We have developed for PetroSynapsis a family of widgets for the spatiotemporal exploration of the properties and variables of a reservoir. PetroSynapsis widgets have spatiotemporal sampling capabilities, which means that if a property or a variable of the reservoir varies over time then this property is displayed dynamically. This feature makes these widgets an excellent tool for assessing global phenomena occurring at the oil field during the simulations.
The user can add any number of orthogonal planes in the scene. It is possible to select from the options X, Y, Z or XYZ as shown in the figure below. The interception of the three widgets shown in the figure was adjusted to the location of one of the wells. In this figure we can appreciate four instants of the spread of a simulation carried out in the reservoir. It is an artificially generated sequence of events from a Gaussian that expands in the 3D space between two horizons.
