[00:00:01.840]<v ->Hi everyone and thanks for joining us today,</v>

[00:00:03.820]for this webinar,

[00:00:04.750]about the new release of Leapfrog Geothermal 5.0.1.

[00:00:08.750]My name is Bastien Poux.

[00:00:09.970]I am the technical sales advisor for energy at Seequent.

[00:00:13.540]The objective of this webinar is to introduce you

[00:00:15.520]to the main modeling tools available in Leapfrog Geothermal

[00:00:18.590]and some of the latest improvements for the 5.0.1 release.

[00:00:22.940]For those of you, who already know Leapfrog Geothermal,

[00:00:25.410]you might find an interest in seeing,

[00:00:26.730]the new interface of leapfrog and new functionalities.

[00:00:30.540]Before we get going, just a couple go to meeting logistics.

[00:00:34.590]If you take a look at the go to web dialogue,

[00:00:37.020]you should see a place for questions.

[00:00:39.970]I won’t be answering questions during this webinar.

[00:00:42.350]So please use this questions panel to enter your questions

[00:00:45.270]and I would answer them with a personal email,

[00:00:47.180]after the webinar ends.

[00:00:50.200]These new roads is a big one for Seequent,

[00:00:51.960]in not only looks different,

[00:00:53.300]but it also has some key features

[00:00:54.980]that a lot of customers have been asking for.

[00:00:57.680]This webinar is for the geothermal product only,

[00:00:59.950]but it crosses into the realm of Central,

[00:01:02.430]our cloud-based model management and collaboration solution.

[00:01:06.600]Here is an overview of some of the new features,

[00:01:08.770]we will be discussing in this webinar.

[00:01:11.460]I will introduce them quickly here,

[00:01:13.140]before describing them in more details in the webinar.

[00:01:16.590]Firstly, there is a new user interface.

[00:01:19.570]There’s also some usability improvement,

[00:01:21.950]some well data improvement, a better mesh handling system.

[00:01:26.220]Any improvements in the interoperability.

[00:01:29.430]The new Leapfrog user interface,

[00:01:30.950]is the first thing we want to talk about,

[00:01:32.910]because there is no escaping the fact,

[00:01:34.690]that this looks different than the last release.

[00:01:37.070]Seequent has put a huge amount of effort,

[00:01:39.370]into updating the building blocks of Leapfrog

[00:01:41.970]and this has enabled us to change to a new user interface.

[00:01:46.025]The new user interface of Leapfrog is slick streamlined

[00:01:48.930]and brings cohesion across the Seequent range of products.

[00:01:52.420]Even though it may appear quite different at first glance,

[00:01:54.970]with new colors and icons, the layout, the functionalities

[00:01:58.450]and the menus remained the same they were before.

[00:02:01.600]Secondly, we really wanted to show you,

[00:02:03.770]the work we have put,

[00:02:04.680]into making your only Leapfrog experience better

[00:02:07.040]when using some of the main functionalities.

[00:02:09.640]We have made improvement to both well data and meshes.

[00:02:13.530]Let’s talk about the well data improvements.

[00:02:16.540]We’ve made improvements,

[00:02:17.540]to the processing of tasks in parallel,

[00:02:20.070]so that your well data can process

[00:02:21.830]and reload significantly quicker for some projects.

[00:02:25.040]In some instances,

[00:02:26.150]we have reduced the processing time by over 40%.

[00:02:29.760]You can now import down hold points

[00:02:31.360]at the same time as your location, survey and intervals.

[00:02:34.830]If you made a mistake when importing

[00:02:36.680]or no longer require one of your data columns,

[00:02:39.240]you can now rename it or delete it.

[00:02:41.930]Finally, use the calculation tab to categorize, combine

[00:02:45.930]and reclassify your data.

[00:02:48.220]Dealing with meshes that have issues can be difficult.

[00:02:50.690]It is often now to know where the problem is to fix it.

[00:02:53.920]This really is, we have made some changes

[00:02:55.750]to make it easier for you.

[00:02:57.260]Firstly, we have improved the way,

[00:02:58.840]that categorize the mesh issues.

[00:03:01.140]It is now clearer with errors,

[00:03:02.780]that the mesh contains from the tree view,

[00:03:04.820]instead of having to look at the properties of the mesh.

[00:03:07.890]Secondly, the tick box to view the border edge on the mesh

[00:03:11.330]has not been turned into its own separate object.

[00:03:14.400]We have added another categorization

[00:03:16.310]to the way we define non Manny formations.

[00:03:18.890]We have a soul enables, so now many fall meshes to be used,

[00:03:22.410]whereas they were not usable before.

[00:03:24.960]We have listened to your requests and added functionalities,

[00:03:27.900]to ensure that we continue to respond to your feedback.

