CGG GeoSoftware upgrades reservoir characterization software

Offshore staff

PARIS CGG GeoSoftware has released a new version of its HampsonRussell reservoir characterization software, with new features for attribute extraction and prediction along horizontal wells, as well as upgraded geostatistical mapping capabilities.

CGG GeoSoftware said that HampsonRussell 10.2 users will benefit from better workflows for greater productivity with new data conditioning, inversion, and map prediction features.  

Key features are said to include new data conditioning processes, residual normal moveout correction, and FXY deconvolution for noise attenuation and spectral balancing. Inversion can now output relative impedances for both pre- and post-stack data and extract attributes along horizontal well paths. According to the company, this new information can help mine and interpret data from derived attributes resulting in more accurate reservoir models.

The new MapPredict application is a fully integrated map-based geostatistical software that integrates well, seismic, and attribute data into accurate, detailed maps. MapPredict encompasses the functionality of HampsonRussell’s former ISMap application and has evolved even further to include the ability to handle horizontal wells. The new application is especially suited to finding relationships between multiple seismic attribute slices and properties derived from well information such as hydrocarbon production.
