Fluid Contact Finder

Fluid Contact Finder is used to detect subtle hydrocarbon-related seismic anomalies and to pinpoint gas-water, gas-oil and oil-water contacts. FCF uses the power of stacking along depth contour lines to enhance such anomalies. FCF is based on ideas from Jan Gabe van der Weide and Andries Wever of Wintershall Noordzee BV.

"Fluid Contact Finder is a powerful tool that’s easy to use and helps us to better visualize and define possible gas-water contacts."
--Jorien Schaaf, Wintershall