[00:03:31.280]Visualizing depth in the scene, reordering legion item

[00:03:34.700]and being able to project a subset of the locations

[00:03:37.400]onto the typography, are all now possible,

[00:03:39.850]in Leapfrog Geothermal 5.0.1.

[00:03:42.909]I will show you these functionalities,

[00:03:44.520]in the software in a moment.

[00:03:46.550]You can now view the well traces in the scene

[00:03:48.670]and choose to show the depth markers.

[00:03:51.280]You can also customize how often these ticks are labeled

[00:03:54.450]and how big thy are, to ensure that you can still see them,

[00:03:57.090]alongside your weld data.

[00:03:59.240]Also to enhance your understanding of your world data,

[00:04:02.390]you can now visualize the downhole depth,

[00:04:04.540]of your well data in the scene.

[00:04:06.630]Legends they are the most important method,

[00:04:09.430]of communicating your category data.

[00:04:12.030]We have made changes that you can now reorder

[00:04:14.170]your unit codes in the legend.

[00:04:16.360]Displaying well data on the cross section,

[00:04:18.530]will adopt the same legend order as your base color.

[00:04:21.670]Making changes to the location elevation

[00:04:23.690]to match the typography, is not always something

[00:04:25.990]you want to do for all your wells.

[00:04:27.980]In this new radius,

[00:04:29.200]when choosing to set the elevation for your location,

[00:04:31.880]you can now apply your query filter

[00:04:33.690]for any subset of your location

[00:04:35.780]to change the elevation off.

[00:04:37.650]You’re not just limited to the topography,

[00:04:39.710]you can actually choose any surface

[00:04:41.300]to project the location zone.

[00:04:44.020]Let’s now look at the improvements in central

[00:04:46.610]where the ability to collaborate and access the data

[00:04:49.080]between files and projects

[00:04:50.650]has become far easier with the new release.

[00:04:53.550]You can use the central data room or existing projects

[00:04:56.760]to collate or import data into your project,

[00:04:59.490]increasing the flexibility on how you build

[00:05:01.730]and manage your projects and data.

[00:05:04.010]The ability to import meshes from other central projects

[00:05:06.850]into your own, was a feature of the last release.

[00:05:10.010]We have increased support of objects,

[00:05:11.670]able to be imported from an existing central projects

[00:05:14.800]to include structural data, points and poly lines

[00:05:18.420]and geological model and refined models.

[00:05:21.550]As well as being able to import from other central projects,

[00:05:24.790]you can now import from the data room

[00:05:26.390]of a projects for the files tab.

[00:05:28.780]Support has been added for many objects, including points,

[00:05:31.820]structural data and poly lines.

[00:05:34.190]You can now upload your well data into the central room

[00:05:36.930]and use this as the foundation of your project.

[00:05:39.900]Uploading new revisions of your data,

[00:05:41.460]will cause the object to appear out of date.

[00:05:44.190]Anyone using your data will then know,

[00:05:46.290]to reload to use latest version.

[00:05:48.880]That is it for the description

[00:05:50.020]of the new functionalities Leapfrog Geothermal.

[00:05:52.780]I will now jump into the program

[00:05:54.290]to give you a general overview,

[00:05:55.680]of what can be accomplished in leapfrog

[00:05:58.140]and how some of these new functionalities work.

[00:06:03.330]All right, we are now into Leapfrog Geothermal.

[00:06:06.580]This is using the last version 5.0.1,

[00:06:09.960]with its new interface.

[00:06:12.300]Some of you that already use Leapfrog Geothermal,

[00:06:15.160]might see the difference in also the icons on the left

[00:06:19.430]and the folders.

[00:06:21.140]So as a general overview of the interface,

[00:06:25.090]you have on the top left here,

[00:06:26.690]the Leapfrog Geothermal menu,

[00:06:28.800]on the left here is the product tree.

[00:06:31.000]So that’s where you would import all your object,

[00:06:33.920]that’s where you will create your geological model

[00:06:36.650]and create different export formats,

[00:06:39.430]like cross sections or movies.

[00:06:42.430]In the middle here, you have the 3D scene,

[00:06:44.370]right now we can see this saturity meshed,

[00:06:47.240]draped on the topography.

[00:06:49.750]Right above it, is a simple toolbar to slice your model,

[00:06:54.050]to divide it in different windows.

[00:06:57.610]Below the 3D scene, you have the shape list.

[00:07:00.170]So all the objects that are in the 3D scene,

[00:07:02.810]will be listed here.

[00:07:05.010]You can change their coral skin, their transparency

[00:07:08.590]and if you select them,

[00:07:10.270]then you have a property panel here on the right

[00:07:13.030]that allows you to change the slice mode, to filter,

[00:07:17.660]to change the size of the symbols, for example.

[00:07:23.620]So when you want to bring a new object that you imported

[00:07:26.670]or created in Leapfrog, it’s pretty easy.

