NEW ORLEANS CGG GeoSoftware has launched new releases of Jason, Hampson-Russell, and Insight Earth. Each update features technological advancements, improved workflow integration, and is easier to use, said CGG GeoSoftware.

Jason 9.0 has a new anisotropic inversion tool for analyzing anisotropy for effective well design and optimum production. The relationship between elastic dependence and anisotropy allows quantitative interpretation teams to more accurately characterize reservoirs that have significant anisotropy, said CGG GeoSoftware.

A new integrated platform enables the sharing of well, seismic and geostatistically derived lithology information across the GeoSoftware Seismic to Simulation (STS) workflow. Well-based petrophysical evaluations of a reservoir’s lithology can be compared to and integrated with equivalent seismically or geostatistically derived lithology interpretations. This reduces the time spend on data and project management tasks. Changes made in one application are instantly shared in others.

Hampson-Russell 10.0 has a new GeoSI tool for geostatistical inversion that helps deliver lithology and other rock property volumes for a better understanding of a reservoir. The new RockSI tool helps users explore the link between rock properties and seismic data for quantitative interpretation.

Within Insight Earth 3.0, CGG GeoSoftware has introduced dip-guided auto-tracking so users can track horizons, faults, salt, canyons, and other geological features in 2D, 3D, and curtain slice tracking modes using estimates of dip to properly constrain elements that define the feature.
