CGG GeoSoftware has launched version 11.0 of its extensive portfolio of reservoir characterisation and petrophysical interpretation software solutions
GeoSoftware 11.0 integrates all of GeoSoftware’s industry-trusted solutions, including Jason, HampsonRussell, PowerLog, RockSI, InsightEarth and VelPro, so that they can work together on a single platform. This advanced integration features flexible cross-product workflows to improve E&P project performance and provide a better understanding of reservoir properties.
GeoSoftware 11.0 runs on both Amazon Web Services Inc (AWS) and Microsoft Azure cloud platforms. Cloud elasticity, the ability to scale access to cloud compute resources, allows geoscientists to unleash the full power of cloud computing to explore more scenarios with increased model complexity and generate tens to hundreds of geostatistical inversion realisations concurrently.
Enhanced machine learning capabilities in version 11.0 include WellGen, a new HampsonRussell application, that facilitates deep learning workflows linking geological and geophysical interpretations for more accurate reservoir property estimates in complex reservoirs. Improved automation and analytics in PowerLog significantly reduce log editing time so that petrophysicists can focus on interpretation.
Advances in computing performance include Jason AVO Inversion which provides multi-threaded QCs and sensitivity testing for greater confidence in reservoir characterisation. HampsonRussell GPU processing speeds up run time, reduces cycle time and enables geoscientists to work with larger, more detailed models.
Other GeoSoftware 11.0 innovations significantly improve the user experience, boosting efficiency and usability. HampsonRussell automated multi-well correlation affords fast well-ties and QC analysis for hundreds of wells, saving time in projects with large well data sets. HampsonRussell is expected to improve depth-time domain conversion, velocity modeling and depth synthetic modeling, enabling the integration of seismic assets with geological and petrophysical depth domains.
Kamal al-Yahya, senior vice-president, GeoSoftware and Smart Data Solutions, said, “GeoSoftware 11.0 is the culmination of five years of intense software development to deliver an integrated GeoSoftware platform linking geophysics, geology and petrophysics for optimum workflows that drive greater reservoir understanding. With our continued investment in technology we are delivering more benefits from our digitalisation roadmap that help elevate subsurface knowledge and increase the E&P success of our clients.”
