Abstract—3D modeling method is divided into geospatial modeling and 3D geological modeling. 3D geological modeling technique has become a favorable tool for people to observe and analyze the geological body enriched in mineral resources. Unlike geospatial modeling, 3D geological modeling must consider various geological conditions affecting spatial shape and petrophysical distribution of geological body for its complexity. This article analyzes the uncertainty, complexity and diversity of geological body, and lists complex geological conditions controlling spatial shape and petrophysical distributions of geological body. And then 3D geological modeling method under the control of complex geological conditions is proposed, and corresponding modeling workflow is set up. Finally, taking 3D geological modeling of petroleum exploration and development for example, 3D geological model of Shu II district in the Liaohe oil-field is built. Based on this model, some applications are realized, such as 3D visualization of structural model and petrophysical model, reserves calculation and drilling design, etc.

Index Terms—Geological body, complex geological conditions, 3D geological modeling, modeling workflow.
