DionisosFlow® is a unique industrial package for generating 4D forward stratigraphic models in under-explored and complex areas while assessing the interaction between accommodation space, sediment supply and transport through a combined simulation of sedimentary processes (continental to marine siliciclastics, carbonates, and organic matter).
Providing a physically sound geo-history model, DionisosFlow® helps in delimiting:
geometry and facies of reservoir bodies
extension and thickness of seals
distribution, nature and potential of source rocks
paleo-geometries of sedimentary basins
DionisosFlow® has been validated successfully through numerous geological studies around the world, including complex geological settings such as the Middle-East Cretaceous carbonate platform, Gulf of Mexico salt-driven tectonics province, Niger delta turbiditic system or the intra-cratonic depression in North Africa. DionisosFlow® has also been successfully applied for delineating subtle stratigraphic traps in mature basins.
Used with CougarFlow® for uncertainty and risk analysis, DionisosFlow® models provide valuable information in a probabilistic manner for well-informed decision making, going beyond classical best and worst case scenarios.
Accounting for subsidence rate, eustasy and sediment supply, DionisosFlow® simulates sediment erosion, transport and deposition as well as local carbonate and organic matter production.
Carbonate production is modeled using bathymetry, wave/drift energies and ecological controlling factors. Sediment transport is controlled by combining river discharge, wave impact, and slope parameters as well as flooding and slope instability for catastrophic sedimentary processes.
