Seismic interpretation and cellular gridding are traditionally performed independently. A one-way approach also aims at using a few horizons to generate the grid. At this point, options of getting back to the input horizons edition are limited and the most of the refinement has to be laboriously performed in the cellular grid environment. This paper shows an interactive two-way workflow enabling to connect the Relative Geological Time modeling method (Pauget et al., 2009) with a stratigraphic grid creation process. The interpreter dynamically defines the geological correlations, unit boundaries and bedset terminations within the RGT model. He has the control to adapt the cell pattern of each stratigraphic unit according to the seismic quality. The synergy between seismic interpretation and geomodelling is thus optimized in order to offer new perspectives for static and dynamic simulations that can be performed at various stages either during the exploration or the development phase.
