AMSTERDAM -- Bull and Foster Findlay Associates (ffA) have entered into a partnership agreement to deliver ffA GPU-enabled 3D seismic analysis software to the oil and gas industry on Bull computing systems.

The two companies will work together to promote the use of interactive methods for 3D seismic analysis using HPC technology, in particular the use of GPU accelerators. These are fitted into Bull server nodes, from the entry-level tower chassis systems with GPU and graphics cards, suitable for seismic interpretation workgroups, to very large hybrid clusters located in data centers.

ffA's domain expertise and involvement with a large number of major oil and gas companies' petrotechnical users combined with Bull's expertise in hybrid systems will provide a fast track for innovation and improved turnaround times within 3D interpretation and modeling workflows, the companies say.
