Our 2013 Vinland
User Group Meeting (VUGM) will be held Thursday, May 9th, 2013 at Shells offices in Calgary. Please contact Eriksfiord
May, 2013Eriksfiord is presenting a poster An integrated workflow for borehole image interpretation - structural geology, sedimentology and stress field
at the Integration geoConvention
in Calgary May 6-10, 2013
April, 2013 To investigate the impact of different DOI values on dip data Eriksfiord offers a free of use Java based DOI Sensitivity Analyzer tool on its dictionary site
Java 6 or higher is required on your computer to run this tool.

We now offer our VINLAND software
with floating licensing. (Network License)
10 year anniversary in 2011
Eriksfiord team gets together in Arizona to celebrate
Since commercial launch last year, our VINLAND software
has already seen important additional functionality, most notably
Image orientation can be North, High-Side or Arbitrary
Vuggy porosity calculator
Mogi-Coulomb criterion for shear failure
Stress influence on fractured rock permeability
For stress influence on compressing or dilating a dominant fracture set, we use a reversible model taking into account shear and effective normal stress.
When a fracture is picked on the image, its stress state is instantly displayed.
For a given stress-tensor, spacing and aperture, contours in the stereogram above shows the fractured rock permeability relative to the unstressed state.