[00:07:29.360]For example, let’s take some well data

[00:07:30.980]and we’re going to take the geology.

[00:07:32.270]So you just grab it and you drag it into the scene

[00:07:35.810]and they will be displayed.

[00:07:39.670]So to make it easier for this webinar,

[00:07:42.380]I have prepared in advance,

[00:07:45.030]a series of scenes already made,

[00:07:48.660]with a selection of objects in them.

[00:07:51.290]So we’re going to start with the basics.

[00:07:54.140]So this is for the scene of the topographic.

[00:07:58.090]So you see here in the background my digital elevation model

[00:08:00.960]that was imported and every data from the surface

[00:08:04.530]that I would important into Leapfrog would be draped on it.

[00:08:09.090]So for example, you can have a geological map,

[00:08:14.070]or it could be a satellite image.

[00:08:19.600]You can combine images with, for example, GIS objects.

[00:08:25.140]So, we’re going to look at the rivers, the road

[00:08:32.070]and we still have this saturity image in the background

[00:08:35.850]and you can add more GIS objects, for example,

[00:08:38.200]alterations zones or some lease boundaries.

[00:08:43.775]These are types of data that you will import for example,

[00:08:47.210]are geophysical data.

[00:08:50.160]So there are different formats,

[00:08:51.840]that you can import in Leapfrog Geothermal,

[00:08:54.440]the simple ones or for example,

[00:08:56.210]those 2D grids from OS motor, this is the gravity.

[00:09:01.570]Other types of data that you will need to important,

[00:09:03.930]that are very relevant to geothermal,

[00:09:06.220]are the magnetotelluric 3D grids.

[00:09:09.010]So here is an example of one.

[00:09:11.590]So this is directly from the Investran software,

[00:09:14.690]but you will be able to apply value filter on it.

[00:09:18.140]So this is up to 10 on permitter.

[00:09:21.760]So we can see the low resistivity areas

[00:09:26.410]or you can also apply index filter in the free directions,

[00:09:30.480]which will slice your model.

[00:09:34.020]And then you can move inside the model

[00:09:36.670]to visualize different areas.

[00:09:40.870]From this 3D grid you can also extract ISO surfaces.

[00:09:45.989]So that’s a tool in Leapfrog,

[00:09:48.050]using the inverse distance weighted interpolation,

[00:09:52.290]where you would be able to select a series of ISO surface

[00:09:59.210]from the value you wish to see.

[00:10:01.090]And this would create ISO surfaces

[00:10:02.600]that can be reused later in the geological model

[00:10:06.000]or conceptual model.

[00:10:08.636]Also formats that you can import involve, for example,

[00:10:12.710]some density model resulting from VOXI inversions.

[00:10:17.870]So we see it here as a grid,

[00:10:23.780]that was imported in Leapfrog

[00:10:27.340]and the same way as we did for the magnetotelluric.

[00:10:30.690]You can also create from it different ISO surfaces.

[00:10:39.390]Removed VOXI.

[00:10:45.530]Lastly and those are type of geophysical data,

[00:10:48.300]that you can import in Leapfrog are,

[00:10:52.330]the microseismicity data.

[00:10:55.560]So here what we see is a bunch of earthquakes,

[00:10:59.770]that took place over almost 10 years in this project area

[00:11:05.300]and they are sized by magnitude.

[00:11:08.020]So the rate spheres represent

[00:11:10.610]the highest magnitude earthquakes in this region.

[00:11:14.240]You can filter them.

[00:11:15.970]For example, we only want to see the earthquake,

[00:11:18.860]that have a magnitude of both free.

[00:11:25.300]So there’s only a few,

[00:11:26.590]or you can filter them by the time also

[00:11:28.630]because you imported those earthquake data

[00:11:31.200]with the time they happened down to the seconds, possibly.

[00:11:35.410]And you can filter with this tool,

[00:11:38.000]you have a little calendar, so you can change the date.

[00:11:41.400]So we can go down to only a few hours

[00:11:44.910]and then you can visualize the time series of the events,

[00:11:51.830]or you can limit them to a small time, for example,

[00:11:54.580]if you were injecting or if you were dreading,

[00:11:56.800]you can see a cluster here of earthquakes in this region.

[00:12:03.300]Some of the most important data that you can import,

[00:12:05.890]will be the well data.

[00:12:09.300]So here, this is one of the new functionality of Leapfrog,

[00:12:12.180]where you can see the depth along the well in 3D

[00:12:16.540]and anywhere you click on the well,

[00:12:18.920]you see this little blue cone marker here,

[00:12:21.450]it gives me the downhole depth.

[00:12:22.960]So if I want to select any part of the well,

[00:12:27.000]I can see right here the downhole depth

[00:12:28.927]and this is a major improvement for your workflows,

[00:12:31.170]it will definitely makes things much easier.

