VIDL Project Databases

VIDL Network experience gives you the opportunity to work through a project with actual data. The available databases are from two types of sources: public domain available at no cost, and licensed data. Our colleagues also are given the capability to import their own proprietary data for a VIDL Project.

Gravity Database

  • Bouguer Gravity
  • Residual Bouguer Gravity
  • Free-air Gravity (satellite-derived)

Magnetic Database

  • Total Magnetic Intensity Anomaly Field
  • Reduction-to-Magnetic Pole Field
  • Residual Magnetic Field

Density

  • Rock Properties Chart
  • Density/depth curve for an offshore area
  • Density/depth curve for an onshore area

Continental US Well Database
The formation-to-age correlations are not straight-forward as formation names for a given geologic age do change from locale to locale, even within the same state. Over 4,000,000 wells have been scrutinized to develop the US Continental well database which has been datum-corrected to subsea (bsl) depths and transcribe to Latitude & Longitude positions. All formations with corresponding depths were preserved. A colleague can access the database to query and retrieve over 1,000,000 tied well tops. Additional subsets of geological mapped surfaces and corresponding isopachs are available.

Northern Gulf of Mexico Paleo Well Database
A colleague can access the database to query over 150,000 Northern Gulf of Mexico paleontological records of formations from the Upper Pleistocene through the Lower Jurassic. There are also several named geological formations in the database. One has the option to retrieve any subset area of these data to aggregate common geological age records with a depth (z) and then create surfaces with viable geodetics. Several surface maps are also made available.

US Gulf Coast States Magnetic Basement Structure Maps
Any 2D or 3D structural model project should if possible include the basement framework. As a colleague you will the option to retrieve any subset area along the US Gulf Coast States for use in a project. The area available encompasses the Gulf Coast areas for the states of Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Florida.

US East Coast Magnetic Basement Structure Maps

Any 2D or 3D structural model project should if possible include the basement framework. As a colleague you will have the option to retrieve any subset area along the US East Coast for use in a project. The area available encompasses the offshore shelf from the states of Maine to Florida.

US Louisiana Salt Tectonics
A Project may entail modeling the salt configuration for a specific area on the Louisiana State shelf margin. The Salt Tectonics database is a regional 3D model of the salt configuration. As a colleague you will be able to retrieve a subset area of the regional salt tectonics model results and refine the salt/sediment interface with your additional proprietary data via a 3D structural model project.
