Paradigm (www.pdgm.com) has renewed its donation of 20 licenses each for its Echos seismic processing system and SeisEarth XV interpretation and visualization product suite. The licenses will be used in two teaching courses in the Master’s Program in Petroleum Engineering, as well as for research purposes.
In the course Geophysical Digital Signal Processing, students will learn about multichannel seismic reflection data processing techniques, using Paradigm Echos to perform seismic processing on real 2D seismic reflection data. The course Applied Geophysics for Hydrocarbon Exploration focuses on the interpretation of seismic reflection data from real 2D/3D datasets in different geological environments. It includes a project in which students interpret a real dataset composed of 3D and 2D seismic reflection data and well logs using Paradigm SeisEarth XV.
The software will also be used in research projects performed by the CERENA Petroleum Group, which will study new techniques for seismic reflection and the integration of well log data into the geo-modeling workflow. The main focus will be on the development of new geostatistical tools for reservoir modeling and characterization. The research plan includes uncertainty assessment and integration during seismic reflection data processing, including the key steps of velocity modeling and imaging.
Paradigm solutions will be used as the standard workspace between researchers, to enhance interpersonal collaboration and improve modeling workflows.
