This paper describes a three dimensional (3-D) graphical system that is used as a pre- and post-processor in connection with reservoir simulation. The system is able to make 3-D presentations of reservoir simulation input and output data together with information from mapping packages. In addition, the simulation grid geometry may be modified interactively.

The main aim of the system is to improve quality assurance (QA) on simulation input and output data, and to help engineers get a better understanding of the 3-D geometry, property relationships, and fluid flows.
