Full Integration with GeoGraphix

Share data between all our geophysical, geological and mapping tools using the tight integration within the GeoGraphix suite for a more efficient asset team. Make faster and more informed decisions - qualities essential to today's fast-paced E&P environment.

Effortless Data Management

Perform rapid interpretation in large 2D, 3D or combination projects with our 64-bit architecture. Manage all your seismic surveys easily with multiple data versions for each survey. Quickly convert SEG-Y data to our proprietary brick format for optimized data access using versatile SEG-Y readers built to handle most commonly encountered scenarios. Easily balance 2D, 3D and 2D-3D datasets including automatic calculation of phase, gain & time relationships.

Integrated Synthetic Modeling

Create or edit synthetic seismograms using simplified workflows in a dedicated synthetic view. Display seismic, horizons and formation tops and tie synthetic traces using shift, stretch and squeeze in the dedicated view or directly in 3D. Calculate optimum time and phase shifts to maximize correlation between synthetic and seismic. Save synthetics and time-depth tables directly in WellBase. Synthetic modeling in GVERSE Geophysics has no separate license requirement.

Blazing Fast 3D Visualization

Built on an engine designed for seismic and related data, it's never been easier to view your seismic, horizons, faults, wells and wellbore data and much more in the 3D space. Work with very large seismic files without compromising performance using our groundbreaking LOD format. Use advanced visualization techniques like voxel rendering, co-blending, selective transparencies and more to visualize subsurface structures like never before and gain deeper insights into your data to make better decisions for your play.

Extensive Horizon Interpretation

Access multiple manual and automatic picking modes to quickly mark seed picks and track horizon surfaces across multiple 2D and 3D surveys. Utilize extensive validation options and QC features like confidence, pick order, pick type and pick relationship displays for faster QC and more accurate picking. Interpret in thrust-faulted areas with multi-z horizon picking (2D seismic only). Access a full set of horizon operations including copying, snapping, smoothing, merging and dip and azimuth calculations.

Accurate Fault Interpretation

Mark and edit fault segments on vertical or horizontal seismic displays or directly in the 3D view. Interpolate the fault surface automatically with fault triangulation algorithms that deliver accurate and reliable results. Assign, unassign or reassign fault segments individually or in bulk directly from seismic sections or 3D view. Use the correlation window to assist fault picking in difficult areas or noisy data. Calculate fault heaves automatically with fault polygons.

Comprehensive Geobody Interpretation

Pick structures on seismic and attributes volumes and save them as geobodies. Interpolate seed picks or track signatures automatically to extract geobodies from seismic data. Drape data directly on your geobodies, show intersections with seismic sections, calculate volumetrics and a lot more to better understand your reservoirs and subsurface structures.

Robust, Reliable Depth Conversion

Experience fast and reliable depth conversion algorithms with an extensive set of options. Use four types of velocity models including the ability to set an external seismic volume as a model. Create surfaces with the unique three component horizons using a comprehensive set of horizon conversion options. Keep your seismic backdrops in GVERSE Geomodeling up-to-date by incorporating changes to formation picks in real-time with dynamic depth conversion. Switch to Depth Mode in time interpretations and convert time scene to depth, on-the-fly. QC your velocity data with a variety of velocity QC tools and visualize data from velocity models on seismic sections. Full integration between our geophysics and geology tools lets you utilize all available data when making key decisions for exploration or field development.

Extensive Indigenous Mapping Capability

Fulfill most of your mapping needs with the built-in mapping framework. Create multiple base maps with a unique set of display parameters and color palettes. Grid and contour your maps and surfaces and display contour or color density maps for time, velocity, depth or seismic attribute surfaces. Access the full set of gridding operations when mapping data with geophysical and geological integration. Measure planimeter and linear distance on map and 3D views.

Simple Attribute and Surface Calculations

Compute surface attributes with the Attribute and Surface Calculator which comprises multiple attribute options in an easy to use interface. Calculate attributes within a time window, between horizons or about a selected horizon using the flexible windowing options or do horizon-to-horizon or surface-to-surface calculations for 2D or 3D horizon surfaces. Extract seismic data at well locations and save as a log curve in the active curve set.

Ease of Use & True Mobility

Leverage the latest in technology to minimize your learning curve and focus on what's important. Enhance productivity with many usability features like multi-screen support, dockable windows, a sleek ribbon-based interface, saving and sharing work as sessions and much more. Work in remote, desktop, mobile or remote environments and accommodate large regional projects while reducing need for IT support.
