Structural analysis underpins all of Eslan Labs capabilities: structural analysis of gravity and magnetic fields, tectonic and structural modeling, and basin analysis. We produce robust structural interpretations at regional to sub-basin scales.
We produce structural analysis interpretations from fusion of gravity and magnetic databases with Landsat, digital topography and bathymetry, and other data such as spectrometry. Our structural analysis interpretations are the result of years of development combined with an in-house structural and tectonic R&D expertise keeping up-to-date with current science.
At regional scales, structural analysis of faults, folds, lineaments, and ductile shears is used to define plate boundaries, with the additional integration of crustal types using 2D gravity and magnetic profiles.
Structural analysis enable phases of activity to be linked to activation histories providing information on mapping, age confidence, and a full explanation of the basis of each feature.
Eslan Labs’s expertise can be used in the identification of structural hydrocarbon traps. Structural analysis and integration of proprietary seismic data including horizon and fault interpretations with gravity and magnetic interpretation enables details obtained from seismic data to be inferred over wider areas.
Distribution of folds, faults lineaments
- Kinematics & Relative timing
- Development of tectonic models for predictive targeting:
- Direct structural analogy; and Indirect structural targeting (new models?)
- Extension of models to other terranes.
Fusion of structural features
- geophysics, geology, digital terrane, LANDSITE
- 3-D – fault dips (field data, magnetic profiles);
- Fault displacement vectors, relative displacements; kinematic indicators;
- associated structures (veins, faults & fractures);
- fault – fault relative timing relationships;
- Brittle Failure – shallow, thin, straight
- Brittle-Ductile Fault Zone with discrete breaks (brittle-ductile zone)
- Ductile Shear Zones – deep basement, high T&P
