Paradigm 17: What's New?

Posted by Samhita Shah on Jan 5, 2017 1:31:18 PM RSS Share Post

Paradigm Subject Matter Expert, Dr. Bruno de Ribet will be previewing Paradigm 17 during a lunch and learn session and via Webinar on January 17 and 18. Paradigm 17 is Paradigm's latest comprehensive solution suite scheduled to be released in Q1 of 2017. This release is designed to improve asset team productivity and effectiveness, and enable superior decision-making by representing all available data in integrated workflows.

The presentation will provide an overview of the major improvements and new functionalities in Paradigm 17. These include advances in 2D imaging, new tomography workflows, a new methodology for rock type classification, a new volume fusion tool in VoxelGeo, Multimin Monte Carlo uncertainty analysis and a new 3D petrophysics functionality in Geolog, and much more. The presentation will also highlight the new Paradigm Integrated Canvas, which simplifies and streamlines key workflows; the Epos integrated enterprise G&G database; and extended third-party connectivity, making it easier than ever to access your data, wherever it is located.

Integrated Wellbore Stability - A Paradigm Geoscience Data Services

Posted by Samhita Shah on Dec 8, 2016 12:01:19 PM RSS Share Post

The proper assessment of wellbore stability draws on shared expertise across multiple geoscience and geological engineering disciplines. It requires an integrated approach in which team members collaborate towards completing a well, in what may be abnormal drilling conditions. The Paradigm Integrated Wellbore Stability workflow consists of a series of operations for the prediction of geopressures, stress regimes, and safe mud weights. One of the most important challenges is to perform these operations seamlessly, leading to results with the lowest possible uncertainty and attendant risk. Another challenge is to properly assess wellbore stability with only limited information.

Virtual Lecture Series 2016 - Season 2: Maximize the Efficiency of your 2D Reprocessing

Posted by Samhita Shah on Aug 23, 2016 11:21:19 AM RSS Share Post

Today's lecture by Kashif Shaukat, Paradigm Technical Sales Advisor, covered the topic of how to maximize the efficiency of your 2D reprocessing and get the best results, fast. 2D processing and imaging are the most cost-effective way to study the subsurface in terms of structural geology and reservoir properties. However, since a single 2D line only provides limited information, multiple 2D lines are acquired across the area.

Paradigm continues to strengthen its 2D processing and imaging solutions by rejuvenating 2D tomography and introducing a new multi-line batch process. Now geoscientists can efficiently update velocity models by using Paradigm's modern and easy-to-use tomography engine on multiple 2D lines in a single run. In addition, by increasing efficiency through multi-line batch processing, Paradigm provides geoscientists with full 3D visualization advantages from 2D data, thus enhancing the power of QC workflows. This presentation featured Paradigm GeoDepth.

Velocity Is at the Heart of Paradigm Software - Part 2

Posted by Peter Wang on Aug 15, 2016 9:00:00 AM RSS Share Post

In the first half of the Velocity Blog series, we discussed the Paradigm velocity function “tree”, how it developed from GeoDepth. We described the major branches; the “Analysis and Imaging” branch for specialists, contrasted with the “Velocity Collection, Manipulation, Assembly, and Use” branch for E&P generalists. Finally, we had time to discuss one of the “leaves” on the generalist branch - Vertical Functions.
