Leapfrog Geothermal 3.6

Streamlining the Geothermal modelling process

Features of Leapfrog Geothermal 3.6 include:

  • Unstructured gridding for TOUGH2 flow models
  • Further improvements to the TOUGH2 workflow
  • Import and visualisation of TETRAD flow models
  • Improved visualisation of geophysical Magneto-Telluric (MT) grids
  • Well cylinder radius scaling based on numeric value
  • Inclination support for well survey measurements
  • Improved graphs and statistics

The release further enhances major features introduced in 3.3, 3.4 and 3.5 including

  • Fault rock types in TOUGH2 models
  • Upscaling of numeric well data
  • Sharing visualisations to View
  • Support for IDW (Inverse Distance Weighted) isosurfacing of geophysical gridded data
  • Time based visualisation of geophysical point data (e.g. micro-seismic)
  • Integration with the Central model management platform

TOUGH2 UNSTRUCTURED GRID SUPPORT

  • It is now possible to create a TOUGH2 flow model with an unstructured grid geometry with well locations, faults and other objects as control features. The grid is an unstructured Voronoi grid in X, Y and layered in Z.

IMPORT AND VISUALISE TETRAD FLOW MODELS

  • TETRAD flow simulation model IS and GV files can now be imported into Leapfrog Geothermal. For time-dependent simulation output attributes, a timestep slider is available to view the different timesteps available. The TETRAD grid can also be sliced or subsetted in I, J and K index directions.

IMPROVED VISUALISATION OF MAGNETO-TELLURIC GEOPHYSICAL GRIDS

  • The visualisation of magneto-telluric (MT) geophysical grids has been improved with:

    • Better performance
    • Proper transparency support
    • Slice in I, J and/or K
    • Subset in I, J and/or K

VARY WELL CYLINDER RADIUS BY NUMERIC VALUE

  • Numeric interval columns in well data can be displayed as lines or cylinders. There is a new option for displaying cylinders, whereby the radius of the cylinders can be set from a numeric interval data column in the table.

IMPROVEMENTS TO GRAPHS AND STATISTICS

  • A number of changes have been made to how graphs and statistics are displayed. The user interface is more consistent and the older Properties dialog histogram has been replaced with a more useful Table of Statistics.

    The controls for selecting points on a scatter plot now include a lasso tool for freeform drawing on the graph.

VIEW INTEGRATION WITH LEAPFROG GEOTHERMAL

  • It has never been so quick and easy to consult a colleague on a tricky model, share impactful visual information with stakeholders or update key personnel on a developing situation. View, Seequent’s web-based solution for visualising on a purpose-built scene, is fully integrated into Geothermal 3.6. View also has a brand new look coming – watch this space.

MODEL MANAGEMENT

  • Leapfrog Geothermal 3.6 further develops operability with model management platform, Central, which allows geothermal projects to be stored and managed from a single source of truth. Of particular value to the well-regulated industry, audit trails are easily maintained, security is heightened and version control issues are avoided. The platform also facilitates and improves team collaboration and decision making, especially around key challenges like making decisions while drilling.
