Getting Started


pyGeoPressure is on PyPI:

pip install pygeopressure


Pore Pressure Prediction using well log data

import pygeopressure as ppp

survey = ppp.Survey("CUG")

well = survey.wells['CUG1']

a, b = ppp.optimize_nct(well.get_log("Velocity"),
n = ppp.optimize_eaton(well, "Velocity", "Overburden_Pressure", a, b)

pres_eaton_log = well.eaton(np.array(well.get_log("Velocity").data), n)

fig, ax = plt.subplots()

pres_eaton_log.plot(ax, color='blue')
well.get_log("Overburden_Pressure").plot(ax, 'g')
ax.plot(well.hydrostatic, well.depth, 'g', linestyle='--')
