Structural dips from dipmeter logs are at a smaller scale than those from seismic and sometimes reflect local features.

For example fault related drag..

­A method has been devised to incorporate these dips into reservoir models. This is particularly useful where seismic data is absent or poor.

Dipmeter and formation image logs can also characterise sedimentary features and fracture patterns.

Where relevant, these can be incorporated into static models, for example as permeability modfiers in a particular direction
