Attendees at this week’s SEG International Exposition and 84th Annual Meeting in Denver, CO got a first-hand look at the latest high definition-enabled G&G software solutions available in Paradigm 14 and 14.1. Over 875 packed into the Paradigm booth over the three-day exposition for technical presentations and daily Lunch & Learn sessions. Paradigm technical experts demonstrated advanced global interpretation and modeling as a solution to the seismic interpretation correlation challenge, as well as applications for efficient characterization of shale resource plays.  

For these exploration geoscientists, the latest technical innovations can ensure they get the most from their high-definition data investment. With our new HD capabilities, operators can gain greater insight into their assets and reduce uncertainty in production forecasts with models that more closely tie to seismic and geological reality. Software demonstrations at SEG 2014 spanned new capabilities for broadband processing, quantitative interpretation, seismic facies classification, and advances toward HD earth modeling.

A Focus on Our Customers

At Paradigm, product development – especially with the over 700 new features and enhancements in Paradigm 14 – depends on close collaboration and input from our customers. Priority is placed on enhancing both the user experience and results. Our meeting rooms were continually booked as we met onsite with customers attending SEG and provided private demonstrations on these new capabilities.

We also announced news this week with two customers – Mexico seismic services company COMESA and Chevron Energy Technology Company, who both expanded their use of the Paradigm product suite. 

  • COMESA selected Paradigm as a Strategic Partner for its new Seismic Data Processing Center in Villahermosa, Tabasco. Through the use of Paradigm software solutions for seismic processing and imaging, subsurface modeling and reservoir characterization, COMESA can address the diverse geophysical and geologic (G&G) subsurface challenges in its clients’ exploration programs. For Paradigm, the partnership also marks continued growth in Mexico and across Latin America, as well as strong collaboration with COMESA. Read More.

  • Chevron Energy Technology Company, a division of Chevron U.S.A. Inc., signed a new long-term contract with Paradigm that provides access to an expanded Paradigm product portfolio. In addition to the company’s interpretation and modeling solutions, which Chevron has deployed globally over the past seven years, the expanded agreement adds Paradigm solutions for formation evaluation and access to licenses for seismic processing and imaging, and drilling engineering.

 There was no shortage of opportunities for conference attendees to connect with Paradigm experts at SEG 2014. Other program highlights included:

  • Technical paper presentation on ‘Time Preserving Tomography’ by Paradigm’s Yoav Naveh, Lior Liram, Zvi Koren and Gali Dekel

  • Media Event for industry journalists and other guests to get a close-up look at new features and enhancements in Paradigm 14 and 14.1 with CEO Arshad Matin and EVP of Geoscience Duane Dopkin.

  • A post-convention workshop on ‘Global Interpretation – Solving the Interpreation and Correlation Challenge,’ led by Paradigm’s Bruno de Ribet

  • A networking reception – Eat, Drink, Connect – on the rooftop of Tamayo Denver, sponsored by Paradigm and hosted by partner NetApp.

  • Presence at partner booths including HP, NetApp and Lenovo.
