In essence there are two ways to build a GDE-based play map: using predominantly seismic data or non-seismic information (such as wireline, core, mudlog, BHI etc). Both workflows, however, require a number of key criteria to be met in order to build a play map that resembles the associated geology. The most critical of these criteria concerns the well correlation, which should (ideally) reflect the chronology of the interval of interest. The following article discusses the well correlation and all the other critical criteria that need to be considered when making a GDE-based play map.
