Emerson will showcase advanced technological solutions comprising its Exploration & Production (E&P) software suite and services at the Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG) 88th Annual Meeting and International Exposition in Anaheim, CA, October 14-19. Presentations delivered daily at Emerson’s booth #2141 will focus on the industry’s digital transformation, with targeted presentations on machine learning, together with geophysics, workflow automation, and cloud delivery.

A shared workspace in Paradigm 18 enhances the experience of cross-discipline users and saves time by organizing workflows, displays and results using context specific pages

Innovative implementations of machine learning methods with geophysics include the application of deep learning to full-azimuth seismic gathers for automatic subsurface feature classification, marking a step-change in prestack interpretation. A machine learning methodology that uses an ensemble of neural networks for predicting probabilistic rock models from seismic and well data will be presented, for a better understanding of reservoir heterogeneity. Workflow automation demonstrations featuring chronostratigraphic interpretation, geologically-constrained velocity models, and incorporating uncertainties into the static and dynamic reservoir modeling workflow will also be presented.

The theater presentations will be supported by Paradigm™ 18, Emerson’s recent synchronized release of exploration and production software. Some of the features of this release will be highlighted in shale analysis case studies. Demonstrations will be presented on the cloud, including a special presentation about high-performance computing. Customer presentations include high-resolution “holographic seismic” processing and imaging, and the application of advanced seismic interpretation methods.

The popular Lunch & Learn sessions include

  • Seismic Geomorphology: Mitigating Lithology Prediction Risk and Providing Context for Further Investigation - Applications And Workflows, presented by Henry Posamentier, Monday, October 15.
  • Unconventional Field Development in the Cloud, presented by Hassane Kassouf, Tuesday, October 16.
  • Holographic Processing and Imaging Yields Highest Possible Seismic Resolution, presented by Norm Neidell, Wednesday, October 17.

Key highlights include:

SEG Business of Applied Geophysics (BAG) Plenary Session

A Multi-Vendor Live Demonstration 

"Reservoir Model Transfer with Enrichment Using RESQML Standard," Monday, October 15, 2:00 PM, Tuesday, October, 16, 11:00 AM and SEG High Performance Computing Theater, Booth 341

Many companies, led by Energistics and including operators and software providers, have invested significant time and money over the past decade to develop and deliver an industry standard for reservoir model data exchange. In 2015 a significant milestone was achieved with the delivery of version 2 of the RESQML standard. From an end-user’s perspective, this was the first version of the standard to deliver capability above and beyond RESCUE, the precursor. Therefore, many active RESQML SIG members are anxious to start benefitting from the efforts. A multi-company implementation pilot of the latest version in commercial use (v2.0.1) is in progress with the intentions to demonstrate the benefits of RESQML and to promote widespread adoption. Energistics and members associated with this pilot will make a multi-vendor live demonstration of RESQML data transfers at the HPC Showcase at 2018 SEG Annual Meeting.

Gaby Yelin, Application Geoscientist, will deliver live 10-minute workflow briefs at Demo Station B, in the Emerson booth.
