Eriksfiord applies mathematics to save image logs

Eriksfiord applies mathematics to save an image log else thought lost.

Since commercial launch, 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 and Stassi D Alia 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.
