Modelling reservoirs using a 3D grid is a common tool for both the geologist and the reservoir engineer. As models increase in structural and stratigraphic complexity the process of creating these grids has become cumbersome. In many cases the results are not satisfactory to either the geologist or the engineer.
An inventory of petroleum source rocks in the World’s major sedimentary basins show that six geological intervals in Earth's history generated over 90% of the World's conventional oil and gas discoveries.
