Foster Findlay Associates (ffA) has released a plug-in linking GeoTeric 2015 and Landmark’s DecisionSpace® Geosciences as part of Landmark’s iEnergy® Partner Program. This new plug-in enables GeoTeric and DecisionSpace Geosciences users to move seismic volumes, horizons and well data rapidly and extend data-sharing and seismic interpretation workflows seamlessly across the two industry-leading E&P technologies.
Geological Expression in GeoTeric is a data-driven, interpreter-guided approach to seismic interpretation, which translates geophysical data into geological information. GeoTeric’s quantitative seismic colour blends are then used for detailed interpretation using ffA’s Adaptive Geobodies® and Adaptive HorizonsTM methods.
Landmark, a Halliburton business line, developed DecisionSpace Geosciences on a consistent framework model of the subsurface to enable geologists, geophysicists, geomodelers and well engineers to collaborate more effectively and securely in real time to make faster and more accurate decisions.
By delivering the GeoTeric plug-in, geoscientists can now enhance their subsurface understanding by extracting formation information from seismic data in GeoTeric and bringing in-depth geological knowledge in areas of interest back into DecisionSpace Geosciences.
The GeoTeric plug-in is powered by Landmark’s DecisionSpace Platform, the industry’s first enterprise-scale, standards-based, open platform that federates and integrates data and business processes. The ease of developing the plug-in highlights the flexibility, openness and efficiency of development on the platform.
“Software integration is very important to ffA and we are very pleased to strengthen our long-standing relationship with Landmark by becoming an iEnergy Partner,” states Jon Henderson, ffA Managing Director. “The steep growth in the GeoTeric user base over the last couple of years can be attributed to our progressive research, commitment to customer satisfaction, and services-proven workflows. Bringing together GeoTeric and DecisionSpace Geosciences technologies is an important step in allowing our users to continue to improve their interpretation productivity and stimulate new thinking.”
