Brittany: Building complex 3D geological models

Brittany: Building complex 3D geological models

Antea Group has been modeling geological data as an initial analysis for its hydrogeological and engineering projects for a long time now. In 2014, Antea Group implemented GeoModeller 3D software to model the geology of the former Brennilis nuclear facility in Brittany for EDF group prior to groundwater and transport modeling for safety studies.

This tool enables Antea Group to fully take into account complex geological units and objects. It implicitly models 3D surfaces constrained by primary geological data (contacts between layers and orientation data together) and drill hole intercepts. The model can take into account a network of geological faults, which was very important in terms of Brennilis’ geology. It also offers a range of interpolation methods and geophysics inversion techniques.

“This return in terms of experience gives us the opportunity to provide our clients with a very high level of geological modeling expertise. We are now looking forward to showing our skills for Oil & Gas, Minerals and Geothermal projects.”
