ffA has reported the release of SVI Pro and SEA 3D Pro 2011.1 software including the new interactive Link for Petrel, SaltApp and the Extended Link for Geoprobe.
“The new release gives improved connectivity and additional capabilities to geoscientists who want to maximise their interpretation productivity by fully accessing the information contained within 3D seismic data” states Agnes Campan, ffA’s Director of Global Sales and Marketing.
The release includes ffA’s new interactive Link for Petrel, which transfers information seamlessly between SVI Pro and Petrel. This will give the best possible interpretation productivity by integrating ffA 3D seismic analysis directly into the Petrel workflow.
“What is really exciting about the Link for Petrel is that it is now simple to transfer high resolution RGB blends from SVI Pro and view them with the same resolution in Petrel. The Link for Petrel also makes it possible to interpret on RGB blends in the same way as you interpret on a standard seismic volume. The Link for Petrel will create SVI Pro projects directly from Petrel as well as import volume and horizon data from Petrel to drive advanced 3D seismic analysis workflows. ” states Agnes.
The second advance is ffA’s new SaltApp workflow. This workflow guides users through the process of delineating salt and analysing the relationship between salt bodies and the surrounding stratigraphy. Agnes communicated, “Through working closely with geologists and geophysicists in the interpretation domain we know the challenges associated with interpreting seismic images in the vicinity of salt. The new SaltApp workflow will allow the user to more easily and more accurately delineate salt diapirs and salt canopies, interpret base salt reflectors and identify variations in the stratigraphy surrounding the salt.” She continued to explain that with this ffA innovation there is now a means of accessing improved prospect identification below and around complex salt structures as well as gaining and enhancing understanding of trapping mechanisms.
The release on the 3rd October also includes significant enhancements to the Link for GeoProbe and it provides enhancements in performance through upgraded GPU processing and more efficient.
