BRIGGS COLOUR CUBING – A POWERFUL VISUALISATION TOOL FOR STRATIGRAPHIC CORRELATION AND FACIES TYPING
Vanessa Lim, Principal Petrophysicist, Woodside Energy
Effective visualisation of multi-dimensional data to understand their inter-relationships can often be challenging. Common techniques to visualise more than two sets of log attributes include X-Y-Z plots and ternary diagrams. Depth information is however lost in these forms of presentations. Methods to visualise multi-dimensional data in a depth sequence are lesser known but the ability to do so can be a powerful tool to enhance our comprehension and understanding of geological and petrophysical variations with depth.
An innovative method named Briggs colour cubing will be presented as a visualisation tool that can reveal relationships and vertical variations in three petrophysical attributes using a depth-based colour spectrum. Examples will be shown on how this method has been applied and how it has the potential to considerably enhance our ability to recognise and identify facies types and stratigraphic markers across wells.