[00:12:37.087]Another thing to know now is,

[00:12:39.150]this legend here on the right.

[00:12:41.230]We’re not able before to do that,

[00:12:42.700]but now you can actually change the orders of the unit

[00:12:47.320]and it will adapt.

[00:12:48.820]So this will be much easier for you

[00:12:50.740]to create figures from Leapfrog.

[00:12:54.740]Also, you were able before to protect directly

[00:13:00.156]your locations, your surface location of the wells

[00:13:03.560]on the topography.

[00:13:05.210]Well, now what you can do is actually you can project them,

[00:13:09.330]on any surface, but also you can use query filter

[00:13:13.170]to select only certain of your wells

[00:13:15.720]and then you can select on which surface,

[00:13:17.490]you want to protect them.

[00:13:21.230]So where would these wells be used for?

[00:13:25.220]First, you can use, for example,

[00:13:27.670]if you have the geology like this,

[00:13:29.710]you can create geological model and different surfaces,

[00:13:33.380]like I will show you after.

[00:13:36.047]But first, I want to show you the different types of well data

[00:13:38.453]they can visualize.

[00:13:39.880]So here is the geology.

[00:13:42.330]We can also look for example, at the casing of your wells,

[00:13:49.860]you can add some other information like the fluid entries

[00:13:54.310]to see where are your most predictive zones.

[00:13:59.000]Other types of data you can look at,

[00:14:01.840]we, for example, temperature measurements,

[00:14:05.430]presented here as parents.

[00:14:09.040]You could have some geophysical logs,

[00:14:11.340]here are the Gamma ray logs.

[00:14:15.820]And you can also visualize them as graphs

[00:14:18.850]on the side of the well,

[00:14:19.690]so this allows you to look at a bunch of data

[00:14:22.450]at the same time, super, super posed a lot of data

[00:14:26.670]to create some graphics.

[00:14:30.690]So if I wanted to use,

[00:14:36.480]these wells to create surfaces for my geological model,

[00:14:39.903]this is pretty simple.

[00:14:41.990]So there’s a powerful implicit modeling tool in Leapfrog,

[00:14:47.860]called the radial basis function.

[00:14:49.780]So when you create a new geological model,

[00:14:54.230]so here we’re going to create a geological model

[00:14:56.310]from my lithology, change the resolution

[00:15:02.760]and then we’re going to select a smaller area,

[00:15:05.180]so I would just select the area of my wells.

[00:15:10.978]To geology.

[00:15:12.430]All right, so we have the smaller area.

[00:15:16.530]Can change the size of the box

[00:15:18.170]in which you’re going to build your model

[00:15:19.700]and this can even be done later once your model is complete.

[00:15:25.320]And this is going to create a new object here, GM,

[00:15:28.930]where it defines the boundary of my geological model.

[00:15:33.210]So this is the box,

[00:15:34.100]in which I will create my geological model.

[00:15:40.230]And then I can define the fall system,

[00:15:43.100]the lithologies were selected based on my wells.

[00:15:48.470]And I can create different surfaces,

[00:15:50.620]so deposits, erosion, veins or vein system,

[00:15:54.950]you can do stratigraphy.

[00:15:57.310]So this will depend on your geology of your project.

[00:16:02.400]So here we’re going to create,

[00:16:04.120]first we’re going to do a simple fault.

[00:16:06.660]So we have the geological map

[00:16:08.730]and we’re going to create that fault that’s here on surface.

[00:16:11.970]This is fault number free.


[00:16:18.960]All right, so fault number three in red.

[00:16:21.090]So we’re going to use this GIS line on surface

[00:16:23.690]to create a new fault.

[00:16:26.070]So I’m going to create a new fault from a GIS vector data.

[00:16:30.960]And here I will look for my fault number free.

[00:16:36.640]So now the software will calculate a surface

[00:16:38.460]using this line.

[00:16:40.010]So right now it only has the information on surface,

[00:16:42.560]so it’s almost vertical, but I can easily add some data,

[00:16:47.310]to create some angles to my fault.

[00:16:51.060]So I will eat my fault with some structural data.

[00:16:53.510]Those could be data that you import it from your fieldwork,

[00:16:56.560]but in that case, I’m just going to draw one.

[00:16:59.490]So I’m going to go somewhere here in the valley.

[00:17:03.150]And so what I’ve done is,

[00:17:08.830]created this little structural disc

[00:17:12.510]and then I can change this dip,

[00:17:13.620]so we’re going to do something like 80°, all right.

[00:17:19.380]And when I save,

[00:17:21.650]the software will actually recalculate the fault

[00:17:24.370]and make it deep.

[00:17:26.400]All right.

[00:17:27.630]So this is how you create your fault

[00:17:29.280]and then you can create all your fault

[00:17:31.130]and say how each of them interact with the other,

[00:17:34.730]which one’s top on which one.

