Seismic Data Attributes

New Feature Why It Matters
New Seismic Attributes
  • Relief
    • Highlights high impedance contrasts
  • RMS Amplitude
    • Reveals amplitude anomalies by measuring the magnitude of amplitude variation over a window
    • DHI indicator
  • Sweetness
    • Attribute of the amplitude family used for sweet spot identification (e.g. gas sands)
    • DHI indicator
  • Relief attribute provides an aid for structural interpretation
  • RMS Amplitude helps identify stratigraphic features such as channels and reefs.

StratEarth®

New Feature Why It Matters
  • Production data for the geologist
    • Share production data with all applications
      • Open single storage of time-based production data to all applications.
    • Share time-based production data between Epos and StratEarth/SKUA
      • Relative time display of time-based production plots

      • Minimum and maximum gridded results provide a more realistic, constrained result.
  • Loading data once to share across applications increases user efficiency, reduces duplicate data storage needs, and enables easier data management.​
  • Relative time based production plots allow easy direct comparison of multiple wells’ production history
  • ​Mapping production, including constraints for minimum and maximum range, selecting time ranges for gridding, and utilizing lease or field boundaries increase the quality of maps.
