DENVER – A preview of Paradigm 2011 was a feature for Paradigm at the Society of Exploration Geophysicists International Exhibition.

“Redefining interpretation is the drive for this year and the next,” said Philip Neri, VP of Marketing. “Redefining through iteration will give a constant ‘interpretation’ and SKUA ties all the models together mathematically.”

“Looking to the future, in 1Q 2011, Paradigm 2011 will tighten integration, lead to understanding of the data and anomalies, fuel fact-based decisions, and give a clear picture of the uncertainty and risk.”

“Paradigm 2011 will take advantage of the Epos IV infrastructure introduced at the SEG annual meeting last year,” said Duane Dopkin, EVP Technology.

The coming release addresses attention to:
• Data size and diversity
• Delivery
• The science behind the interpretations
• The evolution of collaboration.

“The industry is going to petadata with teradata models,” Dopkin said. “On delivery, Paradigm 2011 will work on Windows 7, LINUX, and in high density computing structures. It will give true 3D models and use full azimuth data.”

The key technical breakthroughs scheduled for Paradigm 2011 include:
• Pre-stack data in a common interpretation canvas to qualify data assets and prospects
• Angle domain, full azimuth, and anisotropy imaging
• Interactive illumination and reliability assessment of seismic events
• Scalability, adaptability, and open data management
• Concurrent interpretation and geological modeling to predict fault seal, fracture, and spill point probabilities.
