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. Users of HampsonRussell 10.2 can benefit from better workflows for greater productivity with new data conditioning, inversion and map prediction features.
Key features include new data conditioning processes, residual Normal Moveout (NMO) 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. This new information helps mine and interpret data from derived attributes.
The new MapPredict application is a fully integrated, map-based geostatistical software that integrates well, seismic and attribute data into detailed maps. MapPredict encompasses the functionality of HampsonRussell’s former ISMap application and also includes the ability to handle horizontal wells. MapPredict is also suited for finding relationships between multiple seismic attribute slices and properties derived from well information such as hydrocarbon production.