[00:17:37.540]Just going to stop to this one for this example

[00:17:40.480]and I’m going to create a survey.

[00:17:41.860]So I’m going to create one of the lithology,

[00:17:44.440]so between the in and bright and the end deposit pressure.

[00:17:48.360]So I would simply create here a deposit from my lithologies

[00:17:54.060]and I will select my en embryat,

[00:17:55.390]and the contact pillows with my andestic breccia.

[00:18:01.527]Leapfrog will create this surface

[00:18:04.410]that goes through the wells.

[00:18:06.390]So this is the first interpretation,

[00:18:08.330]but I can totally edit this manually.

[00:18:11.620]So I can draw, I can edit with a polyline

[00:18:17.140]and the way to do this will be,

[00:18:19.090]I will look at my model from above,

[00:18:22.430]make a slice where I want to draw,

[00:18:24.750]so for example, here, this surface,

[00:18:27.960]we’re going to draw simply our polyline here,

[00:18:32.949]see it’s going horizontal and save

[00:18:36.180]I’m going to see my surface is going to adapt to automatically,

[00:18:39.110]to match both the well data

[00:18:41.730]and this polyline that I just drew.

[00:18:48.320]Right now, it doesn’t show any offset,

[00:18:50.620]but I can simply go into my fault system

[00:18:54.380]and activate my fault and this will recalculate,

[00:18:58.920]a surface on each side of the fault actually.

[00:19:02.790]So here I go.

[00:19:05.550]And if I hide my fault,

[00:19:07.970]you see that it has calculated an offset,

[00:19:09.600]based on the data on both sides.

[00:19:11.610]You don’t have to actually, you can have a lithology that,

[00:19:16.030]doesn’t take in account the fault.

[00:19:18.110]So for example, you can say that one of your lithology

[00:19:21.580]is not affected by this fault because it’s more recent

[00:19:24.780]and you can create surfaces like this,

[00:19:26.560]that will not take the fault in account

[00:19:30.250]and will just consider all the data available.

[00:19:33.000]So this one is an intrusion, for example.

[00:19:37.850]So once you create all your surface,

[00:19:39.610]you activate all your fault.

[00:19:42.010]You end up with a nice looking geological model,

[00:19:46.170]like this one, where you see yellow different fault

[00:19:49.020]and the fault intersections, the wells,

[00:19:51.400]different intrusions, the fault offsets,

[00:19:54.400]some faults have no offset in some lithologies.

[00:20:02.250]So this is, how you can create,

[00:20:03.560]some very complex geological model

[00:20:05.090]with much more wells than this,

[00:20:06.793]this is just as an example here.

[00:20:10.970]Now you can create also what we call numerical models.

[00:20:13.730]So this is when you have any type of numerical data

[00:20:16.620]like temperature, pressure, or geochemistry for example,

[00:20:20.730]you will create some ISO surfaces, arrange your data.

[00:20:25.200]So for this example, I will take care of the temperature.

[00:20:28.640]So those are my temperature logs in my wells

[00:20:31.230]and I will create a numeric model.

[00:20:37.590]So we’re going to be working on the temperature data

[00:20:43.340]and we are going to select temperature for the box,

[00:20:47.950]we’re just going to create a model in this small area.

[00:20:54.050]We’re not over the resolution.

[00:20:58.290]And okay.

[00:21:00.350]By default it’s going to create free ISO surfaces,

[00:21:05.230]but we are going to manually change

[00:21:07.780]which value we want to see.

[00:21:09.210]So in the output, I will select 100, 150, 300

[00:21:17.790]and then I will add 250 and 300.

[00:21:23.270]So I will create five different ISO surfaces.

[00:21:25.560]So it’s going to reprocess and I have my ISO surfaces here.

[00:21:34.410]I can look at them and see.

[00:21:37.740]The same way this can be edited, this is the first base.

[00:21:41.650]So you have different way to edit your numeric models.

[00:21:44.650]You can either go into the properties of the interpolant

[00:21:48.360]and change the type of interpolant, change the drift,

[00:21:52.010]the range, you can also apply your trend,

[00:21:57.042]or you can manually decide,

[00:21:58.690]to change the behavior of those surfaces.

[00:22:02.640]So for example, the same way as the geological model

[00:22:06.030]we did for our surface, we’re going to do for temperature.

[00:22:09.150]So the yellow here correspond to temperature of 200°.

[00:22:14.920]So I’m going to be trolling at 200°.

[00:22:24.890]So we see here an area, for example,

[00:22:27.980]here we’re going to be drawing

[00:22:35.460]and we’re going to give to be area, hectares.

[00:22:40.120]Then I save and it’s going to recalculate,

[00:22:41.790]not only my 200° ISO surface,

[00:22:44.010]but it’s going to adapt the ISO surfaces

[00:22:47.390]based on this temperature data.

