At SEG 2018, Emerson to demonstrate integrated E&P software solutions

Wednesday, October 17, 2018

Emerson will showcase advanced technological solutions comprising its Exploration & Production (E&P) software suite and services at the Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG) 88th Annual Meeting and International Exposition in Anaheim, CA, October 14-19.

Presentations delivered daily at Emerson's booth #2141 focus on the industry's digital transformation, with targeted presentations on machine learning, together with geophysics, workflow automation, and cloud delivery.

Innovative implementations of machine learning methods with geophysics include the application of deep learning to full-azimuth seismic gathers for automatic subsurface feature classification, marking a step-change in prestack interpretation. A machine learning methodology that uses an ensemble of neural networks for predicting probabilistic rock models from seismic and well data will be presented, for a better understanding of reservoir heterogeneity. Workflow automation demonstrations featuring chronostratigraphic interpretation, geologically-constrained velocity models, and incorporating uncertainties into the static and dynamic reservoir modeling workflow will also be presented.

The theatre presentations are supported by Paradigm 18, Emerson's recent synchronized release of exploration and production software. Some of the features of this release will be highlighted in shale analysis case studies.

Demonstrations will be presented on the cloud, including a special presentation about high-performance computing.

Customer presentations include high-resolution 'holographic seismic' processing and imaging, and the application of advanced seismic interpretation methods.

The popular Lunch & Learn sessions include:
• Seismic Geomorphology: Mitigating Lithology Prediction Risk and Providing Context for Further Investigation - Applications And Workflows, presented by Henry Posamentier, Monday, October 15.
• Unconventional Field Development in the Cloud, presented by Hassane Kassouf, Tuesday, October 16.
• Holographic Processing and Imaging Yields Highest Possible Seismic Resolution, presented by Norm Neidell, Wednesday, October 17.

Duane Dopkin, executive vice president of Geosciences for Emerson's E&P Software business, is speaking at the Geophysical Return on Investment for Unconventionals, SEG's Business of Applied Geophysics (BAG) Plenary Session on Wednesday, 17 October, 1:50 - 5:50 PM.

Additionally, Emerson geoscientists will have a significant presence at this year's SEG technical program, with five technical papers and poster presentations in a variety of sessions.

Live software demonstrations are offered daily, beginning at 9:15 AM. One-on-one demonstrations of the company's latest technologies and applications are available upon request.
