used for rapid generation of reliable structural models for preliminary analysis. The Paradigm intuitive structural modeling workflow facilitates the import and export of data and the generation of 2D maps and cross-sections. The workflow also promotes the easy construction of accurate fault geometries and automatic fault-fault and fault-horizon contacts. The Base Module enables cost-effective analysis of seismic data and supports the case for additional data acquisition and/or prospect leasing.
Key component features of the Base Module include 3D Viewer; Log Display, Cross-Section, and Map Views; and Structural Framework Builder. The module\’s key benefits include significant cost and time savings, added value, and improved exploration success.
As the foundation of the GOCAD Suite, all other modules are integrated with the Base Module as module plug-ins. Tight integration between the modules goes beyond mere interfaces and instead operates with total data interoperability. This helps ensure data quality and accuracy when moving from application to application. Once the GOCAD Suite is opened, all modules are presented in the same window for virtually seamless interaction between modules.
A common workflow between the modules guides both the inexperienced user and the power user through the path of interpretation. Simple interpretations or complex interpretations are both easily navigated.