[00:22:50.090]So you can manually edit,

[00:22:52.070]with a lot of flexibility or temperature models.

[00:22:58.760]So this is the different types of model you can create,

[00:23:00.940]but then using the different data and models you created,

[00:23:05.300]you can actually see how they connect to each other.

[00:23:08.430]So for example, what we did, is we evaluated

[00:23:12.880]our temperature model directly on the fault.

[00:23:16.510]So what you see,

[00:23:17.620]is the temperature distribution on the fault.

[00:23:20.460]So this is very useful when you want to draw a new well

[00:23:23.600]to target the hottest area, where there is a fault.

[00:23:27.820]You can do the same thing on a lithology.

[00:23:33.610]So for example,

[00:23:34.443]this is the temperature distribution on my basement.

[00:23:40.380]Leapfrog is also very useful to create conceptual model

[00:23:43.530]because all those data you integrated in Leapfrog,

[00:23:46.260]you can actually visualize them in the same scene.

[00:23:50.590]So to create is usually used a lot in geothermal

[00:23:55.380]as a conceptual model.

[00:23:56.570]So we see here, the low resistivity clay cap,

[00:23:59.900]we have the main temperature ISO surfaces,

[00:24:03.960]to show us this areas of higher heat flow.

[00:24:08.200]And we look at the temperature distribution on the wells.

[00:24:11.110]We have the fluid entries,

[00:24:12.780]all that allows you to better understand your resource.

[00:24:15.800]So we could imagine some flow coming for that fault

[00:24:18.650]and more permeability at the 40 intersection here.

[00:24:22.310]So if you were to draw new Wells, for example,

[00:24:25.010]this would be very useful to target your new well,

[00:24:28.120]below the clay cap, hot and permeable area.

[00:24:33.600]But this is what we are going to do now.

[00:24:38.300]So with this scene, we selected two faults,

[00:24:41.860]that we think are the most promising for the new well

[00:24:45.390]and we are going to draw a new well here.

[00:24:49.520]So there is a well planning tool in leapfrog,

[00:24:53.690]directional well planning tool.

[00:24:57.930]And when you build a well,

[00:25:01.510]you can create different section for your well.

[00:25:04.190]And for each of the sections,

[00:25:05.410]you can define the type of section.

[00:25:08.030]So you’d have building an angle,

[00:25:10.250]or you’re going to build an angled

[00:25:11.940]and then hold the same as emit an inclination

[00:25:15.440]for a certain distance or the opposite.

[00:25:19.150]So in that case, in those free caves,

[00:25:20.820]you define the target and then you adapt your well design.

[00:25:24.150]In the case, you want to design your well

[00:25:26.110]and see where it goes,

[00:25:27.410]you can also build to land,

[00:25:28.970]which means that you’re going to define the land for section

[00:25:31.590]and then to build up rate and the estimate,

[00:25:35.060]or you going to define the inclination you want to reach

[00:25:38.830]and the build up rate and you going to see where it brings you.

[00:25:45.210]So we’re going to do pretty simple well here.

[00:25:48.810]What you start by doing is you going to say,

[00:25:51.670]where your well is on surface,

[00:25:53.320]so we’re going to put it here.

[00:25:56.390]So my weight is starting here

[00:25:58.607]and it is starting right now with a hundred meters vertical.

[00:26:02.680]That is usually in geothermal.

[00:26:04.740]We’re going to make it a bit longer.

[00:26:06.950]So now we have 500 meters.

[00:26:14.115]We going to make it a bit larger, so that we see better, right.

[00:26:19.580]So for the next section, what we’re going to do is easily,

[00:26:22.950]just build an angle and hold to a certain target.

[00:26:25.680]So here I can just select in my fault is in anywhere

[00:26:30.410]and that’s where my well is going to go.

[00:26:34.960]First to hold, sorry, 500 meters.

[00:26:39.370]And then I create a new section

[00:26:41.300]and this new section is going to be the build and hold.

[00:26:44.550]In here I select where I want to go.

[00:26:47.340]And here I can now change the door I crate.

[00:26:52.840]And if I want after that, I can add another section,

[00:26:56.940]that’s going to be hold to make sure I go through my fault

[00:27:00.100]to managing certainty and I will add 300 meters.

[00:27:06.920]So now I’m passing through the fault, okay.

[00:27:09.740]At any time I can change the target of my section

[00:27:14.040]and the design is going to adapt.

[00:27:20.249]In the case I don’t want to select the target.

[00:27:23.830]I can also just build to a certain inclusion,

[00:27:29.150]so after my 500 meters vertical,

[00:27:32.280]I’m going to build at a rate of 2° per 30 meters,

[00:27:36.250]to reach a target inclination of 50

[00:27:41.930]and target azimuth will be something,

[00:27:44.930]yeah, 260 is pretty much a direction of the fault.

