GeoGraphix 2019.2

The NEW GeoGraphix & GVERSE 2019.2 comes with security features that help administrators prevent accidental data loss by restricting who can import data into GeoGraphix. The latest release of GeoGraphix and GVERSE includes rapid prospect generation, fully integrated 3D interpretation and well planning, integrated log analysis, and much more.

What's new in GeoGraphix 2019.2?

New security features that allow project administrators to

Limit users who can import project data

Prevent accidental data overwrites

Generate detailed historical reports


Geosteer wells faster and with greater accuracy with smartStrat. Geoscientists geosteer within the geomodel and add new data on-the-fly – to keep the bit in the zone.

What’s New in Data Management and Mapping


All GeoGraphix applications support the latest ESRI ArcGIS 10.6.x versions.


Project and Database Security Added
GeoGraphix has implemented database security using database roles so that only specific users can perform certain data management tasks. This feature lets you:

  • Access information on users in a GeoGraphix database/project.
  • Access information on users importing data into a GeoGraphix database/project through vendor imports, log LAS imports or spreadsheet   imports.
  • Control who is allowed to import data into a project or add/edit formation picks to prevent accidental y overwriting data.
  • Access information on import history.

Viewing Layer History
To view a history of shapefile layers available in GeoGraphix projects, select Tools >> Layer History from the main menu in Project Explorer. The Layer History dialog displays the following information:

  • The number and type of layers associated with each map
  • The AOI where the layer resides.
  • The date the layer was last modified, and the user who modified it.
  • The date the layer was created and the user who created it.
  • The WellBase filter used to create the layer.

In the Layer History dialog, you can also:
  • Apply a date filter to return only the last layers updated.
  • Refresh the layer history to provide updated information on new layers created in a project by clicking the Refresh Catalog button.
  • Export the layer list in a *.csv file format.

Viewing History of Import Operations
To view import history information, select Tools >> Import History from the main menu in ProjectExplorer. The Import History dialog box is displayed and contains the following information:

  • The names of the vendor data files imported via Defcon, the Spreadsheet Importer, or the LAS file import tool in GVERSE Petrophysics.
  • The location of the file on disk.
  • The duration of the import.
  • The quantity and type of data imported


Row Changed Date Added

A Row Changed Date field has added to all database tables exposed in QueryBuilder. The Row Changed Date enables the creation of filters to limit the number of records returned by using the date the records were last imported or updated in the project.

Displaying Total Number of Records
For queries resulting in more than 5000 records, QueryBuilder now displays the total number of records returned by the query.


Secure Access to Data
With Project and Database Security enabled in GeoGraphix, users can be assigned the import role allowing for improved and secure data management. This role lets the user:
  • Import data into GeoGraphix and perform certain bulk data operations in WellBase.
  • IChange the ownership sources by assigning sources to GeoGraphix users.
  • IChange the state of a source to public or private.

DST Table Remarks Field Character Length Increased
The character length of the Remarks field in the DST table is now 1024 characters

Release 2019.2 Feature Review

GeoGraphix® 2019.2 Release Overview

GVERSE® Geophysics software is a powerful, fully integrated 2D and 3D seismic interpretation system that provides a full range of interpretation capabilities, attribute analysis, and mapping tools.
What’s new in GVERSE Geophysics?

  • Interactive Synthetic in 3D
  • Geobody extraction from Seismic
  • Channel Picking
  • Advanced Horizon Picking

GVERSE® Geomodeling is a powerful integrated solution for subsurface geological/reservoir modeling. GVERSE Geomodeling combines geology, geophysics, petrophysics, GIS, and engineering workflows into a single application. With real-time 3D visualization of the developing geomodel, geoscientists can build subsurface interpretations quickly and generate cost-effective field development plans.
What’s new in GVERSE Geomodeling?

  • Modeling regions for enhanced performance
  • Aggregate surface color fills for a common color palette across 3D surfaces
  • Single surface mode display for fast switching between surface displays
  • Toggle well and inter-well points on map on and off
  • Unique symbols for wells and interwell points
  • Block or “gun barrel” plots to determine well spacing
  • Customized Command Controls for your favorite features

GVERSE Field Planner offers powerful features to reduce field development time and cost. GVERSE Field Planner lets development geologists create, save, analyze and manage multiple field plan scenarios to drive optimal hydrocarbon production.
What’s new in GVERSE FieldPlanner?

  • Avoid surface hazards – rivers, buildings, high slope terrain (DEM), and environmentally sensitive areas when planning pad locations
  • Avoid subsurface hazards - existing wells and subsurface geo-hazards
  • Define leases, tracts, drilling units and easily edit setbacks
  • Flexibility to add surface and subsurface hazard polygons using shapefiles

GVERSE Planner gives you the ability to visualize geologic surfaces, quickly generate proposed surveys and geoprognosis reports, and easily make changes to existing plans. GVERSE® Planner fully integrates with LMKR GeoGraphix, enabling efficient well planning.
What’s new in GVERSE Planner?

  • Steam Assisted Gravity Drainage (SAGD) workflows for planning producer and injector wells.
  • Duplicate and move existing pad and well configurations to other locations in the field plan.

GVERSE® Petrophysics is a 64-bit petrophysical application designed to assist geoscientists and petrophysicists in analyzing and interpreting well log data and characterizing the reservoir using advanced log interpretation workflows in a multi-well multi-user environment.
What’s new in GVERSE Petrophysics?

  • 64-bit application removes memory restrictions
  • Ribbon-based UI for quick task-oriented feature navigation
  • Modeless UDE Dialog Box stays open during scrolling
  • Completion curves for display and UDE models
  • UDE isoline functions from charts for use in UDE models

GVERSE Connect helps you integrate well, seismic, and maps in an integrated interpretation environment. With the latest release, now you can work with your Petrel data with even more ease. GVERSE Connect 2019.2 works seamlessly with Petrel 2018.2 to allow fast database to database exchange so you get the best of both the worlds.
What’s new in GVERSE Connect?

  • Transfer of data to required wells only
  • Tracking and auditing of all transferred data through a comprehensive logging mechanism
  • Data overwrite options that allow synchronizing of well data between Petrel and GeoGraphix
  • Source and formation lists to limit data transfer to selected data only
  • Saving user preferences to reduce setup and transfer time

GVERSE Attributes enables geoscientists to harness the full power of seismic attributes by drastically reducing the time, effort and disk space required for attribute analysis. Fast, on-the-fly computation, and real-time visualization of seismic attributes in a multi-pane viewer or in a 3D environment lets interpreters perform detailed, in-depth attribute analysis quickly and efficiently, maximizing the value of their seismic data.

In our latest release of GeoGraphix & GVERSE, we’ve added database administration tools that help prevent accidental data loss by restricting who can import into GeoGraphix projects. We’ve also added powerful new features for rapid prospect generation, fully integrated 3D interpretation and well planning, integrated log analysis, and much more.
