2D Modelling

2D modelling: Geologic evolution of a basin transect

This technique provides the burial history along a basin transect, reconstructs the evolution of physical properties of individual sedimentary units as functions of depth or time, and calculates the speed with which kerogen breaks down under thermal stress to generate petroleum as a function of time and depth. In addition to the 1D outputs, prospect and kitchen areas can be modelled and rough phase and compositional predictions can be made.
