Posted by Samhita Shah on May 22, 2015 10:19:00 AM RSS Share Post

Paradigm welcomes EAGE delegates to booth #240 at the European Association of Geoscientists and Engineers (EAGE) Conference & Exhibition, to be held June 1-5 at IFEMA Madrid.  We have assembled a multi-disciplinary program for all geoscientists aimed at helping them meet today’s drilling challenges and mitigate risk, both environmentally and economically.

Filtering rays through using geological formation volume from SKUA

We will reveal how Paradigm innovation and vision are fueling energy programs.  Multi-disciplinary geoscientists will present integrated workflows around these themes:

  • Solving velocity challenges

  • Tackling complex reservoirs

  • Increasing accuracy and productivity through integrated high-definition interpretation

As part of our theatre program, Paradigm 15 value-added workflows will demonstrate:

  • Enriched velocity model updating

  • Quantitative Seismic Interpretation for interpreters and geophysicists

  • Efficient pore pressure prediction throughout the drilling cycle

Several of our much appreciated customers will be sharing their experiences using Paradigm solutions, including:

  • GALP Energia -  Portugal

  • PetroTrace Global – “Turning Data into Knowledge”

  • VNG Norge - Norway

Demos will include:

Solving Velocity Challenges

  • Enriched Velocity Model Updating: New flexible 3D model-based approach for reduced velocity model non-uniqueness

  • Precision depthing for the interpreter: Velocity modeling & depth to depth calibration

  • Increase confidence: Illumination as an interpreter’s tool to validate seismic in a complex environment

Tackling Complex Reservoirs

  • Accurate fracture reservoir models combining fracture probability volumes and fracture determination at the wellbore

  • Handling a highly complex geologic environment: Challenge your reservoir modeling technology

  • Seismic facies classification scenarios: From amplitude to rock type

  • Determine stress and fractures from seismic imaging for HD delineation of sweet spots

  • Accurately pick and correlate well markers, utilizing real-time data from high angle and horizontal wells

HD Interpretation in One Scalable Platform

  • Advanced stratigraphic investigation: Empowering interpretation with QSI

  • More than good enough: User-friendly, efficient, accurate structural delineation of a large multi-survey dataset

Customer Case Study (Russian Hour)

  • Turning data into knowledge, Konstantin Smirnov, Petrotrace Global

  • Customer Case Study Geologically consistent PSDM using Paradigm GeoDepth technology - Case study of the Pil and Bue discoveries in the Norwegian Sea, Alexander Sakharov, VNG Norge AS
