Vulcania Energy, on behalf of MEPC, recently harnessed OpendTect's AI-based fault interpretation to supercharge seismic analysis in an offshore West African field.

Within this reservoir lie complex carbonate turbiditic deposits, molded by gravity's touch, presenting a captivating challenge for both human experts and AI.

This endeavor has sparked thought-provoking questions:

  • Are AI-based interpretations eclipsing human expertise in pinpointing critical faults and fault zones?
  • Does AI's interpretation align with the primary faults and zones detected by human SMEs?
  • Do human interpretations tend to idealize fault plane geometry?
  • Can AI-based insights provide a valuable second perspective on primary and secondary faults?

What do you think?
