Data Handling and Editing

Simple and efficient database

• Data families, aliases and units of measurements can be accessed and controlled through a friendly interface allow-
ing users to organize and harmonize their data.
• Customers can create their own families, aliases and units
on user, project or company levels with the possibility to
assign properties for automatic displays.
• Project Browser maintains access to all data types stored in
the project: log, core (RCAL, SCAL, descriptions), arrays
(special core data, NMR,Sonic waveform, formation pres-
sure,…), borehole images, tops/zones, perforations, check-
shots, text/annotations, core photos,…
• The users can organize the views in the Project Browser of
groups of these different data types to suit the purposes of

Data Import / Export

• Data can be selectively loaded via a buffer wizard from a variety of binary or ASCII file formats, e.g. LAS versions
1.2 2.0 and 3.0, CSV, plain text, DLIS/LIS, GeologASCII files, and SEG-Y seismic data format.
• Techlog© provides an ASCII Wizard, a unique interface to help users manipulate and convert Custom ASCII

With Techlog’s innovative design, visualizing your data has never been so easy.
Let the data speak for themselves
A fundamental requirement for detailed statistical interpretation of log and
core data is to be able to perform comprehensive Exploratory Data Analy-
sis. Techstat provides a wide range of visual and calculation tools to un-
derstand users' data.

wells together; if necessary, align data responses using sophisticated Gaus-
sian analysis, group-by-group amongst wells.

(qualitative and quantitative ).
• rank inputs by their information gain.
• deduced rules can help to understand the input data regarding the output.

Factorial Analysis
• 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 dissimi-
lar type (geology vs petrophysics).

tation methods whilst Total brought to the project more
than 15 years of detailed, rigorous knowledge and ex-
perience in handling core data.

Storage, processing, integration and interpretation of core data

• Within an overall integrated reservoir characteriza-
tion workflow now available with Techsia software,
Techcore provides the means to rapidly and effec-
tively synthesize and combine both log and core
• Techcore© combines robust method of data manipu-
lation with state-of-the-art statistical techniques; it
hence constitutes a powerful interpretation package
using a fully interactive graphical user interface.

• Perform specific processing tasks within one user envi-
ronment, e.g. calculation of capillary functions
(Thomeer, Buckley-Leverett, Lambda, Wright- Wooddy-
Johnson and Hyperbolic Tangent methods), grain size,
pore throat distributions, etc.
• Partition the core data into “hydraulic units” (or “petro-
physcial 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 Com-
ponents Analysis is applied for this task.
• 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 interpola-
tion (several external drifts are possible).

Objective reconstruction of missing data

Quantitative parameter modeling

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, environ-
mental 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 modeled directly from
log data, via an interactive learning process.

K.mod is not a "black box" tool: the users keep full control of the input parameters and receive clear feedback on the

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 effective-
ness in modeling the target data,
• possibility to weight inputs to force the model to reach extreme values.