[00:27:49.420]So it’s creating my section

[00:27:52.040]and then after that, I can add a new section into hold.

[00:27:57.170]If I do for a long distance,

[00:27:58.858]I’m likely going to go for my fault.

[00:28:03.220]This can be changed at any time,

[00:28:04.590]if I want to change the buildup rate,

[00:28:06.580]you can see the well will adapt

[00:28:09.660]and I can also change the azimuth.

[00:28:13.530]Am I, whether you going to turn.

[00:28:17.270]So we’re going to make it go for the fault,

[00:28:19.910]260 will go for the fault.

[00:28:23.810]So on plan well number one,

[00:28:26.720]what I have done is I’ve erected my geological model.

[00:28:31.130]So now you can see on it,

[00:28:32.430]the expected lithologies we’re going to encounter

[00:28:34.560]when we drill the well.

[00:28:38.170]And I can also look for example,

[00:28:39.660]the temperature distribution,

[00:28:42.080]that’s going to be lower.

[00:28:43.020]So this way I can find what would be the best well location

[00:28:47.010]to rect maximum temperature.

[00:28:52.250]And these wells can also be exported as a drilling plan.

[00:28:55.800]So with the typical values and data that are required

[00:29:00.290]for drilling engineers to plan the drilling.

[00:29:07.470]you can also easily create cross sections in Leapfrog.

[00:29:12.010]So here is an example, this one is in the 3D scene.

[00:29:17.143]How is the legend?

[00:29:20.660]But you can also create, export some PDFs.

[00:29:27.570]So you created cross section in 2D

[00:29:29.800]and here you see the wells, the temperature,

[00:29:32.400]ISO surface, the lithology

[00:29:34.380]and you will be able to export this as a PDF,

[00:29:39.140]but also you can do a PNG or geo GIF,

[00:29:41.430]so that it will be already geo referenced.

[00:29:45.230]Those sections don’t have to be planner.

[00:29:49.490]You can actually also create some fence section,

[00:29:57.800]with have different sections in them.

[00:30:02.214]And also very useful tool in Leapfrog Geothermal,

[00:30:05.030]is the possibility to export into different formats

[00:30:08.660]for flow simulations.

[00:30:10.520]So currently we have mold flow, fee flow, TOUGH2,

[00:30:13.570]So you can convert in those three formats,

[00:30:15.150]but we can also import a Tetrad models.

[00:30:18.750]So when you create TOUGH2.

[00:30:25.117]You’ll take your geological model and you will convert it,

[00:30:28.820]you will define these grids,

[00:30:29.810]so it can be smaller blocks in the middle,

[00:30:32.330]in the center of your projects of your projective area

[00:30:35.440]and larger blocks on the outside.

[00:30:37.680]So here we see blocks based on the lithologies,

[00:30:41.240]but you can also add defaults

[00:30:44.460]so that we can define different parameters for the faults,

[00:30:47.480]but also see other four of them fourth intersections.

[00:30:52.440]So when you create your TOUGH2 model,

[00:30:56.280]so you have the possibility to integrate here,

[00:30:59.410]all the parameters of your different lithologies,

[00:31:03.330]so in design decide and you will define the density,

[00:31:05.940]the permeability in the three directions, specific heat,

[00:31:09.750]the pressure, but you can also do the same for the fault

[00:31:12.696]and the fault intersection,

[00:31:13.770]because they have different permeability

[00:31:15.910]than the lithologies.

[00:31:20.320]You can also input all the parameters

[00:31:22.170]for your flow simulation.

[00:31:23.300]You define the different type of TOUGH2 engine

[00:31:26.090]and then you will have here all the parameters

[00:31:28.750]cut it as it is in TOUGH.

[00:31:31.725]There you can integrate and the boundary quotations,

[00:31:34.710]if you have any wells with predictive areas,

[00:31:38.730]you can enter them as generators.

[00:31:40.720]And this can be exported as a TOUGH2 input,

[00:31:44.570]so that you can go ahead with,

[00:31:46.570]your history matching and forecasting.

[00:31:50.280]This is a regular grid of TOUGH2 above.

[00:31:52.820]You can also create some irregular Voronoi grinding,

[00:31:58.950]depending on the types of model that you prefer.

[00:32:08.630]And once you have a new simulation,

[00:32:11.010]you can reimport the output results here directly.

[00:32:16.420]So I don’t have for this example,

[00:32:17.860]but I got another project,

[00:32:20.780]where we have the result of the simulation.

[00:32:23.710]So this is similarly geological model on the grid

[00:32:27.130]with only two faults.

[00:32:29.350]And when you reimport the output,

[00:32:32.730]you will be able to select the different parameters

[00:32:35.860]that have been simulated.

