GeoTeric software for 3D seismic interpretation

powered by Open Inventor

By Julia Frick, Product Manager at GeoTeric

GeoTeric is the world leading Cognitive Interpretation software package. GeoTeric’s unique design and patented technologies improve workflow productivity by revealing the geology before you interpret it. This improves interpretation confidence and decision making, gives a much better understanding of reservoir heterogeneity and allows a more accurate geological model to be defined, saving time, reducing cost and helping to de-risk investment decisions.

Cognitive Interpretation empowers the interpreter by enabling them to use their geological and geophysical expertise to maximum effect. GeoTeric® is the only seismic interpretation software package that was designed to fully support Cognitive Interpretation. Its use of example driven frameworks and adaptive interpretation techniques ensures the software works symbiotically with our cognitive processes.

We selected Open Inventor as the core 3D visualization component for our product line because we needed a dual platform solution that provided excellent performance. 3D seismic interpretation involves displaying very large volumes of data using a variety of rendering techniques, including visualising them as 3D cubes; mapping data onto complex geometries and as a 3D rendered objects, all of which are supported by Open Inventor.

In addition, Open Inventor supports dynamic rendering. This is an important aspect for some of the capabilities that are unique to GeoTeric, such as our patented Adaptive Geobodies technology, which renders the Geobodies as they are growing.

At GeoTeric we are always trying to push new boundaries. We are therefore very excited about Open Inventor’s remote rendering technology (RemoteViz) and its potential to allow us to define innovative ways of team collaboration.

About GeoTeric

GeoTeric provides Cognitive Interpretation software, Services and Support to the global oil and gas industry. Their Cognitive Interpretation system allows you to see the geology in your seismic data before interpreting. GeoTeric has completed more than 300 successful projects for over 100 E&P companies worldwide, enabling a data driven, interpreter guided approach for understanding and defining the 3D morphology of the geological elements imaged within the seismic data.

About Open Inventor

Open Inventor® is an object-oriented 3D software development toolkit (SDK) for the development of professional interactive applications using C++, .NET or Java, on cloud, desktop, and mobile environments. Its easy-to-use API, extensible architecture, and large set of advanced built-in components provide developers with a high-level platform for integrating, in a simple and consistent way, powerful 3D visualization and analysis capabilities into software applications for the energy sector.
