Deterministic Fluid Modelling

Deterministic Fluid Modelling

We use deterministic fluid modelling to integrate all the geological elements and processes that are fundamental to the evaluation of a petroleum system. The same methodology is currently being applied to study the formation of organic H2 in deep sedimentary basins.

Deterministic fluid modelling uses digital data of one or more petroleum systems to reconstruct the evolution of all elements involved as a function of geologic time. It provides a record of the generation, migration, accumulation and loss of petroleum during basin evolution. Calibration to available natural data constrains the model, while sensitivity studies are used to assess the scope of possible alternatives leading to the same results.


Models can be performed in 1, 2 or 3D. We use the suite of Trinity T3 and Genesis (Zetaware), as well as Petromod®(SLB) basin modelling software.

See our examples of 1D, 2D or 3D modelling exercises.