[00:32:37.610]So for example, if you look at the pressure,

[00:32:40.670]we’re going to go where our wells are.

[00:32:44.290]So I’m going to flat slice through the wells.

[00:32:53.400]And when we move through time,

[00:32:55.790]we’re going to see that there is a pressure drop

[00:32:58.650]in this reservoir, during the time simulated.

[00:33:03.320]The same way, besides the pressure,

[00:33:06.870]another good one to look at, will be the gas saturation.

[00:33:10.320]So the steam and liquid water.

[00:33:13.160]So if I remove the liquid water, all I see is just a steam

[00:33:18.400]and I can see that in relation to the drop in pressure,

[00:33:22.610]during the time of simulation,

[00:33:24.870]there will be an increase in the steam,

[00:33:29.920]in the top of the reservoir.

[00:33:33.090]For the second part of this webinar,

[00:33:34.600]I will give you a quick overview of Seequent central

[00:33:37.110]and the new improvement with these new release.

[00:33:40.820]First, in the online web portal,

[00:33:43.480]this is where you can access your projects

[00:33:45.240]and manage your users.

[00:33:46.990]If I go back into my geothermal model,

[00:33:50.070]I will access a history of all the past publications,

[00:33:53.280]with their date and the author.

[00:33:55.690]I can also manage the users for this particular project

[00:33:58.750]and change their level of access.

[00:34:02.500]I can also look and share some files,

[00:34:05.540]such as geological map, PDF reports,

[00:34:09.610]or any other types of formats,

[00:34:11.340]it doesn’t have to be Leapfrog specific.

[00:34:14.010]And it also does version control on these files

[00:34:16.890]that you upload.

[00:34:18.620]Here we can see there are different version,

[00:34:20.080]of this geological map.

[00:34:22.680]Now let’s have a look at the browser.

[00:34:26.000]The central browser allows every team member,

[00:34:28.040]to access the models that have been published

[00:34:30.180]and visualize them in a 3D environment.

[00:34:32.580]We don’t need the Leapfrog Geothermal license,

[00:34:34.410]to access the browser,

[00:34:35.730]but you need to have the necessary rights

[00:34:37.390]provided by the server admin.

[00:34:39.920]When you select one of the projects available on the server,

[00:34:43.720]you will be redirected to the story of the models

[00:34:46.090]previously published for this project.

[00:34:48.810]This allows you to go back quickly to the previous version

[00:34:51.620]and compare the different interpretations with the new data.

[00:34:55.160]When you select one of the revisions,

[00:34:56.910]you obtain the information about the data in that model

[00:35:00.000]and you can also see the comments left by other team members

[00:35:02.970]or any type of file that was shared

[00:35:04.580]with this particular revision.

[00:35:06.680]Click on one of the comment

[00:35:08.420]and access directly to the 3D model in the 3D scene.

[00:35:13.370]The data directly downloaded from the cloud

[00:35:15.600]and not stored on the computer.

[00:35:17.500]You can choose to reply to one of the comment.

[00:35:19.920]You can also change the layers

[00:35:21.310]and the object that you are visualizing in 3D

[00:35:24.650]and decide to leave your own comment.

[00:35:29.150]Let’s now go back into Leapfrog Geothermal

[00:35:30.990]and look at some of the new central functionalities

[00:35:33.040]in this release.

[00:35:35.340]In this new release, there are several new types of data

[00:35:37.557]and objects that can be imported for central,

[00:35:40.200]either from another model or a version of the model

[00:35:43.140]or from the data room.

[00:35:45.180]To make sure you always work,

[00:35:46.340]with the most up to date well data,

[00:35:48.430]you can store them in the data room

[00:35:49.980]and easily reload the latest version of the files.

[00:35:53.250]For other types of files, such as points,

[00:35:55.650]you can import the files from central,

[00:35:57.670]either from another model

[00:35:59.210]or from previous revision of the same model.

[00:36:02.210]You can also import a file store in the data room.

[00:36:06.690]This is also the case for the poly lines,

[00:36:08.990]as well as the structural model data.

[00:36:12.920]You can now also important geological model,

[00:36:15.021]from another project or from a past revision of your model.

[00:36:20.420]This will appear in leapfrog as a static copy.

[00:36:24.140]For example, here we select a previous version

[00:36:27.480]and you can see the geological model and load it.

[00:36:30.740]It’s currently already here in my folder

[00:36:34.350]and I can visualize it at the same time as the new model

[00:36:37.040]to look at the differences.

[00:36:39.710]Thank you for attending this webinar.

[00:36:41.140]I hope you enjoyed it and are excited about,

[00:36:43.470]trying out the new Leapfrog Geothermal.

[00:36:46.000]If you have any question,

[00:36:47.230]feel free to type it in the question box,

[00:36:49.200]or send us an email at [email protected].
