I. How does PaleoScan™ handle the units?

PaleoScan™ can deal with Feet or Meters. Regarding the wells, all the data are converted in meters in the application.

II. Can we change the Coordinate Reference System?

The CRS will be handled in the 2018 version of PaleoScan™.

III. PaleoScan™ cannot launch any computation due to a lack of space on the temp file, what can I do?

When PaleoScan™ creates volumes, they are first generated at the location of the temporary file. If there is a lack of disk space, the user can change the location of the temp file via “Tools/Settings/Optimizations”.

V. How can I create Crosslines or Time Slices?

By default, PaleoScan™ always generates/displays the Inline. To generate/display the Crossline (XL)/Time Slice (TS), the user has to open a volume, then from the volume manager widget, click on the Inline tab and then click on Xline or Time Slice.

VI. How can I synchronize color bars and viewers?

To synchronize color bars, the user has to click on the viewer which has the color bar he wants to use, then keep holding down the ALT keyboard and drag and drop the color bar into the other viewer.

To synchronize viewers, the user has to keep holding down the ALT keyboard and drag and drop one viewer into another one. To desynchronize viewers, the user has to keep holding down the ALT keyboard and drag and drop one viewer into itself.

VII.Can I reduce the size of my project in order to store it?

To reduce the size of the project, the user has to click on the "data management" icon and toggle off the XL and TS directions. It is not possible to get rid of the IL direction since the other directions are computed from it.

Culture data can be created by picking a polyline and saving it as a culture data. On a time slice, horizon stack or horizon viewer, the user can pick the polyline by using the polyline mouse mode available from the main toolbar.

VIII. How can I change the style of my objects (faults, geobodies, cultures, wells, markers etc.…)?

To change the style of an object, the user has to be in selection mouse mode (F shortcut), then double click on the object to select it and then change the style of the object through the properties panel.

IX.How can I display an object in a 2D viewer?

To display an object (faults, wells, markers, geobodies etc.…), this object has to be opened in the 3D viewer. Right click on the object in the Project Browser and choose “Open in 3D". The user can also drag and drop the object into the viewer or double click on it.

X. How can I superimpose two different volumes on a 2D viewer?

To do so, the user has to open a blending viewer and then drag and drop each volume. The transparency can be adjusted by moving the cursor up and down. This type of display is also available for arbitrary lines, horizons and horizon stacks.

XI. How can I clean my window organization?

The following shortcuts can be used:

  • Ctrl+C To close all the window

  • Ctrl+T To tile all the windows

  • Ctrl+H To horizontally tile all the windows
  • Ctrl+V To vertically tile all the windows 

XII. Does PaleoScan™ automatically save my projects and objects?

PaleoScan™ will automatically save all the imported data and all the calculated volumes.

All the objects created in PaleoScan™ need to be saved manually by the user

The model grids need to be saved using the Model Grid tool bar save button. An emergency save is also automatically created every 100 propagation.

FAQ_11.png

The faults need to be saved using the Fault tool bas save button.

FAQ_12.png

The geobodies picked manually have to be saved individually.

XIII. How can I display both IL, XL and TS sections on a 3D viewer?

The user needs to drag and drop the seismic volume 3 times inside the 3D viewer, then select each section, using the selection mouse mode, (F shortcut) and change the Inline tab of the Volume Manager to Xline and Time Slice.
 

XIV. How can I create polygons?

Culture data can be created by picking a polyline and saving it as a culture data. On a time slice, horizon stack or horizon viewer, the user can pick the polyline by using the polyline mouse mode available from the main toolbar.

FAQ_13.png

The user can then select the polyline, using the selection mouse mode (F shortcut) and save it (CTRL+S). Click on Yes to save the polyline as a culture data, that will be stored under the culture data part of the polyline tab. If clicking on No, the polyline line can be saved as a polyline, which will be saved under the polyline part of the polyline tab.

  • A Culture is a 3D Polygon:
    • Displayed at Z=0 in 3D view
    • Snapped to every Time Slice and Horizon Slice in 2D view
  • A Polyline is a 2D Polygon:
    • Never displayed in 3D view
    • Mapped on a selected Horizon Viewer or on the displayed horizon of a selected Horizon Stack viewer -> This behavior enables the geobody extraction

XV. How can I apply and save a stretch/rotation to my section? How can I apply it to other viewers?

The user can use the button from the top toolbar to flip, rotate or stretch the displayed seismic section. The rotation and stretching can then be saved using the top toolbar or right clicking on the top bar of the viewer.

XVI. How can I flatten a seismic section along a specific horizon?

From the 2D viewer, the user has to click on the Horizon Flattening option available at the bottom left corner of the window. To flatten along a horizon from the database, the user needs to drag and drop the horizon from the Project Browser into the Ref Horizon drop zone and then click on OK. To flatten according to a horizon viewer, click on Viewer as an input and then select the horizon viewer on which to flatten from the pull-down menu.

The flattening can be disabled or activated at any moment thanks to the OFF/ON buttons.
