Full interactivity between all viewers
Single & multi well log plotting
Drag and drop data to create or extend plots. Graphical Edits of curves: depth & block shifting, smoothing, interpolation, data clipping, integration, curve drawing... Multiple curves from one or more wells can be edited at the same time. All aspects of layout designs are at user control.
Instantly, spread 2D cross section on every well. An interval selection on a log plot automatically interacts with the other corresponding plots.
Whenever viewers involve datasets in common (with or without the same variables on display) users may select data in one viewer and see those depths highlighted and selected in all other viewers. Selections may be saved for later retrieval and/or process control.
Techlog’s large set of viewers
Full interactivity among all viewers and user control (color mode, selection mode, multiple wells, filters and zones...) make Techlog’s viewers an easy-to-use and powerfull analysis tool. Other plotting tools include array-histograms and array-array crossplots for viewing and managing multi-sampled array data. 2D/3D Cross Plots linear and non-linear, freely calculated, fixed-point or fully customizable regression tools are available on all 2D crossplots; fully interactive rotation and zoom functions, together with filtering and zone control make the 3D crossplot a highly effective data viewing tool. Spectrum analysers allow the users to display n dimensions simultaneously on 2D panel.
Histograms & Box-Plots give two different views of statistical or distribution of univariable. Matrix/Scatter Plots are a combined display of the above plots in a matrix panel as a function of variables and wells. Quanti Plots: specialised but customisable plots for the management of parameter selection interact with the parameter tables and the results plots; users modify parameter values graphically and see the results update automatically. Plots include the Pickett Plot, Thomas-Stieber Plots, plus one-click access to Gamma Ray, Neutron and Density plots. Control of parameters on Pickett Plots can be managed through point picking, free and fixed regression, custom line construction, scroll wheels or by typing values when exactness is required..

Objective reconstruction of missing data
Quantitative parameter modelling
K.mod is designed to extract essential information from log data in order to: predict non-recorded parameters (!, K, ...), reconstruct missing or poor quality measurements and therefore compensate for bad hole conditions, environmental effects, acquisition problems, etc, bring solutions for scale shift management from core to reservoir scale, potentially reduce the need for coring and plug analysis for the subsequent appraisal wells by comparing well log and core data.
Supervised Neural Networks
Parameters can be reconstructed or modelled directly from log data, via an interactive learning process. Multi-Layer Perceptron: a powerful non-linear modelling tool that retains all the original variability in the data.
Error control Validation curve Learning curve
Fully quantified uncertainties
K.mod is not a "black box" tool: the users keep full control of the input parameters and receive clear feedback on the log quality and model quality, at all times. Uncertainties can be managed:
on inputs: back propagation method to check the contribution of each input, on output: self-organized map is categorizing data samples in the training and validation data for their effectiveness in modeling the target data, possibility to weight inputs to force the model to reach extreme values.
Interactive, easy-to-use and very fast
K.mod is based on a complex technology but remains easy-to-use. It is a straightforward but efficient tool that offers a simple and intuitive interface for an enhanced interpretation and a more accurate reservoir characterization.
Petrophysical parameter modelling: a strategic issue for static model building
The intelligent classifier
Advanced classification techniques
Automatic facies identification is playing a key role within the oil and gas E&P industry. Ipsom is a unique classification method that brings added value to interpretation workflows. The 2D indexed and probabilised self-organizing map (Ipsom) is designed for use in : • geological interpretation of well log data and facies prediction • optimal derivation of petrophysical parameters (!, k, hydraulic units...)
Comprehensive statistical tools
During the final control and validation phase, results are quantified and refined through an iterative process. High quality statistical and graphic tools with total interactivity and great ease of use, lead to a better understanding of coherence between core description, log responses and consistency on the map.
4. Application of the map. Interactive Lines (pink) elicit the facies correspondence between logs and map. Logs spectral distribution
Accurate model calibration
The key to the classification process is calibration. The aim of calibration is to give each neural unit an actual geological meaning: this is known as the indexation phase. Each neural unit is assigned a code that corresponds to a geological interpretation (detailed core description). This stage is essential for a direct interpretation of electrofacies in sedimentological terms.
1. Before classification Random distribution of the n reference node vectors.
2. After classification Rearranged nodes by pattern recognition of log responses irrespective of depth.
3. After indexation Result of Indexation. The colours refer to corebased facies definition assigned to the nodes by virtue of their depths and refined by means of the spectrum. Core Desc. Core
Ipsom improves the robustness of the reservoir modelling. Ipsom provides consistent and meaningful results that are easier and faster to control and interpret. Ipsom allows sharper evaluation of data consistency through interactive management of uncertainties.

The ultimate solution for core data interpretation
Jointly developed by Techsia and Total, Techcore combines the strengths of both contributors; Techsia brought innovative software design and efficient development plus expertise in advanced statistical interpretation methods whilst Total brought to the project more than 15 years of detailed, rigorous knowledge and experience in handling core data. Techcore incorporates robust and validated methods of data manipulation with new, state-of-the-art statistical techniques and provides this powerful combination within a fully interactive graphical user interface.
Storage, processing, integration and interpretation of core data
Within an overall integrated reservoir characterization workflow now available with Techsia software, Techcore provides the means to rapidly and effectively synthesize and combine both log and core domains. Techcore© combines robust method of data manipulation with state-of-the-art statistical techniques; it hence constitutes a powerful interpretation package using a fully interactive graphical user interface.
Capillary pressure plot
Perform specific processing tasks within one user environment, e.g. calculation of capillary functions (Thomeer, Buckley-Leverett, Lambda, WrightWooddy-Johnson and Hyperbolic Tangent methods), grain size, pore throat distributions, etc. Partition the core data into “hydraulic units” (or “petrophyscial groups”) that reflect zones in which storage and transmissivity of fluids are likely to be similar. Techsia’s extensive experience in techniques of classification, correspondence analysis and exploratory statistical tools such as Principal Components Analysis is applied for this task.
Pore throat distributions Capillary pressure classification based on Pc curve shape summary parameters
Combine the maximum amount of data available to generate “petrophysical logs”, which are fully representative of the variation in core data upscaled by rigorous methods to be comparable to the scale of the wireline or MWD log data. The upscaling is performed by reference to either continuous core description data (possibly created by picking on core images) or to the most finely resolved quantitative measurements on the core (e.g. mini-K or core-gamma) by 1D Kriging interpolation (several external drifts are possible).

Classification and normalization
Hierarchical Clustering: Dendrogram. Find similarities between wells; group wells together; if necessary, align data responses using sophisticated Gaussian analysis, group-by-group amongst wells. Decision tree • powerful classifiers where inputs are mixed and incomplete variables (qualitative and quantitative ). • rank inputs by their information gain. • deduced rules can help to understand the input data regarding the output. Classic and optimized normalization algorithms.
Linear, non-linear, polynomial and multiple lines algorithms are available. Regression and other fit lines and functions may be created and conditioned on filters, zonation, well-by-well or multi-well.
Regression Plots using interactivity with an associated layout
Fit lines may be calculated for user-defined subsets of data using the data selection tools and interactivity between viewers.
Principal Component Analysis (PCA) is a useful tool to summarize data, since it separates the dominating features in the data set. Linear Discriminant Analysis (LDA) is used to determine the best projection space to discriminate between two or more naturally occurring groups. It clarifies subsequent Cluster Analyses on users’ data. Multiple Correspondence Analysis (see Ancor tool) compares qualitative variables that may either be of similar type (observed vs predicted curves) or be of dissimilar type (geology vs petrophysics).
