Ikon Science, PetroTrace Global Extend JV Scope

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 8/26/2015, Location: Europe

Building on the existing Joint Venture linking the two companies, Ikon Science announces the availability of seismic data processing workflows using a new High Performance Computing (HPC) cluster in its UK office. This adds a wide array of pre-stack velocity modeling and processing capabilities required to condition seismic data for optimal performance in advanced Quantitative Interpretation workflows, including the latest geological inversion and Bayesian facies classification technologies.

By integrating the processing and QI workflows, the quality of the seismic processing is tested and improved by rock physics, and the intermediate deliverables can be optimised for QI throughout the seismic processing sequence. This allows customers to get the most from their data for projects involving advanced technologies such as Ikon Science’s new, highly successful Ji-Fi joint impedance and facies inversion.

One example is the ability to constantly monitor improvements in well tie and wavelet. This allows processing steps such as de-phasing and Q correction to be optimized to deliver zero phase, amplitude calibrated and optimum bandwidth seismic volumes for QI.

“In Ikon’s QI group, we find that many seismic datasets we receive are not optimally processed for seismic inversion. The addition of PetroTrace Global’s capabilities and expertise to Ikon Science Quantitative Interpretation workflows gives our customers a single-stop delivery for state-of-the-art project results involving datasets that may not have been processed to necessary standards for seismic inversion,” said Friso Brouwer, Ikon Science QI Manager for the EAME region. “Initial reactions from our customers are very positive. They see the value of accessing PetroTrace Global’s expertise to ensure optimal results.”

“We are very pleased with this expansion of the collaboration of PetroTrace Global with Ikon Science’s QI teams; by working closely together and pooling our expertise and our technologies, we will provide a superior result to our customers”, said Nikolai Baransky, CEO of PetroTrace Global. “Both companies have a similar culture that creates high quality, fit-for-purpose workflows that are adapted to the specific challenges of a project, and regular interaction with the customer to ensure that the outcomes meet or exceed expectations.”
