If you are involved in exploration, the chances are you have terabytes of 3D seismic data. Processing this much data is more than traditional workstations can handle, forcing you to either compress or reduce fidelity and in doing so, compromise the quality of your data. It certainly begs the question “What might we be missing and what are the implications of missing it?”
Seismic Engine, a DecisionSpace® 365 cloud application, is the industry's first cloud-native software that enables you to link and run advanced geophysical algorithms and post-stack attributes on terabytes of 3D seismic data.
Perhaps you need to explore new assets quickly and effectively or improve reservoir characterization using post-stack 3D seismic data. You may be a smaller operator who normally subcontracts your geophysical interpretation work or a new asset owner receiving seismic data from previous owners. Regardless, the power of Seismic Engine is not just the speed of the calculations, but also the details it reveals in seismic data. Our Fault Likelihood algorithm can image fault throws as small as 10 feet, subtle but important faults which are difficult, if not impossible, for an interpreter to identify.
Seismic Engine provides infinite scope and potential through automated attribute extraction to help you maximize the value of your large-scale seismic datasets without compromising data fidelity, and reduces your interpretation turnaround time.
You can choose from over 100 different tools and processes that can be applied to terabytes of seismic data, including 80+ post-stack attributes such as curvature, structure-orientated semblance, structure-orientated smoothing, multi-dimensional clustering, fault likelihood and many more. Results can be quickly and easily visualized with a set of visualization tools to display 2D surveys, histograms, inline and crossline section views, as well as time and depth slices. In short, by leveraging automated processes, you’ll have more time to focus on interpretation, critical decision-making, and other value-adding activities.
The Sky's the Limit
In an industry where reducing project turnaround time matters more than ever, Seismic Engine leverages elastic cloud computing technology to streamline your data computations and run complex workflows regardless of scale.
Depending on the volume of your seismic data, cloud computing capabilities scale out and in according to your needs, running advanced geophysical algorithms in parallel while maintaining data accessibility, fidelity, and accuracy.
Smarter Tools Driving Faster, Better Results
You’ll have access to a rich set of tools and processes – despiking, filtering, interpolation, and structure-oriented smoothing – to ensure adequate preparation of your data.
You can interpret faults using a leading-edge fault likelihood algorithm to accurately detect both large and very subtle fault signatures. The fault-likelihood attribute provides information not only about the location of faults but also about their orientation. This capability mitigates the laborious and somewhat subjective and error-prone manual fault interpretation process, and shortens project lifecycle.
A More Personalized Approach to E&P
We recognize that every customer’s needs are different, and that you need the freedom to develop personalized workflows to address your unique data challenges. Seismic Engine was developed on an open architecture that enables you to integrate existing assets and to design the right solution for the challenges you face. You can easily duplicate and edit personalized workflows and generate multiple realizations in seconds to make the most informed decisions in the shortest possible timeframe.
This innovative, flow-based approach helps you design complex attribute computation workflows tailored to the problem at hand.
If you want to take the customization further, we can co-innovate alongside you as part of our SmartDigital® co-innovation service to create truly unique solutions just for you.
Solving Your Seismic Data Challenges
Seismic Engine provides an extensive digital framework for linking and running advanced geophysical algorithms and post-stack attributes at scale on 3D seismic data, without reducing fidelity to help expedite decision-making and shorten the project lifecycle.
Used in tandem with other DecisionSpace®365 applications, Seismic Engine can provide better results, up to 10 times faster than conventional desktop applications, while greatly reducing your dependency on costly on-premise, high-performance computing (HPC).
This leaves you with more time to focus on added value tasks that directly impact your decision-making process.
Whether you are part of an exploration, appraisal, or development team, Seismic Engine can help you shorten interpretation turn-around time, minimize risk on subsurface models, and ultimately reduce your cost of operations.
With Seismic Engine the impossible has just become possible.
Reducing the time you spend interpreting data directly impacts the project lifecycle and positively impacts your bottom line.
Computing post-stack attributes on large volumes is now possible thanks to Seismic Engine, the foundation of Landmark’s assisted seismic interpretation capabilities. For the first time you can run attributes for large seismic volumes at any scale and accelerate the attribute process, without the need to reduce fidelity or sub-set data.
