Leading-edge fault detection and quantitative analysis

General Details


The delineation of faults and fracture networks plays an important role in understanding subsurface structural properties and ultimately aids in identifying hydrocarbon traps. At Lumina, we have developed a state-of-the-art software package, FaultDetect™, designed to produce high quality images of the fault system. FaultDetect™ contains an extensive set of tools for data conditioning, production of high resolution structural attributes, fault extraction and several fault attributes that will make fault interpretation easier and more accurate.


  • FaultDetect™ combines traditional attributes such as coherence and curvature using adaptive principal component analysis for exceptional fault imaging
  • Can be applied on high-resolution seismic from Extend™ for even greater fault image enhancement
  • Outputs a fault cube with superior fault resolution and imaging in both vertical and lateral slices


  • Analysis of results can indicate areas of potential fracturing
  • Produces superior vertical resolution
  • Provides accurate fault location and placement in three dimensions
