CGG GeoSoftware has released VelPro™ 9.5, a velocity modelling and depth conversion commercial software technology used by interpreters and velocity modelling experts to seamlessly integrate seismic and well velocity information, horizons, faults, and well tops into robust and data-driven velocity models.
VelPro models complement the workflows of geophysical interpretation software applications, and are utilised in domain conversions. This enables oil company asset teams to create highly accurate depth representations of the subsurface. Users can also better understand and mitigate drilling risk using the VelPro Pore Pressure Prediction workflow which employs either the Eaton or Eaton-Bowers method to compute entire volumes of pore pressure from velocity volumes.
VelPro 9.5 licensing integrates with the full GeoSoftware portfolio, making it easier for clients to install and use it in combination with other GeoSoftware products. As an example, VelPro 9.5 reads and writes data from the GeoSoftware well database and compiles journal entries. Users can interactively switch displayed well data and tops between standard well datums with Well Data Editor, resulting in an improved user experience. VelPro maintains third-party formats and therefore works well within a client’s existing software environment.
Joe Jacquot, Strategic Marketing Manager, CGG GeoSoftware, says, “Continuous improvements to our software reflect our commitment to giving our clients the functionalities they need to address their current technical challenges. As the latest addition to our GeoSoftware family, VelPro’s robust and easy-to-use capabilities help interpreters and depth conversion experts build high-quality and accurate models in record time.”
