For more than 20 years, SKUA-GOCAD™ has the led the industry in providing the most advanced capabilities for geological and reservoir modeling. This comprehensive offering enables users from multiple disciplines and industries to build realistic subsurface models that honor geological complexities while avoiding unwarranted simplification.
SKUA-GOCAD is a highly customizable, integrated product suite, available either as a standalone configuration or running on the multi-user Epos™ database for effective team collaboration.

ACCURATE STRUCTURAL MODELS
SKUA-GOCAD is a huge leap forward in geologic characterization. Geoscientists can use it to incorporate difficult model structures, multi-z surfaces, and complex faults such as salt dome, overthrust and reverse faults. With a simple-to-use, workflow-based interface, users can obtain results quickly, and when the modeling gets tough, SKUA-GOCAD can handle complexities that other solutions cannot.
A NEW APPROACH TO AN OLD PROBLEM
Based on the proprietary UVT Transform™ algorithm, SKUA-GOCAD reduces modeling times from months to days. The integration of all interpretation results with the Paradigm Global Interpretation solution exponentially increases stratigraphic and reservoir model accuracy, while SKUA flow simulation grids provide optimal reservoir grids for the computation of flow.
A COMMON EARTH MODEL TO MEET YOUR TEAM’S COMMON GOALS
From seismic to flow simulation, the Paradigm SKUA Common Earth Model provides consistent, discipline-specific views of the subsurface. Well, seismic, micro-seismic, production, geology, and trend data are all integrated with the earth model.
The collaborative environment ensures that everyone involved has access to the full interpretation of the earth, with no unwarranted simplification. Your team can investigate multiple, traceable scenarios and create a historical data trail that will allow them to trace models back through different iterations. They can then view and manipulate data anywhere along the path while creating highly accurate models of the subsurface.
SKUA-GOCAD bridges the gap between interpretation and simulation through
-Seismic interpretation and reservoir simulation workflows
-Interpretative structural and geological modeling
-Population of models with rock properties and reservoir characteristics
-Reservoir gridding/upscaling for dynamic simulation
-Integration and interpretation of data from all available sources, including familiar databases and formats from OpenWorks®, ASCII, LAS, and SEG-Y
-Risk analysis that captures and integrates the source of uncertainties at every level of the value chain (geometry, static and dynamic properties)
-SKUA provides a common workspace for easy collaboration and data sharing
-SKUA models more accurately resemble your reservoir because no data is left out and no interpretation is simplified
-The integration of all interpretation results with the SKUA Global Interpretation solution exponentially increases stratigraphic and reservoir model accuracy
-With built-in data sharing, multiple scenario processing and audit trail, SKUA improves E&P workflows, reduces study time, and creates the industry’s most accurate models for planning and forecasting.
