Organic Facies (OF-Mod development phase 2)

Organic Facies (OF-Mod development phase 2)

A new development phase for OF-Mod (Organic Facies Model) software that simulates the deposition and burial of organic carbon in marine environment in 3D.

The simulation results can be used to predict the spatial and temporal occurrence of source rocks. At present, measured data are used only for calibration of the modelling results. The new development aims to use both measured data and general facies definitions to characterize the depositional environment being modelled. To enable a smooth transition between different facies and their properties, a fuzzy logic approach will be used. The project currently has four sponsors (2010-2013).
