New CGG GeoSoftware technology drives greater E&P efficiency

CGG GeoSoftware AVO imageCGG’s solutions aim to enable clients to better understand reservoir properties and how they evolve through the life of the field. (Image source: CGG)CGG GeoSoftware has announced new releases across its geoscience portfolio to support exploration and development to life-of-field production management

The company’s HampsonRussell, Jason, PowerLog, InsightEarth, VelPro and EarthModel FT solutions aim to provide integrated workflows from geology and geophysics to reservoir engineering, said CGG.

For example, the new ‘Load-Once-Use-it-Everywhere’ capability aims to enable Jason users to operate on HampsonRussell seismic stores and vice versa without the need to duplicate, move or reload seismic volumes.

“Jason 9.7.1 extends and enhances reservoir characterisation capabilities with the integration of a rock physics template in Jason crossplots and interpretation as well as a new functionality for Bayesian facies classification and inversion analysis in facies and fluids probabilities (FFP),” said the company.

Advanced geostatistical reservoir characterisation extracts the full value from seismic data, whether 4D, multicomponent, depth or wide-azimuth. The Jason organiser makes it easier to organise standard workflows, as well as develop and share client-specific ones.

For geophysical interpretation and analysis, HampsonRussell 10.3 aims to provide faster loading and processing of huge data volumes than previous versions. Other features include new functionality for AVO modeling with rock physics inputs, horizontal well correlation, a new process for de-spiking and new advanced spectral decomposition attributes for pre-inversion analysis and improved resolution.

PowerLog 9.7.1, GeoSoftware’s petrophysical solution for well log analysis, includes an improved well selector and better data management. Windows-linking lets users set up preferred interpretation workflows including multiple viewers and processors to vastly improve analysis of large data sets. Implementation of a Python Extensions plug-in architecture is a game-changer for developing custom interpretation modules.

InsightEarth accelerates 3D visualisation and interpretation. InsightEarth 3.4 provides streaming of large seismic volumes, so that users can work on large data sets. Other enhancements include a redesigned trim-and-seal process, new spectral decomposition algorithms and better quality and tightness of fault images from Automated Fault Extraction.

VelPro is a flexible and comprehensive post-stack velocity modelling application and VelPro 9.7.1 now offers depth-to-depth calibration, four major modelling workflows in one solution, and post-stack depth migration.

EarthModel FT for rapidly building geological models incorporates all field data and connects to flow simulation for improved drilling and production planning. EarthModel 9.7.1 offers a new grid format and a new export format for 3D properties to ease connection to fracture simulation workflows.
