The original vision for the SAFARI project is to provide a one-stop database for finding analogues for exploration prospects and producing fields.
The most common form of analogues is outcrops, and SafariDB contains information on 300+ outcrops. More than half of the outcrops have photorealistic virtual outcrop models (VO) associated to them which can be accessed through a purpose built, online 3D web viewer. They cover a wide spectrum of depositional environments, basin types and palaeoclimates. The outcrops are also a source of geometric data for reservoir modelling and the database contains over 5500 measurements. In Phase 3 new tools were also developed for extracting semi-variograms and MPS training images. The database includes a purpose-built map GIS tool for finding modern analogues, filtered by depositional environment, climate and basin type; data on shallow seismic analogues and a newly developed production database – all linked through the common SAFARI data standard.
The main theme for Safari phase 4 is expanding upon the existing platform to incorporate analogues for a broader range of reservoir systems, following the philosophy that has been successfully developed and implemented over the past ten years. There are three principal goals for Phase 4:
