DionisosFlowTM is the world’s only commercially available solution for dynamic stratigraphic modeling. It is a powerful solution that allows modeling the development of stratigraphic sequences at regional scale or at field scale. The model solves the equation of sediment transport as a function of basin topography, sea level variations, and accommodation space. It ensures calibration against existing well data and seismic data. The result is a more robust and internally consistent prediction of 3D stratigraphic sequences as well as a prediction of facies distribution laterally and vertically.
DionisosFlowTM is available as a commercial software solution. Beicip-Franlab provides a large variety of Consulting services that use the DionisosFlowTM approach to make better decisions in Exploration and in Reservoir Development.
DionisosFlowTM is a powerful tool that allows explorationists to improve sequence stratigraphic interpretations. It can be used in exploration context in large variety of situations such as :
Constrain 3D stratigraphic correlations and build accurate GDE (Gross Depositional Environment) maps for whole basin or for specific intervals in both carbonate and clastic environments
Understand deep water turbidite development
Identification of stratigraphic traps (clastics and carbonates)
Understand source rock quality away from well control
Generate lithofacies maps to be used as input to reconstruct more precisely oil and gas migration pathways and accumulations.
Deep water turbidites
Beicip-Franlab consultants have a large experience in using DionisosFlowTM in deep offshore exploration. In such context, DionisosFlowTM allows mapping and delineating turbidite fan, giving the net-to-gross of the different components (sand, shale, calcarenite) for each stratigraphic sequence. DionisosFlowTM complements seismic and geologic interpretation. It helps to reduce exploration risk in slope to basinal environments.
Our exploration teams have a very good track record of successful applications of DionisosFlowTM to understand the development of stratigraphic traps. DionisosFlowTM provides a fine lithological description of the reservoir/seal.
Source rock distribution
Our basin analysis team have shown how DionisosFlowTM, with its specific organic matter module, can be successfully used to predict Type II and Type III source rock quality variations at basinal scale, for both conventional and unconventional prospection. Source rock quality is derived from bathymetry, restricted area (anoxic environment), energy, sedimentation rate, organic productivity and sea level variation.
DionisosFlowTM link with Oil and gas generation / migration models
Our exploration teams have developed workflows linking 3D DionisosFlowTM blocks with basin modeling application such as TemisFlowTM (3D petroleum system analysis). Higher vertical resolution and more predictive distribution of source rocks, reservoirs and seals improve significantly basin modeling predictions. The link is also allowing evaluating more rigorously stratigraphic trap effectiveness.
Beicip-Franlab experience includes passive margins context (Nova Scotia, Brazil, West Africa), carbonate ramp platforms (Middle East), deltaic systems (Far East Asia) and turbiditic/diapiric systems (Gulf of Mexico).
DionisosFlowTM is the IFP Group industrial solution for stratigraphic modeling. It is based on rigorous science, it is easy to use, and comes along with a large set of proposed parameters that reflect the vast experience gained in actual applications worldwide. The tool is continuously upgraded and benefits from the development carried out by IFP Energies Nouvelles and its partners associate in dedicated JIP.
High resolution sequence stratigraphy is a key discipline to understand field-scale lateral and vertical reservoir property variations and their implications on fluid production. Beicip-Franlab geoscience teams have developed original applications of DionisosFlowTM at field scale which allow capturing lateral / vertical facies changes in a way consistent with stratigraphic architecture. Out experiences includes the modeling of carbonates field heterogeneities (Middle East).
