Velocity Model from Well Checkshots HowTo VideoDUG Insights Velocity model from Well Checkshots process builds a structurally compliant 3D velocity model using timedepth information from your wells. Its fast and easy to use. The models are dynamic and calculated onthefly, so you can tweak checkshots and adjust the horizons to really finetune your results. Find out more about this process! 


Vel Layercake from laterally varying velocity horizons HowTo VideoWith a few horizons and velocity maps, you can create a detailed, structurally compliant velocity model using just one process! Check out this video on how take DUGInsight’s Volume Maths tool to the next level. Build 2D or 3D models layerbylayer from time/depth or velocity horizons, and even incorporate V0K functions! 


Creating Velocities (Vertical Merging) HowTo VideoWith so many approaches to creating velocity models, some will invariably perform better than others but how can you use the best parts of two models? Heres a safe way to combine two velocity models at a horizon or time, while maintaining the timedepth relationships from each. Dont settle for two reasonable models! Use this technique and DUGInsights volume merge to create one great one! 


Creating Velocities (Smooth Spatial Merging) HowTo VideoGot 2D velocities over here and a 3D model over there, but you need timedepth conversion everywhere? DUGInsight can help you out! Using a simple merge to combine models can result in discontinuities where velocity models dont tie. In this video, we show how to use blending zones between surveys to get a smooth transition between two different velocity models. Another useful workflow in DUGInsight! 


Spatially merge two volumes smoothly WorkflowSeismic surveys come in different shapes, sizes and spatial locations. We will cover two examples to blend seismic, or velocity volumes, together to form a composite of two or more smaller volumes. Both methods use a combination of volume maths, horizons and polygons. 


Spatially blend partially overlapping volumes WorkflowAn alternate workflow for spatially blending velocity volumes when one volume does not completely enclose the other. 


Creating Velocities (Constant Models) HowTo VideoNeed to create a basic velocity model for reconnaissance or to quickly test time/depth conversion? DUGInsights volume maths is here to help! 


Creating Velocities (Layered Models) HowTo VideoAdding layers to a velocity model helps improve the quality of timetodepth conversion. Using DUGInsights processes, we explore creating structurally compliant, layered models. We tackle creating layered models in 2D and 3D using a volume maths expression, and follow up with a layered modelbased approach. This is a great introduction to creating your own advanced expressions in Insight. 


Creating Velocities (V0+K Models) HowTo VideoIn exploration, its common to work in areas with only vintage or limited data, but timedepth conversion is still required for solid interpretation! Use DUGInsights volume maths to build a V0+K model with as many layers as you need, and take advantage of Insights onthefly depth conversion in any project! 


Creating Velocities (Layered Proportional Models) HowTo VideoBuilding on techniques from our earlier Creating Velocities videos, we demonstrate how to create a complex layered synthetic velocity model with varying gradients and smooth transitions between layers. The result is a detailed, spatiallyvarying velocity model that conforms to structure  exactly what we need for DUG Insights onthefly timetodepth conversion! 


Velocity picking, stacking and amplitude extraction HowTo VideoDUGInsights Volumetrics tool quickly calculates insitu reserves from a single or dual horizon structure. View the results in an easy to read table or copy into a report. Building estimates of reserves has never been so speedy!
