Shell has been developing and using basin modeling software since the 1980’s. Initially very much as an exploration tool. Over the years simple 1D burial history analysis has evolved to 4D basin evolution simulations. Not only to help exploration in predicting hydrocarbon occurrences but also to help evaluate subsurface pressure and seismic velocities, pressure and temperature for well planning, predict reservoirs properties for development geologists and underpin assessments of risking for contaminants like H2S.
