New strategies for seismic data processing are helping energy companies extract previously unattainable levels of insight into the subsurface. This information is much needed, as declining production in mature oil and gas fields is forcing companies to explore areas of increasing geologic complexity in pursuit of new reservoirs. Paradigm EarthStudy 360® running on the Intel® Xeon® processor E5 ...2600 v4 family offers a valuable new resource in this challenging environment. EarthStudy 360 takes advantage of all available seismic data to deliver improved insight. The recorded data is decomposed into full-azimuth, angle-dependent reflectivities and directional (dip and azimuth) components, which are then combined to produce highly detailed and accurate seismic images and subsurface velocity models.
With ongoing innovation in both hardware and software, Paradigm and Intel are helping energy companies achieve ever-deeper insight into the subsurface, so they can continue to find new reservoirs, optimize development, reduce risk, and achieve better outcomes.
