The blend is a composite of Grid Orientated Semblance, which is a form of cross correlation, Structurally Orientated Discontinuity which makes statistical variability measurements within a specific footprint and Tensor which looks at a local structural tensor. Each attribute detects different characteristics of a fault expression, displayed as cyan, magenta or yellow. Where there are multiple responses, primary colours are observed and black denotes a uniform response.
A simple transfer process from GeoTeric to Petrel, using the Link for Petrel transfers the high resolution CMY blend at the same resolution displayed in GeoTeric. The blend at this stage can be used for visualising as a 3D cube or in slices and mapping onto horizons. To continue a fault workflow and interpret on the blend, the blend must be converted into a seismic cube, resulting in a slight decrease in resolution but it enables the use of Petrels interpretation tools.
The seismic cube can be used as a guide for interpretation. Structural and deformational features are easier to visualise using a CMY blend. Fault interpretation on a CMY blend aligns with discontinuities in the reflectivity and represents a truer geometry of a fault.
The outcome is a more accurate interpretation with less subjectivity that ultimately will be used to derive a geological model of the target area.
